Melbourne Demons vs Fremantle Dockers Predictions

The Melbourne Demons were left to rue what might have been last week as their four-match winning run was brought to an end in an enthralling 80-76 loss to the Port Adelaide Power.

The Fremantle Dockers arrive for this one on the back of three wins in a row after downing the Geelong Cats in a 106-77 triumph, but they face an uphill task against the Demons.

Head to Head

The Demons won the last clash between the sides in an 85-39 win in 2022. In their last 10, the Demons have five wins, while the Dockers also have five victories. 

Melbourne Demons Form 

The Melbourne Demons were left with some real questions in their last game as they were edged 80-76 by the Port Adelaide Power to see them fall a win behind their conquerors on the ladder. 

This defeat saw a run of four wins brought to an end in frustrating style with the Dees having beaten the Richmond Tigers, North Melbourne Kangaroos, Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn Hawks.

However, the Demons have been very good at ensuring losing does not snowball, with their two previous defeats always followed by a win.

The Demons are without Clayton Oliver (hamstring) and Lachie Hunter (suspended). 

Tom Sparrow and James Harmes come into the side.

Fremantle Dockers Form 

The Fremantle Dockers are slowly edging up the ladder, with their three-game winning run enough to see them sitting in 10th-place after 10 matches. 

An impressive 106-77 triumph against the Geelong Cats was a powerful result last week, and it means the Dockers boast a three-game winning run heading into this one. 

What will worry Fremantle is the fact that they have lost three of their four away games this term, conceding 110+ in two of those three defeats.

Nat Fyfe is fit for this one as the superstar looks to play the full game against Melbourne this week. 

Michael Walters does, however, miss out through injury.

I am backing the Demons to win this one comfortably. They have been brilliant at home this year and are tipped to bounce back from their loss last week in style.
