The footy marathon roles on for rounds 10 & 11. Twenty consecutive days of footy is great for fans but does complicate things for our previews. The odds only become available a few days before the games so it does not give me a lot of options to choose from. Therefore – we will only bet into one game again this week.
GWS are starting to build into their season . They lost Toby Greene early on Friday night but still managed to account for the Gold Coast by 31 points. They are looking for a third win in a row.
Essendon were well beaten by the Lions last week making it two 40 + loses from their past three games. They will be looking for an improved performance against the Giants.
With a deluge of rain predicted for Friday night on the Gold Coast a medium bet on the under 103.5 Total Match points makes sense to me.
While that may seem low on face value these teams are not high scoring – and assuming the rain arrives I don’t think they will get close to the 100 point mark.
The game will become one of defence and territory with goals hard to come by.
