Melbourne Demons vs Brisbane Lions Predictions

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.

  • Melbourne Demons have won 10 of their 11 matches this season.
  • Brisbane Lions have won the last 2 matches against Melbourne Demons.
  • Eight of the last 9 heads to heads have been decided by 1-39 points.
  • Brisbane Lions have won their last 7 matches. 
  • Brisbane Lions have kicked 102+ points in their last 3 matches.

Head to Head

Brisbane Lions lead the head to head 6-4 from the last 10 clashes between the sides, including winning the last two meetings.

The Lions won 107-74 in 2019 and won a tight clash 53-49 last year.

Melbourne Demons Form

The Demons reacted in the best possible way to the one-point defeat to Adelaide Crows in Round 10 as they won the top of the ladder clash last week.

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.

Ed Langdon is ruled out after suffering concussion against the Western Bulldogs last week.

Jack Viney is a chance to return for the Dees after recovering from a toe injury.

The Lions are well and truly in the minor premiership hunt after bringing up a seventh straight win last weekend.

It was another impressive performance from Chris Fagan's as they kicked a bagful again in a 129-65 win over GWS Giants at the Gabba.

It was the third straight weekend that Brisbane have topped 100 points as they moved up to third place on the ladder.

Brisbane have topped 90+ in each game of the seven game winning run and have won them by an average margin of 44.7 points.
