Essendon Bombers vs Greater Western Sydney Giants Preview
A difficult game to tip to finish off the round with finals repercussions on the line for both teams. The Giants have won six of the last seven against the Bombers, entering as favourite in all seven, while the Bombers have covered the line in five of their last six meetings. With this in mind, The Wolf will play the total points.
When these two met in Round 8 it was the Giants that were victorious by 2 points, but it was the total points that were eye-opening coming to 212 with both teams kicking over 100 points.
Eight of the Giants’ last 10 games have gone overs with seven of those going over the current line of 162.5 points, while Essendon remains the team that plays in the highest scoring games in the competition averaging 172.8 per game.
Since Round 10 the Giants concede the second most points in the competition averaging 85.3 points against, and with Essendon being the third highest scoring team this season averaging 88.3 points we can expect another shootout on Sunday evening going over the 162.5 total points.
