AFL Live Essendon Bombers vs Richmond Tigers Stream AFL Football 2016 Online, AFL Round 10 Match will be kick off at MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 28 May 2016 online, 19.25 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Dreamtime at the ‘G presents the Tigers with a golden opportunity to continue their resurgence.
Essendon continues to play with spirit, but the losses are piling up. The story has been the same against Carlton, Sydney, North and St Kilda – substantial periods of competitive, but an inability to play four quarters.
Richmond do appear to be back in form, following up their last gasp win over Sydney with a strong win in Perth over Fremantle. There is more flow to their football now and their confidence is up as they commence what they hope is a march up the ladder.
Richmond is up 6-4 in their last ten meetings. The Tigers have won the last three, by an average of 19 points. Six of the last seven matches between the two sides have been under the total match points.
Essendon has only covered the spread once in their last five matches. Richmond have covered it at their last two after being 0-7 to open the year. Two of the three times the Dons have covered the spread this year have been at the MCG.
Richmond are 16 from 33 at MCG since the start of 2013, at -13% POT and 36% ATS. 58% of these matches have gone the under.
Trent Cotchin ($4.50) continues to slide under the radar and now it’s time to win some cash on the back of his 39 possessions last week. He’s also paying $3.25 to have the most handballs and against the struggling Bombers, you’d think he’d run-a-muck. Dustin Martin ($7) has averaged 110 in his last 3 games this year in Fantasy and after the Saints clocked up 6×100+ scores against Essendon last week, It’s pretty safe to say that Dusty will feature highly again at juicy odds.
Richmond find themselves in a good space in looking to build their momentum after two wins in a row, and there aren’t many better teams than the Dons to do it against. The Tigers do tend to hold their form once they find it, and lesser sides don’t trouble them when this is the case.
Essendon will try and frustrate the Tigers with a possession game, but don’t have enough quality to match it with the likes of Cotchin, Martin, Deledio and Edwards through the middle. Alex Rance will lead the Richmond defence, and Jack Riewoldt will be hard to stop up forward.
This should be a comfortable win to the Tigers.
