Happy Friday Tipsters,
Round 19 is upon us! Here in Adelaide we are having a beautifully warm 20 degree day and it is a nice change from the miserably cold weather we have had of late.
Ok so from this week onwards I am trying this put out positive thoughts get positive results in the hopes Adelaide can squeeze into the 8 and pull a 2016 Western Bulldogs outfit (ha ha here’s to hoping)!
Essendon v Sydney
These are the type of games we want to see on a Friday night and it will be a classic! Sydney coming off an embarrassing loss to the Suns and Bombers coming off a win against Freo. Bombers missed out on a real percentage booster last week kicking 13.21 and will need to kick straight if they want to beat the Swans. Swans have won the past 8 against Essendon and this will mark the first time these 2 teams play in Melbourne since 2014. This will be the first interstate loss for the Swans this week.
Bombers by 5pts
Richmond v Collingwood
This will be a game not to be missed and channel 7 aren’t even showing it *face palm*.
Tigers are after a record breaking 23 straight games won at the MCG and will not want Collingwood raining on their parade. I was going to tip the Pies for the upset until I seen De Goey wasn’t playing.
Tigers by 20pts
Geelong v Brisbane
Geelong won last week and got kicked out of the 8! They are hard to beat down at the Cattery and the Lions haven’t won there since Chris Scott was playing for them! The Lions look the goods for next season. They knocked off Hawks in Launceston 2 weeks ago and nearly upset Adelaide last week so why not give them a go.
Lions by 3pts
Greater Western Sydney v St Kilda
Last time these 2 teams met they produced a draw in Round 5. GWS have shown they are a real contestant now their injured players are coming back and will hope to shake up the top 8. They should win this game and win it well but …. Positive thinking…
Saints by 2 pts (definite wishful thinking at its best)
Gold Coast v Carlton
Suns caused the upset of the year last week. Carlton are still rubbish with 1 win this year.. WOW..
Suns by 37pts
Adelaide v Melbourne
HUGE game for both teams. Melbourne’s 2 losses to Geelong could come back to bite them in the a** BIG TIME! Whilst Adelaide stuck it out and got the win in Brisbane. Here’s a drinking game for you, every time you hear a Lever comment take a shot I promise you that you will be very merry by the end of the game. This will be a ripper Saturday night at Adelaide Oval and I am hoping the crowd gets behind the boys and helps them get the 4 points.
Crows by 22pts
North Melbourne v West Coast
Eagles travel to Hobart to face the Roo’s. The Roo’s will be spewing the Eagles finally learnt how to win away from Perth. Kennedy to kick a handful.
Eagles by 29pts
Western Bulldogs v Port Adelaide
Port should win this – but here’s to hoping.
Doggies by 9pts
Fremantle v Hawthorn
Hawks have dominated Freo winning 10 from the last 11 by an average of 48 points. The Dockers have caused a few upsets at the new Optus Stadium and I am hoping very much that they pull out all stops to beat Freo this week. Fingers Crossed.
Dockers by 10pts
How’s that for some wishful thinking hey Bahaha?!…. Enjoy your weekend folks and stay safe! Go Crows!
