Current Head to Head Odds
Brisbane – $1.45
Collingwood – $2.75
The Lions have had an extended much-needed break and go into this game as favourites. The break would have done them well as they have looked sluggish in their last few encounters despite winning all the matches.
The Pies are a chance in this clash, but it is hard to get excited about them with the likes of Sidebottom, Treloar, De Goey and Howe all out of the side.
The Lions should win this clash, and Charlie Cameron will provide the Magpies defenders with some headaches after a much-needed break. If the Lions can control the football in the middle of the ground, they should win.
Our Pick – Brisbane (Win)
Player Prop – Brandon Starcevich +41.5 Fantasy Points
Plays in the Lions defence and the Magpies leak the 4th
amount of Fantasy Points to opposition defenders in the AFL this season. May get some chances for some cheap stats on the back half.
Player Prop – Grant Birchall – + 60.5 Fantasy Points
Although he has had a few quiet weeks, Birchall is a good user of the football and can rack up cheap stats when playing against a side that leaks fantasy points to opposition defenders.
Player Prop – Charlie Cameron – 2+ Goals
Cameron has had a break and will be out to regain some form. Does not need a lot of room to score a goal or two and should get a stack of chances in this contest.
