Friday, 15th June, 7:50 pm AEST, 2018, SCG, Watch on the Seven Network and on the Fox Footy Network.
The biggest match Round 13 has on offer will be played between the Sydney Swans and the West Coast Eagles at the SCG this Friday night.
The third-placed Swans are out to break the Eagles’ 11-game winning streak, while the Eagles are hoping to get revenge on the Swans, who gave the Eagles their only blemish of the season all the way back in Round one.
Neither side has put a foot wrong in the past five weeks, charging towards the finals and a top four finish in 2018. This match will be the biggest test the Eagles will have to endure all season. Playing the in-form Swans on the small SCG is a far cry from the wide expanses of Optus Stadium.
Sydney is coming off a match where it kicked nine goals in the opening term and won the match by an eventual 71-points, the perfect confidence-boost before a massive match. West Coast is coming off the bye and should be full of energy after a well-deserved rest.
The player that caused the most trouble in the opening round was the superstar himself, Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin, who comfortably kicked a bag of eight goals. If West Coast are to prevail, they’ll need to curtail the Swans champ.
With Eagles spearhead Jack Darling out, the West Coast Eagles will only do their premiership hopes a world of good with a win here.
Here are our tips for this Friday night blockbuster between the two best interstate sides in the league.
Sydney Swans vs. West Coast Eagles Round 13 – Total Goals Tips
Sydney Swans 12.5 Over/Under
On their home deck the Swans play an irresistible brand of football. The way they move the ball through the middle of the ground and find multiple players in great scoring opportunities is a sight to behold. The Eagles conceded over 13 goals in their most recent game against the lowly Saints and we expect it to happen again when the Swans super forwards get on a roll this Friday.
West Coast Eagles 10.5 Over/Under
Under @ $2.00 with Sportsbet
The poor Eagles will play without Jack Darling this week — one of the league’s most improved players in the in 2018. Jack was the number one goal-kicker for the club and was also prominent when these sides last met in Round one. From this omission alone, we do not see the Eagles’ forward line functioning the same way it has in the past 12 rounds and struggling to find avenues to goal here.
Sydney Swans vs. West Coast Eagles Round 13 – Player Specials Tips
The great man is arguably the best forward the modern era has ever seen, and he is ready to burst against the Eagles this Friday night. At the SCG the Bud kicks plenty of goals, averaging just under four goals per match at the venue. The Eagles will be targeting Franklin, but that will not stop him from dominating the match. If he plays half as good as his Round one performance, then he should get four goals.
Elliot Yeo to get 6 tackles @ $1.75 with William Hill
Elliot Yeo has become one of the best and most exciting midfield stars in the league. The tough on-baller finds himself at the bottom of plenty of packs and loves the aggressive side of our great game. In the SCG conditions, Yeo should thrive and play an excellent game. The contested style the Swans use suits Yeo perfectly and he will be happy to pull up his socks and stick some tackles. Yeo also averages six tackles per match, he only needs to meet his average to win us some pocket money for the weekend.
Sydney Swans vs. West Coast Eagles Round 13 – Tri Bet Tip
Sydney Swans to win by more than 15.5-points @ $2.08 with Ladbrokes
We believe the Eagles are not going to be able to compete against the strong Sydney Swans on their home deck. Without Darling it will be even harder to win this match and the odds are going against them in so many ways. The Swans should win comfortably in this match.
