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 2019 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:
- It wasn’t until the prelims that pundits on the other side of the Nullabor rated West Coast a real chance of winning the 2018 AFL Grand Final. Now that they’ve conquered all comers, there is no hope of the Eagles flying under the radar this time around. With some big names back on the park – Andrew Gaff and Nic Naitanui both missed the GF win – the reigning premiers cannot be ignored.
- The Eagles finished second en route to the 2018 flag and look a very good chance to clinch another top-four finish this year. The move from quirky Subiaco to the broad expanses of Perth Stadium has had a big effect on their play away from home, especially in Melbourne, so there are no excuses.
- The Eagles have a few promising candidates in the outright betting for the Brownlow Medal. Luke Shuey was immense in the finals last year, while West Coast’s run to the big dance means Andrew Gaff has only two weeks left to serve on his suspension. Our pick is Elliot Yeo, who should poll better this year after raising his profile considerably in 2018.
- As you might expect for a team fresh off a flag, there are no outstanding prospects for the AFL Rising Star at West Coast this year. Jarrod Brander, who went goalless in his one senior game last year, might be the pick of them.
- Eagles full forward Josh Kennedy is a perpetual favourite in the Coleman Medal betting markets. If he stays fit and plays deep forward, it is hard to see anyone beating him. Jack Darling also rates a mention after a career-best haul of 48 goals last year.
