Current Head to Head Odds
North Melbourne – $6.50
Port Adelaide – $1.12
The Kangaroos may have won the last match between the two sides by a significant margin, but the Power has improved a lot in a season and will want the win to keep their top spot on the ladder.
After watching last week, it is hard to see the Kangaroos having any chance in this match. The Power will be too strong in the middle of the ground and trying to contain Charlie Dixon will not be an easy task.
Our Pick – Port Adelaide (Win)
Player Prop – Conor Rozee + 52.5 Fantasy Points
This is a favourable matchup for Rozee as the Kangaroos leak the second-most fantasy points to midfielders this season and the third most to forwards. Rozee is a player the Power will need firing come finals, and this could be a game where he gets some confidence back.
Ed Vickers-Willis + 41.5 Fantasy Points
Probably not the most exciting pick, but Vickers-Willis plays on the back half, and the Kangaroos are chipping the ball in their back half a lot lately. Has a season average of 46 and should cover.
