Western Bulldogs vs Brisbane Lions Preview

Saturday’s slate kicks off with a bang when the Dogs host the Lions from Ballarat.

The Dogs barely broke a sweat last week in their incredible 128-point mauling of North Melbourne, while the Lions took a big step to turning their season around with a memorable one-point win over Collingwood on the siren.

Not surprisingly, the Dogs have been installed as the short-priced favourites this week after opening the season a perfect 3-0, but if there’s one team that can foil Luke Beveridge’s plans, it’s the Lions.

Brisbane has won back-to-back games over the Bulldogs by three goals or more, and there is also some positive news on the injury front with Jarrod Berry, Darcy Gardiner and Oscar McInerney all a chance to play this week.

The fact this game is being played in Ballarat makes this a difficult task for the Lions, but if they can find some accuracy in front of goal like they did in the second half week against Collingwood, they should be able to give this a red-hot crack.

Although the Dogs have played flawless footy so far, it’s also fair to say the Lions are a little more conditioned at this point in the season.

So far Brisbane has squared off against the undefeated Swans, Geelong and Collingwood – a much tougher run than the Dogs have faced through three rounds.

The underdog has covered the line in each of the Brisbane’s last six games, so there’s a bit to like about the Lions at least keeping this close.
