2013 AFL Round 9: Collingwood Magpies vs.
Sydney Swans
May 22, 2013 by Marc Jerbs

On Friday, defending champion Sydney Swans faces the Collingwood Magpies in Round 9 of the Australian Football League. Game time is set at 7:50PM local time and will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

The Sydney Swans have played in spurts this season but have struggled to maintain their focus to put together their best form for four quarter every round. They are in 4th place in the ladder with 2 losses against Geelong and Hawthorn.

Swans' players Dan Hannebery, Jarrad McVeigh and Kieren Jack have played up to their potential but the trio needs help with their fellow players. Sydney has yet to show their superb form and skills that gave them the championship title last season.

The Magpies would like to build on their convincing win to previously unbeaten Geelong Cats. Collingwood has won 11 of the last 12 games against Sydney. It would be another classic upset for two consecutive rounds if the Magpies beat the Swans this Friday night.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Collingwood Magpies as a 9.5-point favorite to beat the Sydney Swans.
