The Giants may have gotten complacent in their clash with the Crows, and allowed the Crows their second win for the season with a 12 Point loss.
The Demons were very disappointing in their round 16 clash to the Fremantle Dockers and lost the match by 14 Points.
The Giants have made a massive eight changes for this clash with the most significant outs being Stephen Coniglio and Jake Riccardi. Josh Kelly, Harry Perryman and Zac Williams head a list of important ins for the Giants.
For the Demons, Michael Hibberd is out with an injury and Toby Bedford, and Braydon Pruess have been dropped. Mitch Brown, Charlie Spargo and Neville Jetta come back into the team.
Current Head to Head Odds
GWS – $1.65
Melbourne – $2.25
Both sides were average last week, and with a spot in the finals still up for grabs, the Giants have included some players that will make a difference out on the footy field. The Demons are a mess going forward and will find it tough against the Giants defenders. The Giants should be too strong in this clash and get it done.
Our Pick – GWS Giants (Win)
Player Prop – Zac Williams + 65.5 Fantasy Points
Williams comes back into the team for this clash and can provide a spark. The Demons have not been the most damaging up forward this season, and it may give Williams a chance to be aggressive with the football from the back half and try and set up play. Should cover this number.
Player Prop – Toby Greene + 67.5 Fantasy Points
The Giants need to find something on the forward half, and Greene may spend some time in the middle of the ground to get back some confidence. Could smash this number if he plays around half the match in the middle and boots a few goals.
