AFL Collingwood vs Geelong Betting Tips
MCG, Saturday 29th May 1.45pm (AEST)
The Pies woes continue as they sit in 16th place on the AFL ladder with a 2-8 record. Can they turn their form around against one of the best teams in the league in Geelong?
It was another heartbreaking result for the Pies on the weekend, as they went down by just Power by just one point at the MCG. They led for the majority of the game, keeping the Power to just four goals in the first three quarters before allowing four in the last quarter alone to lose in a thrilling affair.
Geelong were impressive again in Round 10, taking their winning streak to three games as they defeated the Suns by 34 points at GMHBA Stadium. The star trio of Jeremy Cameron, Tom Hawkins and Gary Rohan were in great form once again for the Cats, botting seven goals between them as the Cats piled on 91 points.
The Pies are still battling injuries to key players in the lieks of Mason Cox, Jamie Elliot, Jeremy Howe and Levi Greenwood, but apart from that their injury list actually looks pretty solid at the moment. As does the Cats, who will really only be without Patrick Dangerfield, Mitch Duncan and Gyran Miers from their best 22.
The Cats start as 24.5 point favourites here, which seems about right given the two teams form at the moment. The Cats are 2-1 at the MCG so far this season, losing to the Demons and taking out the Hawks and most recently, the Tigers in a Friday night bloodbath by 63 points. They certainly know how to play the MCG, so it won’t seem like an away game against an out of form Collingwood side.
The Cats have won five of their last six games, with those five wins coming at an average of 49 points. They should be able to cover here against the Pies.

Tom Hawkins booted four goals in the Cats win over the Magpies in the semi-final last season and has already kicked 22 goals in 10 games this year. He has played just two games where he has failed to kick at least two goals.
Jack Crisp cleared the 25 disposal mark again on the weekend, making it six of 10 games so far this season. Like him to do so again on Saturday to continue a purple patch of form.
Cam Guthrie is our safe leg for the game, especially with Mitch Duncan likely out for this game with concussion. He’ll be called upon even more in the midfield and should clear the 25 disposal mark for the 9th time in 11 games this season.
