AFL: Pies plotting to take down Bombers

Essendon and Collingwood have both hit some form heading into the traditional Anzac Day clash at the MCG and another exciting clash looks to be on the cards.

Reigning premiers Collingwood have recovered from a slow start to the season to win their last three games.

Meanwhile, the Pies look to be back on track and can be backed at 9.00 to win the 2024 grand final, but the victories need to keep flowing.

Essendon have also won the last two games on the bounce and their top-eight prospects are looking good as they sit seventh on the ladder.

The Bombers are priced at 3.00 to stay there and play finals footy this season.

There is always something very special about this clash and hopefully the two teams can serve up another treat.

Bombers back on track

Following a poor showing in Gather Round when they lost by 69 points to Port Adelaide, Essendon have bounced back well.

The Bombers edged out Adelaide by three points in a thriller at the weekend, after beating the Western Bulldogs by 29 points in the previous game.

Collingwood will be a tough test, with them having failed to beat the Pies in the last three meetings, however, those matches have all been close.

On Anzac Day 2023, the Bombers were leading in the final quarter before Collingwood came roaring back to win by 13 points, while in the previous game Collingwood won by just four points.

Essendon will be hoping they can come out on top in this one and can be backed at 5.50 to win by 1-12 points.

Kyle Langford continues to shine after booting another two goals in the win over the Crows at the weekend.

The forward is priced at 10.00 to kick the first goal of the game, or 1.09 to score at anytime.

Pies are on a roll

After losing their opening three games of the season, Collingwood have found their feet when winning the next three.

It has not been easy though and they had to come from behind to beat Port Adelaide at the weekend, while they only beat Hawthorn by five points in the previous game.

But wins are wins and Collingwood will be out to keep the good times rolling against the Bombers.

Patrick Lipinski stood out when kicking four goals in the win over Port Adelaide and is priced at 2.05 to kick another at anytime.

Nick Daicos also produced 30 disposals against the Power and 30+ again on Anzac Day is priced at 1.65.

Collingwood can also be backed at 5.00 to win the game by 13-24 points.
