      Gold Coast Suns: Loss to Fremantle, 68-96

By Nathan Marotta

Saturday, 14th April, 8:10 pm AEST, 2018, Optus Stadium, Watch on Fox Footy.

The Gold Coast Suns will play at Optus Stadium for the second consecutive week on Saturday, taking on the early bolters of the AFL season – the West Coast Eagles.

The Eagles, fifth on the ladder, and the Suns, sixth, have both exceeded early expectations, but reality has a way of finding us all eventually.

The bookies have given the Suns no hope in this match as the odds are slanted severely in the Eagles’ favour.

The battle of the coasts should be closer than the bookies think as Stewart Dew and his men have spent the last 10 days in Perth due to their back-to-back fixture at the venue. Not having a home ground has not troubled the young side so far and they should look to keep that trend going.

West Coast has suffered an injury to its most exciting forward, Liam Ryan, who snapped a bone in his ankle last week. On a positive note, Club leading goal kicker for the past 5 years, Josh Kennedy, may make a return as he has announced himself fit for the match.

Let’s take a look at the betting and find the value for the match.

West Coast Eagles vs Gold Coast Suns Round 4 – Total Points Over/Under tips

West Coast Eagles

110.5 Over/Under – Over @ $2.10 with CrownBet

The equation is very simple, if Josh Kennedy plays, the Eagles’ chances of scoring a huge total increase. With one of the best forward lines in the competition, Adam Simpson has multiple weapons he can deploy when he feels the need. Nic Naitanui will spend more time on the ground this week and possibly rest forward for an even more dangerous line up.

Gold Coast Suns

80.5 Over/Under – Under @ $1.45 with CrownBet

When they played Fremantle last week, the Suns only scored 68 total points. It is well known that the Eagles have the stronger backline out of the two Western Australian sides. Jeremy McGovern will have to play on Tom Lynch, the in-form Gold Coast full forward. If you can stop Lynch, you can stop the Suns.

West Coast Eagles vs Gold Coast Suns Round 4 – Player Specials

West Coast Eagles

Scott Lycett 2+ Goals @ $2.20 with William Hill

With Nic Naitanui playing less game time, Scott Lycett has been given the opportunity to play more football in 2018. When the big man pushes forward he can expose the only liability to Jarrod Witts’ game — his defensive prowess. Scott should attempt to push forward and score against the Suns.

Gold Coast Suns

Tom Lynch 3+ @ $2.40 with William Hill

Jump on the Tom Lynch train. He has already kicked nine goals in 2018 and more are to come. If he can break the McGovern shackles, scoring shouldn’t be a problem as he has so many ways he can score. He should impress with more contested marking in this game and kick three.

West Coast Eagles vs Gold Coast Suns Round 4 – Any Player to tips

Any Player to kick 5+ Yes/No

No @ $1.45 with Sportsbet

The only threat to the five-goal limit in this match will be key forwards Lynch and Kennedy. Locking those players down will be the number one dot point on the whiteboards of both coaches coming into the match and while they’ll get their fair share of opportunities, we’re backing that neither of them truly dominate.

Any Player to get 40 disposals Yes/No

No @ $1.04 with Sportsbet

The odds do not pay out much and with good reason. Neither team possesses a player that is capable of acquiring the footy 40 times. The highest disposal average across both teams in Jarryd Lions who does not even average 30. We do not think a player will tally 40 touches in this game of football.

Eagles vs. Suns Match Predictions

Match Results: West Coast to win @ $1.15 with Ladbrokes
Line betting: Gold Coast +35.5 @ $1.92 with Ladbrokes

Spending the week in Perth will work wonders for Stuart Dew’s men. They will not be able to win the match, but they will be competitive as they have shown all year so far. A big win to the Eagles by under six goals is what we predict.
