Tip – In a heart-breaking 10-point loss to the Magpies, the Geelong Cats have proved to have a rather soft underbelly. Having blasted through the first half the AFL season, the Cats have looked ordinary since the bye weeks and appear to be unsuited to the intensity of finals footy. They must refresh and regather quickly to defeat the Eagles.
For their part, the Eagles demolished the Bombers in Finals Week 1, however, that accounts for little here. This is Geelong and it is the MCG. Despite their great form in Melbourne in the 2018 Finals Series, the Eagles are always vulnerable in Melbourne and we like the Cats to cut through them on a path to a Preliminary Finals appearance.

Tip – The revelation of AFL season 2019, the Brisbane Lions were hugely disappointing playing in front of Brisbane’s largest ever AFL crowd as they were thrashed by Premiership favourites, Richmond, last week. To be fair to the Lions, the Tigers were just too good. The proposition of facing the Giants is arguably not as taxing.
Many experts feel that GWS may have already played their Grand Final in overcoming the Bulldogs in Week 1 of the Finals last week. The Giants will need to lift considerably to meet the resistance of the Lions who will have more than 37 000 loud and boisterous Brisbane-ites in their corner. As we all know, there is nothing a Brisbane crowd love to do more than barrack against any side from Sydney. Brisbane should be too good for the Giants to qualify for their first Preliminary Final since 2004.
