Carlton vs Port Adelaide Tips

After a long run of six defeats in a row, the Carlton Blues have suddenly found their feet, and they arrive for this one looking to secure their fourth win in a row.

The Port Adelaide Power are on a 13-game winning run, with the side fighting with Collingwood as they look to move clear at the top of the ladder. Can the Power be stopped?

Head to Head

The Blues secured a tight 94-91 win over the Power when they met in 2022, with this ending a run of six wins in a row for the Power. 

Carlton Form 

Carlton's form has gone from abysmal to superb in the space of a few weeks, with the Blues suddenly looking like they have a genuine chance of clinching a top-eight spot. 

Their six-game losing run was tough to watch, but they quickly bounced back with wins over the Gold Coast Suns, Hawthorn Hawks and Fremantle Dockers enough to see them arrive for this one with three wins in their last three game.  

Carlton Team News

The Blues should recall Tom de Koning, but Matt Kennedy is out with a knee injury.

Port Adelaide Form 

The Port Adelaide Power have been incredibly good of late, with their winning run spanning all the way back to April 8 when they edged past the Sydney Swans. 

Since that win, the Power have been building with each performance and are now on a 13-game winning run

With six wins in their last six away games, the Power have also done it on the road too. 

Port Adelaide Team News

The Power will likely be without Trent McKenzie, Charlie Dixon and Jason Horne-Francis through injury and Junior Rioli for personal reasons.

They form part of seven changes that including Tom Jonas, Xavier Duursma and Sean Lycett return.

I am backing the Power to win this one by less than 40 points, with the side winning by this scoreline in their last three in a row on the road.
