Melbourne Demons vs Sydney Swans Preview
One of those classic “If I had told you that…” type of matches.
Top of the ladder 7-0 Melbourne plays host to the 5-2 4th on the ladder Sydney Swans in a potential blockbuster finals preview.
Everyone knows the Swans got lucky last week, but if you believe in the football gods, you’ll know that the karma bus might come for them at some stage during the season, hopefully not this Saturday night at the MCG.
Melbourne are 7-0 and had to win the hard way, having to come back from 19-points down after half-time against North.
It’s a sign of a good footy team that they know how to win good, bad and ugly.
Melbourne now falls into the category of a good football team.
The Dees are clear favorites going into this game, and many suspect the Swans’ brilliant start to the season may be starting to run out of gas, despite being in some close encounters of recent weeks.
I’m keeping this a short-sharp and simple Same Game Multi.
The Champion Data Devourer has informed me that Eight of Melbourne’s last nine matches at the MCG have gone UNDER the total match points line – back the under as leg one.
For the second and third leg, I’m hoping that some of the young guns from both sides manage to kick a goal with both Hayden McLean and Kosi Pickett as anytime goalkickers.
Pretty nice value at $4.29.
