|Geelong v Sydney
Tips by: Calvin
|Is there any better way to kick off a weekend than a Friday night Preliminary Final? I don’t think so.
Separating the superstars in this game was always going to be tough. But after weighing up form and previous history here, the answer has to be Patrick Dangerfield (just). He’s paying $3.30 to have the most touches tonight and is coming off a nice 35 against the Hawks two weeks ago. He had 34 on the Swans in round 16 and as we know, Sydney can give up plenty of the ball to their opposition midfielders. Josh Kennedy ($3) is the obvious danger after his mammoth 42 disposals last weekend, but I still have Danger beating him by a couple.
|GWS v Western Bulldogs
Tips by: Roy
|The first thing that caught my eye when I crunched the numbers in this game was the fact that Heath Shaw went bananas last time he met the Dogs back in round nine. He had 38 touches that day and to crack the 30+ mark again, and can be snapped up at juicy odds of $4.10.
The Dogs will be desperate and when it comes to applying pressure, there isn’t many better than Luke Dahlhaus. He has had 7 and 9 tackles in his finals games so far and at $5.50, he’s certainly worth a dabble. In Fantasy, you can find him way down in Group B as the favourite at $3.
Fresh off 39 touches against the Hawks last week, Jack Macrae ($4.50) is great value to get the most touches. He’ll find plenty of uncontested ball and will be right up there with the leaders.
At $3.25, you can’t go past Marcus Bontempelli in group B when it comes to disposals. He’ll attract some attention, but when doesn’t he? Group B is always a weak field and in there, Bont is the only shining star capable of a 30+ game.
