When the fifth-placed Port Adelaide Power host the 18th-placed North Melbourne Kangaroos at Adelaide Oval on Friday night, footy fans could be in for an absolute mauling.
Ken Hinkley’s Power have been very impressive this season and look fantastic heading into round six.
For Brad Scott’s Kangaroos, the situation couldn’t get much worse — the men from North Melbourne loom as the AFL’s biggest crisis story of 2019.
Although only two wins separates the clubs, the Power look to be in a completely different class compared to North Melbourne, which has the lowest percentage in the league thus far.
The recruits for North Melbourne will have to face their old teammates this week as Jared Polec and Jasper Pittard transitioned to Arden Street during the trade period.
With the amount of upsets sweeping the competition, anything can happen on the day, but fresh off an upset win over the reigning premiers away from home, we can’t see Port dropping one against the Kangaroos.
Let’s take a look at where the value sits in betting.
Port Adelaide Power vs North Melbourne Kangaroos Round 6 – Player Disposal Tips
Robbie Gray to get 20 Disposals @ $1.53
Once the game’s best player after winning the renowned Coach’s Award, Player’s Award and leading the Power to the finals, Robbie Gray has been a consistent gun for Port, but hasn’t been able to reach his absolute prime due to a number of injuries. This season has been a slow start for the crafty forward and dangerous midfielder, especially since he has barely set foot outside 50. We expect Gray, who is building some form and midfield time, to gather 20 touches against a team he enjoys playing against.
Jamie MacMillan to get 25 Disposals @ $1.72 – Is there a bonus available for this bet?
The running half back has become a very valuable position in the AFL, especially if you know how to do it well. Jamie MacMillan goes under the radar of most sides as he quietly racks up over 25 touches each week. He averages 24 disposals and can easily exceed 30 against the young new-look and young Power forward line.
Port Adelaide Power vs North Melbourne Kangaroos Round 6 – First team to Tips
Port Adelaide First to 6 Goals @ $1.33
With so many young players taking big steps in their development, the Power have been able to use Travis Boak and Tom Rockliff in their optimal positions, which has helped the midfield immensely. North Melbourne will not be able to handle the running power of Port Adelaide and will be under the hammer early.
North Melbourne First to 6 Behinds @ $2.85
Port Adelaide has recorded a good accuracy rate on the season thus far, as opposed to the Roos who sit second last in the stat. When you can only convert 38 percent of your shots on goal, you will most likely be the first side to six behinds.
Port Adelaide Power vs North Melbourne Kangaroos Round 6 – Total Points Tip
Total Points Under 171.5 @ $1.88
Back before the season began, these same two clubs were fixtured to play in the JLT, which ended up being a goal-fest. Both coaches were unhappy with the amount of goals conceded, which leads us to believe they will focus solely on defence in this match and produce a dour affair.
