AFL Live Adelaide Crows vs Sydney Swans Streaming Free 2017 Regular Seasons Round 22 match will be kick off at Adelaide Oval, North Adelaide, South Australia, Australia, Friday 18 August 2017 online, 19:50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Adelaide have been posted at the odds of $1.60 in the head to head betting with CrownBet, while Sydney are at $2.35 in what shapes as a fascinating contest to open the round.
The Crows have already secured the double chance but can seal the minor premiership with a win at home, while Sydney could end up anywhere between fourth and sixth at the end of the round, depending on the result on Friday.
After opening up the season 0-6, the Swans have since won 12 of their past 14 games, with their only losses in that time period coming at the hands of Hawthorn.
John Longmire’s side come off a 104-point win over Fremantle at the SCG and have rocketed into third favouritism for the flag at $5, behind the Crows ($3.25) and GWS ($3.75).
A number of their star players are in excellent form, including Luke Parker, Daniel Hannebery and Isaac Heeney, while Lance Franklin comes off a four-goal haul against the Dockers.
However, that quartet will need to be at their best if they are to trouble the home side. With the exception of a couple of off nights during the year where they lost to Melbourne and Hawthorn, the Crows have made a habit of steamrolling their opposition at the Adelaide Oval in 2017. Their nine wins at the venue have come at an average margin of 59 points.
The Crows lead the competition for points scored and have kicked a staggering 300 points more than their nearest rival, while they sit in the top two of the competition in a stack of other measures, including contested possessions, contested marks, hitouts and clearances.
Taylor Walker, Eddie Betts and Josh Jenkins are in the top 14 for goals scored, while Matt Crouch and Rory Laird are among a number of players that have found plenty of the footy this year.
Adelaide will monitor Taylor Walker and Rory Sloane at training after the pair pulled up with respective issues out of the Essendon win. Sydney have few injury concerns with Josh Kennedy the only major name missing at the moment. The skipper will have a fitness test during the week and is expected to return.
