AFL Live Collingwood Magpies vs Western Bulldogs Stream AFL Football 2016 Online, AFL Round 10 Match will be kick off at MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Sunday 29 May 2016 online, 15.20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
A resurgent Collingwood will relish another test of their mettle against a Bulldogs outfit on the rebound.
Collingwood are emerging from the darkness of the first part of the season, with fast starts the feature of their recent wins over Brisbane and Geelong, which came of the back of disappointing losses to Carlton and West Coast. They appear to have turned the corner.
The Western Bulldogs got brought back a peg by GWS last week, which means their last four week block has seen defeats to contenders like the Giants and North Melbourne, but also victory over good teams like Adelaide and Melbourne.
Collingwood lead the Bulldogs 7-3 in their last ten meetings. Only two of these games have been at the MCG, back in 2010-11, with the Pies winning both.
The Bulldogs have only played four matches at the MCG under Luke Beveridge, winning three of them at +65% POT, and covering the spread in three of them.
Collingwood are 42% ATS at the MCG under Nathan Buckley. The Pies have started $2.60 or greater nine times since the start of 2014, winning three at +23% POT, and covering the spread six times.
The Bulldogs have been professional in their matches so far this season, winning the matches they should, and only going down to quality opponents by fair margins. They couldn’t handle the run of GWS last week, but there are few that can, and the Pies are now covering the ground very well themselves.
The Dogs record at Etihad does see them somewhat underrated at the MCG, even though they play well there. Many had Collingwood in the eight at the start of the season, and they are finally starting to show why.
This is one of those rare games where the Pies look good value the win, but the Dogs look good value to cover a smallish line.
