Carlton Blues vs Collingwood Magpies Preview
Carlton will be hoping to put their added rest to good use on Sunday when they tackle a Collingwood side still fighting for life inside the eight.
The Blues were enormous last week in the Northern Territory defeating the Suns in a comfortable 33-point rout, while Collingwood also enjoyed a fairly cruisy game against North Melbourne winning by 30 on Monday.
The injury riddled Pies could be a little vulnerable in this spot on short rest, but they do have a strong track record to suggest otherwise.
Collingwood has won four of its past five games against Carlton, all of which have come by double digits.
There is also a piece of history on the line for the Pies as a win would place them tied on 41 wins apiece with Carlton in 82 meetings since 1980.
This is definitely one of the toughest games to pick this week, largely due to how unpredictable both clubs have been this year.
To make matters even more complicated, Carlton faces GWS the following Thursday, while the Pies take on the Lions on Friday, so it’s difficult to know where both clubs’ minds might be at.
