Adelaide Crows vs North Melbourne Predictions and Betting Tips
🏈 AFL Round 16 Match Preview
⏰ 1 July 2023 - 13:45 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Adelaide Oval
A victory against North Melbourne prior to their bye has allowed the Bulldogs to secure a position within the top eight. They have an opportunity to strengthen their claim further by defeating an inconsistent Fremantle side on Saturday. Despite showing some competitiveness, the Kangaroos have only managed two wins this season and have suffered 12 consecutive defeats, tying with West Coast for the longest ongoing losing streak. While they are expected to put up more of a fight compared to West Coast's recent performance at the Adelaide Oval, it is highly unlikely that they will cause an upset in this matchup.
The Bulldogs have been prone to self-inflicted challenges throughout the season. However, given the current trajectory of the season, they might end up securing a place in the finals when all is said and done. Similar to the Bulldogs, Fremantle has been a team that has been difficult to predict throughout the year. Jye Amiss has displayed an excellent form for the Dockers, and it's worth noting that the Bulldogs have allowed their last four opponents to register over 13 scoring shots.

Fremantle, known for their defensive prowess last year, conceded 106 points to the Giants two weeks ago, but they bounced back with a convincing victory over the Bombers in the previous week. Winning on the road posed a challenge for the Dockers earlier in the season. However, their recent wins at the SCG and the MCG over the past six weeks against two finalists from last year provide some confidence to their fans. Ultimately, the outcome of this match will likely depend on which forward line can operate with greater efficiency. Although the Bulldogs tend to make mistakes and turnovers at unfavourable moments, if Cody Weightman continues his strong performance in the forward half, they have a good chance of winning comfortably.
Adelaide Crows Performance
The Adelaide Crows once again suffered a defeat against that particular team in their most recent match at the MCG, falling short by a mere two points. Jordan Dawson showcased an exceptional performance, providing 35 assists, while Taylor Walker displayed his goal-scoring prowess by kicking five goals. In the previous week's match against West Coast at the Adelaide Oval, Walker had an outstanding performance, booting a total of 10 goals in a convincing 122-point victory.
North Melbourne Performance
Coming off a bye, the North Melbourne team had previously faced a 21-point defeat against the Western Bulldogs in Round 14. In that match, Jaidyn Stephenson and Nick Larkey both scored three goals, while the emerging talent Harry Sheezel recorded an impressive 32 disposals. Despite displaying some competitiveness, the Kangaroos have only managed to secure two victories this season and have suffered 12 consecutive defeats, matching the West Coast Eagles for the longest ongoing losing streak. While they are expected to offer a greater challenge compared to the performance of the Eagles a fortnight ago at the Adelaide Oval, it is highly unlikely that they will cause an upset in this particular match.
