2014 AFL Round 20: Richmond Tigers vs. Essendon Bombers
August 06, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Friday, the Richmond Tigers will go up against the Essendon Bombers at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Round 20 of the AFL. The game is set to start at 7:50PM local time.

Richmond bleak season took a different route when they stopped their four-game losing streak in Round 15 and continued their resurgence with a five-game winning steak up to Round 19.

The Tigers still have a chance to qualify for the No.8 position in the standings. However, three other teams are also vying to punch their way for the last spot. There isn't much room for error for Richmond if they want to qualify.

Essendon have only lost one game in about a month. They are in 7th place and have an advantage over Collingwood and Gold Coast in percentage points. The Bombers won over the Tigers in Round 11 this season and would like to move up in the standings.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Essendon Bombers as an 11.5-point favorite to beat the Richmond Tigers on Friday night.
