AFL Finals 2nd Week 2012 – Elimination Round

AFL 2017

Welcome to The Profits 2nd week of the Finals analysis with Drew and Euan. This is Elimination week with no more second chances on the line! Over the last 10 years, 39 out of the 40 teams that have finished top 4 have made the Preliminary final. It is safe to say we haven’t had a closer finals series in a long time and when you consider how easy the draw was for a few teams, anyone could win this weekend. We say, throw the statistic out the window! We love to hear your feedback and thoughts so tweet @TheProfitsComAu and we will comment/retweet! Good luck and happy punting!

Adelaide Crows ($1.58) vs Fremantle Dockers ($2.40)  – AAMI Stadium, Friday September 14, 8.15pm
Recent clashes
: Adelaide 17.17 (119) defeated Fremantle 14.7 (91), round 20 2012 at AAMI Stadium
Game preview: Adelaide were woeful in front of goal kicking 5 goals 12. They actually had more shots on goal than Sydney. It was a fairly even game but they couldn’t get any momentum. Fremantle got the jump on a Cats team that who played at about 50% of what they had the previous weeks. Fremantle did a very good job to shut down the key forwards of Geelong but Adelaide brings fresher and stronger legs into the contest. Expect Adelaide to step up and win.
Crows by 20
Line: Crows -9.5

Collingwood Magpies ($1.80) vs West Coast Eagles ($2.03) – The MCG, Saturday 15 September, 7.45pm
Recent clashes: West Coast 15.17 (107) d Collingwood 8.10 (58), round 22, 2012, at Patersons Stadium
Game preview: Collingwood were below average last week against the flag favourite hawks while the Eagles were dominant from start to finish against the Kangaroos. The Eagles smashed the pies in Round 22 107 to 58 and we expect the Eagles to be too strong over the four QTRs with a Captainless Collingwood.

Covering all things Australian Rules Football for The Profits. I’ve been a passionate supporter and follower of AFL for as long as I can remember. Having been born into a family with deep football history and tradition on both sides, you can say it runs through my blood. I’ve got a keen interest in the stats and analysis of the game, which helped me finish in the top 100 of fantasy competitions DreamTeam and Supercoach last year. While my own local football career was cut short due to injury at 22, it has created an opportunity for me to frequently watch and build a deep knowledge of the sport at its highest level. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and views throughout the season.
