Richmond Tigers: Won over Melbourne, 85-42
The 2016 and 2017 AFL Premiers will face off at Marvel Stadium in this week’s Saturday night blockbuster.
The Western Bulldogs completed the impossible three years ago, but have since fallen from grace, back into another rebuild of its list.
Richmond has patched its injuries well, bringing in young talent including Jack Ross and Sydney Stack, who have both been outstanding in recent weeks.
With Alex Rance out for the season with an ACL injury, Dylan Grimes has stepped up for the Tigers, but he will have to step up even further this week with David Astbury also missing.
The Bulldogs have plenty of tall timber in their forward line and can expose the absence of Rance and Grimes.
If Josh Schache and Aaron Naughton can hit the scoreboard, they can cause an upset here.
Western Bulldogs vs Richmond Tigers Round 7 – Player Goals Tips
Marcus Bontempelli to kick a Goal
This young superstar has turned himself into a very capable forward when he takes a break from the midfield. The length and smarts of Bontempelli allow him to play the game differently, as he knows when to lead and when to rove, which doesn’t always come naturally for a midfielder. The shorter Tigers midfielders will not be able to nullify the Bont.
Dustin Martin to kick a Goal
Since Dustin Martin has returned from his suspension, he has played very well and looks like he is working back to his best. After copping a hard tag last week, we think Martin could enjoy some more freedom this week and look to go forward, where he can impact the scoreboard.
Western Bulldogs vs Richmond Tigers Round 7 – Player Disposal Tips
Toby McLean to get 20 Disposals @ $3.50 – Could I get a bonus on this bet?
Toby McLean has had an inconsistent season so far, especially when he has moved forward. A move to the midfield is in order to help McLean regain confidence. We think this is the perfect week for the Bulldogs to shift him closer to the ball and eclipse his 20-disposal average at very healthy odds.
Kane Lambert to get 25 Disposals @ $1.53
No player in the entire competition goes as quietly about their business as Kane Lambert, who gets the job done every week. It was only four weeks ago when Lambert tallied 34 disposals against a strong GWS midfield. The odds are always healthy for Lambert and he has been a cash cow for us in the past.
Western Bulldogs vs Richmond Tigers Round 7 – Total Points Tip
Total Match Points Over 163.5 @ $1.88
This match is being played at Marvel Stadium under the roof — a delight for fans looking to escape Melbourne’s wild weather this weekend. As always, logic determines that under perfect conditions, scoring should be higher, especially for two attacking sides.
Bulldogs vs Richmond Round 7 line betting and result tips
Match Result: Richmond Tigers to Win @ $1.28
Line Betting: Western Bulldogs +20.5 @ $1.90 – which bookie offers the best Dogs odds?
The 20-point line is large enough to take as the Bulldogs will challenge the injury-riddled Tigers. The Tigers will still be better to take outright as the $1.28 odds suggest.
