Australian Football League Live Adelaide Crows vs Gold Coast Suns Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Seasons Week 06 AFL Stream. Adelaide Crows vs Gold Coast Suns match will be kickoff at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide, SA, Australia, Saturday 28 April 2018 online, 19:40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Adelaide head in as firm favourites for this and have been installed as the $1.08 favourites with CrownBet in the head to head betting.
The Crows come off an excellent 10 point win over Sydney at the SCG and return to their home ground where they have some excellent form over the past couple of years, winning 12 from 15.
Despite their huge underdog status, the Gold Coast Suns have won the same amount of games as the Crows this year and sit below their opposition on the ladder due to an inferior percentage.
They scraped through with a five point win against Brisbane last weekend and their two losses have come at Perth Stadium this year, losing to the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle.
Touk Miller, David Swallow and the former Crow, Jarryd Lyons, loom as key players for the Suns. The latter two feature in the competition’s leading ball winners, while Miller was their best in the win over the Lions. Tom Lynch is another and has booted 14 goals this season.
At the other end of the ground, Taylor Walker and Josh Jenkins will look to continue their good form. That duo combined for seven goals last weekend and feature in the top 12 for goals scored. Rory Laird and Paul Seedsman are other important players and have been solid for the Crows in the absence of some key players in the middle of the ground.
Adelaide are unlikely to make too many changes after their big win last weekend but Kyle Hartigan will miss with a hamstring injury. Rory Sloane is a possible inclusion. Eddie Betts is still another week away.
Gold Coast lose Darcy MacPherson. Aaron Hall was dropped to the NEAFL last week but performed well and is expected to come back in.
Adelaide have never lost to the Gold Coast, taking out all 10 encounters between the two sides. Those wins have come at a massive average margin of 57 points. The closest the Suns have been to Adelaide was a 28 point margin in 2013.
Two of those clashes have been held at the Adelaide Oval. Last year the action was at the Gold Coast and it was the Crows by 67.
This is a slightly hard one to assess, given Adelaide’s injuries as well as their recent display at the Adelaide Oval when they went down to Collingwood. However, history may be a major pointer to this one and the Suns have generally been ordinary on the road in recent times.
