Moneyball’s Queen’s Birthday Special
Who cares about the Queen’s Birthday? We do, because it gives us a day off to pick a winning Moneyball team in the $2K special. Roy has a few under-priced players for you to consider.
It’s the Queens Birthday and our friends at Moneyball have come through with the goods for the match between the Dees and the Pies starting at 3.20pm with a tasty $2ooo up for grabs.
Levi Greenwood (MID, $7,100)
An interesting prospect for this price given he is coming off an impressive game where he managed 14 marks and scored 111. More impressive however is his history against his upcoming opponents where he has scores of 139, 127, 101, 104 and 104 in his last five.
Michael Hibberd (DEF, $7,500)
An absolute bargain for this price. He is ranked 6th for uncontested possessions and has an impressive average of 104. He should be the first picked.
Jordan DeGoey (MID, $6,400)
He certainly got off to a disappointing start following his delayed start to the season. For this price however, he has to be strongly considered on the back of 110 last week.
Brodie Grundy (RUC, $9,900)
The Dees have been giving up a ridiculous amount of points to opposition rucks, clearly ranking number one. Since Gawn went down, the opposing number 1 rucks have been averaging a whopping 117 with four scores over 124. Enter, Grundy, one of the best scoring rucks int he competition!
Bernie Vince (MID, $7,500)
Although he is not having his best year, history says that he loves paying the Pies so if you want to punt on history over form, he could be a good unique option. His last four scores against them are 120, 108, 117, 134 so if he can get in that ballpark, he is heavily under-priced.
Cam Pedersen (FWD $7,100)
is a steal for this price and it will be tough to get in the cash without him. Since getting his opportunity this season due to teammates falling around him, he hasn’t looked back with scores of over 94 in all of his five games including a top of 120. That’s a bargain for that kind of consistency and ceiling.
