Our analyst is back for another week of AFL and has found some selections for you to follow.

COLLINGWOOD $1.38 v CARLTON $3.10 – Friday, 7.50pm MCG

There’s a lot at stake for the Blues but they will have to pull one out of the box with its mounting injury list to win this. They need to win though, and the Pies virtually have the top spot sewn up so they can take the foot of the accelerator. Whether they want to toy with their form remains to be seen. The Blues need to win to be prominent in the race for the eight.

It should be close.
