Collingwood vs Western Bulldogs / Etihad Stadium / 7:50pm
The Dogs have won 6 of their last 7 against the Pies with a 2 point defeat as the only loss in that period. Pies are coming off an impressive win over the Saints while the Dogs are reeling from a 2-goal effort against Adelaide in horrid conditions.
Under the roof at Etihad should see a cleaner game, though in front of goal the Dogs have the worst accuracy in the comp. Jack Macrae has been phenomenal the last few weeks, he’s averaging 40 touches in his last three. The Pies seem the better choice on paper, but the H2H record favors the Dogs and they match up very well against the Pies.
Josh Schache makes his debut for the club. I’m sure they’re hoping he can improve their goal kicking accuracy down at Whitten Oval.
Not confident enough to back the Bulldogs outright, but the 17 point line looks safe to bet.
