GWS v Carlton R17 preview

The GWS Giants return to the home soil of ENGIE Stadium this Saturday night, when they will host a high-flying Carlton side in a round 17 clash with AFL finals implications.

GWS have slumped out of the top eight with a poor month of football that included losses to the Hawks, Swans and Crows. Their only win during this period was a low-scoring home victory over the struggling Power.

Online bookmakers have allowed the Giants to drift in premiership betting markets, and they now sit around the $15 mark.

GWS suffered a huge injury blow in the loss to the Crows, with gun midfielder Josh Kelly set to miss a month or more with a calf strain. Defender Nick Haynes will face a test on a hamstring strain but looks a solid chance to return.

Carlton kept their flawless recent run intact with a comfortable 61-point win over the Tigers in round 16. Averaging some 14.8 goals per game, the Blues now sit a clear second on the AFL ladder and have shortened to $4 to win the flag.


Carlton fans were relieved to hear that midfielder Matthew Kennedy avoided major damage to his knee against Richmond and may be fit to play this week. Emerging ruckman Tom De Koning was managed in round 16 and looks likely to return. The versatile Matthew Cottrell trained with the main group last week and will face a fitness test for an injured foot.

GWS v Carlton betting predictions

Carlton appear the obvious choice to continue on their winning ways. The Blues apply the type of pressure that will trouble the Giants, and they appear close to unbeatable on recent form. Get on Carlton to cover the 5.5-point line at $1.90 on Neds.

The Blues kicked 131 points against the Tigers last week and 138 against the Cats in round 15. Their forward line appears potent and organised. If they can replicate recent efforts here, over 163.5 total points looks to be the play at $1.90 on Unibet.

Carlton small forward Matthew Owies is enjoying a career-best year. The 27-year-old has kicked 13 goals across his past eight games, while he has finished with multiples in five matches this season. At $2.25 with top AFL betting sites, Owies offers decent value to kick two or more majors.
