Swans vs Bombers Tips & Betting Preview
Both Sydney and Essendon arrive - albeit with a long gap due to the halting of the AFL season - off narrow first round victories. The Swans prevailed by four points against the Crows in Adelaide, wihlst the Bombers held off a galant Fremantle Dockers by six points to open their account in 2020.
Whilst the Swans are historically a hard team to beat at the SCG, it's easy to come to the conclusion that they are going through a rebuilding stage currently. The absences of their superstar Buddy Franklin along with Sam Reid will be hard to overcome in what is an otherwise very inexperienced forward line.
To counter that, the Bombers perhaps aren't as suited to the smaller confines of the SCG which can negate their hard running style.
