Gold Coast Suns vs St Kilda Saints Preview
If recent encounters between these two sides are anything to go by, we could be in for an absolute thriller this Saturday afternoon as the Suns take on the Saints at Metricon Stadium.
The past three games have been decided by less than a kick, however, the Saints have won each of their last five against the Gold Coast.
With both sides coming off big wins last weekend, they’ll each fancy their chances, and at the time of publishing – the punters can’t separate them with the Suns’ narrow $1.87 favorites and the Saints at $1.95 in the head to head betting.
St Kilda gave Hawthorn a bath last week, with many people asking where this Saints team been all year, while the Gold Coast Suns had a comfortable win over the Magpies in a rare trip to the MCG.
A Gold Coast v St Kilda match-up is now also known as the King-Twins Derby, with Max at one end for the Saints and Ben King on the other at the Suns.
It has all the makings of a sentimental same game multi.
I’m expecting another arm-wrestle with a bit more scoring this time, so I’ll back the over (160.5) along with both Ben (GC) and Max (St K) to kick 2+ goals at either end of the ground at the NICE price of $3.69
