There's been a lot made of Freo's inability to play away from home but I'm not buying that. Round 1 they were undermanned in KPF stocks and May and Lever made them pay, but they were getting it in plenty. Losing to Melbourne by 22 points is not disgraceful.

They were 2 men down Vs Carlton, with no Fyfe and the mids were well beaten. -21 for inside 50's. I can't see the Crows with their one A grade midfielder dominating the Dockers on ball brigade. Even NM who were two men down matched Adelaide for inside 50's for most of the match until the fewer rotations got to better of them. 53-59

Personally I think Freo have a superior midfield and should win the inside 50 count comfortably. Their forward line is looking as good as it has all season with Lobb, Tabs, Walters, Schultz and Freddy playing together for the first time this year and they should be able to hit the scoreboard.

2.5u - Mitchell more disposals than Oliver - $1.70 - PointsBet
The Dees don’t tag and when Mitchell doesn’t have to face a tag he generally gets off the hook. Has had attention from Harmes in the past and battled injuries in other games which has led to lower totals in 2018, and 2020, but Mitchell seems to be back at his best with a season low of 37 after his tagged game of 24. Also backing Mitchell for more disposals than Oliver, a good chance Worpel plays a run with role on Oliver making it harder for him today. Even if he doesn’t, when both guys go at it Mitchell usually racks up more of it.

2.5u - Petracca over 27.5 disposals - $1.80 - TopSport
If Hawks decide to use a tag it should go to Oliver which means Petracca runs free. Has cleared 3/4 this year.

Im not saying they wont tag Oliver but surely you always go to the more dangerous player. Oliver wont hurt you on the scoreboard or by foot, tag petracca. Seems so obvious but im not a premiership coach...

Worpel played a tagging role last week. He may go to Petracca.

Intriguing battle between the Crows and Heave Hos.

Meek only played about 50% game time last week and Darcy still managed to kick 3.2

Lobb back from injury, replacing Meek, will he spend more time in the ruck than Meek did?

I know a lot of people here are on the Lobb train but I'm hoping Darcy is the main beneficiary of Lobb's inclusion.

Darcy paying $8 for 3+, $26 for 4+, $81 for 5+ on TAB.

Adelaide's tall defenders: Butts is listed at 198cm, Smith at 189, Doedee at 188.

Darcy (202) / Lobb (206), Taberner (198), Treacy (193)

Assume Butts goes to Darcy/Lobb, Doedee to Taberner, Smith to Treacy?

There's going to be a big mismatch here somewhere.

Butts with six games under his belt is the only match for the resting ruck height-wise.

If the Freo mids get on top, on a sunny day in Adelaide, the Freo tall forwards could run riot.

Then you've got Minairo, Walters and Colyer to crumb, any one of them could kick a handful.

Too many train tickets to choose from, but I'm going with Darcy.

The last 3x that Dangerfield has missed a game, the following game upon his return he has recorded 29+ disposals.
Hello resident Crows fan,

Who are you expecting to play on the resting ruck in the Freo game today?

Treacy is third tall behind Taberner and the resting ruck, who would you guess will go to him?

Darcy paying $8 for 3+, $26 for 4+, $81 for 5+ on TAB.

According to Justin Longmuir, Darcy will be the no.1 ruck with Lobb providing the chop-out but playing mostly forward.

Speaking to ABC Radio on Saturday, senior coach Justin Longmuir said he expects Lobb to play close to a full game.

“He’ll still go into the ruck for six to eight minutes a quarter like he always does and we expect him to compete really hard,” Longmuir told ABC radio.

Crows dont have really many tall defenders, they may even consider Frampton going back down there to help out.

2.5u - Rohan/Hawkins 5+ goals combined - $1.72 - SB

0.75u - Rohan/Hawkins 7+ goals combined - $3.75 - SB

North have been getting belted all season. The equivalent 5+ goals bet has saluted all season vs the Roos. These two haven’t been at there best but should be really looking to damage the scoreboard today in front of the home crowd.

TAB have McDonald 2+ @ $1.75 which is way overs in my opinion, SB has him $1.36 for 2+ & Lads $1.44.

4u - Tom McDonald 2+ @ $1.75 (TAB)
2u - Tom McDonald 1st, 2nd or 3rd goal @ $4.40 (Lads)
1u - Neal-Bullen 2+ @ $4.00 (SB) this is overs IMO

Neal-Bullen 2+

1u @ $7.70

Fremantle don't play the Adelaide Oval well. They have a 1 win 8 loss record there.

5 of 9 times they have posted 60 points or less.

Worth a play for me for Freo to score '60 points or under' at $6.00

I'd just be a bit wary of putting too many multis involving Freo goalscorers here........


Seeing that around 10 of the Dockers have played on this ground in 2019 for Freo as a team (against Port Adelaide or Adelaide). The players that have played here in the past most have played a game or a couple. Don't underestimate the familiarity surroundings. 1st time for Freo players to play on this ground: Heath Chapman, Frederick, Josh Treacy, Sean Darcy, Serong........

as I speak odds are roughly a flip of the coin before the bouncedown. I been saying all week the Crows will win and will stick by it.
