West Coast Eagles vs Gold Coast Suns
AFL: 8.10 PM AEST
April 14, 2018
What a difference one man can make to a team! Nic Nat is the most exciting player going around and his impact around the contest is unparalleled. Add in the sublime skills of Shuey, Gaff, Sheed, Yeo, McGovern, Hurn, LeCras and young excitement machine Liam Ryan and you have a team primed to march towards September.
So far this season Stuart Dew is coach of the year. The Suns have been awesome and add in the fact that they don’t even have a home ground right now, they are doing really well. Jarryd Lyons has impressed through the midfield and the spine of Thompson, Day and Lynch have coped well in the absence of Gary Ablett.
The Eagles are ranked #1 for hit-outs per game and 2nd for Inside 50’s per game. Jarrod Witts is going to have his work cut out for him against the Monster Nic Nat. Whilst the Suns are dominating many statistics, Ranked #1 for Kicks and #1for Tackles per game.
The Eagles are big favourites as it is at their home ground but we’re not sure they should be favored at such discounted odds.
This will be the 2nd week in a row that the Suns play at Optus Stadium due to the Commonwealth Games. They are now familiar with the ground and will feel more confident in their surroundings. We really feel the odds are too favoured towards the Eagles here and believe it might be a lot closer than others think. Fremantle kicked away last weekend and we’re confident they won’t allow the Eagles to do the same this weekend.
