St.Kilda +2.5 v Adelaide @1.90
AFL NAB cup game between the teams of St.Kilda and Adelaide.
My bet here is for an upset with St.Kilda to win. It is somewhat of an upset if you just look on the surface with Adelaide finishing 2nd last season and St.Kilda finishing 9th.
My reasons are as follows:
- The Adelaide side has zero of it's star players .. they have picked a team of kids
- The St.Kilda side is actually pretty strong with Del Santo and Montagna to run rampant over the Adelaide young midfield
- Adelaide have not even picked a forward line leaving "Tex" walker out for this match
The only slight concern for the saints is that they are resting N.Roo but given Milne dominated their last practice match i don't think that will be a problem.
More experienced Saints to beat the youthful side of Adelaide in Melbourne (home ground advantage) is my bet.
