AFL: Dockers out to end Swans' winning run

Sydney Swans will be looking to make it 11 wins on the bounce when they take on AFL finals hopefuls Fremantle Dockers at the SCG on Saturday.

The Swans continue to go from strength-to-strength and currently sit a massive 12 points clear at the top of the ladder.

Sydney are 3.00 to go on and win the 2024 grand final and on current form they will take stopping.

Fremantle will be out to upset the applecart, however. The Dockers are proving to be inconsistent this season, but their win over Gold Coast last Sunday moved them to fifth on the ladder.

They have a good shout of making the top eight and playing finals, with a favourable run of fixtures set to follow after this SCG test.

Fremantle are 1.33 to make the top eight and a shock win over Sydney would certainly boost their chances.

Simply no stopping Sydney

Sydney are the standout team in the AFL this season and have won the last 10 games on the spin.

The Swans were a dominant force once again at the weekend when beating Greater Western Sydney by 27 points in the derby clash.

John Longmire’s side are the hot fancies to make it 11 wins on the bounce, but must be careful not to allow complacency to creep in, as they sit three wins clear at the top of the ladder.

They have won the last two games against Fremantle and both were in the west at Optus Stadium, including a Round 9 victory this season.

Sydney smashed the Dockers by 48 points on that occasion and can be backed at 6.00 to win by 37-48 points in this latest meeting.

The goals were shared around in that win over GWS with Chad Warner, Tom Papley, Hayden McLean and Will Hayward all snaring two each.

Papley can be backed at 12.00 to grab the first against the Dockers or 1.15 to score at anytime.

Freo capable of an upset

Fremantle have been inconsistent throughout the season, but still manage to find themselves in fifth spot on the ladder.

After smashing Melbourne in Alice Springs they were disappointing in a heavy loss to Western Bulldogs, before bouncing back against the Suns last weekend.

So how close they can run Sydney depends on which Dockers side shows up.

They can, however, take heart from the fact that they beat the Swans by 17 points at the SCG in Round 9 of the 2023 campaign.

Sydney may be a different animal this this time around, but shocks do happen and the Dockers can be backed at 8.00 to snatch the game by 1-12 points.

Hayden Young is turning out to be a revelation for Fremantle this season as he is averaging just over 25 disposals a game.

The midfielder can be backed at 1.87 to collect 25+ disposals once against at the SCG.

Josh Treacy is another who continues to shine and the forward is 13.00 to kick the first goal of the game.
