The West Coast Eagles are the powerhouse club of Western Australia.
Since joining the competition in 1987, the Eagles have won four AFL premierships from six Grand Final appearances and fielded some of the greatest players in the modern history of the game.
West Coast head into 2019 as reigning champions after coming from behind to pip Collingwood in an epic grand final. The question is: can they do it again?

Best West Coast Eagles bets for the 2018 AFL season
Where are the best Eagles bets in the AFL futures markets that matter?
Click on the tabs below to get more analysis on these markets:
- After making the finals with one of the league’s oldest lists last season, not many are giving West Coast of repeating the feat in 2018, let alone going all the way to win a flag. The Eagles’ midfield, especially with the retirements of Priddis and Mitchell, is just too thin to make a realistic run at a premiership. The $41 on offer just isn’t enough to make us bite
- Can the Eagles make the finals? Yes, but there’s some big variables at play.
Coming into their first season at their new home ground at Optus Stadium, the club’s success this year will depend on its performance at home – like it is every season. If the Eagles can turn their new home into a fortress in which they win the majority of its games, finals is a possibility.
- Luke Shuey is going to start the season as the Eagles’ best midfielder and best hope for the Brownlow Medal at $51, but the reality is, Shuey would need to exceed his best football and the Eagles would have to win enough to make finals. Both are not likely.
- After playing a handful of games last season, Eagles youngster Luke Partington is still eligible for the Rising Star Award. If the Eagles struggle and play youth as we expect them to, Partington could be a real bolter in this field. Keep an eye on the $21 at Sportsbet.com.au.
Eagles full forward Josh Kennedy has been the favourite in Coleman Medal betting since the 2018 markets opened. After winning the award four times and regularly featuring as the All Australian full forward, Kennedy has proven himself as the game’s best goal-kicker and he’s proven to tally majors whether his team is winning or losing. Kennedy’s only worry is injury. If the bearded wonder plays more than 18 games, the $3.50 looks like real value.
