AFL Season 2019 Finals Week 3

Richmond Tigers vs Geelong Cats – September 20

Tip – The odds say that the Richmond Tigers are twice the team that the Geelong Cats are. While the bookies rarely get it wrong, we don’t believe that the Tigers are twice as good as the Cats. However, with the Cats without the rubbed-out Tom Hawkins due to suspension they may struggle for goals scorers. Meanwhile, at the Gabba against the Lions, the Tigers kicked 18.4 and are packed with firepower.

The Tigers look to be peaking at the right time with Dustin Martin back to his Brownlow and Norm Smith Medal winning best form, and goals keep on raining in from Tom Lynch and Jack Riewoldt. In this repeat of the classic 2017 Preliminary Final, the Tigers look to be absolute specials to beat the Cats although it could be closer than many pundits are suggesting.

Collingwood Magpies vs GWS Giants – September 21

Tip – Putting away the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba and dumping the team of the year out of the finals series in straight sets speaks volumes to the quality of the Greater Western Sydney Giants. As the most unlikely of the four Preliminary Finalists, who is to say that the physical play of the Giants in this finals series can’t brush aside the ‘Pies in front of the Melbourne faithful at the MCG?

For their part, the Magpies will be well-rested and with an awful lot to play for after their heart-breaking Grand Final loss to the Eagles in 2018. With 89 000 Magpies supporters among the 90 000-crowd expected at the MCG, Collingwood should have too much support on their side for a tough Giants team at long and attractive odds for the upset.
