West Coast Eagles v Carlton Tips and Predictions - Eagles to be too good for Blues

Gary Emmerson 10 Aug 2017
  • West Coast Eagles have won five of the last seven meetings including the last two
  • The Eagles have won seven of nine games at home this year
  • Carlton are the lowest scoring team in the AFL

West Coast Eagles face a must-win game when they entertain Carlton at Domain Stadium on Saturday night after dropping out of the top eight last weekend.

The game gets underway at 7.40pm AEST (5.40pm AWST) and will be broadcast on Fox Sports, while AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are. 

Match Preview


West Coast Eagles are back in a sticky situation after losing last week's key clash against St Kilda, a result that left them outside of the finals spots.

Being back at home will be a comfort for Adam Simpson's men and the out of sorts Blues are the perfect opponents for a side needing to pick up four points this weekend.

The Eagles are far from at their best, winning just four of the last 11 games and dropping to 10-9 for the season, but they have won seven of nine home games at Domain Stadium and this should be another.

Carlton have played well in patches this season but they've hit a rocky patch and last weekend's defeat to Essendon Bombers was their seventh loss in a row.

The Blues now sit 17th on the ladder having amassed just five wins all year and continue to struggle for points and, while they might put up another spirited display, expect them to be overpowered convincingly in the west.

Team News


West Coast Eagles are boosted by the return of Matt Priddis, Lewis Jetta and Nathan Vardy, who come in for Malcolm Karpany, Chris Masten and Will Schofield.

An arm injury to Caleb Marchbank forces Carlton into one change with Tom Williamson named in his place.

Stats


  • West Coast Eagles have won five of the last seven meetings including the last two
  • The Eagles have won seven of nine games at home this year
  • Carlton are the lowest scoring team in the AFL

Prediction and Tips


Expect West Coast to collect the points in a comfortable and much needed win.
