Niall Seewang: After a dominant showing last week against the Giants, I'm taking Richmond, on their favoured home turf to comfortably handle Port Adelaide. The Tigers are absolutely storming home and have important players back in the line up.

Jake Michaels: I'm all in on the Blues for this game. The Suns are in real trouble and Carlton has found some form under David Teague. They should take down the Suns on Saturday.

Matt Walsh: Much the same as Niall, I can't go past Richmond at the MCG. With a head full of steam, this will be another win for the Tigers on their run in to finals.

Christian Joly: It's easy to say Geelong. The Cats are the best team in the league and even though Geelong and Hawthorn have traditionally had very close games in that intense rivalry, I'm sure they'll get past the Hawks.


Niall Seewang: Teams seem to love a bounce back the week they lose their coach and I think St. Kilda can continue that trend and find a way to win under Brett Ratten this week against the Bulldogs at Marvel stadium.

Jake Michaels: At the moment, Collingwood are outsiders to beat the Giants, who have been struck down with injuries, particularly in the midfield where they are missing some stars in Coniglio and Kelly. The Pies are coming off an important win against West Coast and will be looking to carry that momentum into this match.

Matt Walsh: My upset is Gold Coast to get up over the Blues. The Suns have a history of playing well at Marvel stadium against the Blues -- have won the last two at the venue -- and I think they're a chance to reproduce that this weekend.

Christian Joly: Over the last nine weeks, Port Adelaide have been alternating wins and losses, and the Tigers and the Power have been alternating wins in their last 5 matches against each other, so it's Port's turn to be back in the winners column.
