The Start of Round 11 of the 2020 AFL Season and we have two AFL Saturday Matches to look forward to.
It all starts in Adelaide with the Power hosting the Tigers at the Adelaide Oval. We then head to the Gabba where the Lions and the Bulldogs will be looking to bounce back after losses earlier in the week.
Check out some of the highlights below.

Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers
Round 18 2020, Richmond 15.11 101 – Port Adelaide 9.9 63
(Richmond by 38 Points)
Last 5 Meetings
Port Adelaide – 2 Wins
Richmond – 3 Wins
The Power held off a spirited Bulldogs side last Monday Night and managed to win the match by 13 Points.
The Tigers were too good for the Lions on Tuesday night for a 41 Point Victory. It will be interesting to see how they deal with the four-day break in this clash.
A couple of changes for both sides for this clash. The Power have lost Sam Mayes to Suspension and Justin Westhoff gets dropped. Jarrod Lienert and Scott Lycett come into the team.
The Tigers have managed Captain Trent Cotchin for this clash, and he will not be suiting up. The same can be said for lively goal sneak Jack Higgins. Josh Caddy and Daniel Rioli both come back into the team.
Current Head to Head Odds
Port Adelaide – $1.80
Richmond – $2.0
This could be an interesting game, with the Tigers resting their captain and also being on just a 4 daybreak. The Power took a lot of contested marks last week and found some form after a slow start. The Tigers have been on a roll for a while now after a slow start to the season and may be due for a lackluster performance.
If the Power can control Dusty Martin and Charlie Dixon keeps up the excellent form up forward, they should win the match.
Our Pick – Port Adelaide (Win)
Player Prop – Robbie Gray + 54.5 Fantasy Points
Will spend the majority of the game up forward, but conditions are projected to be greasy, and Gray is generally very good with pressure up forward. Should rack up some tackles to go with some disposals, and if he snags a couple of goals he should cover this comfortably.
Brisbane Lions vs Western Bulldogs
Round 20 2019, Brisbane 14.14 98 – Western Bulldogs 11.14 80
(Brisbane by 18 Points)
Last 5 Meetings
Brisbane – 1 Win
Western Bulldogs – 4 Wins
The Lions were outclassed by the solid game plan from the Richmond Football Club and probably struggled with just the four-day break. They lost the match by 41 Points.
The Bulldogs were pretty good against the Power on Monday Night, but did fall short to lose by 13 points.
A few changes for both sides for this clash with the Lions losing Cam Rayner and making three omissions. Grant Birchall, Daniel Rich, Dan McStay and Matt Eagles all come back into the team.
For the Bulldogs, Hayden Crozier has been dropped for this clash, and they have made two omissions. They finally get some marking power back with Aaron Naughton back in the side. Bailey Dale and Ryan Gardner both come back into the team.
Current Head to Head Odds
Brisbane – $1.40
Western Bulldogs – $3.05
Although the Lions are on a shorter break for this clash, they have not had to leave Queensland all season and are pretty good at bouncing back from poor performances. They are strong in all areas of the field and will look to rectify the issues that occurred in their loss to Richmond.
Aaron Naughton may help the Bulldogs with marking Power up forward, but the Lions are too talented to drop this one and should win the match at home. Daniel Rich and Grant Birchall are two ins that provide elite ball use from the defence, and Dan McStay has been taking contested marks this season. The Lions ins should help them win this match.
Our Pick – Brisbane (Win)
Player Prop – Charlie Cameron 2+ Goals
The most dangerous forward on the ground, Cameron kicked 4 against the Bulldogs last season and should get a lot of chances to kick a goal in this clash. May also cover his fantasy line of 58.5 in this clash.
