GWS are looking the goods to make it three straight over the Bombers.


Greater Western Sydney overcame a huge obstacle last week by defeating the West Coast Eagles in Perth and should carry on their winning ways when hosting Essendon.


The scary thing for opposition clubs is that the Giants still have a group of stars sidelined through injury.


Josh Kelly is leading the midfield and after starting the season $251 for the Brownlow Medal he could be leading the count as it stands.

Last week the Giants needed a lift in the last quarter and it came from livewire Toby Greene who booted a few match-winning goals and will give the Bombers defence plenty of headaches. Look for him to again have a big influence and he is worth a small bet to kick both the First and Most Goals in the match.


Essendon had a two-game winning streak snapped last week when they went down to Richmond. The Tigers did as they pleased through the middle of the ground and the worrying thing for the Bombers is that area of the ground is also the strength for Greater Western Sydney and the area where they can really assert their authority.


David Zaharakis had a game high 35 disposals in the loss to Richmond last week and while he can be hot and cold, he looks a good chance to again gain 30 or More and one we can have a small bet on.


We anticipate the Giants will win this game comfortably; they look a good anchor for multi bets.


If you are not on Greater Western Sydney to win the premiership yet we strongly suggest taking the $4.50 currently available with TAB and Luxbet.


The Giants should finish top two and that will give you a wonderful trading opportunity.


The Bombers have shown glimpses this season, but we don’t predict they will make the finals and $1.40 (bet 365) on them missing seems appealing.



Gary Ablett had a game high 32 touches when these teams met last and we like him again in disposals markets. The $2.37 @ Sportsbet to have 35 or More looks nice.
