Best West Coast Eagles bets for the 2021 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:
- The Eagles struggled at staged in 2020, especially forced to hub away from Perth. They are one of the hardest teams to beat on their own deck, but their recent form on the road is a concern. If they can do enough to secure a home final, a tilt at the title is not out of the question.
- West Coast have finished fifth in each of the last two seasons, so they are certainly there or thereabouts in the running for a top-four slot. However, with midfield guns Luke Shuey and Elliot Yeo entering the campaign under an injury cloud, they might struggle to keep up with the likes of Richmond, Geelong and Brisbane in the first half of the year.
- Tim Kelly had a mixed debut season at West Coast, but he is a known vote-getter and should feature prominently in the 2021 Brownlow Medal count if he is afforded a largely undisrupted campaign. Andrew Gaff is another to keep an on.
- Jack Darling and Josh Kennedy have been the deadliest forward duo of the past few years, so it is no surprise to see them both well supported in the Coleman Medal betting. Take your pick; it is just about impossible to split them.
West Coast players to watch in 2020
Hub life didn’t agree with Tim Kelly, who endured an up-and-down 2020 season after his big switch from Geelong. But we all know how good this guy is, and the Eagles will be hard to beat in 2021 if their gun rover is firing on all cylinders most weeks.
After a few frustrating, injury-riddled years, Nic Nat finally put together a full season in 2020 and reasserted himself as one of the AFL’s premier ruckmen. His tap work is second to none, while there are few players who can match his physical presence around stoppages.
Elliot Yeo was one of the competition’s best midfielders a couple of years ago, but injuries restricted him to just 10 games in what was a patchy 2020 campaign. A persistent groin problem will keep Yeo out for the first few weeks of the season at least, and it remains to be seen how big an impact he will have in 2021.
