Monday Night AFL, Crows vs Saints Round 7
Monday Night AFL and we have one of the first games in Adelaide for a while as the Adelaide Crows host the St Kilda Saints in Round 7, of the 2020 AFL Competition.
Despite being winless, the Crows have a good record against the Saints in recent seasons and will be looking for their first win.
The Saints were deficient in their loss last week and will be looking to fix up some issues as they struggled to score in the remaining three quarters.

The Crows looked a little better in their clash with the Eagles but are struggling to hit targets with their disposals. They lost to the Eagles by 33 Points.
The Saints may have put the cue in the rack against the Dockers after a dominating first term. They were outclassed in the final three quarters and were not allowed to control the football. They lost the match by 6 points in a disappointing effort.
Why the Crows Can Win
The Crows welcome back their big forward Taylor Walker for this clash, and although he has been out of form, if he can present as a target up forward and take some grabs, it may cause the Saints some headaches. They do lose veteran midfielder Rory Sloane for this match who is out injured.
The Crows also have an excellent record against the Saints despite their current form and still have a midfield that can get the footy. A lot will have to go right as they have been penniless this season, but they are at home and could surprise.
Why the Saints Can Win
The Saints were disappointing in their loss to Fremantle last week after having a significant quarter-time lead. They have shown they can play some good footy this season and have bounced back well after a loss this year.
They have a talented young team and will look to control the football and play more offensive as they failed with that last week. They will make it very tough for the Adelaide Crows.
The Crows have struggled all season and that will probably continue despite being back in Adelaide.
Our Pick – St Kilda (Win)
Fantasy Pick – Brad Crouch + 82.5 Fantasy Points
Rory Sloane is out for this match which will mean more possessions for the Crouch brothers. Brad is a ball magnet and should cover this number.
