AFL Live Western Bulldogs vs GWS Giants Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 09 Match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Saturday 30 May 2015 online, 16.35pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The surging GWS Giants are looking for their first ever four-game winning streak whilst the Dogs are aiming to get back on the winners list and entrench themselves in the finals race.
The Giants are likely to make only one change to their winning line-up with Phil Davis suspended. Aiden Corr is likely to step up in his absence. For the Bulldogs, Brett Goddes (arm) will miss whilst Tom Boyd and Ayce Cordy’s positions are in jeopardy. Jack Macrae, Nathan Hrovat, Tom Campbell, Lukas Webb, Toby Mclean and Jack Redpath have all put their up for selection in the VFL.
The Bulldogs are 4-4 through the first eight games despite losing their last three games by 7, 13 and 39 points. They rank 11th in points scored and 8th for most points conceded this season. The Giants are fourth on the ladder with a 6-2 record having won three games in a row for the first time in their history. They have scored the fourth most amount of points whilst rank 11th for least amount of points conceded.
The Bulldogs have won all three of their four matches against the Giants (1- against the line). The Giants are 3-6 (4-5 against the line) at Eithad Stadium with their wins coming in round 23, 2014 (vs Bulldogs) and round 1, 2015 (vs St Kilda) and round 7 against Carlton. GWS is 6-9 (8-7 against the line) when on the road in 2014-15. The Bulldogs are 12-20 (but 18-14 against the line) at Etihad Stadium since the start of 2013. The Giants are 6-1 head-to-head (5-2 against the line) when starting as favourite in their short history. Seven games in round 8 went over the total points line. The Giants have only covered the line in four consecutive games just twice in their short history. The Wolf has tipped GWS in six consecutive games, collecting in five of them.
It’s full steam ahead on the GWS train. I’ve tipped them in every game since round three have collected on them in five of those six games. They are one of them form teams of the competition and have a clear advantage in the midfield and up forward. The Dogs struggled to score against Melbourne and GWS have a superior defence. Once again, the GWS line looks extremely tasty.
