Expect plenty of goals at Optus Stadium on Sunday.
West Coast are always a great overs play at home and even more so against a Carlton team with plenty of points in them.
In 55 West Coast games at Optus, 34 have gone over the total, including 14 of 21 played during daytime. Five of their last six games have gone over too.
After their abysmal start to the year, the troops have arrived back for West Coast in recent weeks and the scoring has followed. They’ve kicked their two highest scores of the year (107 and 93 points) in their last two games.
Carlton games have leaned over all year too with 9 of 15 clearing the mark.
This is a very moderate total. Of 135 games played this year, 85 games have had higher totals.
There is a slight risk of a shower on Sunday in Perth but nothing that should impact scoring much on a good surface.

Same Game Multi
Matthew Kennedy has had 20+ touches in 12 of 13 games this year while Jack Redden has in 14 of 15.
Jamie Cripps has kicked a goal in seven straight games. Willie Rioli has in three straight.
Jamie Cripps has been in fine form, bagging three goals in each of his last two games. In what should be a high-scoring contest against a Carlton team still missing a raft of top line defenders, he should get plenty of opportunities for more snags.
