Australian Football League Live West Coast Eagles vs Gold Coast Suns Stream AFL 2015 Seasons Week 07 math will be kick off at Domain Stadium, Perth, Western Australia, Australia Saturday 16 May 2015 online, 19.40pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Gold Coast Suns are severely under-strength and face a West Coast side that has no trouble scoring and is second on the ladder.
The Suns are without key players – Ablett, Day, Lynch, Saad, Thompson, O’Meara, May, Tape and Swallow whilst the Eagles are missing Mitch Brown, Jack Darling, Xavier Ellis, Eric Mackenzie, Matt Rosa and Scott Selwood.
The Suns are 16th on the ladder with just one win (against the hapless Lions). They rank 16th in points conceded and 9th in points scored this season. The Eagles are the second highest scoring team in the league whilst have the fourth best defence to go along with their 4-2 record. They’ve beaten Carlton, Brisbane, GWS and Port Adelaide this season.
West Coast have won all five games (3-2 against the line) against Gold Coast by an average of 43-points. West Coast forward Josh Kennedy has kicked 23 goals in four matches against the Suns. The last four Eagles-Suns games totalled over 202 points. The Suns are 2-14 (4-12 against the line) without Gary Ablett in the side. The Suns have never won at Patersons Stadium in six (2-4 against the line) attempts. The Eagles are 8-6 both head-to-head and against the line at home in 2014-15. Four of their five match-ups have totalled over 202-points.
Check the weather before piling into this one as there is plenty of rain predicted in Perth this weekend. If it was dry, the Eagles would do a serious number on the Suns whilst there would also be plenty of points. But with rain, the Suns come right into this and if it’s very rain-affected then the -39.5 looks far too big. Going with Eagles 1-39 but if it’s dry, the Eagles will kill them.
