AFL Tips – GWS Giants v Gold Coast – Round 3 2022

The Suns upset the Giants last year and a repeat looks on the cards.

Best Bet

Gold Coast +8.5 ($1.90)

It’s hard to overstate the importance of Toby Greene missing for the Giants, and it has a huge effect on their performance relative to the line.

Since the start of 2019 Toby has missed 17 games, and the Giants have covered the line in only six of them. Greene’s skill, leadership and scoreboard impact simply cannot be replaced.

GWS have problems at both ends now with Phil Davis going down with a severe hamstring injury. Throw in injuries to Jacob Hopper and Daniel Lloyd and the Giants have – yet again – one of the longest injury lists in the league.

Gold Coast on the other hand have made an encouraging start to 2022, pushing Melbourne most of the way last week after cleaning up an injury riddled West Coast in Round 1.

The Suns upset the Giants last year when playing in Ballarat, and it would be no surprise if this game went down to the wire once again.

With the points, the Gold Coast looks the play.

Same Game Multi

Gold Coast +8.5 / Under 150.5 / Tom Green 25+ Disposals / Harry Himmelberg & Levi Casboult 1+ Goal ($8.50)

Being in Sydney there is a good chance of some rain and neither team is hitting the scoreboard with gusto at present so the under is well and truly in play. Tom Green has topped 30 in both games this season while Himmelberg and Casboult have multiple goals in both games this season.

Value Bet

Levi Casboult 3+ Goals ($6.50)

Big Levi has started the season well with 2 goals against both the Eagles and Giants. He should find opportunities against a Giants side that allowed 7 goals to the Richmond key forwards last week and has lost its best defensive player, Phil Davis.
