Port Adelaide travel to the Etihad Stadium off the back of a good beating by the Swans at the Adelaide Oval. They got within seven points of Fremantle in round one at the newly named Domain stadium and many thought they were unlucky not to win that match. I was not one of them and to me Freo looked like they played within themselves for much of the match.
North got smashed by 77 points by a rampant Adelaide in round one but followed that with an 82 point beating of the Lions at their favoured Etihad Stadium. They are a far superior team when playing at home and that home advantage should be the difference against Port.
We have a sleeping European bookie to get stuck into again and there’s a 10 point middle for anyone also wanting to back Port at +3.5 with Palmerbet.
