It's not unusual for teams to string together a couple of shockers, but there are some warning signs flashing. McDonald's been poor and Weideman hasn't stepped up so the Hogan loss is starting to look a bit of a worry for scoring power. Backline has always been a bit shaky if you're running Frost and McDonald (May been injured) together. Midfield has good contested ball winners but lacks spread. Gawn might struggle against double teams ala Port.These new rules really suiting Melbourne to a tee
Anyone willing to put up their hand and admit they were wrong yet?
Yeah nah - over hyped all year as seen by the terrible start and beat a bottom 4 team last night who could have put them away completely in the first half.Melbourne still paying $2.15 to make the 8 after last night. Lever and may back mid season. Good value there
Ill go in on that, on the Melbourne to make 8 sideI have zero futures bets but would be happy to lay them at 2.15 and have been on here all year saying they are HUGELY overrated (except for last night when I said they were a good bet )
Yeah and Geelong were supposed to be 0 and 3 to start the year so you could wait to back them to make the 8They'll most likely beat the saints returning from Perth next week, then have a massively undermanned Richmond. If they win those two they're into $1.60ish. I'm chucking a few units on them to make it.
Will be hard to take the spoon off CarltonLike St Kilda to make the 8 at $4.80 and to a lesser extent Gold Coast spoon at $7 though that one will be tight with their start (worth remembering they were 3-2 last year and finished on 4 wins though their draw was abnormal).
getting a bit excited about saints...maybe next year.Like St Kilda to make the 8 at $4.80 and to a lesser extent Gold Coast spoon at $7 though that one will be tight with their start (worth remembering they were 3-2 last year and finished on 4 wins though their draw was abnormal).
