The Crows or Giants will take a huge step towards a premiership with a win.
Adelaide and Greater Western Sydney get the AFL finals series up and running with a mouthwatering clash at the Adelaide Oval.
The winner will secure the week off and then a home Preliminary Final in what will be a huge step towards securing a berth in the Grand Final.
Both sides have looked magnificent at times this season but did not finish the season as strongly as they would have liked.
Adelaide come into this match having lost their past two games with GWS thumped at the hands of Geelong and dropping out of the top two as a result.
Statistically the Crows look to have a mortgage on this game. They have won seven of their eight clashes against the Giants including an emphatic Round 1 victory.
The Crows belted the Giants by 56 points with Eddie Betts slotting an equal game high four goals and GWS has especially struggled at the Adelaide Oval where they have won just one match in five attempts.
The Crows midfield ran riot in that fixture with defensive midfielder Rory Laird collecting a game high 40 touches.
Both these teams have been incredibly high scoring this season but the game will be a high pressure contest and as a result it may produce a lower scoring game.
The Crows have been the benchmark all season but it is a major concern they have played their worst patch of the season at the end and as a result they do look to be way under the odds against a Giants side who can trouble them for speed.
We are happy to have something on the Giants winning ($2.75 @ Ladbrokes) and a bigger bet on them at the line.
Looking longer term Adelaide is outright premiership favourite with all bookmakers and top odds at Crownbet who have the Crows at $3.45.
If you anticipate the Giants will go onto win their first premiership they are top odds of $6 at TAB.
Rory Laird collected a game high 40 disposals when these teams met last and looks a good bet to collect 30 or more.
