The Dees will be buoyed by their final quarter rally against the Dockers last time out as they look to string together back to back wins for the second time this season. After fading away in the second half of a number of games this season, Melbourne booted four goals to one in the final term against Freo to escape with their fourth win by 14 points. The Lions put to bed a bad away record this season with a 56 point thumping of the Saints, set up by a nine goal third term last Saturday.
Melbourne has had the ascendency in this match up recently, winning of four of the past five games against the Lions, but just one of those was played at the Gabba. In Brisbane, the Lions hold a 3-2 advantage in their past five against Melbourne, dating back to 2009. Jake Lever and Neville Jetta will be out for the Dees, while the Lions have a relatively clean bill of health compared to other sides in the competition.
The Wolf knows Brisbane has been a solid pick at home all season long. They are 5-1 at home this season and 4-2 against the spread. The over has also been their friend at the Gabba, going off 5 times. In a match where you can expect plenty of goals, it’s the more potent Lions who will come away with the four points and push their top four claims once more.
