Melbourne +34.5 v St.Kilda @1.50
AFL NAB Cup match between the teams of Melbourne and St.Kilda.
My bet here is for Melbourne to get within 34.5 points paying 1.50 with BET365.
Both of these teams finished outside the top 8 last year and to be honest i can't see either of them going close to playing finals this year.
Melbourne have a young list but really surprised last week beating Port by 2 points in a close match. They should have won the game easily but faded towards the end. The fact their young players managed to hold on was tribute to their determination to do well in the preseason cup and push for senior selection come round 1.
St.Kilda has a lucky start to the NAB cup playing an extremely undermanned Adelaide in a game they won as expected.
Their record of 2 wins and 1 loss in the preseason is a little overstated i believe with them putting out a strong team each week despite N.Roo not playing as yet.
I think St.Kilda will win this game but Melbourne should come out of the blocks firing early and i expect then to probably lead or at least by close for 3 quarters.
I think the buffer is more then enough to secure a winning bet here.
