Geelong FC vs St Kilda Saints
Geelong suffered their second surprise loss in the past five weeks when, as they did against Brisbane back in round 13, they blew a substantial third quarter lead.
Last week it was to the Adelaide Crows which, unfortunately for St. Kilda this week, means the Champion side will be out to set the record straight.
Fremantle faced Geelong after the Brisbane loss and were dealt a 41 point hiding.
Geelong are giving St. Kilda 45.5 here which isn’t bad, given that last time these two met, back in round 21 of last year, Geelong were victorious by 42 points. Saints won twelve games last season and have only three to their name for 2013, so the line is worth close consideration.
St. Kilda recorded their fourth consecutive loss last week when, albeit narrowly, were defeated by Port Adelaide, 97 – 92.
It was a much better performance from the Saints than there three previous losses, which were by an average margin of 45 points however, it will still not be good enough for them to challenge Geelong who will win this one comfortably.
