We got West Coast up last week against Port and I think the boys from the west will cause another upset here!
Jees, I hope you punters were able to get something on the Swannies to win the Grand Final when they reached triple figures!
Good luck to those punters that are because I think they have a date with Adelaide next week to book a spot in the big one. Sydney are absolutely flying and never gave the Bombers a sniff last week.
The Swannies will have too much firepower for the Cats at the ‘G this week and led by Coleman Medalist Buddy Franklin, who booted four last week, I can see them continuing on their great run.
Remember, this is the team that was 0-6 at the start of the season!
Geelong was poor last week against Richmond and I can’t see them producing a big enough turnaround to win here. As a result, I think they bow out of the semis in straight sets this year.
My value bet for the game is for Garry Rohan to boot most goals but I am confident enough to have a decent crack at Sydney at the shorts ($1.37 @ Luxbet).
Recommended Bet: SYDNEY
The Lock: PATRICK DANGERFIELD 30+ DISPOSALS
Value Play: GARRY ROHAN MOST GOALS
Value Play: JOSH KENNEDY 30+ DISPOSALS
The Eagles did the job for us last week and I think they will do it again in Week 2!
West Coast beat Port in extra time last week and that will have given them a fair bit of confidence coming into this game against a Giants side that has had its problems with injury.
The Giants will be without star goalkicker Jeremy Cameron along with Shane Mumford and those are two classy blokes who they will sorely miss. Going into an elimination game you need guys like that to guide the team and I think that might hurt the home side.
The Eagles have nothing to lose and I think their momentum, with wins over the two Adelaide sides in the past fortnight, may just carry them to a Preliminary Final.
I am more than happy to take the $3.10 on offer at bet365 about it happening!
Josh Kennedy has been my banker for the year when it comes to scoring most goals and I am again putting my money behind him in this match, while I am tipping Josh Kelly to have a big game for the Giants. Back him to rack up 20+ disposals and boot two goals.
Recommended Bet: WEST COAST
