CrownBet Covers Bets on Another Classic Comeback Between Bulldogs and Saints
June 24, 2015
The Western Bulldogs battle St Kilda for the second time this season on Saturday and if the sequel is as exciting as the first epic, we’ll be in for another entertaining encounter. Their round 6 clash provided an all mele mid match before the Saints stunned their opponents to win by 7 points despite trailing by as much as 55. If either team throws away a decent advantage this weekend and you’ve backed them with CrownBet, you’ll be refunded by the AFL’s official betting partner.

Saints Resurrection in Round 6
St Kilda couldn’t get going in the first half when these 2 met in May as the Bulldogs out battled their opponents all over the field. Then an all in mele on half time got the Saints blood pumping! But they trailed by 49 at the main break before the deficit stretched to 55 early in the third term. Suddenly a stunning comeback came. The Dogs desire vanished and the Saints surged. They booted a remarkable 12 second half majors to the Bulldogs 3 to secure a 94-87 win and the fifth biggest comeback in AFL/VFL history.
Bulldogs Back in Finals Race
The Bulldogs bright beginning to the season which had seen them win 4 out of 5 games had been burst by St Kilda and they could only muster one more win before the bye in round 11. But the week off did wonders and the Bulldogs battered Brisbane by 12 goals last weekend to get their season back on track. A win over the Saints on Saturday could see them back in the top 8. The Bulldogs are a $1.50 favourites to hand St Kilda an eighth loss of the season but if you have faith in the Saints you can get $2.60 on the outsiders to do the double.
