AFL Round 22 Preview & Betting – Geelong Vs West Coast Eagles

Saturday afternoon hosts one of the easier matches to pick this weekend as the second-placed Geelong welcome the wooden spoon-winners West Coast to the Skilled Stadium.

For punters keen for a safe bet, this is the match for you. So be sure to head to Sportsbet so you can find the most rewarding odds available online.

The Cats will look to top off a great season with a devastating win this weekend and are at $1.02 to do so with Ladbrokes.com.au. They embarrassed Carlton last round with a 42-point thrashing, and could do so again considering the competition they face this weekend.

The defending Premiers will be without the revelation of the season – James Podsiadly, who has accepted a suspension. But key players Gary Ablett, Corey Enright and Joel Selwood are all in peak form having played superbly last weekend.

Since that tough loss to Collingwood in round 19 the Cats have played great footy. Coming out and demolishing the in-form Western Bulldogs the following week, and the Eagles look out of sorts to provide any sort of threat this weekend.

The West Coast are at $14 to claim the win with Ladbrokes.com.au, and what a way to end a long and fruitless season. There is nothing to play for other than pride for the Eagles, who will claim their first ever wooden spoon.

They looked steady against the under par North Melbourne side last weekend, and still couldn’t manage a win. So how will they fare against the star-studded Geelong team?

The side is young and has a promising future ahead of it, especially in the likes of the emerging Eagle Mark LeCras, but this season as just not been for them.

Our tip of the match is to back a substantial win by the Cats by 50-59 points at $7.50 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

AFLRules Tip Of The Match

The stakes are low for this one, for both sides. Geelong possesses players which can take on almost any fully-fit team in the AFL, and win. The only way we can see them losing this weekend is if they are overconfident, or key players are rested with the finals in sight. The Eagles have won just once in 11 years at the Skilled Stadium, and they don’t look in the right form to break that trend at the moment. Our tip of the match is to back a substantial win by the Cats by 50-59 points at $7.50 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
