West Coast vs Geelong Betting Tips

Optus Stadium, Saturday 18th June 4:35pm (AEST)

West Coast

Injuries: Oscar Allen (Foot), Tom Cole (Ankle), Luke Edwards (Groin), Tom Joyce (Ankle), Zac Langdon (Ankle), Nic Naitanui (Knee), Xavier O’Neill (Knee), Zane Trew (Knee)

The Eagles have had the worst luck of any team with injuries this season. They continue to be without superstar Nic Naitanui who’s nursing a knee injury, as well as four or five others that could be in their best team.

There’s no dancing around it, 2022 has been a horrible year for the Eagles on all fronts. Their only win to date came against the Magpies back in Round 4, and that was one of only three matches where they haven’t conceded over 100 points this season. The Eagles enter this clash in last spot on the ladder and are in a fight with the Kangaroos for the Wooden Spoon. 

Geelong

Injuries: Jack Henry (Foot), Jon Ceglar (Foot), Patrick Dangerfield (Calf), Max Holmes (Ankle), Flynn Kroeger (Wrist), Brandan Parfitt (Hand), Esava Ratugolea (Ankle), Sam Simpson (Concussion)

The Cats have a growing injury list which is a bit of a concern. Patrick Dangerfield, Brandan Parfitt, Jack Henry, Max Holmes and Esava Ratugolea are all best 22 players who are unavailable this weekend for different reasons.

Geelong have had a fairly productive and consistent campaign to date enter this round on a three-match win streak. They’re one of only three teams that haven’t lost two matches in a row this season and that’s one of the reasons why they were sitting in fourth spot on the ladder coming into this weekend. The Cats were impressive in their win over the Dogs last weekend and have the chance to make it four wins on the spin when they travel to Perth.

Match Prediction

The Eagles enter this match on an equal club-record eight-match losing streak and seven of those losses have been by 50+ points, which shows you where they’re at right now. They also come up against an opponent who they’ve lost to by 58+ points twice in their last four meetings, which spells disaster in my book. The Eagles may have a couple of key players back this weekend, but I still can’t see them putting up much of a fight against the Cats on this occasion.

Prop Bets

Tyson Stengle is having a fantastic campaign for the Cats and is hitting the scoreboard with regularity. He’s jagged 18 goals from his last eight matches and is good value for multiple goals again here.

Tyson Stengle 2+ Goals ($1.67 Ladbrokes)

Jeremy Cameron is enjoying a terrific season at the Cattery and is in prolific goalkicking form. He’s kicked 13 goals in his last three matches and will be licking his lips at the prospect of taking on an Eagles outfit that has given up 105+ points in seven of their last eight matches.

Jeremy Cameron 3+ Goals ($1.80 Ladbrokes)

Mark O’Connor is usually given a tagging role but I suspect he will be given a bit more freedom this weekend. He’s averaging a tick under 14 disposals a game this season and should be able to get a couple more than usual against the Eagles.

Mark O’Connor 15+ Disposals ($2.20 Ladbrokes)
