Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
The Magpies will take on the Bombers on what will be a massive Friday night match at the MCG where the are the pretty short priced favourites.
The Pies have turned things around in the last few weeks with three wins on the trot including a huge win over the Crows in Adelaide on the weekend and they will go into this with plenty of confidence.
The Bombers snapped a losing streak with a solid win over the Dockers but still look a grade or two below the Pies best.
Collingwood to win although we think we will get a better price later in the week, but still happy to back them at their current price otherwise.
