Essendon Bombers vs Brisbane Lions Preview

The Bombers couldn’t have been much more disappointing in round 1 against the Cats turning the football over 61 times in total and going at 41.7% efficiency inside their own forward 50..

If there was one shining light for the Dons it came in the shape of debutant Nic Martin who racked up 27 touches and kicked five goals in a stellar performance.

The Brisbane Lions and Port Adelaide game was far from the best game of the weekend but Brisbane came from behind to win a crucial clash to start the year.

They trailed the Power by 24 points late in the third quarter but kicked five goals to one to run out 11 point winners at the Gabba.

The Lions turned it on when needed but it was far from a convincing performance and this line has opened fairly large in my opinion.

I may regret it, but the betting play sits with the Bombers to bounce back.
