Carlton Blues vs Collingwood Magpies Preview
A clash between the two oldest rivals in the league and the consequences of starting the season 0-2 is something both Carlton and Collingwood do not want.
Despite going down to Richmond by 25 points last weekend, there was a lot to like about the Blues who showed some fight and remained highly competitive throughout the entire match.
Collingwood lost to both the Western Bulldogs and Adam Trealor last Friday night in a relatively hard-fought battle.
The last thing anyone who bleeds black and white needs after the horror off-season is to be 0-2, let alone giving the Blues their first win for season 2021.
Head to head betting has put the Magpies $1.78 favourites at the time of publishing this preview with the Blues at $2.05.
Magpie fans will take comfort in knowing they’ve won their past three encounters against the Blues, however, based on what was dished up in Round 1, Carlton are a good bet at those odds.
I’ll take the Blues head to head.
