Two in form teams collide. The Demons bounced back with a dominant win over Western Bulldogs last week, while the Lions made it seven straight victories.

Something has to give at Giants Stadium. Having kicked 102+ points in the last three games, Brisbane are tipped to edge a blockbuster. A 1-39 point winning margin is predicted.

Simon Goodwin's Melbourne produced a dominant display last Friday to record an 87-59 victory over the Western Bulldogs at Marvel Stadium.

The win, a 10th in 11 games this season, moved the Dees a win clear at the top of the ladder and enhanced their status as premiership favourites.
