Everything about this game screams over.
Since Mark McVeigh took over as Giants coach, GWS have been one of the highest scoring teams in the league. Yes, they had the life squeezed out of them by Port Adelaide last week, but against the freewheeling Lions the points should flow.
Last week the Lions were faced with the highest total of the year in the game against Essendon. There were only 30 points kicked in the first quarter, so punters were entitled to be tearing up their tickets. However, in the last three quarters 160 points were scored and the number was cleared.
Brisbane and GWS played only seven weeks ago and the score was 110-96, in Brisbane’s favour. Yes, that was in the Brisbane sunshine, but while it will be cold in Canberra on Saturday the rain is expected to stay away. The over is 9-2 in the Lions last 11 away games, and 6-0 in their last six.
These teams have a long track record of high scoring clashes, with five of their last six games going over the total. The last two have gone over 190.

Jesse Hogan has been back to his brilliant best in 2022 and can record another bag against a Lions side that is vulnerable against the best key forwards, even with Harris Andrews back. Charlie Cameron was quiet last week but should bounce back, as will Joe Daniher who won’t have to play on the injured Phil Davis.
This one could easily crack the double ton as they did just seven weeks ago.
