⏰ 27 August 2023 - 12:30 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Adelaide Oval
The Port Adelaide Power will host the Richmond Tigers in an entertaining AFL clash on Saturday 27 August 2023 at 12:30 pm AEST.
AusBetSites has gathered odds for the match from 3 different Australian betting sites across 37 betting markets. The bookies have installed the home side Power as strong favourites at $1.08 to defeat the visiting Tigers.
Port Adelaide will host Richmond on Saturday night for a crucial Round 23 clash at Adelaide Oval. The Power sits 3rd on the ladder and can lock up a top 4 spots with a win. Meanwhile, the 12th-placed Tigers are clinging to their finals hopes coming off three straight defeats.
Richmond gave club legends Jack Riewoldt and Trent Cotchin a fitting farewell last week, beating North Melbourne by 29 points in their final game for the Tigers. With Richmond out of finals contention, the retiring duo won't make the trip to Adelaide this weekend as the club looks to the future. The Tigers sit 12th on the ladder heading into the final round.
For Port Adelaide, their season is very much alive. The Power have locked up a double chance by securing 3rd spot. A win over the Tigers could lift them to 2nd or keep them 3rd depending on Brisbane's result.
Last week Port ground out a hard-fought 16-point victory over Fremantle, with Zak Butters a good chance to poll votes after racking up 31 disposals. With Butters, Ollie Wines and Connor Rozee through the middle, Port should have too much firepower at home. Expect them to finish off the home and away season strongly.
Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers Head-to-Head
The head-to-head record between Port Adelaide and Richmond over the past 3 years suggests this matchup could go either way. In their last 4 meetings, the Power and Tigers have each managed 2 wins apiece, with no draws. With the wins evenly split between the clubs in recent seasons, this rivalry has proven to be a highly competitive one. Based on the back-and-forth nature of this head-to-head, fans could be treated to another close contest when the Power and Tigers face off. With both teams taking turns picking up wins against one another in the last few years, there is no clear favourite coming into this game. However, Port Adelaide will have home home-field advantage which could provide a slight edge. But overall, the evenly matched recent history points to an intense, tightly fought clash between two great rivals.
Port Adelaide Power Performance
🟩🟥🟥🟥🟩 The Port Adelaide Power have hit top form in their last 5 games, winning all 5 contests during this stretch. Out of their most recent matches, they have managed to secure victory 100% of the time, displaying great consistency and dominance. This excellent run of results shows the Power have really hit their stride, finding ways to win week after week. Their string of 5 consecutive victories proves Port Adelaide are currently one of the hottest teams in the competition. The team will look to maintain this elite level of play and translate it into more regular season wins as they push for finals footy. While their form has been impeccable lately, the Power cannot afford to become complacent. By staying focused and hungry, Port Adelaide will aim to keep their outstanding winning streak alive in upcoming games.
Richmond Tigers Performance
🟥🟥🟥🟩🟩 The Richmond Tigers have posted a mixed record of 3 wins and 2 losses in their last 5 games. Out of their most recent matches, they were victorious 60% of the time, while being defeated on the other 40% of occasions. This indicates the Tigers have been moderately inconsistent, alternating between wins and losses lately. However, their current back-to-back victories show the team has started to find some good form. Securing 2 consecutive wins proves Richmond have developed positive momentum despite their up and down performances. To maintain consistency, the Tigers will need to keep this winning habit going in upcoming games. While their overall form has fluctuated, the recent consecutive wins demonstrate Richmond's potential when they are playing at their best. The team will aim to translate this into greater consistency as they pursue more regular triumphs.
📋 Players to watch:
- Dion Prestia has had 20+ disposals in his last 11 games.
- Ollie Wines has averaged 27 disposals in his past 2 matches.
- Zak Butters has had 30+ disposals in his past 5 games.
- Shai Bolton has kicked 6 goals in his past 4 games vs Port.
- Dustin Martin has kicked 10 goals in his past 5 matches against the Power.
- Port's Jeremy Finlayson is averaging 2 goals per game this season.
⚡ Match Facts:
- Based on the even head-to-head record and recent form, I expect a very close game between Port Adelaide and Richmond. However, with home-ground advantage, I'll predict a narrow Port Adelaide victory.
- The Power and Tigers have split their last 4 meetings with 2 wins apiece. Neither team has a clear historical edge.
- Both sides have been inconsistent lately, with the Power winning 3 of their last 5 and the Tigers also going 3-2 over that span. Momentum is evenly matched.
- Considering it's at Adelaide Oval, Port Adelaide's 5-game winning streak earlier this season, and their slightly higher ladder position, I'll tip the Power to edge out the Tigers by under 10 points.
- Prediction: Port Adelaide Power defeated Richmond Tigers by 6 points.
- The Power's home-ground advantage should get them over the line in what shapes as a tense, low-scoring arm wrestle between these arch-rivals.
💡 Match Prediction:
The Port Adelaide Power host the Richmond Tigers in a massive clash, with the home side coming in as strong favourites. Based on recent statistics and trends, the Power have an 81.3% probability of winning, compared to just 18.7% for the Tigers. This equates to fair odds of $1.23 for Port Adelaide and long odds of $5.36 for an upset Richmond victory.
The forecast model predicts the Power will prevail by an ample 35 points. While Richmond has proven they can challenge Port Adelaide, the metrics point to likely dominance by the Power at their Adelaide Oval fortress. Port will be looking to make a statement after falling to the Tigers earlier this season. They inform Power should be too much class across the ground for the inconsistent Tigers. But Richmond has the talent to close the gap if they bring their best form.
Port Adelaide vs Richmond: 85-79 or Port Adelaide to win by 35 points
