Can Geelong snuff out the Port Adelaide revival when the two sides clash at GMHBA Stadium this Saturday in round 10 of the 2022 AFL season?
After sitting through the Geelong loss to St Kilda in round nine and looking at some unfiltered numbers, we have determined that the Cats are the least efficient team in the top eight. The energy and effort expended to kick a Geelong goal is unofficially higher than any of their immediate competitors.
This can be infuriating for fans and punters alike who spend portions of their weekend screaming at television sets as the Cats take the most laborious route possible. Geelong are winning every second game at this stage, so they are naturally due for a victory in round 10. AFL betting markets have missed this obvious form-line, meaning reasonable odds are available.
There is much talk of a Port Adelaide mid-season rival after the Power slumped to 0-5. But of their four subsequent victories, only the effort against the Bulldogs has any great merit. It could be argued that Port were fortunate to meet the depleted Eagles and struggling Kangaroos when they did, while they also faced a wayward Saints outfit on a sweaty Cairns night when kicking goals was virtually impossible.
The Port coaching staff will be pumping up the squad with this revival talk, which will buoy their spirits until the next collision with hard reality. Will that arrive in round 10 courtesy of the Cats, who are coming off a loss and therefore due for a win? Time will tell.

Key matchup: Sam De Koning vs Todd Marshall
Geelong key defender Sam De Koning is an eye-catching talent with unlimited upside. The 21-year-old stands 204cm, weighs 101kg and looks destined for a bright future. His contested marking skills are without peer for a player so young, so keep your eyes open for the flying blonde ponytail when the ball is kicked into the Geelong defensive zone.
Port Adelaide key forward Todd Marshall is another exciting young prospect. The 23-year-old is still finding his feet but is averaging an impressive 1.9 goals per game this season and should grow into his position. If Marshall can have an impact inside 50 this weekend, it could help the Power keep this competitive.
Geelong vs Port Adelaide betting strategy
We are slightly surprised by the odds being offered here for the Cats. The early line looks about right at 19.5 points, as does the total game score at 168.5 points. Mostly sunny conditions are predicted, which will help with scoring, but the Cats at home should surely be too strong for the fake surging Power. We will stick with our most profitable 2022 play here: Geelong by 1-39, currently returning $2.02 on Neds. It’s hard to imagine a blowout unless the Cats miraculously discover free-flowing, efficient football and kick over 120 points.
Geelong by 1-39 points
Geelong vs Port Adelaide same-game multi
For punters who crave the thrill of multiple simultaneous bets, we will be taking Geelong 1-39, into Jeremy Cameron 2+ goals, into Zak Butters 20+ disposals. This three-legger will return a handsome $3.70 courtesy of Ladbrokes. Butters and Cameron have proven themselves reliable over the stretch, and we are reasonably confident on this play.
