GOLD COAST SUNS VS CARLTON BLUES

SATURDAY APRIL 10, 7.25 PM, METRICON STADIUM, GOLD COAST

The Suns head home to the Gold Coast, ready to host the Blues, after the Covid-19 scare in Queensland, threatened to move more matches out of the sunshine state than it did.  Both these teams are mid-lower ladder predictions for this season, with plenty of potential, as the Suns are $67 to win the flag, while Carlton is $34, but this will be an entertaining affair, nonetheless.  Gold Coast toiled hard but came up with a tight loss against the Crows in Adelaide last weekend, which leaves them with a 1-2 record, just outside of the 8.  Carlton are also 1-2, after recording a strong 45-point win against Fremantle in Melbourne last weekend, and are eyeing off a top 8 position here, if they can topple the Suns.  A hot day will have cooled down sufficiently to provide near enough to ideal conditions for these players, with game-time temperatures of about 23 and no wind or rain.

Gold Coast have one new casualty ward addition, as Jarrod Witts is unavailable due to injury, and have added Caleb Graham to their bench to cover his loss.  They have also omitted Will Brodie, but will probably rename him as a medical emergency sub in the hours before the game.  Carlton have lost two of their experienced recruits from the last game, as Oscar McDonald and Zac Williams are out hurt, which means they have recalled Will Setterfield to the setup, and he will be utilized from the bench, in his 37th AFL game, since 2017.

Carlton defended their way to victory against Gold Coast last time around, in the shortened games of 2020, as they restricted the Suns to just 4 goals, ultimately winning by 33 points.  The Suns did come away with a 2-point victory in the first game between these clubs in 2019, but were defeated in the corresponding fixture some few months later, as Carlton won by 24.  Carlton are every so slight favourites to win this game, at $1.85, but are only tipped to win by 2 points in the betting margin markets, while the Suns at home are $1.97, meaning it is really a toss of the coin job.

PREDICTION: Gold Coast at home by a goal or two, they have been better than 1-2 in the first few weeks.

BETTING TIP: $2.45 provides value for the Suns to win at home by 1-39.
