AFL Tips – GWS Giants v West Coast – Round 10 2022

The Giants should cover in this clash of key election battlegrounds

Best Bet

GWS -38.5

A bad football team is sometimes like a government that has been in office for too long. Made up of players whose best is behind them. Full of infighting. In need of new blood. Out of ideas.

If the West Coast Eagles were on the ballot on Saturday they would be voted out in a landslide.

The prime statistical indicator of the West Coast football economy – percentage – is a mere 49.9%. It’s banana republic stuff, alongside failed states like Fitzroy 1996 and Melbourne 2013.

While the Eagles won’t be up for election any time soon, the football world will judge them in another way – on the scoreboard against the GWS Giants.

The Giants have already knifed their leader this season, Leon Cameron, with Mark McVeigh taking the reigns as coach this week. A bounce in the numbers is to be expected as a result – even Julia’s polls went up after getting rid of Kevin.

McVeigh has swung the axe at selection with six changes. The Giants VFL team has been in excellent form so it makes sense that their ranks have something to offer at this level.

Back the Giants to cover the line against a discredited and out of touch Eagles line up.

Same Game Multi

GWS -38.5, J. Kelly 30+ Disposals, H. Himmelberg 2+ Goals

Kelly has been in brilliant form of late and has been averaging 33.5 disposals since round 5. Himmelberg is super accurate and will get plenty of chances against an awful Eagles lineup.

Value Bet

Under 40.5
WCE Full Time Alternate Total Points

The Eagles struggle to score in perfect conditions so with some rain around it is entirely possible they fail to top 40 for the third time this season.
