Sport Betting Tip: Geelong Cats - Collingwood Magpies, AFL
- Title : Sport Betting Tip: Geelong Cats - Collingwood Magpies, AFL
From Rounds 1-18, Geelong’s set shot percentage was 57.9, (second in the league.) Last Thursday night against Port Adelaide their shot percentage fall to 49.9 and they lost the match, Geelong have won 12 matches from 17 played in the regular AFL season. Collingwood Magpies have won nine games only. Geelong are ranked first in points scored this year (72.5 points per game) while Collingwood are only the 13th. I expect Geelong to win this match.
Collingwood have won the last two encounters between these two but they only scrapped into the finals and geelong have been the better side this season.Geelong only lost against best, Port Adelaide and Richmond in last 9 games - other than that 7 wins and good form before this knockout battle.
For me, Geelong should win this match. Collingwood took over in last two h2h matches, but Geelong played really strong in last month. Collingwood Magpies were often struggling on the road this season. They have lost five away matches from nine played. Geelong Cats have won six from nine at home.
Generally in the afl the team that wins also covers. Especially applies to low spreads like this. Geelong have prepared the better of the two teams. And this line is a tad low. Collingwood caused the upset of the week in the first of the finals matches beating the Eagles 76-75, but Gellong had the best attack of the league, so I think that they can win this match and cover the handicap.
My prediction: Geelong Cats cover the spread on -1,5 points today.
