AFL: Leading trio facing tough road trips

The top three sides on the AFL ladder, Greater Western Sydney, Geelong and Port Adelaide, are all in action on Saturday.

Both GWS and Geelong remain undefeated after five rounds and can be backed at 5.00 and 10.00 respectively to go on and win the 2024 grand final.

GWS travel to take on a Carlton side who will be desperate to bounce back following a shock defeat against Adelaide last week.

Geelong are also in for a tough test when they make the trip to the Gabba to take on the Brisbane Lions.

Reigning premiers Collingwood will look to continue their recent revival when they entertain third-placed Port Adelaide and to wrap up the day there is a big derby in the west when West Coast and Fremantle go head-to-head.

Pies need to stay on track

. What: Collingwood v Port Adelaide
. Where: MCG, Melbourne
. When: 14:45, Saturday 20th April 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Collingwood 1.72, Port Adelaide 2.15

Collingwood have recovered from three defeats on the spin to win the last two, but they need to keep on winning if they are to defend their premiership.

Jamie Elliott is impressing when booting 10 goals so far and the Pies ace can be backed at 12.00 to kick the first of the game against Port Adelaide.

Collingwood beat Port by two points in Adelaide last season and are priced at 6.00 to win by 1-12 points.

Port Adelaide, who just edged out Fremantle last week, are the same price to win within the same margin.

Carlton eye response to Crows loss

. What: Carlton v Greater Western Sydney
. Where: Marvel Stadium, Melbourne
. When: 17:35, Saturday 20th April 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Carlton 1.82, Greater Western Sydney 2.00

Carlton came back down to earth when losing to the Crows and will be determined to bounce back against a premiership contender.

The Giants also had a mighty scare against St Kilda but managed to hang on and win by a point.

Both sides have been hit by injuries and GWS will be missing the influential Stephen Coniglio.

Another tight game could be on the cards and both sides are 6.00 to win by 1-12 points.

Carlton’s Sam Walsh impressed with 34 disposals against Adelaide and is 1.87 to produce 30+ against the Giants.

Major test looms for Geelong

. What: Brisbane v Geelong
. Where: The Gabba, Brisbane
. When: 20:30, Saturday 20th April 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Brisbane 1.54, Geelong 2.50

Geelong remain undefeated, but face their biggest test of the season so far when they face a Brisbane side that is back in form.

Brisbane have won their last two, including a win over Melbourne at the MCG last week.

They won last season’s corresponding fixture by 11 points and are 6.00 to win by 1-12 this time as well.

Geelong are 5.50 to win by 1-12 points, while Jeremy Cameron can be backed at 9.50 to boot the first goal of the game.

Big derby clash in the west

. What: West Coast v Fremantle
. Where: Optus Stadium, Perth
. When: 21:10, Saturday 20th April 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel, Channel 7
. Odds: West Coast 5.00, Fremantle 1.18

West Coast have had a rough few seasons at the foot of the ladder and the start of 2024 has also been tough.

However, they will be on a high heading into the derby after picking up a rare win against Richmond last week.

Fremantle are a team on the up, but following a couple of narrow losses to Carlton and Port Adelaide need to respond on Saturday.

The Dockers have won the last five derby games and can be backed at 5.50 to triumph by 25-36 points.
