Western Bulldogs vs Fremantle Dockers Predictions and Betting Tips
🏈 AFL Round 16 Match Preview
⏰ 1 July 2023 - 13:45 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Marvel Stadium
Despite being in the fight for a spot in the top eight, the Crows once again demonstrated their worthiness of a place in the finals, even though they suffered another close defeat to Collingwood last week. It was a game that Adelaide arguably should have won, and despite the controversy surrounding it, Matthew Nicks must be satisfied with his team's overall effort from beginning to end, particularly with the exceptional performance delivered by Jordan Dawson. On the other hand, North Melbourne returned from their bye seeking to end a daunting 12-game losing streak that extends all the way back to March.

To their credit, the Roos displayed inspired football leading up to the bye, narrowly losing to the Bombers and challenging the Giants and Bulldogs until the end. Unfortunately, this upcoming match appears to be another challenging loss for the visitors, one that could potentially get out of hand given Adelaide's impressive home record this year. The Crows have been nearly unbeatable on their home turf, averaging 16 goals per game while limiting their opponents to just 10.
Taylor Walker showcased his skills in the previous matchup against West Coast two weeks ago, and he continued to excel in front of the goal against Collingwood, positioning himself as the frontrunner for the Coleman Medal. However, Nick Larkey also has his own claims in the Coleman Medal race. Nevertheless, considering Adelaide's intensified midfield pressure, it becomes challenging to bet against them.
Western Bulldogs Performance
The Western Bulldogs are coming off their bye week and must be cautious to ensure they are prepared for their Round 16 match. It's worth noting that only two out of the 12 teams that have had a bye this season have managed to secure a victory in the following week.
In their last outing before the break, Luke Beveridge's team convincingly defeated North Melbourne, handing them a 21-point loss. The standout performance came from Cody Weightman, who impressed with six goals. Marcus Bontempelli also made a significant impact with 32 disposals and three goals, making him a strong contender for the three votes from the umpires in that match.
Fremantle Dockers Performance
On the other hand, the Fremantle Dockers will be aiming for a win to level up with the Bulldogs. They will need to carry the same form they displayed in their 32-point victory over Essendon at Optus Stadium in Round 15. Caleb Serong continued his excellent season with 32 disposals and a goal, while Liam Henry and Luke Ryan both recorded over 30 disposals.
📋 Players to watch:
- Marcus Bontempelli has been highly influential in recent matches, recording 25 or more disposals in six out of his past seven games. His teammate Adam Treloar has also been in excellent form, achieving 30 or more disposals in his last three outings.
- Caleb Serong has been a key contributor for the Dockers, averaging 27.5 disposals in his previous four encounters against the Bulldogs.
- When facing the Dockers, Marcus Bontempelli has displayed his scoring prowess, booting six goals in his last four matchups. He has also managed to kick four goals in his two most recent games this year.
- Jye Amiss has been in impressive goal-scoring form, accumulating a total of 17 goals in his past six games.
⚡ Match Facts:
- The Western Bulldogs have secured eight victories out of 14 matches this season, while Fremantle has won seven out of 14. Currently, the Bulldogs hold the 7th position on the ladder, whereas the Dockers sit at 11th.
- In their recent encounters, Fremantle has emerged victorious in two out of the last three matchups against the Bulldogs, including their most recent meeting at Marvel Stadium. However, earlier this season, the Bulldogs were able to defeat the Dockers.
- When it comes to total disposals, the Bulldogs rank 6th in the competition, while Fremantle holds 9th position.
💡 Match Prediction:
Considering the Western Bulldogs' overall performance this season and their recent history against Fremantle, it could be a reasonable choice to tip the Bulldogs for a victory in their upcoming match. Additionally, if you are considering laying the winning handicap, it implies that you expect the Bulldogs to win by a significant margin.
However, it's important to note that handicaps can be unpredictable, and the outcome of a match can vary. It's always a good idea to analyze the current form, team dynamics, and any other relevant factors before making a final decision.
