The Western Bulldogs have won the past two games against the Dockers and they will make it three with a win at Optus Stadium as the 2.5-point underdogs. I am taking the visitors' Money Line for the extra value and after being burnt by the Bulldogs quick-start against the Saints last week, I am going to take them Over their 79.5-point Team Total, considering their previous two performances against the Dockers last season. 

With Jamarra Ugle-Hagan out Aaron Naughton is the center of the Bulldogs attack, so 3+ goals again in this much is a safe one.

  • The Western Bulldogs have won 5 of the past 6 regular season matches against the Fremantle Dockers. 
  • The Western Bulldogs scored an average of 110 points against Fremantle in their two matches last season.
  • Fremantle lost the contested possessions 132-108 last week against West Coast.
  • Aaron Naughton kicked 6 goals last week against St. Kilda.

After a blistering start to the year winning their opening three matches, the Dockers have now dropped their last three, including an embarrassing performance against West Coast in the Western Derby, going down to the Eagles 105-68 in their first loss to their cross-town rivals in six matches.

The Dockers had the best defensive record of any team before their big loss to the Eagles, before all of their hard offseason work appeared to diminish into the breeze. Eagle’s young phenom Harley Reid and Elliot Yeo blitz Freo through the middle with the Dockers having no answer for the speed and slickness of the West Coast midfield.

The Dockers have also been a bottom-six team in scoring and will need to find a way this week to turn their season back around.

Fremantle Team News

Sam Switkowski is expected to clear concussion protocols and be fit to play this week, as well as Michael Frederick who will need to be cleared after a final test on his hamstring closer to match day.

Jye Amiss appears in good shape after a concussion last weekend, however, he will not be available due to concussion protocol.

The Bulldogs silenced their critics last weekend by blowing St. Kilda out of the water in the first half, scoring 76 points to 27 before the main break, which was just 2.5 points off their expected full time team total for the match.  

The Doggies were relentless around the contest and linked well with their forwards with Aaron Naughton kicking an equal career-high of 6 goals as the Bulldogs nailed their first 12 set shots of the match to cruise to victory 124-64.

The Western Bulldogs were under fire heading into their round 6 clash with the Saints and even without Jamarra Ugle-Hagan they were able to answer the big question of effort and commitment by putting in the best performance of the season by far.

A huge boost for the Doggies will see Tom Liberatore back from concussion, however Jamarra Ugle-Hagan is still expected to be missing with personal reasons.
