Despite not having registered a win in season 2017, the Sydney Swans head in as raging $1.11 favourite’s in the head to head betting and are expected to break through for an overdue victory.
The Grand Finalists from 2016 were no match for GWS last weekend, going down by 42 points and a feature of their losses has been the relatively poor form of a number of their midfield guns from years gone by.
Luke Parker, Kieren Jack and Daniel Hannebery have all fallen away and the Swans, who brutalized sides with their dominance at winning the contested football and clearances, are a shadow of their former selves.
Injuries and a tricky draw have also played a role early on but they will need to come ready to play against a Carlton outfit that are capable of causing an upset if they get a sniff.
The Blues were smashed on the road by Port Adelaide last weekend to the tune of 90 points but should be much better suited back in Melbourne. After defeating Essendon at the MCG in Round 3, the Blues headed to Etihad a week later and were it not for a lapse in the third term they could have finished a lot closer in their 26 point loss to the Gold Coast.
Brendan Bolton’s side will look for big games from Marc Murphy and Patrick Cripps, who has been a tad down this year, and they will need something out of the box from maligned forward, Levi Casboult, who was one of a few shining lights last weekend.
Across the ground, however, the Swans should have enough firepower to take this out. The Swans pushed the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium as recently as three weeks ago and if they play anywhere near to that form, they should account for the Blues.
Look for big games from Lance Franklin up forward and Sam Reid. That pair have combined for 24 goals this season and can stretch the Blues backline.
