Who will win Western Bulldogs vs Melbourne Demons?

Melbourne have finally produced some consistent form of late, rolling over lowly Adelaide and North Melbourne before an excellent victory over Collingwood. That carried Simon Goodwin's outfit into the top eight as they try to bounce back from a dreadful 2019 campaign.

The Bulldogs have failed a number of tests against finals-bound teams so far this season. They are coming off a comfortable victory over the Crows, but need to win these games if they are to emerge as a likely postseason contender. This is a coin toss but we're leaning slightly towards a narrow win to the Doggies.
