Teams with the Bye: Adelaide Crows and Brisbane Lions

Toughest game to pick a winner in: Western Bulldogs v Geelong (Western Bulldogs)

Thursday Afternoon Game

Hawthorn v Essendon
If both teams performed the way they did in Round 12 this should be a tough game to decide who wins. Both teams are unlikely to make finals in AFL Season 2020. Hawthorn should be too good.
Key matchup: James Worpel v Zach Merrett
Hawthorn Game Changer: James Worpel
Essendon Game Changer: Zach Merrett
My Prediction: Hawthorn

Thursday Night Game

Richmond v West Coast
This is an important game for both teams top four aspirations.
Key matchup: Shai Bolton v Tim Kelly
Richmond Game Changer: Kane Lambert
West Coast Game Changer: Jeremy McGovern
My Prediction: West Coast

Friday Night Game

Western Bulldogs v Geelong
Western Bulldogs would be looking to bring the form they showed in the second half of Round 12 into Round 13. If Geelong played the way they did against the Adelaide Crows then they should lose in Round 13.
Key matchup: Lachie Hunter v Sam Menegola
Western Bulldogs Game Changer: Lachie Hunter
Geelong Game Changer: Sam Menegola
My Prediction: Western Bulldogs

Saturday Afternoon Game

Port Adelaide v Sydney Swans
It will be an intriguing game, as Essendon need to bounce back from a bad loss in Round 12 against St Kilda.
Key matchup: Tom Rockliff v Tom Papley
Port Adelaide Game Changer: Travis Boak
Sydney Swans Game Changer: Luke Parker
My Prediction: Port Adelaide

Saturday Afternoon Game (Perth Time)

Key matchup: Sean Darcy v Shane Mumford
Fremantle Game Changer: Luke Ryan
GWS Game Changer: Josh Kelly
My Prediction: Fremantle

Saturday Night Game

Melbourne Demons v St Kilda
This will be a tough game of footy. If the two teams played the way they did in Round 12 then St Kilda will win it.
Key matchup: Jake Lever v Tim Membrey
Melbourne Demons Game Changer: Clayton Oliver
St Kilda Game Changer: Jack Sinclair
My Prediction: St Kilda

Sunday Afternoon Game

Carlton v Collingwood
This should be a good game between two traditional rivals. Carlton should win based on the two teams Round 12 display.

Carlton Game Changer: Harry McKay
Collingwood Game Changer: Josh Daicos
My Prediction: Carlton

Sunday Night Game

Gold Coast v North Melbourne
This is an important for both teams, as a win will help the team that wins going into preseason. The Gold Coast’s finals aspirations are probably gone, while North Melbourne will want a win to build belief.

Gold Coast Game Changer: Lachie Weller
