BULLIOH is a slight favourite among the coaches to take out Saturday's Upper Murray league grand final against Cudgewa at Cudgewa.
Federal coach Steve Fouracre and Tumbarumba's Mitch Fennessy have tipped the Bulldogs to defeat their opponents by 24 and 18 points respectively.
The predictions come despite Bullioh winning only one of their four head-to-head battles this season.
"Bullioh spread very well from stoppages and is dangerous when they link through the back half of the ground," Fouracre said.
Fennessy has a similar view.
"I just think Bullioh's big guns will fire on the day," Fennessy said.
Border-Walwa's Ben McCarthy has predicted Cudgewa to win by eight points.
"They have been strong all season and Carey (Brayden) has done a good job as coach," McCarthy said.
Corryong coach Peter Jeffries has played a straight bat, tipping a draw.
"I can't split them," Jeffries said.
For best-on-ground honours, Fouracre has tipped goalkicking machine Ash Murray to dominate the flag decider.
Murray has kicked a staggering 155 goals and the task of curbing his dominance is set to fall on Cudgewa veteran Jim Cleven's shoulders.
Fennessy has put his faith in Bulldog co-coach Aaron Gordon to be best afield, McCarthy has picked Cudgewa's Mitch Pynapples and Jeffries has selected Ryan Mee.
Saturday's match starts at 2pm.
