AFL Live Collingwood Magpies vs Geelong Cats Streaming Free 2017 Regular Seasons Round 22 match will be kick off at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne, VIC, Australia, Saturday 19 August 2017 online, 14:10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Geelong are the $1.48 favourites in the head to head betting with CrownBet and come off an impressive win at their home ground of Simonds Stadium last weekend, defeating the Tigers by 14 points.
They did that without a host of their star players in Joel Selwood, Mitch Duncan and Tom Hawkins, while Patrick Dangerfield and the maligned, Steven Motlop, had big games.
On the same weekend, Collingwood ventured over to Adelaide where they were rolled by finals bound Port Adelaide by 27 points. The Magpies are out of finals contention and are in 13th spot on the ladder but they can trouble the third placed Cats.
Nathan Buckley’s side have a good record against Geelong and rank higher in a number of key areas, including total disposals, uncontested possessions, marks and clearances.
We can expect the likes of Adam Treloar, Taylor Adams and Steele Sidebottom to have plenty of influence in the middle and if they can find the winning formula up forward they are right in it. Ben Reid comes off a four-goal haul last weekend but it wasn’t enough.
At Geelong, look for Patrick Dangerfield to star again, while other key players include Harry Taylor and Zach Tuohy. Taylor got the better of the competition’s bets defender last weekend in Alex Rance, while the former Blue, Tuohy is one of the recruits of the year.
If the Cats get the points here they will be safe and secure in the top four, locking in a double chance. However, if they miss out, they will be opening the door for both Sydney and Port Adelaide and they face a tough contest in the final round next weekend against GWS.
Collingwood’s duo of Jordan De Grey and Will Hoskin- Elliott pulled up sore after the Port Adelaide game and may miss this weekend. Daniel Wells is a chance to come back in.
Geelong are likely to be without Rhys Stanley after the big man hurt his calf last weekend but Mitch Duncan returns from suspension.
