Melbourne Demons vs Fremantle Dockers betting preview
Will the Melbourne Demons bounce back this Monday when they battle the Fremantle Dockers at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns, or will this be another opportunity gone begging?
Simon Goodwin’s Demons could’ve been sitting inside the top eight if they won against the Sydney Swans last week, but the loss has put them in a difficult position with three rounds remaining. The transition from Ross Lyon to Justin Longmuir has been successful for Fremantle, as the Dockers have been competitive in most matches this season despite winning only five games.
Fremantle escaped its loss against the Tigers without sustaining any injuries, but the same couldn’t be said about the Demons, as Angus Brayshaw hurt his ankle amidst a terrific first half and Nathan Jones strained another quad. The Demons have won the last two clashes against the Dockers, but the unique atmosphere in Cairns could provide another upset and see them miss the finals.
Melbourne Demons vs Fremantle Dockers Disposals Tips
Caleb Serong to get 20+ disposals
The outright leader in the Rising Star market at $2.25 has taken his game to another level in the second half of this season, pushing Michael Walters out of the midfield in the past few weeks. Serong puts his head over the football and wins it consistently, even against the bigger bodies. Serong matches up with Dustin Martin at times in round 15 and still had 22 touches.
Melbourne Demons vs Fremantle Dockers goalscorer tips
Christian Petracca to kick 2+ goals
The difference between Christian Petracca’s best and worst games have always been his downfall, which was on display in ironic fashion over the past two rounds. He was clearly a game-winner against the Saints before making little impact against the Swans. We expect Petracca to take this game very seriously and move forward with intent, as his best games include hitting the scoreboard, which he has done 13 times this season.
Melbourne Demons vs Fremantle Dockers AFL Betting Match Prediction
Melbourne Demons to win by 1-24
The Fremantle Dockers are starting to build a very consistent brand of football, but they need more firepower going forward before they can start becoming a contender. The Demons will be good enough to win without blowing out the margin. They simply must win this match to stay relevant.
