St Kilda vs Port Adelaide Predictions


Port Adelaide have not lost to a team outside of the top 8 this season. I'm predicting that will end with ninth-placed St Kilda tipped to make it four wins in a row and continue their revival towards the finals spots.

  • St Kilda have won their last 3 matches.
  • St Kilda have seen 131 or less total match points in 3 of their last 4 matches.
  • Port Adelaide are yet to lose to a side outside of the top 8 this season.
  • Port Adelaide won 93-39 when the sides met earlier this season.
  • Port Adelaide have seen 141 or less total match points in 3 of their last 4 matches.

Head to Head 


Port Adelaide have won nine of the last 10 meetings with the Saints. That includes a dominant 93-39 victory in Adelaide in Round 6 this year.

St Kilda's only win in the last 10 clashes came last year with a 73-44 victory.

St Kilda Form 


St Kilda are being kept outside of the top eight spots on percentage only after a run of three straight wins.

The Saints have been inconsistent for much of the season, but have found their best form to win against reigning premiers Richmond Tigers, Collingwood and Brisbane Lions in the last three games.

Last week, they knocked over premiership hopefuls the Lions 95-63 at Metricon Stadium in an impressive performance.

St Kilda Team News


Unsurprisingly after last week's win, St Kilda are unchanged for the visit of the Power. 

Last week's medi-sub Josh Battle has been ruled out for the season.

Port Adelaide Form 


Port Adelaide's woes against top four sides continued as they lost last week to ladder leaders Melbourne Demons.

Power were no match for the Dees, who ran out comfortable 86-55 winners at the Adelaide Oval.

It was a fifth defeat of the season for Ken Hinkley's side with all five coming in matches against top eight rivals.

Port sit fifth on the ladder, outside of the top four on percentage. They have lost all four games played against the four sides above them.

Port Adelaide Team News 


Port Adelaide are hit by injuries with Connor Rozee, Steven Motlop and Zak Butters all ruled out.

In come Boyd Woodcock, Peter Ladhams and Riley Bonner as their replacements.

Verdict

Port Adelaide have an unbeaten record this season against bottom half teams. But St Kilda can break that with a fourth straight win that could take them into the eight. Under 149.5 points is also predicted.
