Moneyball’s $4K Saturday Special – Rd. 23

For the last time in the home and away season ( I will be back next week), here are my best tips for the big Saturday $4K Special.

Here we go – the last roster game for the season, but even though I’ll be back next week, we still have $4K on the line today.

Geelong v Gold Coast 1:45pm
Richmond v Bulldogs
Fremantle v Collingwood
Sydney v Hawthorn 7:25pm
Carlton v Adelaide 7:25pm

Now for my best and sneaky best options for today…

Patrick Dangerfield (MID, $9,800) 

He’s listed as the 6th most expensive today and worth every cent.

He has been stepping up in recent weeks averaging 123 in his last three games and his record against the Suns is pretty amazing with scores of 96, 119, 129 and 138 coming in his last four games.

Jack Crisp (DEF, $8,000)

There isn’t many defenders that really tickle my fancy today (what a funny saying) so I’ll have Crisp right up there at the top.

He only managed 73 last week, but against the Dockers, he will find this much easier.

Before his 73 last week, he did score 108 and 105 which is where I expect him to be today.

This game should be a flogging and last week when the Cats gave the Dockers a 100+ pumping it was

Ryan Abbott (RUC, $3,500)

The biggest lock of the day and why wouldn’t it be?

Abbott had a huge 109 last weekend and today he’s up against Witts. This will be much tougher than Sean Darcy last week, but at this price you can’t go wrong. Will have huge ownership.

Josh Dunkley (FWD, $8,900) 

He’s a forward in Moneyball and that’s worth an extra $2K in my book.

Dunkley (Roy’s boy) has been ultra-impressive in recent weeks and hasn’t put a foot wrong in his last 8 games with a lowest score of just 96.

Coming off a huge 132 last week, he’s a midfielder now and scores like a pig in the making.

Josh Thomas (FWD, $6,400)

My roughie of the day.

Thomas scored 101 against the Dockers earlier this year and will be over-looked by many coaches in this one after scores of 54 and 55 in recent weeks.

He loves playing the easy teams where he has scored 98 (Suns), 103 (Bris) and 107 (Blues) this year.

Collingwood win this by 60+ points and guys like Thomas will be running a muck.

Steele Sidebottom (MID, $9,100) 

Yes yes yes… another Pie makes the list today and why not?

Sidebottom’s numbers against the Dockers are huge with scores of 131 and 127 coming in his last two games.

Fremantle are the 2nd easiest to score 100+ points on in recent weeks and during this time they have given up the 15×100+, just behind St Kilda’s 18×100+.

Steele will be unique as many will over-look him and hunt elsewhere. Bailey Banfield has been dropped for this game which means there will NO tag in sight this week.

Steele has basically scored 120+ in two of his last three games and the writing is on the wall here for a nice 140+ from Optus Stadium.
