St Kilda have been threatening to move up the ladder in recent years and in 2020, it is finally happening. Heading into round nine, the young Saints are sitting in fourth and firm favourites to knock over the Swans and continue their postseason push.

Conversely, Sydney kept father time at bay for years by topping up their list and remaining highly competitive. But they are finally in a clear rebuilding phase led by a talented group of youngsters. The future looks bright, but it's still some time away for the fledgling Swans.

Who will win Saints vs Swans?

The Swans have won 10 straight games against St Kilda dating back to 2012. All bar two of those wins were by seven goals or more. But it is another sign of the shifting landscape in the AFL that the Saints are strong favourites for this match.

While the harbour city side is rebuilding, the Saints' long rebuild is starting to bear fruit under coach Brett Ratten. It might be closer than many think, but we believe St Kilda will gain another important four points in this one.
