The top two teams in the competition will face off again after the Demons wom their Round 11 clash by 28 points, and we think they can repeat the dose again. Melbourne (13-3-1, 54 points) have now won four of the last six against the Western Bulldogs (13-4, 52 points), covering the line in five of those games.
Against the top-ten teams this season, Melbourne have an 8-0 record with a percentage of 139%, and have bounced back on the three previous occasions they entered a game after not taking home the four points the week prior – they’ve defeated the Western Bulldogs, Essendon and Port Adelaide in bounce back performances.
The MCG will be an advantage to the Dees in this, with the Dogs only playing there twice this season losing their last game there against Richmond – the only time the Tigers have cleared the line at the MCG this season.
