Essendon are short priced favourites at $1.20 after winning last weekend against the Lions. The Bombers were up by as much as 42 points before the Lions came back to trail by just 5 at the final break. Showing character and skill under pressure the Bombers kicked straight in the final quarter to push it back out to a 27 point win. Fantasia kicked 5 for Essendon with Merrett (32 possessions) and Watson (34 possessions) once again leading from the front.

Carlton were 3 points up at three quarter time against the Demons but couldn’t run the game out kicking 2.2 to the Demons 6.3 to lose by 22 points.

Carlton have fought out their first two games but with Essendon finding form with a new group they will be too strong for the Blues at the MCG.
