West Coast are going from bad to worse.
West Coast’s history making – in a bad sense – season is set to continue when they take on the Bulldogs at home.
As we covered last week, the Eagles percentage of 51.5% is historically awful. While their side still has players with big names and reputations, they are not playing up to them.
The Dogs are generally a reliable proposition when being asked to cover a big number. In the last three years when favoured by five goals or more, they have covered 83% of the time.
While Luke Beveridge’s men were struggling offensively to start the season, they have found their stride of late, scoring 99 or more in three of the last four weeks.
Against an Eagles team that has conceded more than 100 points in the last 6 weeks, they should gain even more confidence.
The Dogs will win in a breeze.

Same Game Multi
Libba has seen more midfield minutes and should get plenty of touches against an Eagles side that concedes at a high rate. Macrae is simply a ball winning machine. The Dogs should have plenty of goals to go around so backing a couple of their lesser forwards for multiples looks a sound strategy.
The Eagles are conceding goals at historic rate so there is a good chance that Naughton, the Dogs star forward, gets right among them.
