NORTH MELBOURNE KANGAROOS VS ADELAIDE CROWS

SUNDAY APRIL 11, 1.10 PM, MARVEL STADIUM, MELBOURNE

The two teams who were tipped to struggle the most in 2021 are set to do battle at Marvel in Melbourne, in the Sunday afternoon game; but wait no one told Adelaide they were such a poor team, they are playing great. Yes, Adelaide have won 2 from 3 and are suddenly looking much better than they did in 2020 when statisticians and historians were making cases for the poorest season of all time, they stunned Geelong in round 1 and beat the Suns last weekend.  North Melbourne, conversely, have been terrible and suffered 3 hidings in the opening 3 rounds, against Port, Gold Coast and last weekend against the Dogs who won by 128.  Morning showers might clear in time for this game to be played in good conditions, but none of that matters, as this game is under the roof, giving players ideal environments, no matter the weather outside.

Experienced Kangaroos pair Aiden Bonar and Luke McDonald return to the starting squad for this game, that surely the Roos are thinking about being more competitive in, than they have been in the past few games.  They do lose some stars due to injury this week however, as the Roos will have to make do without Jared Polec, while they did not select Jed Anderson or Lachie Young.  Adelaide will look to celebrate young Keays’ 50th game in style, but will have to do so without Rory Sloane who is injured, while they did not pick Nick Murray.  Darcy Fogarty comes into the side and will play from the bench, while a medical substitute for each team will be named just before bounce-down.

North Melbourne will take some confidence from the fact that they defeated Adelaide comfortably in the 2020 season, as they ran out 69-point winners, on the Gold Coast.  In the 2019 clash, in more traditional settings, and locations, the Roos were again too good for Adelaide, winning by 2 goals, with the difference in 2021 being that Adelaide look much improved, whereas Norths look dreadful.  Hence it is little surprise to see Adelaide at $1.40 and predicted in the margin betting markets to win by about 3 goals, while the Roos are $3, which tells us that, they are a good a chance as they have been so far to break into the winners’ circle.

PREDICITON: Adelaide by 15.

BETTING TIP: $2.05 for Adelaide to win by 1-39 is a fairly safe bet.
