Prediction: And so begins the tight turnarounds. The Power don't get much time to revel in their big win over the Dees from last Round, while equally, the Dogs don't need to dwell on their big loss to the Tigers. It's hard to see the Dogs pulling off the win at Adelaide Oval given these teams' current form lines.

Score: Power 8.7 (55) def. Bulldogs 5.12 (42)

Tuesday, August 4

Richmond vs. Brisbane, Metricon Stadium, 7.10pm (AEST)

Team news: Nick Vlastuin comes in for his 150th game for the Tigers, while Oleg Markov makes way. For the Lions, Jack Payne makes his debut and veteran Grant Birchall comes out (managed).

Prediction: If Dustin Martin is one of Richmond's biggest barometers, then the Tigers are looking ominous, even to the Lions, who keep going from strength to strength. Martin was a wrecking ball in his side's monster win over the Dogs last round, and if he can replicate that form against on Tuesday, the Tigers might get the chocolates. After all, they don't mind playing the Lions in Queensland...

Score: Tigers 12.10 (82) def. Lions 4.17 (41)

Wednesday, August 5

Geelong vs. North Melbourne, Gabba, 5.40pm (AEST)

Team news: The Cats have recalled Tom Atkins, Jack Steven, Rhys Stanley, Joel Selwood and Zach Guthrie for this match, while Charlie Constable, Jake Kolodjashnij, Gary Rohan, Esava Ratugolea and Brandan Parfitt go out. For North, Ben Brown and Jared Polec are among four ins alongside Will Walker and debutant Lachie Hosie, while Kyron Hayden, Nick Larkey, Curtis Taylor and Luke Davies-Uniacke go out.

Prediction: North broke a six-game losing streak last round, though their win did come against the winless and hapless Crows. It's unlikely they'll be able to give the Cats a run for their money, who fell just short against the Eagles despite leading for most of that match.

Score: Cats 13.12 (90) def. Roos 9.3 (57)

Adelaide vs. Melbourne, Adelaide Oval, 8.10pm (AEST)

Team news: Both teams have made mass changes for this match; the Dees have brought in Adam Tomlinson, Harley Bennell, Aaron vandenBerg and Alex Neal-Bullen for Oscar and Tom McDonald (both omitted), Mitch Hannan and youngster Kysaiah Pickett.

The Crows have made eight changes: in comes Tom Doedee, Ned McHenry, Fischer McAsey, Taylor Walker, David Mackay, Harry Schoenberg, Darcy Fogarty and Lachie Sholl, and out goes Rory Atkins, Riley Knight Bryce Gibbs, Kieran Strachan, Kyle Hartigan, Andrew McPherson, Shane McAdam and Tyson Stengle.

Prediction: Is this Adelaide's big chance to get their first win for the year? They're at home, with a crowd, against the Dees, who have looked incredibly poor at times in 2020. Though if the Crows dish up similar footy to that which they did last start against the Roos, they'll get done - and easily.

Score: Crows 5.7 (37) def by. Demons 13.10 (88)

Thursday, August 6

Collingwood vs. Sydney, Gabba, 5.40pm (AEST)

Team news: Jordan Roughead, Callum Brown, Ben Reid andTrey Ruscoe come in for the Pies, who have dropped Travis Varcoe, Mark Keane, Chris Mayne and Darcy Cameron. Sydney have brought in Dylan Stephens, Lewis Melican, Jackson Thurlow and Sam Wicks for Ryan Clarke, Lewis Taylor, Nick Blakey and Sam Gray.

Prediction: Collingwood will make the AFL's longest trip from Perth to Brisbane to take on the Swans at the Gabba. The Pies blew a three-quarter time lead against the Dockers on Sunday night, and will be keep to get back on track against a relatively inexperienced Sydney side. If the Magpies are serious about their chances in 2020, they'll win this and somewhat easily.

Score: Collingwood 6. 14 (50) def. Sydney 6. 5 (41)

Gold Coast vs. St Kilda, Metricon Stadium, 8.10pm (AEST)

Team news: For the Suns, Sean Lemmens and Jeremy Sharp come in for Pearce Hanley and Darcy MacPherson. St Kilda have recalled Ben Long and Dean Kent for Matt Parker and Shane Savage.

Prediction: St Kilda - so hot right now. Everything always looks rosy after a win, but it does seem like the Saints are a strong side across the board, and they should hand Gold Coast another loss.

Score: St Kilda 12. 6 (78) def. Gold Coast 11. 8 (74)

Friday, August 7

Essendon vs. GWS, Metricon Stadium, 7:50pm (AEST)

Team news: Toby Greene and Matt de Boer are set to miss for the Giants after both suffering hamstring strains against the Suns.

Prediction: The loss of Toby is a tough one for the Giants to swallow, as he was in All-Australian form before hitting the pine. This will be GWS's second straight game at Metricon, too, and they should have enough firepower to deny the Bombers the four points.

Tip: GWS by 8 points.

Score: Essendon 8.7 (55) def. by GWS 8.11 (59)
