The final match of the 2020 AFL Season and we have a Monday Night Football clash at the Gabba, between the Collingwood Magpies and the Port Adelaide Power.

This match can reshape the current AFL Ladder, with the Pies needing a win to avoid finishing 8th, and a matchup out West, with the West Coast Eagles. A victory for the Power will mean they finish the 2020 AFL Season on top of the Ladder.

Prediction

Both sides have incentives to win this match, but win or lose for the Power, and they still get a double chance and the likelihood of hosting two finals in Adelaide. For the Pies, a loss means they have to travel to Perth to play the Eagles, which they did earlier in the year and lost by 66 Points.

The Power have been winning, but it has been against 4 lower-ranked teams. The Magpies look to be hitting some form and need the win in this clash.  It is a challenging game to pick, but the Magpies might be good enough in this clash, as this is the first time the Power have played a quality side since their massive loss to the Cats in Round 12. The Pies have a strong defence and should be able to stop some of the Power forwards, to help set up the win.

Our Pick – Collingwood (Win)

Player Prop – Ollie Wines + 76.5 Fantasy Points

Wines will play the majority of the game in the middle of the ground and has an average of over 90 in his last three matches. The Pies can also be prone to conceding Fantasy Points to opposition midfielders. Should cover this number.

Player Prop – Josh Daicos + 69.5 Fantasy Points

Daicos can be an X-factor in this match and has the skills to do some damage. Has a season average of 69, and has averaged 74 over his past three matches. Given the Magpies will need the win and a spark, he may even step up and kick a couple of goals to cover this number.
