Essendon Bombers vs Adelaide Crows Preview

While these two sides (probably) won’t play finals, they’ve most certainly become two of the more entertaining teams to watch and have earned a run on Friday night football.

Both Essendon and Adelaide fans should be pretty excited about their future prospects and we should be in for a cracking contest.

The Bombers were competitive in the early stages against the Cats last week, only to be blown away in the second half.

Adelaide got thumped by the Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) last week but has been in the contest for the majority of matches played this season.

While Essendon opens the betting as the clear $1.30 favorite, we could have a real thriller on our hands.

I’d still expect the Dons to win this, but there’s serious value in my old trusty either side to win by 15.5 or less and I’m going to take it for this one.
