Western Bulldogs vs Richmond Tigers Preview
The feast of footy kicks off with a game that’s a bloody hard one to get a read of if to be perfectly honest.
The Western Bulldogs are currently sitting sixth on the ladder with a 5-3 record and go into this game coming off a thrilling five-point win over the Suns in the wet.
Bailey Smith, Caleb Daniel and Jack Macrae found plenty of the footy and the Dogs have been able to keep their opponents to 51 points or less in five out of their last six games.
Richmond had plenty of opportunities to get the job done over the Giants last week but was incredibly wasteful going down by 12 points.
A positive for the Tigers is that Dustin Martin is starting to step up in terms of form and they will very much be grateful to have skipper Trent Cotchin and David Astbury back in the team this week.
While Richmond has been the dominant team in the last three years, the Western Bulldogs have actually won five out of their past six against them.
They are a good value bet at $2.10 head to head but while the Tigers aren’t in premiership winning form just yet, you can’t write them off.
