Western Bulldogs vs Collingwood Magpies Preview
It’s a shame this game will be played behind closed doors because we should be in for a belter between two sides with serious top four credentials.
Collingwood are always one of the toughest teams to get a read on at the start of the season – especially on the back of last year’s miserable finals defeat to the Giants.
The Bulldogs also tasted defeat against GWS in the finals, but Luke Beveridge’s side has only gotten stronger after adding Josh Bruce during the offseason.
There isn’t much separating these two clubs and it would be shocking if more than 10-points decided it.
Collingwood has won three straight over the Dogs dating back to 2017, but the one trend worth hanging your hat on is the Doggies’ perfect 4-0 record last year as the line underdog at home.
This is also an extremely tough start to the season for the Pies with games against Richmond, Hawthorn and Brisbane to follow. With everything else going on right now, don’t be surprised if they underestimate this gritty Bulldogs outfit.
