quirky stat but Port Adelaide are the 7th team in VFL/AFL history to start the season from top and end the season on top .

Based on form and history , this Port side will be hard to beat. Should be favourites against Geelong, and favourites in the prelim at home. Reckon they are good shots to make grand final from here at least. (haven't checked odds yet)

Based on what? They're easily the worst side to go a whole season on top, the second worst minor premier since 2005 (Freo 15'), playing a side which absolutley obliterated them about a month ago, then will come up against a side with a very good record against them at Adelaide Oval in the semis. Very good chance I think of them not winning a game, based on form and history.

Cats by a mile
Tigers by a mile
Dogs
Eagles by a mile.

Too easy, whatever that is, multi it up.

Since 119, Port have only beaten the Cats, twice.

However, one of those was the last time the Cats played at Adelaide Oval.

Know records are there to be broken. I'm pretty sure Geelong have a not so good record in finals in Adelaide all up. They are 0-3 in Adelaide for games combined against the SA teams in Finals.


Port at anything above $1.80 for me is a good bet. Just feel like Port match up better against Geelong around the ground as well. I wouldn't look too much into the home and away flogging Port received up there in QLD.

Hmmm and we have a bye before the finals.

Plot thickens.

Does the Cats have one of the worst records off the bye?
Cats have been the worst team off a bye, but most of those games were home and away.

I reckon Cats were fantastic for most of the season, but terrible last two games. I won't be touching the game.

They did beat Essendon after the "so called" bye this year though. Although Essendon could've actual been the bye and they haven't done anything since?

I could be wrong, but the Cats have not won a final outside of Victoria in over 15 years. :think:

Then again, I think they have only played 2 finals outside of Victoria in that time. :drunk:

The Bulldogs price is about right, they should start favourite there. Seeing that they are priced around $1.80 .

The talk is just a matter of the venue. Saints v Bulldogs in Adelaide, or Saints v Bulldogs at Metricon . From what I hear, nothing has been confirmed yet in terms of venue.

AFL seem to want the game played in Adelaide , where they can get around 20,000 people. If AFL are looking to save costs, then playing it in QLD seems the logical thing to do.

St Kilda are rubbish, I don't think the venue matters for that game. Dogs will want Naughton and Wallis back though, 2 of their best forwards out evens it up a lot (I'd still tip them over saints though).

The game's in Adelaide now anyway.

I simply cannot get enough of adding neale for brownlow and serong for rising star to every bet.

Im taking :
tigs u40 + neale and serong @ 3.12

WC u40 + neale and serong @ 3.14

And because I love em, and we torched the dogs earlier in the year and are 2/2 in radelaide this year:
saints u40 + neale and serong @ 3.81
