Geelong vs Adelaide Betting Tips
GMHBA Stadium, Saturday, May 28, 1:45 p.m. (AEST)
Injured: Patrick Dangerfield, Jon Ceglar, Jack Henry, Max Holmes, Esava Ratugolea, Sam Menegola, Shaun Higgins, Quinton Narkle (Out)
The Cats have a fair injured list at the moment, headlined by star midfielder Patrick Dangerfield. Danger continues to battle a calf injury that will likely keep him out for at least a month.
The Cats bounced back from a disappointing loss to the Saints in the ninth inning with an impressive home win over the Power over the weekend. Although they have been shaky on the road this season, they still look like a juggernaut at the GMHBA stadium.
Cameron Guthrie topped the win with 38 touches while Jeremy Cameron continued his impressive form with 1 goal and 24 touches.
Injuries: Paul Seedsman, Rory Sloane (Out) Josh Rachele (Test)
The Crows look good on the injury front. Besides long-term injuries to Seedsman and Sloane, youngsters Josh Rachele and Taylor Walker are the only other concerns.
The Crows looked pretty good at 3-3 after six rounds, however, they lost their last four on the trot to drop down to 15th on the ladder. They dropped 21 points to the Saints on Saturday night after leading for the majority of the home game.
The Crows have desperately struggled to find routes to goal over the past month. In their last five games, they’ve averaged just 64.0 points per game and without Taylor Walker this week, the task becomes even more difficult.
This game feels like a strong sub to me. The Cats are among the top four defensemen in the competition, allowing just 62 points per game at GMHBA Stadium this season. I think there’s a good chance they’ll keep the Crows under 60 points on the weekend. Take the underwear.

Jeremy Cameron racked up 24 touches over the weekend, his best in a game this season so far. He’s averaging 14.7 per game but I think he’s in line for a bit higher up the pitch role this week. Support it to get 16+.
Jeremy Cameron 16+ Assignments ($1.96 at Bet Right)
No Taylor Walker or Josh Rachele in the line-up means there should be some ball in Adelaide’s attacking line. James Rowe looked dangerous against the Saints at the weekend, kicking 1.1 but getting plenty of the ball in the front half for the Crows.
