Verdict

This is a must win for Richmond if they are going to make the finals. Richmond are backed to return to the winners list against Fremantle.

Fremantle will still believe they are just as much a chance to make finals as Richmond, but they are without key personnel. Richmond winning by a 40+ point margin is worth a small stake.

The ultra-consistent Jaden Short and young gun Adam Cerra are both tipped to collect 20+ disposals.
