Expert Analysis and Prediction
Brisbane is one of just four teams with at least four wins. More importantly, the Lions are the statistically better team at both ends of the pitch. Brisbane also leads GWS in every other meaningful category, including disposals, kicks, clearances and tackles. GWS suffered a humbling 80-60 home loss against North Melbourne in round 2 and that leads me to believe they’ll be beaten again on their home pitch by a Brisbane squad that is just a tad better – at everything – than the Giants are. Despite being on the road and being slight underdogs, I’m going with the Brisbane Lions to get it done in an all-out ‘street brawl’ kind of matchup. Brisbane gets it done as a value-packed +110 road dog!
Pick: Brisbane +110
