The points are the Eagles’ to lose – but can they take them?
West Coast proved once again last week that they are complete pretenders and won’t be winning the premiership this season
The Sam Mitchell experiment has failed as they are simply too slow with him and Matt Priddis in the side together and opposition clubs are capitalising on their lack of leg speed.
As brave as the Lions have been at times this year they are now out to $1.90 at TAB in the most losses bet type.
Brisbane has a tough draw home and that looks a good bet especially if you are prepared to lay off before they play North Melbourne.
The Lions were outstanding in the first half against Carlton last week and their fans have genuine cause for optimism at the exciting bunch of talented youngsters that they are molding.
Two Lions players with the first name Dayne were brilliant last week.
Dayne Beams had 30 disposals and kicked three goals with Dayne Zorko equally as impassive with three goals and 28 disposals. Sadly for the Lions, Zorko will be missing this match due to suspension.
Josh Kennedy has won the Coleman Medal the last two years and put himself back in the picture with a bag of six goals last week.
Kennedy should again be the leading goal scorer in this fixture and don’t be afraid to have a bet on him to win the Coleman Medal before this match.
The Eagles are flat track bullies. They played Brisbane twice last season with the winning margin 64 points in Round 1 at Domain Stadium and 49 points in Round 18 at the GABBA.
We are expecting the Eagles will once again win this handsomely.
Most footy multis will rightfully have the Eagles in it and don’t be afraid to have something on them winning by over 40 points ($1.67 @ bet365).
Josh Kennedy booted a game high six goals last week and should again kick the most.
WEST COAST OVER 39.5
JOSH KENNEDY MOST GOALS
