Thursday, 14th June, 7:50 pm AEST, 2018, Adelaide Oval, Watch on the Seven Network and the Fox Footy Network.
Thursday night footy is back this week and kicking off Round 13 will be the Port Adelaide Power and the Western Bulldogs at Adelaide Oval.
Port Adelaide is coming off a scintillating victory over the reigning premiers at the same location last week — a great win for the club which the Power hope to build upon.
The Bulldogs have not tasted victory since Round 8 when they knocked off the Lions by 14-points. Last week, Luke Beveridge’s men enjoyed their bye and accepted the well-deserved rest, readying themselves for the match to come.
The Power find themselves in a position to charge at a top four position on the ladder, winning this match would be the first stepping-stone for that campaign.
The Bulldogs are fighting for more than just a victory, they are also attempting to get back some respect after a disappointing month of football that has seen the 2016 premiers dive down the ladder.
A plethora of the important statistics are in favour of Ken Hinkley’s Port Adelaide. The Power have a better points for and a lower points against, resulting in a much better percentage than the Bulldogs.
With all signs pointing to a Port Adelaide victory, there are still bets that can be made throughout the night to make the Thursday night fixture more appealing.
Here are the punts we have identified that are going to result in a victory for us this Thursday night.
Port Adelaide Power vs. Western Bulldogs Round 13 – Total Points Tips
Port Adelaide Power 100.5 Over/Under
The Port Adelaide Power have not had the opportunity to score heavily against a weak side yet this season, so we expect the Power to use this chance to hit triple digits this week. The Bulldogs’ defence has been very undermanned and has struggled to keep the opposition from piling on big scores. As percentage is beginning to play a big factor come September, we think the Power will make the most of this week and really put the foot down.
Western Bulldogs 60.5 Over/Under
Under @ $1.44 with CrownBet
As much as Luke Beveridge would hate to admit it, the Bulldogs are one of the worst scoring team throughout the competition. With no designated goal-kicker, the Dogs have struggles each week to tally a decent score. Now the equation becomes very ominous for the Doggies as Port Adelaide have one of the tightest defences in the league, the third best side points-against wise so far this season. Richmond only scored 58-points last week with such a well-oiled forward structure, meaning it is only going to be an uphill climb for the Dogs.
Port Adelaide Power vs. Western Bulldogs Round 13 – Promotional Market Tips
Each week Ladbrokes provides a disposal double market for the best midfielder for each side to get a high amount of possessions and win the match. This week the Power should win the match fairly easily, so the only factor that we need is for Ollie Wines to find the footy. Wines played one of his finest matches last week against the Tigers where he accumulated 29 disposals. We think against a less competent midfield, Ollie Wines is in prime position to get 30 touches.
Charlie Dixon to kick 3+ Goals and Port Adelaide win @ $2.75 with Ladbrokes
Charlie Dixon was marking every ball that came his way on Friday night and we think he will do so again. Even with Alex Rance breathing down his neck, the big full forward took four marks, all of which were contested, making his presence known on the ground. This week against the smaller and struggling Bulldogs backline, we could see a bag of goals this Thursday night.
Port Adelaide Power vs. Western Bulldogs Round 13 – Quarter/Half Market Tips
Quarter by Quarter Leader
Port Adelaide Power / Port Adelaide Power / Port Adelaide Power / Port Adelaide Power @ $1.45 with Sportsbet
A new market we have decided to explore this season is the quarter by quarter market. The bet is simple to understand, which team will be ahead on the scoreboard at the end of each quarter. We see an outcome very similar to what the bookmakers have projected. Only the Power will be in the lead each quarter. Once the early margin has been made, the Power will not lose their lead.
Power vs. Bulldogs Match Predictions
Match Result: Port Adelaide Power @ $1.12 with William Hill
Line betting: Port Adelaide Power -37.5 @ $1.90 with William Hill
What more can be said about this game other than the Power will win? It is beginning to look very dangerous for the Bulldogs if they keep playing the same brand of football they have over the last month. Expect a big victory for the Power and a massive margin by the end of the night.
