The good thing about letting systems do the thinking for you is that you remove the emotion and subjectivity from process. It's a colder approach... pure numbers.
And then the calculations pop up something that makes you think... Well...
|Brisbane Lions||19||v||6||North Melbourne||Gabb||North Melbourne||by||34||pts|
|St Kilda||-10||v||10||W Bulldogs/FFC||Dock||W Bulldogs/FFC||by||33||pts|
It may be that the FMI blog stands alone in tipping Essendon, and doubling up that jeopardy with a 1 point tip to Adelaide. No one from The Age went for Essendon, either.
And the form indicator also suggests Essendon are under Melbourne on present form.
Further, the Power are on a better form line that Adelaide.
So in full "let's retreat from the calculated numbers" mode then it's very easy to declare those two tips rubbery.
Use them at your peril.
