AFL ROUND 8

GWS GIANTS VS ESSENDON BOMBERS

SATURDAY MAY 8, 2.10 PM, GIANTS STADIUM, SYDNEY

Sydney’s west have a treat of games on Saturday as the AFL fixture between the Giants and Essendon get in early, with an NRL game to follow, giving fans from the west of Sydney a chance to watch their team.  The Giants are hitting their straps and performing well lately, they smashed the Crows by 67 last weekend, and appear to be on an upward spiral, they are currently 3-4 and looking to bash their way into the 8.  Essendon are battling, they lost against rivals Carlton by 16 last weekend, and are now 2-5, 15th, and desperately in need of a win, but will find that hard to come by on this road trip.  Warm ideal conditions await in Sydney for this afternoon affair, that should attract a decent crowd, and give players every opportunity to showcase their elite skills.

Zach Merrett celebrates his 150th AFL game and will be looking to aid Essendon in a winning effort, as they are desperate and need all the motivators there can be, to get themselves into this game.  Francis returns for the Bombers in a defensive role, while they welcome back Phillips who starts at ruck, meaning Zaharakis and Guelfi as well as Bryan all missed out on selection this weekend.  Greater Western have made numerous forced changes as Reid, Buntine, Hogan and Daniels are all out injured, they have Lloyd returning in the forward pocket, Bruhn also across half forward and Sproule on the bench.

The last two games between these rivals, and they are rivals, since the formation of the Giants, when Sheedy left Essendon, have been brutally close, as the Giants won by 4 in 2020, but lost by 6 in 2019, after a lopsided 72-point win to the Giants in March earlier in 2019.  The Giants have surged in the title market in recent weeks, and are back to being fringe contenders at $34 but that will be a bargain for bettors if this form continues, whereas the Bombers have bombed out they are $81.  3 goals or so is the predicted handicap margin for the Giants to win by as they are $1.40, and the Bombers are at $3.

PREDICTION:  GWS by 20+.

BETTING TIP: Double your coin by betting the Giants by 1-39.
