AFL Live GWS Giants vs Adelaide Crows Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 08 Match will be kick off at Spotless Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park, New South Wales, Australia Saturday 23 May 2015 online, 14.10pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The battle for the Game Of Thrones fans as the Crows head over the wall to face GWS. Both have the same record (5-2) and have won two in a row going into what shapes as a very tight contest.
The Crows are missing Rory Smith, Richard Douglas, Matt Jaensch Brad Crouch, Andy Otten and Brodie Smith from their best 22. Whilst Cam Ellis-Yolmen and Josh Jenkins could be ready to return. With no new injury concerns, the Giants might not make any changes. They have Josh Kelly, Curtly Hampton, Jack Steele and Jed Lamb continuing to impress in the NEAFL.
The Giants are 5th on the ladder but have the same record as second (5-2) having beaten Gold Coast, Hawthorn and Carlton in the past month with a terrible loss to West Coast in there too. They rank fourth for points scored and 8th for least points conceded this season. The Crows are 4th on the ladder having split their last four, 2-2. Losing to the Bulldogs and Port and then beating the lowly Gold Coast and St Kilda. They rank third in points scored and 7th for least amount of points allowed in 2015.
The Crows and Giants have five times with Adelaide winning all five – by an average of 87-points. GWS have covered the line twice against the Crows. The Giants have a 6-16 (14-8 against the line) record at Spotless Stadium. Adelaide is 12-11 (13-10 against the line) when playing away from Adelaide in the last three seasons. The Giants are 5-1 head-to-head (4-2 against the line) when starting as favourite in their short history. Four of their match-ups have totalled over 209 points. Seven games in round 7 went over the total points line.
Both teams have not really beaten much this season with Adelaide going 1-1 against the current top eight whilst GWS is 1-2 this season. The Wolf has had great success with the Giants this year (making them the best bet last weekend) and sees no reason to change today. They go well at home, have one of the healthiest lists in the AFL, will not be afraid to run and carry and use their foot skills to break through Adelaide’s full ground press. Whilst James Stewart, Jeremy Cameron and Cam McCarthy will cause headaches for Adelaide’s under-sized key defenders.
