Magpies (Likely In: Nick Daicos Out: Taylor Adams)

Giants (Likely No Changes Made)

What We Like

While Collingwood may be the favourites, the GWS Giants can easily be considered the best in-form team as of right now. This comes after defeating the Blues before the finals and defeating the Saints and Port Adelaide away from home. Expect them to be filled with confidence whilst the Magpies have some players coming back from injuries at the wrong time of year.

Match Result GWS Giants $2.47

Final Thought

Luckily to be playing after avoiding a long-term suspension, Magpies’ Brayden Maynard has recorded 20+ disposals in the club’s past four games when they were considered favourites. Maynard can be expected to do the same this weekend as he looks to make up for putting the fans through a heart attack when he was sent to the judiciary.

Lions (Likely No Changes Made)

Blues (Likely In: Harry McKay, Jack Martin, Jack Silvagni Likely Out: Matt Kennedy, Jesse Motlop)

What We Like

Charlie Cameron has easily been one of the Lions’ best players this season and easily the club’s best forward. While some may struggle in the postseason, Cameron has made it his own, having been the first goal-scorer in the last two Preliminary Finals the club players at home.

1st Goal Scorer Charlie Cameron $9.00

Final Thought

Looking to reach the Grand Final for the first time since 1999, the Carlton Blues head into the clash in terrific form after back-to-back victories against the Sydney Swans and Melbourne Demons. Whilst the Lions are favourites, the Blues, at the price they are at, are too good not to go with. Expect the Blues fanbase to be loud and proud at The Gabba.
