Can the Suns, with their best team in for many weeks, take it up to the Swans?
The Suns are copping thumping after thumping in recent times. Down on personnel and confidence, they have also played a string of top eight sides, including West Coast, Adelaide and Geelong, along with rising teams like Melbourne and Port.
After wins against cellar-dwellers Brisbane and Essendon, Sydney has bounced back from a shock loss to Richmond in professional style, toppling Hawthorn and North to cement themselves as the best credentialed outfit in the race to the flag.
Sydney is yet to lose to Gold Coast, holding a 6-0 record, with a lowest winning marginof 35 points. Four of these wins have been at Metricon Stadium.
Gold Coast have lost their last five matches by an average of 87 points and haven’t covered the spread in their last seven games. The Suns have had eight games go the over in total match points this year, the highest of any side.
The Swans have started favourite in nine matches this year, winning seven of them. They have covered the spread in three of their last four. Since 2012, when travelling interstate to play a non-Victorian club, Sydney are +9% POT and 62% ATS.
Sydney have been the most impressive of any side over the last 4-6 weeks, while Gold Coast have clearly been the worst.
The Swans should win the midfield battle, with first use thanks to All-Australian-in-waiting Kurt Tippett, and much more depth to counter the Ablett-led Suns. Tom Lynch will prove a handful for Heath Grundy, but the cupboard is bare after that, and the Sydney forwards look much more dangerous.
This should be one way traffic, despite the prospect of a stronger Suns team and the trickle of money for them.
