Sydney v Essendon
Friday 7:50pm at SCG

Sydney are hoping their surge back into contention continues on Friday night when they meet a desperate Bombers team at the SCG.

Sydney have moved up to 12th on the ladder with a 5-7 record after their dramatic come-from-behind victory against Richmond. Sydney have now won five of their last six after astonishingly dropping six straight to open the year. The Swans have kept opponents to 81 or under in each of those six wins.

Essendon are clinging to a Top 8 position, sitting in eighth with a 6-6 record. The Bombers have won just four of their last 10 but before the bye they had belted Port Adelaide by 70 points in one of their best wins of the season. The Bombers have posted 100-plus in four of their last five. Essendon have conceded 116-plus in their last three interstate gamws.

2017 Over-Under: Sydney 6-6, Essendon 7-5

What To Expect
Sydney are the hot team in the AFL at present and on home turf should be winning but against the two-faced Essendon team, nothing is for sure. On their day the Bombers could beat any team in the premiership. When they are off they can get embarrassed by any side. The best play is the under. Night games are typically under games this time of year and the Swans are a big under team at the SCG.
