Friday Night Game
Western Bulldogs v Melbourne Demons
The Western Bulldogs should win this game. The fact that they have a few injuries will show they have depth. The main thing that should take place is that Luke Beveridge’s system is the best in the competition.
Key matchup: Jack Macrae v Clayton Oliver
Western Bulldogs Game Changer: Jack Macrae
Melbourne Demons Game Changer: Ed Langdon
My Prediction: Western Bulldogs
Saturday Afternoon Games (Eastern Time)
Collingwood v Geelong Cats
The Cats should win this game comfortably. Collingwood will be wanting to be competitive like they were in Round 10 against Port Adelaide. Unfortunately, playing the Cats is a different story. The Cats should have a comfortable win.
Key matchup: Josh Daicos v Cameron Guthrie
Collingwood Game Changer: Will Hoskin-Elliott
Geelong Cats Game Changer: Sam Menegola
My Prediction: Geelong Cats
Brisbane Lions v GWS Giants
If both teams play to their optimum level this will be like a final. The tempo of this contest should showcase footy.
Key matchup: Marcus Adams v Jeremy Finlayson
Brisbane Lions Game Changer: Daniel Rich
GWS Giants Game Changer: Tim Taranto
My Prediction: GWS Giants
Saturday Evening Game (Melbourne Time)
St Kilda v North Melbourne
This is a game where there could be an upset. Both teams played poorly in Round 10 and should be looking to get back into form with a win.
Key matchup: Paddy Ryder v Todd Goldstein
St Kilda Game Changer: Tim Membrey
North Melbourne Game Changer: Nick Larkey
My Prediction: North Melbourne
Saturday Night Games
Gold Coast Suns v Hawthorn
Both teams should be looking to improve on their display in Round 10. Expect Hawthorn to be too good.
Key matchup: Lachie Weller v Tom Mitchell
Gold Coast Suns Game Changer: Chris Burgess
Hawthorn Game Changer: Jacob Koschitzke
My Prediction: Hawthorn
West Coast Eagles v Essendon
This is a game that Essendon must win, in order to keep their finals hopes alive.
Key matchup: Jack Darling v James Stewart
West Coast Eagles Game Changer: Jamie Cripps
Essendon Game Changer: Alec Waterman
My Prediction: Essendon
Sunday Afternoon Games (Eastern Time)
Richmond v Adelaide Crows
There’s no doubt that the Crows can beat Richmond. They should take a fair amount of morale from being the only team to have beaten the Demons this Season. The fact that the win came last week should give them good momentum to beat the reigning premiers.
Key matchup: Trent Cotchin v Ben Keays
Richmond Game Changer: Josh Caddy
Adelaide Crows Game Changer: Darcy Fogarty
My Prediction: Adelaide Crows
Sydney Swans v Carlton
The Sydney Swans should be too good that should be too good for Carlton.

Sunday Evening Game (Adelaide Time)
Port Adelaide v Fremantle Dockers
The Dockers need to build on their win they had in Round 10 against the Swans, when they take on Port Adelaide, in order to keep their finals hopes alive.
Key matchup: Travis Boak v Nat Fyfe
Port Adelaide Game Changer: Karl Amon
Fremantle Dockers Game Changer: Sean Darcy
My Prediction: Fremantle Dockers
