Lions v Power
Saturday 4:35pm at Gabba

Pre-season wooden spoon favourites Brisbane continue to struggle while Port Adelaide have shown they can match it with the cream of the AFL.
FormAfter a surprise Round 1 win over the Gold Coast, Brisbane have dropped their last four all by margins of 27 or more. Their Gabba form has not been outstanding with two losses of 27 and 52 points respectively to Essendon and Richmond. Defence has been the primary issue for Chris Fagan’s team with the Lions ranking second last in points conceded.
Port Adelaide have been ticking over nicely with three wins from their five games with their two defeats coming at the hands of Adelaide (5-0) and GWS (4-1). Two of the Power wins this season have been by margins of 80-plus. Port rank Top 4 in both attack and defence so are arguably travelling better than their 3-2 record suggests.

  • Interstate double digit favourites off wins of 80-plus cover at 67%

2017 Over-Under: Brisbane 2-3, Port Adelaide 4-1
What To ExpectPort Adelaide have been better than their record shows with their two defeats coming against two very good teams. In their other three matches they have annihilated their opposition and they look set to do the same here in a match where the minus and over both look to be value. The Lions typically struggle to bounce back from a poor defensive display and against the attacking juggernaut that is Port, they look hard up against it.
