Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers Preview
The Tigers have roared back into finals contention with a nail-biting win over the Lions last week, but that result has come at a cost with star defender Dylan Grimes suffering a hamstring injury.
Richmond’s fight-back from 30-points down was a true testament to the heart of the yellow and black, and although there’s still plenty of work to do, the Tigers can feel good knowing they now enter a very favourable stretch of schedule.
That said, a trip to the Adelaide Oval is never easy, and nobody knows that better than Richmond supporters.
The ‘Tiges have lost three of their last five games to Port at their home ground, but they did get the last laugh winning by 12 at the MCG back in Round 13.
The status of Dustin Martin remains a complete unknown, but his absence shouldn’t worry Tiger fans too much given Tom Lynch, Shai Bolton, and emerging star Noah Cumberland’s recent goal-kicking form.
For the Power, there’s nothing left to play for at this point, but you do sense this is the one club that could play spoiler over the remaining three weeks.
Port has come extremely close to causing an upset over Melbourne, Geelong, and Collingwood over the last three weeks, form that has left the bookies no other choice but to install the Power as favourites.
Diving in at the current quote feels risky given what’s on the line for Richmond, but when you factor in the last three games between these two have been decided by no more than two goals, a line bet does look the safest play.
