Saturday AFL action kicks off with an intriguing contest between the Giants and the Eagles at Spotless Stadium. Adam Simpson has the Weagles absolutely humming in 2nd place after 6 straight wins, though they were dealt a blow last week when prime mover Luke Shuey went down with a hamstring injury. The Rolls Royce GWS side, however, is certainly NOT humming after a deplorable performance last round saw them lose by 61 points. Leon Cameron will be expecting a big response from his troops at home, against the side that they pummeled by 67 points in the Semi Final last year.

Form

GWS (LWDWL) – The Giants have now failed to cover the spread in their last 6 games, which culminated in the embarrassing 61 point loss to the Cats last round- one of their worst losses they’ve ever had. In fact, the mere 32 points they registered was their second worst of all time. Their disposal efficiency in that game was the seventh-lowest Champion Data has ever recorded and didn’t Leon Cameron let them know about it. They need a huge lift across the board.

West Coast (WWWWW) – Who picked the Weagles to be sitting 2nd on the ladder after 7 rounds? Not the Wolf! They have played some breathtaking footy this season and are on a 6 game winning streak, with Jack Redden finally turning into the recruit they’ve always hoped he was (registering 30 disposals and a goal in his last 2 games) while Jack Darling is currently the most rampaging, versatile and damaging forward in the competition.

Stats That Matter
– GWS are 1-4 ATS as favourites
– Callan Ward is averaging 31 disposals per game in his past 3 against West Coast
– The Giants have won the last 3 meetings
– West Coast are 0-3 on the Over/Under in their past 3 matches
– Josh Kennedy has kicked 35 goals in his 8 matches against the Giants
– GWS have not covered the spread since Round 1

Betting Data

2018 Line: GWS- 1-6; West Coast- 4-3
2018 Over-Under: GWS- 2-5; West Coast- 3-4

What To Expect

The Wolf is expecting a big response from GWS in this game, and is expecting them to come out firing against an Eagles side that may start a little slow before working into the game. The battle between Phil Davis and Kennedy/Darling will be absorbing in itself, but he needs his midfield to compete harder to give him a better chance of co-ordinating the defence against a dangerous Eagles forward line. Callan Ward, in his 200th game, will lead by example and get his troops over the line in what is a critical game for the psyche of the Giants.
