Western Bulldogs vs Fremantle Dockers Tips

The Western Bulldogs come into their latest game on the back of a powerful 105-84 win over the North Melbourne Kangaroos that saw a run of three defeats in a row brought to an end.

The Fremantle Dockers also ended a losing run, with two defeats in a row brought to an end by a 93-61 win over the Essendon Bombers. This will be tougher on the road and the Dogs are tipped.

Head to Head

The Bulldogs won the reverse of this fixture back in April to end a run of two wins in a row for the Dockers. In their last 10, the Dockers have won six times, while the Bulldogs have four wins. 

Western Bulldogs Form 

The Western Bulldogs had to battle for their win over the North Melbourne Kangaroos as they finally ended a run of three defeats in a row. 

The Bulldogs had been on a five-game winning run before they were consigned to three defeats in a row, and they will hope that their latest win will see them climb the ladder once again. 

Western Bulldogs Team News

The Bulldogs have omitted Oskar Baker, while both Liam Jones and Tim O'Brien are injured. 

Meanwhile, Ryan Gardner, James O'Donnell and debutant Caleb Poulter come into the side.

Fremantle Dockers Form

The Fremantle Dockers ended a two-match losing run by beating the Essendon Bombers 93-61 to move up to 11th on the ladder. 

Matches on the road have not been particularly positive for Fremantle, with the Dockers winning just two of their six away games this year.

I am backing the Dockers to come away with a win in this one in a match that will be fairly low-scoring.
