Nth Melbourne v St Kilda
Friday 7:50pm at Etihad Stadium

Both North and Saints have fallen off the pace of a finals run and need desperately to win this compelling Friday night affair.
North Melbourne found some form before their bye with four wins in their last six matches. Their last match prior to the bye was a disappointing 35-point loss to Richmond. The Kangaroos have kicked 100 points in four of their last six. North rank sixth in points scored but have the fourth-worst defence in the AFL.
St Kilda have been in freefall and are down to 12th on the ladder following three straight defeats. The Saints have not managed to post more than 68 points in any of those three losses to Sydney, the Bulldogs or Adelaide. St Kilda rank 11th in both attack and defence. The Saints have not finished within 40 in their last three.

Betting Data
2017 Line: North Melbourne 5-6, St Kilda 4-7
2017 Over-Under: North Melbourne 7-4, St Kilda 5-6
What To Expect
Brutal game here for punters. North are the tip based purely on their recent history of dominance against the Saints and the extra week they have had to prepare for this. Not many compelling angles either way in this though.
