|Collingwood||20||v||-20||West Coast||MCG||West Coast||by||18||pts|
|Brisbane Lions||-7||v||1||Port Adelaide||Gabb||Port Adelaide||by||38||pts|
|North Melbourne||-9||v||21||St Kilda||Dock||North Melbourne||by||28||pts|
No games tipped to be under 3 goals. Fingers crossed for nine.
And that Adelaide tip... that's the biggest margin predicted all season.
Most likely upsets...?
Collingwood over the Eagles, and St Kilda over North Melbourne. And for the really adventurous - Gold Coast over Melbourne.
