AFL: Power going for three in a row

Third takes on fourth in the AFL on Saturday night when Port Adelaide entertain Melbourne, while Essendon go head-to-head with St Kilda.

Port Adelaide have started with two wins but will face their biggest test yet against a Demons side that have won the last two after losing their opening game.

Melbourne are 8.50 to win the grand final in 2024, while Port can be backed at 10.00 to go all the way.

In Saturday’s only other game in the AFL, Essendon take on St Kilda, with both sides looking for their second wins of the season.

Both have set their sights on finals in 2024 so it is a massive game, even if it is still very early days in the season.

Bombers out to bounce back

What: Essendon v St Kilda
Where: Marvel Stadium, Melbourne
When: 16:20, Saturday 30th March 2024
How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
Odds: Essendon 2.30, St Kilda 1.62

Essendon will be disappointed with a 30-point defeat against Sydney last week and will have to cut out the errors in defence if they are to bounce back.

There were positives to take from the 131-101 loss, with Peter Wright and Sam Draper both impressing, while Zach Merrett also capped a fine all-round display with two goals.

Kyle Langford will also be a threat and is 9.50 to kick the first goal of the game.

St Kilda will still be on a high after beating Collingwood last week, but now need to back it up with a win over the Bombers.

They won by 18 points when the two sides met in round three in 2023 and can be backed at 5.50 to win by 13-24 on Saturday.

Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera chipped in with an impressive 32 disposals against Collingwood and is 3.00 to do the same with 30+ against Essendon.

Port target three in a row

What: Port Adelaide v Melbourne
Where: Adelaide Oval, Adelaide
When: 19:30, Saturday 30th March 2024
How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel, Channel 7
Odds: Port Adelaide 1.47, Melbourne 2.70

Port Adelaide have beaten West Coast and Richmond, but the clash will be the biggest test of their premiership credentials so far.

They won a close one by four points when the two sides last met at the Adelaide Oval in round 23 last season.

The Power would no doubt take the same again and are priced at 6.00 to win by 1-12 points.

Charlie Dixon has five goals in the opening two games and can be backed at 10.00 to boot the first against the Demons.

Melbourne have bounced back well to win their last two games, but are missing key players this week.

Steven May and Jack Lever have both been ruled out and will be missed, but Simon Goodwin’s men still have enough quality to get the job done.
