I Listed the venue as it turned to be a big factor in overs/unders

Only lean so far is Essendon (after watching them last week at TD , they were very close and full of run, only inaccurate kicking and solid performance from Kangaroos kept them from winning)

No value deals this round.I am not touching the essendon, pies and st kilda match this week. However freo might be worth a punt. They have geelong covered and they play well at Skilled. Might take a punt on North over 15.5

Brisbane are nice value at that price. Inaccurate kicking has been a factor for them lately so indoors will be a good environment. It will be a fast paced game so the over is a definate. Black, Power and Brown can't be shut out for 2 weeks in a row and based on that horrific performance on Saturday night, Matthews will make them turn around.

I'm not really liking anything this weekend apart from a Brisbane win, Brisbane and Essendon to sail over 200 points and perhaps Port to cover against the Swans and a Kangaroos X Eagles X Crows parlay.

Essendon V Brisbane (TD) Saturday Afternoon

Essendon the last few weeks have lost their run in the late stages of games. They have been playing poor football of recent weeks. However, with that said, Brisbane played shocking football last week - there were only about 3 Brisbane players who could hold their head up high. So one may think who is going to win this match. I say Brisbane will. Power, Black and Brown had poor games last week, but the class of those players, surely they won't have 2 bad games in a row.

At the corresponding match last year, Essendon beat Brisbane in a high scoring affair but this was in round 17. At that stage, Brisbane had severe injuries to key players and all the young players were tired from a whole season as most were playing in their first season. We are at round 8 and I can't see the same thing. Brisbane's young players are playing fine football before last week. Brisbane's older players were playing good football before last week and at the moment, Brisbane have nearly a full list to pick from. Round 17 last year, they only had about 25 players to choose to field a 22 man side. Big differences.

I was high on Essendon's bandwagon at the start of the season thinking they were going to make the finals, but since their great start to the year, they have struggled. My advice to all is whoever doesn't want to pick a side for this game, pick the over, as this is indoors and this match will fly over 200 points. But I think Brisbane are more class than Essendon at the moment and I think Leigh Matthews will pump Brisbane up after last week's performance.

Also, players are on their last legs to be dropped. Brisbane have guys like Selwood, Allan and Drummond knocking on the door to be selected. Not to mention Mitch Clark is getting back to football and some of our draftees from last year are knocking on the door to be selected like Schmidt and our ruckman in Leunberger (Wood is not playing good enough football to be considered a senior option at this point in time). Guys like Sherman, Rischitelli, Fixter, Patful, Begley, Stiller, McDonald and the like are close to being dropped from this team. It would not surprise me to see Sherman and/or Rischitelli dropped this week. They are very close to it. Those guys I have mentioned need to perform to stay in this team because we have players knocking on the door. That fact with other facts, I think Brisbane will play inspired football this week and beat Essendon.

Brisbane ML @ $1.90

Brisbane V Essendon - Over whatever total you can get.

Here are the recent meetings between the two teams.

1 2006 17 Bris Lions 18.15 (123) vs Essendon 25.10 (160) TD Lost -37
2 2006 2 Bris Lions 17.13 (115) vs Essendon 15.7 (97) Gabba WON 18
3 2005 17 Bris Lions 17.12 (114) vs Essendon 14.17 (101) Gabba WON 13
4 2005 6 Bris Lions 21.10 (136) vs Essendon 12.16 (88) TD WON 48
5 2004 12 Bris Lions 25.12 (162) vs Essendon 14.12 (96) TD WON 66

Take the over!

Port Adelaide V Sydney

Sydney are playing rubbish football at the moment and Port are flying on top of the ladder. Questions were asked of Sydney last week and I think they will put in a terrific performance this week. Port Adelaide are playing close to how they played in their premiership year. They are playing good football and regardless of the outcome, I expect this game to be close. Which way it will turn, I don't know. I have a feeling Sydney will do enough this week to win, but if they do, it won't be by much.

Port Adelaide do play well at the SCG and their young players are playing terrific football. Sydney last week looked flat. They looked gone. But you can't write a team like Sydney off after their last few good years.

Here are the recent meetings between the two.

1 2006 17 Port Adel 7.8 (50) vs Sydney 10.17 (77) AAMI Lost -27
2 2006 2 Port Adel 15.16 (106) vs Sydney 11.14 (80) SCG WON 26
3 2005 8 Port Adel 6.9 (45) vs Sydney 9.15 (69) SCG Lost -24
4 2004 12 Port Adel 20.12 (132) vs Sydney 8.12 (60) AAMI WON 72
5 2003 1QF Port Adel 13.10 (88) vs Sydney 15.10 (100) AAMI Lost -12
6 2003 13 Port Adel 14.15 (99) vs Sydney 8.12 (60) AAMI WON 39
7 2002 15 Port Adel 14.10 (94) vs Sydney 13.14 (92) SCG WON 2

Port have won 2 of their last 3 at the SCG and have won 4 of their last 7 against the Swans. The margins have not been that close, however, I think taking Port at the line is the wise thing to do. It's hard to go past the football Port are playing at the moment.

Port Adelaide -7.5

Essendon are playing back to back at the Dome.

Let's have some odds on Bolar's chance of getting lucky with a chick within the next 2 years.

I forgot how decent the chicks are in melbourne. Excellent bodies. Should come back here more often. In actual fact, should relocate here. On the train I heard a chick talk to her friends about handcuffs and stuff. Good shit!

But back to the betting market, there was this hot girl today. Approached me and asked to borrow my phone coz she was out of credit and her Dad was meant to pick her up. Would have been about 19 or 20. Good looking, good body.

Anyway, Bolar gave her my phone and what did Bolar do after she rang? Bolar didn't get her phone number and she left. Bolar got shy. I'm regretting it now. Something could have happened. Mind you, I have the people's numbers she called in my phone. Should try and reach her.......

So that may give Jim an idea on odds. Perhaps we can do v-betting on it.

Bolar is sad :sad:

What a shithouse game. I'm surprised 36000 turned up for that match. I would have left at quarter time.

Brisbane suck. Their performances the last 2 weeks were worse than Richmond's against Geelong. That performance today is the worst by any team this year. I hope Leigh brings back Mitch Clark this week so we can have another forward target so Brown doesn't get double teamed and Brown and Patful need to do the work. Then we may see some different results with anothr big man up forward. Shocking performance.

Let's hope Port cover against the Swans. Give me a 50/50 weekend.
