Verdict

Fremantle should be much too good for the Kangaroos, who have been dealt a tough hand on the fixture list. A trip to Geelong followed by an interstate trek to Perth is tough even for the best of teams, let alone one which has lost 13 in a row.

The Dockers are tipped to win by 40+ points with a -59.5 alternative handicap not beyond them at home.

Best Bet: Fremantle by 40+ Winning Margin @-109.89 at BetMGM - 3 Units
Value Bet: Fremantle -59.5 Alternative Handicap @250.00 at bet365 Sport NJ - 1 Unit
