West Coast versus Collingwood – Friday night Perth
We have a BLOCKBUSTER for our AFL Betting tips Friday night game as the West Coast Eagles host Collingwood.
This clash shapes as a possible decider between these two on a AFL Finals top two position. The Eagles are on a three game winning run and they have not looked back after being humiliated by the Swans before their mid season break. They simply pulverising the Dockers last week.
Collingwood are on a two game losing streak and haven’t played a good game of footy since probably Queens Birthday (against a low side Melbourne). They need to rediscover their mojo or their season could very quickly slip away. After this they travel to GWS Giants stadium so it could be the deadly double or it could be exactly what they need to awaken from their slumber and get into gear.
The Eagles really have scoring potency back and they have averaged 109.5 points and two of those games have been atrocious wet weather conditions. This is a big concern for Collingwood, how to counter the Eagles scoring.
The most impressive aspect about Collingwood last year was the team cohesion where they covered for each other and were in sync. This is lost at the moment and maybe a road trip to get back in the groove is what they need. It is a tough assignment in the West but shapes as the game of the year with West Coast off the peak win.
AFL Betting Tips – the numbers…
We get the really good comparison here with these two playing four times in fifteen months. This includes this year a West Coast 98-76 win at the MCG and of course includes 2 finals games in 2018. One of those the epic 79-74 Grand Final win. West Coast has won the last four head to head and interesting only one of those has been in Perth, the other three at the G. The games are generally tight with one 35 pt margin but the other four recent games average margin 13 points per game.
It is hard to see a blowout here. Total average game score last five head to head is 166 points per game and in a tight band of 153-178 points. Both teams rank high points for and against, in fact both are in the top five of both areas. Last five weeks across the AFL, West Coast are 4-1 and Collingwood are 3-2 including last two are losses. West Coast has won 6 games at home in 2019 whilst Collingwood have won 2 on the road. A Collingwood loss here does put them in a precarious position. West Coast comes off the massive peak in the Derby last week and on the back of this we look to the Collingwood bounce.
