Brisbane Lions vs Port Adelaide Tips

The Brisbane Lions did just enough to beat the St Kilda Saints 72-60 in their last regular season outing to make it four wins in a row and to head into the finals with momentum.

The Port Adelaide Power notched their third win in a row at the end of August as they defeated the Richmond Tigers 94-63, but have a job on their hand at the Gabba.

Head to Head

The Power were able to notch a 126-72 win over the Lions in their last meeting back in March. In their last 10, the Power have won five times, while the Lions have also won five times. 

Brisbane Lions Form

The Brisbane Lions have been brilliant all season, and they look like a real force this term as they attempt to add to the 17 wins they notched in the home and away season. 

The Lions arrive for their battle with the Power on a four-game winning run, after defeating the Fremantle Dockers, Adelaide Crows, Collingwood Magpies and St Kilda Saints.

I am backing this one to be very tight. Both sides are very well matched, but I am predicting that the Lions will find a way to notch another win and move into the Preliminary Finals.
