Kangaroos vs Saints Round 10 Match Prediction

To put it simply, the Kangaroos choked last week. They were 30 points ahead approaching the final part of the fourth quarter and they lost; by one measly point. It was one of many close losses this season for the mighty blue and whites and will be cause for concern for supporters and the team alike. The coach has publicly shamed the side for their lack of mental fortitude. If it wasn’t for four close losses this season, the Roos side would be in the top 8. Majak Daw was disappointing for the Roos and he has suffered from the selection axe this week. Jack Ziebell is out after being handed a three match ban for a high bump. The Roos have a 3-6 win loss record for the season.

The Saints match against the Bulldogs was an arm wrestle. The Bulldogs dominated the clearances, contested possessions and centre clearances. Nick Riewoldt was again handy in the match, kicking 4 goals and being involved in numerous passages of important play. To lose by only 9 points would have disappointing as the game was within reach despite the Saints losing out in the key statistical categories. For the Saints, midfielder Lenny Hayes is out injured and Clint Jones and Beau Master have been dropped.

The Saints have a 2-7 win loss record and their season is effectively over.
There comes a point where desperation means overcoming mental struggles. Therefore, the Kangaroos should win this match and win with ease. I am tipping the Kangaroos because the Saints have been disappointing this year and despite not being in the top 8, the Kangaroos have played really well this year and should be in a position to punish the Saints.

The line bet is a good chance to be covered in this match.
