St Kilda defeated Melbourne at the MCG last season and historically have the Demons on a leash. Despite their win, I think Melbourne were still very underwhelming and this St Kilda side will have a lot of confidence going into the game. Saints to win at $3 (TAB) is nuts I reckon.

Also very confident on Essendon beating North Melbourne. Will definitely back a -11.5 line.

I reckon Sydney are absolutely cooked. I wouldn't back them to beat anybody. I think Richmond at the line of 14.5 is a gift.
In fact Sportsbet has them the third longest odds to make the 8, $5.50, only ahead of Gold Coast and Carlton.
It probably means they’ve priced the game well if we both think there’s value for both teams. I guess our perspectives come from us looking at two different data sets, I’m looking at history to say they normally play well there and you’re looking at this year in a more isolated fashion. The odds for them to miss the 8 are pretty damning but I guess I’m betting on them not being as rubbish as they’ve looked so far, and given the venue and their weakened opposition I think they have more of a chance than their odds suggest this week. Good luck!

Adelaide have only scored over 75 once, I don't see how Adelaide could score enough to cover that line.
Agree! Crows averaged approx 110pts per game a couple of years ago but now have had trouble kicking goals every game thus far, their scoring is nothing like it used to be and I cant back crows at a large line until something changes. GC to cover.

Similar thoughts as I stated last week - they look a legit bottom 4 side to me.

Especially with the BOM forecasting 2-8mm across the morning and afternoon. Some services forecasting as high as 20mm.
I'll be getting on unders and +GC as soon as totals are available.

Boosted to 2.08 with SB. Put it on yesterday so odds have probably shifted a little. I think all 3 are absolute locks. Agree re Sydney. They look like sliding this year, Franklin doesn’t look right to me at all

Crows averaging just under 70 points a game. At that line it gives the expected Suns score to be 42.

By my calcs I had the OU at 145.5 but that's without weather.

No team in the competition is currently averaging 100 points per game for the season (BRIS with 95.3 is currently the highest) First time since 1968 R20 that no team in the comp has averaged 100 points per game

Forget GC at the line, I'll be going with GC for the win.

Adelaide are horrendous. If I didn't know better I would think the players have already checked out of 2019.

Melbourne seem too short against St Kilda as well.
