We take a look at Saturday nights (18/5/2019) AFL Round 9 match which is between the Essendon Bombers and the Fremantle Dockers. The Bombers go into the match as the pretty short priced favourites despite three losses in a row.
When: Saturday May 18, 7:25pm
Where: Marvel Stadium
Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
The Bombers suffered another loss over the weekend to continue their bad start to the season however they have been playing good footy in patches whilst the Dockers are now coming off back to back losses.
This is a must win game for both teams if either of them want any chance of making the finals this year so it should be a good quality match on Saturday night.
The Bombers are rightfully the favourites for the game but they do look pretty short in the market based on the teams form this year and the Dockers have claimed a few good sculpts.
We have the Bombers on top but as the market has them this really isn’t a good betting match if you like them.
