Port Adelaide bounced back to the winners’ circle emphatically in round 9, trashing the Demons by 51 points, boosting their percentage along the way to retain top position, equal with the Lions on 7-2.  The Bulldogs, meanwhile, are looking to mirror what Port did this weekend in this game, as they were strongly smashed by the Tigers, losing by 41, after some promising wins earlier in the year, had many wondering if they were legitimate.  Breezy, cool but dry conditions await at the historic venue, in Adelaide, hosting yet another crucial battle as every competition point matters in this shortened AFL season.

Experienced small forward Brad Ebert is out with his knee injury recurring again, and replaced by debutant Boyd Woodcock, a North Adelaide product, drafted by the club in 2018.  The other change is the exclusion of Lienert from the team, with coach Hinkley preferring former Gold Coast regular, Trent McKenzie, who has 110 games at the highest level under his belt.  The Bulldogs too have an injury, with Matt Suckling ruled out due to a hamstring issue and replaced by Weightman who debuted a fortnight ago.  In other changes, the Bulldogs have left out Gowers and Trengove, preferring Dunkley and Smith, the latter having just 17 games experience since debuting in 2015, while Dunkley has 66 and recovered from his ankle complaint.

This is clearly a danger game for Port Adelaide as the Dogs showed them how to play last year, winning by 25, in a Winter match, at this venue.  Overall, this pair of teams have a very close matchup, with Port leading 16-14, including some memorable matches in recent years.  Port Adelaide are $1.47 favourites for this clash with the Bulldogs certainly within shouting distance at $2.70, and a predicted margin of around 2 goals.  Look for Port Adelaide to continue their fine form, especially at their home venue, with a few thousand raucous fans on hand, while the Doggies will be desperate to win to hold their position in the top 8, which will be hanging by a thread if they lose.

PREDICTION: Port too strong, winners by 15-20.

BETTING TIP: $1.91 is a safe bet for the 1-39 margin.
