AFL Round 21: Collingwood Magpies vs
North Melbourne Kangaroos
August 15, 2012 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Collingwood Magpies will meet the North Melbourne Kangaroos in Round 21 of the Australian Football League. The fixture will be held in Etihad Stadium at 740PM local time.

The Magpies' win over the Swans last Saturday pushed them for a three way tie with the Sydney Swans and Adelaide Crows at the AFL ladder. Collingwood improved its chances to sneak in at 1st or 2nd place just in time for the AFL Finals Series which starts on September 7.

North Melbourne's impressive win over Essendon strengthened their hold on the top eight clubs that will qualify for the AFL Finals Series. The Kangaroos has lost its past four games to the Magpies by a whopping average of 80.5 points. However, North Melbourne's 2012 form implies that they could be more competitive this Saturday.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Collingwood Magpies as a 22.5-point favorite to beat North Melbourne Kangaroos. The Magpies should also watch themselves since the Kangaroos have beaten current champion Geelong and 2nd-placed Adelaide this season.
