Only the brave bet against Richmond at the G, and it should be no different this afternoon when the Tigers play the Saints.
We’re all aware of Richmond’s record-breaking win streak at the MCG the last two seasons, and against a poor St Kilda side, they should record a comfortable win.
Richmond were disappointing against the Eagles last week, but they still rank #1 in the competition for goal assists and an impressive 13 tackles a game inside 50. This forward pressure is what’s kept them on top, and the Saints defence won’t have any answers.
Dusty has been quiet the last few weeks, but will look to return to form against the Saints. In this fixture last year, he kicked 2 goals and had 36 touches going at 77% efficiency. He also topped it off with 3 Brownlow votes.
Tigers to finish strongly.
Richmond 3Q -11.5 / 1.90 / Sportsbet [1.5u]

Dusty over 26.5 touches / 1.95 / Bet365 [1u]
The Lions recorded an outstanding win over the Hawks at home last week, and will look to break another hoodoo this week against the Swans. It’s been 10 matches since Brisbane last bet Sydney.
Will likely be 11 in a row after today, with a strong Sydney outfit coming to town. They still haven’t lost on the road this season and they don’t mind the Gabba having beaten the Lions there by an average of 43 points the last four times.
Swans should be too strong tonight.?

The Blues head to the Cattery for the first time in over 2 decades. This is a disaster match up and Geelong should enjoy a very comfortable win. Gaz has been under the spotlight this week after a poor performance against the Bombers, expect him to bounce back. His last two games at Geelong have been phenomenal having a combined 60 touches and scoring 9 goals.

GWS welcome back Josh Kelly but are without Toby Greene. The Bombers will look to mirror their fantastic win over the Cats last week.
