Aussie Rules: can you beat Bing?

Search {AFL} on and the answer will include not just the latest scores, schedules and ladder, but also Bing's predictions for the weekend's games.

Bing Predicts is a feature that uses machine-learning to discover and analyse trends from both web and social activity, along with other inputs such as historical data and current form, to predict the outcome of many types of events - including the AFL.
Here's our thoughts about the all the upcoming action this weekend from our resident Aussie Rules expert:
West Coast Eagles vs Essendon
Things could get ugly at Domain Stadium as West Coast look to get their season back on track against the struggling Bombers. The Eagles will be fresh off the bye and looking to boost their percentage through their potent forward line of Kennedy, Darling, LeCras and co.
Port Adelaide v Richmond
Both of these teams had such high hopes leading in to 2016, but now find themselves in a do or die clash on the Friday night stage. With Dustin Martin in career best form, home ground advantage might not be enough for the Power.
Gold Coast Suns vs St Kilda
The Saints will be full of confidence after their upset win over the Cats last week and suddenly have a Top 8 spot in their sights, although the Suns are finally starting to get fit and were gallant last week against Hawthorn. This one is really hard to pick but Bing Predicts St Kilda will edge it.
Sydney Swans v Western Bulldogs
Set to be game of the round as the dogs head to the SCG to take on the Swans. Bing Predicts the Dogs to cause an upset win, but Jake Stringer needs to find some of his best form and kick a few goals. The game will likely be won in the midfield, with Jack, Parker, Kennedy and co. going up against the younger Bontempelli, Wallis and Liberatore.
Carlton v Collingwood
It might be a battle between 13th and 14th on the ladder, but Carlton v Collingwood is always a fierce contest. While Collingwood will be keen to make up for their loss to Carlton earlier in the year, Bing is predicting the Pies will fall short again.
Melbourne v Adelaide Crows
The Crows forward line of Walker, Betts and Jenkins is destroying teams in their wake, and we don’t expect Melbourne to be able to hold them down either, despite the Dees genuine improvement in 2016.
