Western Bulldogs vs Geelong Cats Preview
Two wins on the trot has earned the Dogs a spot back in the eight momentarily, but they are about to face a much tougher test on Friday against a Geelong side that is playing white hot footy.
The Cats have reeled off four wins in a row over North, St Kilda, Port Adelaide and the Crows, and if results go their way this week, they might just find themselves tied for the top spot on the ladder.
The Bulldogs have been very impressive in recent weeks scoring a combined 191 points against the Crows and Dees, but this shapes up as an entirely different test against a Geelong side that has allowed the second-fewest goals to opponents on average.
Funnily enough, the Bulldogs hold the wood over the Cats with two wins from their last three meetings and they might also have an added edge playing at Metricon.
The Dogs are 4-2 in their six games on the Gold Coast this year and also happen to hold a 3-2 record as the line underdog over the last 12 months.
Geelong should win this game, but it mightn’t be by much.
