Port Adelaide Power vs Western Bulldogs Preview

We have a real headscratcher this one and I have a feeling we could be in for another classic prelim when Port hosts the Doggies at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night.

The Western Bulldogs are coming off an epic 1-point win over the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba last week and Port would not want to make back-to-back heartbreakers after last year.

What Port Adelaide will have in their favor is a week off and the fact they’ve all been able to sleep in their own beds, while the Western Bulldogs have racked up the frequent flyer points in recent weeks.

Bevo’s Bulldogs will have plenty of momentum going into this game but question marks remain over whether the Bont or young gun Cody Weightman will play.

These two sides also met back in Round 23 on the Friday night when the Power managed to scrape a 2-point win in front of nobody at Marvel Stadium,

The cauldron-like atmosphere with 25,000 mostly Port supporters at Adelaide Oval will be something to behold, but the Dogs had a pretty good taste of being the villains at the Gabba last Saturday night.

While Port is the short-priced $1.42 favorite at the time of publishing, the Western Bulldogs are also a good value bet at the $2.85 on offer.

I can’t commit to anyone here punters, even if Port has won their past seven matches.

For that, I’m pulling the trigger on my trusty favorite tri-bet option of Either to win by 15.5 or less at the $2.55 price.

May it live up to my expectations.
