The winner of this game is guaranteed a vital top two finish.


The most important game of the season is at Geelong on Saturday night and promises to be an absolute blockbuster with the winner a big possibility of claiming premiership favouritism.


Both teams come into the clash in hot form with Geelong having won consecutive matches and the Giants on a four-game winning streak.


The winner of this will finish no worse than second and as a result potentially not leave their home ground until Grand Final day and a big chance at securing the vital week off.


To add to the intrigue the teams met in Round 15 at Simmons Stadium and the game ended in a draw.


If you anticipate you can find the winner in this clash then back that team for the premiership as their odds will shorten dramatically heading into the finals with a victory.


GWS has been the rising force of the competition this season and a top two finish would give them every chance of going all the way if they can beat the Cats at a venue they have made a fortress.


Geelong is 5-1 at Simmons Stadium this year after going 7-1 at the ground last year.


GWS is now $4.25 with Luxbet while Geelong top odds of $9 with Ladbrokes, William Hill and Crownbet.


It is such a hard game to pick but we have a slight leaning towards the Giants ($2.02 @ Luxbet) solidifying their premiership chances with a victory.


The Giants will capitalise on the absence of Joel Selwood and tough midfielders Josh Kelly and Callan Ward will be able to get their hands on the ball first and as a result, expect to see the dynamic run and carry players from the Giants outside players.


The biggest positive for the Giants is that they have won both games that they have played at Simmonds Stadium and can make it win number three here.



Patrick Dangerfield had an extraordinary 45 disposals when these teams met and looks a good bet to collect the most.
