Greater Western Sydney vs Western Bulldogs (Friday) Betting Preview & Tips
These two teams played a classic preliminary final and this shapes as revenge for GWS
These two teams played a classic preliminary final and this shapes as revenge for GWS.
Both these teams come into this match with four wins for the season, but the feeling Is the Giants are playing brilliantly while the Bulldogs are struggling to recapture their 2017 form which saw them win their second premiership in club history and their first since 1954.
This game is to be the first meeting since the classic preliminary final last year where the tenacious Bulldogs won by a goal.
Big things are tipped from the Giants this season, after losing Round 1 to Adelaide they have looked great winning four straight games including conquering Sydney by 42 points last week.
The most impressive thing about the Giants win is that not one single player had 30 disposals. They again spread the midfield load and they simply will have too many weapons for the Bulldogs and most sides this season.
Josh Kelly has been one of many Giants midfielders to find plenty of the footy so far this season; he had 29 touches in the preliminary final loss and has been in good form throughout the season, we suggest having something on his over disposals (25.5 with Crownbet and TopSport).
The Bulldogs overcame a horror first half against the Brisbane Lions last week to eventually win by 32 points and although they are likely to get better as the season rolls on, it is hard to see them having any answer for the rampaging Giants.
GWS has registered big scores the last month to the tune of 160, 109, 112 and 105 and it looks a good betting opportunity again for punters wanting to sit back and cash in on them.
The over 185.5 (Bet 365) should get up in Total Match Points and we are especially keen on the first quarter line of -5.5 for the Giants also at Bet 365.
If you want a risk free bet then pile into the $1.36 (Ladbrokes) on the Giants winning.
When the sides met last Jonathon Patton kicked four goals, he looks a good bet to kick three goals or more.
GWS OVER 15.5
OVER 185.5/GWS -20.5
