Both sides come off victories in Round 12. Gold Coast accounted for Hawthorn for the second time this year, travelling to the MCG and knocking over the Hawks by 16 points, while Carlton enjoyed one of their best wins in recent memory.
The Blues caused one of the upsets of the season, holding on in a thriller to defeat GWS by one point at Etihad Stadium. That was their fourth win of the season, one shy of Gold Coast’s tally of five. With the logjam for spots inside the top eight, the Suns are just one game behind 5th played Port Adelaide.
The Queensland based side have been posted as $1.37 favourite’s in the head to head betting with CrownBet and have some good form at Metricon Stadium this season, winning three of their past four at the venue.
A compelling statistic for this match up is Carlton’s interstate form. They have gone down by big margins to Port Adelaide and Fremantle in their two trips outside of Victoria this season and have won just one of their past 18 interstate games.
Their coach, Brendan Bolton, will be looking for a way for his side to repeat their heroics from last week. Look for Sam Docherty, Bryce Gibbs and Marc Murphy to have an influence in the middle, as well as Matthew Kreuzer in the ruck. Kruezer was a match winner against the Giants last weekend and takes on Jarrod Witts.
The Blues will need big games from that quartet, while they will also need to find a way to contain Gary Ablett and Tom Lynch. Ablett comes off a 37-possession display against the Hawks, while Lynch booted seven goals against the Blues the last time the two sides met.
Gold Coast should find plenty of the footy and they are likely to get on top at the clearances. They rank 8th for clearances and 1st for disposals and uncontested possessions, while Carlton are in the bottom three of the competition in these categories.
However, the Blues are generally very good defensively, while they are also efficient in attack. If they make the most of their opportunities they can push the Suns.
