The Giants are primed for another big win here.

 

Although they should win and win easily, this shapes as a danger game for Greater Western Sydney who is on the road and without a host of key players.

 

GWS will be keen to bounce back after a shock loss to Carlton last week and have lost top spot on the table as a result.


Brisbane is slowly heading in the right direction; they followed an upset win against Fremantle with a competitive performance against Port Adelaide last week where they were eventually overpowered by 40 points.

 

The sides met once last season in Round 17 at the GABBA with GWS winning by 79 points.

 

That game was a total shootout with 213 points scored and these teams average the second and third highest scoring games this season with only ladder leaders Adelaide topping them.

 

One bet to look at then is the total game score going over 202.5 which is paying $1.90 @ Luxbet.

 

The biggest positive this season has been Dayne Zorko who has taken the next step and must now be considered one of the best players in the competition. Zorko was tremendous against Port Adelaide last week collecting 32 disposals and kicking two goals.

 

The Giants injuries include star midfielder Josh Kelly who is out for up to a month on the sidelines with a hip injury. This is a major blow for punters who took $251 about him winning the Brownlow at the start of the season.

 

GWS will be keen to bounce back after the loss to Carlton so look for exciting small forward Toby Greene to have a big game after he kicked zero goals and five behinds in the match.

 

If you are looking for a player to kick the first and most goals in the game Greene looks a good play.

 

GWS should be able to grind out a win, the value play might be to back them winning by under 39.5 points.

 

STATS BET

Dylan Shiel had 34 disposals when these sides met last and looks a good bet to collect the most.

 

 

RECOMMENDED BET:

GWS UNDER 39.5 WINNING MARGIN


VALUE PLAY:

DYLAN SHIEL 35+ DISPOSALS
