Australian Football League Live Adelaide Crows vs Western Bulldogs Live Stream Free, AFL 2017 Seasons Week 16. Adelaide Crows vs Western Bulldogs match will be kickoff at Adelaide Oval, North Adelaide, South Australia, Australia, Friday 07 July 2017 online, 19:50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Crows sit in 2nd place on the ladder and head in as favourite’s, while last year’s premiers, the Bulldogs, are in 10th and in real danger of becoming the first side since Hawthorn in 2009 to miss the eight after claiming the flag the year before.
First bounce is at 7.50PM AEST and the action can be seen on Channel 7 and Fox Footy. AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
Adelaide return to the Adelaide Oval for the first time since suffering a shock defeat to Hawthorn in Round 14. Last weekend, the Crows bounced back by grinding out a 12 point win against Carlton at the MCG.
Meanwhile, the Bulldogs season went from bad to worse when they were rolled by the West Coast Eagles to the tune of seven points. Last years premiers have now lost five of their past seven and appear to be a shadow of the side that claimed the silverware last year.
They have been posted as $3.75 outsiders in the head to head betting with CrownBet and a win may just appear to beyond them at this stage. The Dogs were smashed in the midfield last weekend, while a host of big name players, including Jake Stringer, Jason Johannisen and Liam Picken all produced quiet games.
Luke Beveridge will need to conjure a plan to turn things around in the middle against a Crows outfit that rank 1st in the competition for contested possessions and 3rd for clearances. The Bulldogs are 5th and 16th in these measures.
Look for the Crouch brothers to get on top in the middle, as well as Rory Sloane, who spent the majority of last week’s game at half-forward. If the home side gets on top in the middle, their forwards should capitalise up forward.
The Crows rank No.1 for points scored, while the Dogs are languishing in 15th spot in this measure and seem to lack the firepower to kick a winning score. They have booted over 100 points just once in the past 10 weeks.
While the Crows forwards have been well held in the past few weeks, they should still have enough options. Eddie Betts and Taylor Walker sit in the top seven for goals scored this season, while Josh Jenkins can also trouble the Dogs with his height.
