AFL Preview Round 6: Crows v Suns

Saturday night AFL action heads back to the Adelaide Oval, where the 8th placed Crows will take on the 12th placed Suns, with both sides sitting 3-2 to start 2018. After a week of constant negative media attention, the Taylor Walker-led Crows responded with a bang- surprising the Swans in Sydney as 26 point underdogs. Will Adelaide continue to build on their undefeated record against Gold Coast, or will Stewy Dew have his boys firing 2 weeks in a row?


Crows (LWWLW) – The Crows followed a very disappointing 48-point loss at home with a big upset against the Swans in Sydney- and that has pretty much been the trend so far this season.

Suns (WWLLW) – Despite their horror draw to begin the season thanks to the Commonwealth Games, the Suns have been one of the surprise packets in 2018, and are sitting 3-2 for the season. Their win last round against the Lions was full of fight, but they have struggled on the quick back up so far.

Stats That Matter
– Both sides sit 1-4 on the Over/Under this season
– Bryce Gibbs averages 120 Fantasy points per game against the Suns
– Gold Coast have never beaten the Crows in 10 attempts
– Rory Laird has averaged 31 disposals in his past 3 against Gold Coast
– The average margin in their past 5 meetings is 52
– Taylor Walker has kicked 3+ goals on 3 occasions this season

Betting Data

2018 Line: Crows- 3-2; Suns- 3-2
2018 Over-Under: Crows- 1-4; Suns- 1-4

What To Expect

The Wolf is a big fan of the way Stewy Dew has the Suns playing, but the Crows in Adelaide are a different proposition- and the fact Gold Coast are on a 6-day break after a tough win over Brisbane won’t help.

How It’s Shaping Up
Adelaide by 42 points
