Will Sunday’s Elimination Final between the Western Bulldogs and Essendon be the drought breaker?

Is it set to be a Donut day for Essendon?

Everyone knows that it’s been over 6100 days since the Bombers last won a final.

In fact, Essendon has made the finals six times in the last 16 years only to bundle out in week one every single time.

Are these young exciting Baby Bombers set to be the team that ends this dreaded (for Essendon) streak?

There’s been a lot to like about them this season and they are worthy of playing finals football and having played in Launceston a few weeks back in front many local fans.

It might be a Dogs “home” final but many suspect the majority in the stands at UTAS Stadium will be in red and black.

The Western Bulldogs almost had a top-four spot sewn up last Friday night, but allowed Port to kick three goals to snatch a two-point win, only to have that gut punch followed 24 hours later with Brisbane taking the fourth spot and the double chance.

It resulted in the Dogs third-straight defeat and a poor run into finals football along with some significant injuries.

Factoring in the underdogs have covered the line in nine of the Western Bulldogs’ last 10 matches, I think this COULD be the game that breaks the drought for Essendon.

Or, at least, gets them close.


The Dogs open as favourites in the head to head betting, but you simply can’t go past Essendon at the +9.5 at offer on the line.
