Essendon Bombers vs Brisbane Lions Preview
Friday nights game between Essendon and the Brisbane Lions looks to be one of the easier games to tip this week.
Essendon are a bit of a shambles at the moment and only just fell over the line against Adelaide on the weekend.
They take on Brisbane who are flying despite having a minor scare against Melbourne in Round 8.
Lions should be to good and too quick for the Bombers here.
