AFL Live Carlton Blues vs GWS Giants Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 07 Match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Saturday 16 May 2015 online, 16.40pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Carlton Blues are looking to get off the back pages for the right reasons and have an opportunity against the Giants. Though GWS are coming off arguably their biggest ever win and need to beat the poor sides to continue a maiden finals’ push.
Don’t expect too many changes from the victorious Giants side that took care of business against Hawthorn. Josh Kelly and Curtly Hampton have performed well enough in the NEAFL to warrant a return though. For the Blues, Michael Jamison, Troy Menzel, Kade Simpson, Andrew Carrazzo and Chris Yarran (suspension) are likely to be available for selection. Matthew Kreuzer could be a bolter after just one game in the VFL too.
The hapless Blues are second last on the ladder with a solitary win over St Kilda. They have experienced two heavy defeats (69 points v West Coast and 75-points v Collingwood) this season. They rank 15th in points scored whilst conceding the second most points per game this season (104.33). In contrast, the Giants are 6th on the ladder with four wins and two losses. They rank sixth in points per game and 5th in disposals per game today.
The Blues 2-1 (1-2 against the line) vs GWS. Carlton is 20-24 (21-23 against the line) at Etihad Stadium since 2010. The Blues are 5-3 (6-2 against the line) at the venue in 2014-15. The Giants are 2-6 (3-5 against the line) at Eithad Stadium with their wins coming in round 23, 2014 (vs Bulldogs) and round 1, 2015 (vs St Kilda). GWS is 5-9 (7-7 against the line) when on the road in 2014-15. The Giants are 4-1 head-to-head (3-2 against the line) when starting as favourite in their short history.
For the fifth time this season (for four winning results), we’re very keen on betting up on the Giants. This line simply looks too small, regardless of who Carlton bring back into their line-up. The only worry for GWS is a potential for a let-down following their massive upset over Hawthorn. That was the case in 2014 when they upset Sydney before losing to St Kilda. A year on, they’re stronger, fitter and better whilst Carlton is probably easier to beat then St Kilda last year.
