May 21st 2022, 10:28pm, By: Josh Nevett

GWS vs West Coast Betting Tips

Its GWS’ turn to beat up on the Eagles this week, however the last thing the Giants should be doing is getting complacent.

A new coach poses new questions and several players from the home team will be out to prove themselves, while the Eagles look to claw back some credibility heading into the halfway mark of the season.

GWS vs West Coast Betting Tips

Giants Stadium, Sunday 22nd May, 2.10pm (AEST)


Injuries: Conor Stone (out), Finn Callaghan (out), Lachie Whitfield (out), Jack Buckley, Brent Daniels, Phil Davis, Jacob Hopper, Daniel Lloyd

GWS have lost a few players to injury this week, headlined by running utility Lachie Whitfield. Their depth will be tested this week.

It’s been a torrid season so far for the Giants, who have lost four of their last five matches. The outcome has been the exit of Leon Cameron as Senior coach, who has made way for Mark McVeigh temporarily. As such, it’s likely we will see some shuffling of the deck this week, with players moving positions and perhaps a slightly tinkered game plan. To GWS’ advantage is the fact that they are playing West Coast, so even a poor performance will likely net a win. 

West Coast

Injuries: Luke Foley (out), Oscar Allen, Campbell Chesser, Tom Cole, Luke Edwards, Shannon Hurn, Tom Joyce, Josh Kennedy, Zac Langdon, Nic Naitanui, Xavier O’Neill, Jack Petruccelle, Willie Rioli, Liam Ryan, Dom Sheed,

West Coast’s monstrous injury list remains and shows no signs of getting shorter very quickly. The Eagles are missing just about all of their first-choice forward line, and several key players across the park.

Many thought that last week’s match against the Demons would see the Eagles reach new lows, however to their credit the makeshift side put up plenty of fight and weren’t the witches hats they been in previous weeks. Andrew Gaff and Luke Shuey return this week, easing the burden on some of the young midfielders who have had too much to do. It is hard to see West Coast winning a game for a significant period of time though.

Match Prediction

The result of this game seems a given, but to what extent GWS dominate is an interesting question. 

I see the Giants making a statement under their new coach, and they have traditionally beaten up on the cellar dwellers. 

However, there hasn’t been much to like from the orange side of Sydney so far this year, so maybe West Coast can make a game of it.

Regardless, I’m taking the Giants at the line.

Prop Bets

Kelly has only kicked four goals this year however he has a history of hitting the scoreboard and should get involved in attack if GWS get on top. There isn’t much value in GWS goalscorer markets, so Kelly is a good option.

Coniglio is slated for a move back into the midfield this week, where he managed disposal counts of 32, 23 and 23 in the opening weeks of the season.
