Greater Western Sydney Giants vs St Kilda Saints Preview
The pressure is very much on coach Leon Cameron and his GWS Giants team heading into season 2021 and they go in the $1.68 favourites against the Saints on Sunday.
It beats me as to why.
GWS was a major disappointment last year and I honestly can’t see them improving.
When these two sides met in Round 18 last year, St Kilda smashed the Giants by 52-points on a Friday night at the Gabba ensuring a finals berth.
In terms of improvement, St Kilda has ticked all the boxes last year, making the finals, winning a final and bowing out gallantly against the eventual premiers.
It was only pre-season, but the Saints looked mighty good against Carlton in that high-scoring affair and St Kilda have plenty to look forward to, whereas questions remain about the Giants.
The news that Max King will miss the opening game due to a concussion is a major blow for the Saints, and probably plays a major reason as to why the Giants open the game as favourites but there’s still plenty of depth for St Kilda.
The Saints are way too good a bet at the $2.20 head to head and should chalk up a big win on the road to kick-off season 2021.
