Horror round for tipsters so far with only the Bulldogs getting up as favourites, today’s games will be no different expect results we wouldn’t normally expect.
Sydney v Brisbane
If Sydney do not get there first win here today then you just don’t know when they will, both sides have been very poor in the last halves and between them have only won one last quarter. Swans are heavy favourites but on form really shouldn’t be, they are a shadow of what they have been for the past decade right now but need to find a big lift from all there stars. It has been a season of nothing from the Swans so far. The Lions even though they have been given a couple beatings they have played good football in patches, they still rely on too few to do too much but will give the Swans a good run early. The Swans will need to find the spark big time if they give the Lions a sniff they will be in it to the end.

Melbourne v Hawthorn
Big contest today at the MCG, if the Demons win they sneak back into the top 8 but a loss will see them fighting it out with 4 other sides stuck on 12 points. A loss for the Hawks will see them stranded on the bottom of the ladder if Sydney win as expected the win two weeks ago showed the Hawks can still play good footy but they have been exposed by the fast hard running sides. Lewis facing his old side today adds a bit of spice but the Hawks will show a lot of respect to their old team mate. The Demons are a team on the rise and won’t want to let this big chance slip to keep a little a head of the chasing pack. Melbourne are a head of the Hawks in most stat categories especially in the midfield and goal efficiency, this is where they will get control of the game and put the hurt on the Hawks.

Freemantle v Essendon
The Bombers make the trip West to face the semi rejuvenated Dockers side, the Bombers are one of the teams on the rise but have some woes in front of goal which will decide the game today. The Dockers will be tough at home and will fight but also are one of the worst sides for accuracy in the league and struggle with clearances compared to the Bombers despite having big Sandilands dominating ruck contests.
There is a lot to like about both these sides and the game can go either way but can see the Bombers win if Daniher can put in a blinder the Dockers won’t be able to stop him.
