Nth Melbourne v Melbourne
Saturday 1:45pm at Blundstone Arena

North are looking for a little bit of pride over the last few rounds while Melbourne can sniff a Top 4 berth following their win over Port.

North Melbourne’s dismal season goes from bad to worse with their seventh straight defeat coming last Saturday at the hands of rivals Essendon. The Kangaroos are now 17th on the ladder with a 4-13 record. North actually rank eighth in scoring but a very poor 17th in defence. The Roos have conceded at least 118 points in three of their last four.

Melbourne have won six of their last eight with both defeats coming against teams above them on the ladder. The Demons are now seventh on the ladder with a 10-7 record. Melbourne rank sixth in scoring and ninth in defence. The Demons have not scored 100 points in their last five matches while they have conceded over 100 in just one of their last six.

Melbourne are awful bets when favoured so the confidence levels are high with North here.
