St Kilda vs Richmond Tigers Predictions

Richmond may have lost their last two, but they are tipped to be too good for St Kilda in the opening game of Round 5. The Tigers have an excellent record in head to heads and a win by 1-39 points is predicted.

  • St Kilda have conceded the second-most goals of any side this season.
  • Richmond Tigers have won 5 of their last 6 matches against St Kilda.
  • Richmond Tigers have won by 1-39 points in 4 of their last 5 wins against St Kilda.

Head to Head

Richmond have had the measure of the Saints in recent times, winning five of the last six meetings between the sides.

Last season, St Kilda won 93-67 in Round 4. But the Tigers got their revenge with a 80-49 victory in the semi-final before going on to win the premiership.

St Kilda Form

Saints breathed life into their season when ending a two-game losing streak last week with a 102-82 upset of West Coast Eagles.

St Kilda trailed by 28 points at half-time, but produced a rousing second half display including a five-goal final quarter.

It was a second win of the season to go with the 86-76 victory in Round 1. 

But Saints had been below-par in losing two in a row in Rounds 2 and 3. A 91-73 loss to Melbourne Demons was followed by a 143-68 thumping at the hands of the Essendon Bombers.

Jade Gresham, Dan Hannebery and Jarryn Geary are all still out for the Saints.

Having beaten Carlton and Hawthorn by 20-plus points in the opening two rounds, the Tigers have come up short in the last two weeks.

They were rolled by the Sydney Swans in Round 3 when suffering a 117-72 defeat at the MCG.

Richmond then lost a thriller last week as Port Adelaide prevailed by two points in a 79-77 victory at the Adelaide Oval.
