A spot in the top four is available for the Sydney Swans this weekend at the SCG, but they have to knock off an enthusiastic Gold Coast outfit to climb the AFL ladder.

The Suns have been playing much better this season despite their 2-5 record, as they have once again struggled converting their good play into victories.

John Longmire’s Swans currently sit with an inverted record to the Suns, as they have already notched up five impressive wins from the first seven matches.

The Swans are going to be a very hard team to beat in the future, as their squad is filled with supremely talented young up-and-coming stars.

Stuart Dew and the Gold Coast Suns also have plenty of talented youngsters, but they also have just as many players who are struggling to live up to their early draft hype.

It will not be an easy task for the Suns to knock off the Swans at the SCG, but they have won three of the last five matchups and could pull off another big upset.

Key matchup: Callum Mills vs Touk Miller

In terms of defensive accountability, there are no better examples in the midfield than Callum Mills and Touk Miller. The two star on-ballers are both very good at working both ways and helping out their teammates across the entire ground, which allows them to rack up plenty of disposals. Miller was phenomenal against the Magpies last week with 36 disposals and two goals, while Mills has been putting up similar numbers in the last month. It will be a joy to watch these two guns go head-to-head this weekend, as the winner of this matchup could decide the contest.

Sydney vs Gold Coast betting predictions

Although the Suns put up a very good fight against the Magpies and the Swans were underwhelming in round seven, we think Sydney will storm home with a big win this Saturday. Lance Franklin kicked a big bag of six goals last week and could be in for an ever bigger output this weekend.

Callum Mills disposal betting odds

There are very few players in the competition as consistent as Callum Mills has been for the Swans since becoming a full-time midfielder. Mills started his year with a couple of less impressive games, but he has exploded with 28, 28, 37 and 30 disposals in the last four matches. The likes of Touk Miller and Matt Rowell will match up well with Mills in heavy traffic, but he has been a class above in the last month and should thrive in the heat.
