Friday Night Game

Melbourne Demons v Brisbane Lions
The Brisbane Lions should win this game. It could well be a great game and spectacle, as both teams are in great form.
Key matchup: Max Gawn v Oscar McInerney
Melbourne Demons Game Changer: Jake Lever
Brisbane Lions Game Changer: Mitch Robinson
My Prediction: Brisbane Lions

Saturday Afternoon Game (Eastern Time)

Sydney Swans v St Kilda
The Sydney Swans should get the win in this game, as they are in good form. At the other end of the spectrum St Kilda are outside the top eight. They would want to improve on their performance against North Melbourne in Round 11, in order to boost their morale, at the very least.
Key matchup: Tom Hickey v Paddy Ryder
Sydney Swans Game Changer: Tom Papley
St Kilda Game Changer: Jack Billings
My Prediction: Sydney Swans

Saturday Evening Game (South Australian Time)

Adelaide Crows v Collingwood
This should be an intriguing game of footy. Both teams will be coming into the game thinking that they can win. Expect the Crows to be too good for a Collingwood team without a solid game plan.
Key matchup: Rory Laird v Brayden Sier
Adelaide Crows Game Changer: Reilly O’Brien
Collingwood Magpies Game Changer: Darcy Cameron
My Prediction: Adelaide Crows

Saturday Night Game

Essendon v Richmond
This is a game where there could be an upset. Both teams played well in Round 11 and should be looking to get back to back wins.
Key matchup: Trent Cotchin v Zach Merrett
Essendon Game Changer: Darcy Parish
Richmond Game Changer: Josh Caddy
My Prediction: Essendon

Sunday Afternoon Game (Eastern Time)

Carlton v West Coast Eagles
Both teams should be looking to improve on their display in Round 11. It’s a game that Carlton should win if they want to stay in the race for a top eight finish.
Key matchup: Liam Jones v Jack Darling
Carlton Game Changer: Harry McKay
West Coast Eagles Game Changer: Andrew Gaff
My Prediction: Carlton

Sunday Evening Game (Perth Time)

Fremantle Dockers v Western Bulldogs
This is an intriguing game. Given the fact both teams lost in a disappointing fashion in Round 11 they will both be looking to bounce back.
Key matchup: Sean Darcy v Tim English
Fremantle Dockers Game Changer: James Aish
Western Bulldogs Game Changer: Jack Macrae
My Prediction: Fremantle Dockers
