The Tigers can’t afford another loss if they hold any hope of playing finals footy for the fifth year in a row.

Richmond has now suffered back-to-back defeats following a narrow four-point loss to Fremantle last week.

One win could put the Tigers right back on track, but it’s fair to say Saturday’s game is far from a given against a feisty North Melbourne side playing with a point to prove.

The Roos hung tight last week with the Cats before fading away in the final term.

Playing a full four quarters has been North’s downfall for most of the year, but they should fancy themselves against a Richmond outfit that has battled similar problems since the beginning of the season.

From a betting standpoint, this game is tough to get a feel for. Given the circumstances, the Tigers should bounce-back and keep their season alive, but their lack of efficiency in front of goal last week makes them nerve-racking bet moving forward.

On the opposite side, the Roos have been the best team to bet on at the line this year, covering in 13 of their 19 games so far.


This is a very narrow spread, but if they can start fast and also force the Tigers into some mistakes, this game isn’t beyond them.
