The Brisbane Lions stamped themselves as genuine AFL premiership contenders with a gritty 24-point victory over the Swans in Sydney in round 7. They sit second on the ladder with a single 2022 blemish, and look set to have a deep September run if they can keep the momentum rolling. The high-flying Swans threw everything at the Lions, but they held firm, kept winning the ball, and will draw huge confidence from the pressure performance.

The West Coast Eagles are enduring a season from hell. The West Coast squad has been decimated through health protocols, but their performances have been much worse than that. They were torn apart by the rampaging Tigers in round 7, heaping pressure on senior players and coaching staff alike. Let’s not forget that West Coast won the flag in 2018. They are desperately lacking young talent, and cannot rely on stalwarts like Darling, Kennedy, and Hurn forever. This game offers them little chance at redemption.

Key Match-up: Lachie Neale vs Tim Kelly

Lions midfielder Lachie Neale is an unstoppable machine in 2022. He amassed 37 possessions, 9 tackles and kicked 1 goal against the Swans, superhuman statistics against a fellow premiership contender. So, who can step up and run with Neale here? Tim Kelly put up a reasonable performance against the Tigers and grabbed 31 possessions in round 6 against Port Adelaide. We’ll match the red-hot Neale with the tepid Kelly here with expectations that the rampant Lion will post another set of impressive numbers.

Brisbane Lions vs West Coast Eagles betting strategy

It’s not every day that you see an AFL team run out onto the field showing $1.02 with the top betting sites, but here we are. The Lions are considered that far in front. The line must be close to a record too at 63.5 points. So, what’s the play, how do we eke out a profit from what appears such a one-sided affair? As we saw when North Melbourne visited QLD, the young Lions can be ruthless against inferior opposition. Brisbane won the round 3 game by 108 points. The Lions are now travelling better, and West Coast appear inferior to the Kangaroos. So, we’ll just take Brisbane -63.5 points, available at PalmerBet, and trust that they go in for the kill.

Brisbane -63.5


Brisbane vs West Coast same-game multi tips

For value hunters we’ll link Brisbane to win by 40+, into Charlie Cameron 2+ goals, Zac Bailey 2+ goals, into Darcy Fort anytime goal kicker, into Jarryd Lyons 25+ possessions. This combo will return $4.77 courtesy of Ladbrokes. There should be a shower of Brisbane goals, and this looks like a likely path to value.
