West Coast vs Adelaide (Sunday) Betting Preview & Tips
Adelaide will be keen to head into September with a victory
Adelaide will be keen to head into September with a victory.
The Adelaide Crows will secure top spot on the AFL ladder with a win and by the time this game comes around the season could be mathematically over for the West Coast Eagles.
The Eagles entered the season one of the premiership fancies but are on the brink of failing to even make the finals, just two years after they appeared in the Grand Final when losing to Hawthorn.
By contrast, Adelaide has had an outstanding season and are guaranteed a top two finish and a home final in Week One.
The Crows will be keen to win this match and head into the finals full of momentum after a three-point loss at the hands of the Sydney Swans last Friday night in one of the most entertaining games of the season.
The Crouch boys continued their outstanding season combining for 60 disposals last Friday night with Matt finding the ball 34 times and Brad having 26 touches.
The Crows have two players in the mix for the Brownlow Medal with Matt Crouch ($67 at Crownbet and William Hill) and Rory Sloane $41 at TAB and William Hill.
While it is hard to see either of those two players polling more votes than Dustin Martin they both could be worth looking at for top five chances.
Adelaide does look a good bet to finish the weekend with a win because their midfield has more class and grunt than the Eagles and should be able to take control of the game from the outset.
Eagles full-forward Josh Kennedy has been the highlight for West Coast this season and enters the round four goals clear in the Coleman Medal race and will be keen to boot a bag and secure the award for a third straight season.
Matt Crouch had 34 disposals last week and looks a good bet for the most.
