Gold Coast Suns vs Hawthorn Hawks Predictions and Betting Tips
🏈 AFL Round 15 Match Preview
⏰ 25 June 2023 - 16:40 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Metricon Stadium
In spite of a promising start, Stuart Dew's team conceded 10 goals in the second quarter, ultimately succumbing to a 59-point defeat. Among the few standout performers, Noah Anderson showcased his skills with 27 disposals, while Levi Casboult and Ben Ainsworth each managed to score two goals. Gold Coast enters the head-to-head betting as strong favourites, but they will need to rectify their performance from Round 14. The Suns travelled to Melbourne to face Carlton, a team that had suffered six consecutive losses leading up to the match.
Unfortunately for Hawthorn, Sicily will be absent from this game due to a three-week suspension imposed by the tribunal. The team will undoubtedly feel his absence, especially considering their recent success with three wins in their last four matches. Gold Coast has won two of their previous three encounters at the venue, with their only loss being a close five-point defeat against Melbourne in Round 8. In their previous two home games, both of which were played in Darwin against the Western Bulldogs and Adelaide, they emerged victorious before their loss to Carlton.
Hawthorn enjoyed a bye weekend, providing them with an opportunity to reflect on their impressive victory over the Brisbane Lions in the preceding round. The team secured a 25-point victory, with Mitch Lewis and Jacob Koschitzke combining for seven goals, while James Sicily displayed exceptional defensive skills with 32 disposals. The main issue surrounding Hawthorn revolves around their performance on the road, as they have lost their last six matches outside of Victoria, including their second home ground in Tasmania. Furthermore, they have suffered defeats in their past two visits to the Suns' home ground.
📋 Players to watch:
- Gold Coast has emerged victorious in two out of the last three games between the two sides, showcasing their competitiveness.
- James Worpel, a consistent performer, has been exceptional in his recent outings, achieving 25 or more disposals in six out of his past seven matches. In the remaining game, he recorded a commendable tally of 24 disposals.
- Noah Anderson, known for his strong midfield presence, has been in remarkable form, surpassing 25 disposals in nine of his past 10 matches.
- Ben King, a prolific goal kicker, has been consistently impactful, scoring 2 or more goals in eight of his past nine games. Although he managed to score only one goal in the previous week, he will be determined to bounce back strongly.
- Mitchell Lewis has been a dominant force in front of goal, netting an impressive 16 goals in his last four matches, underlining his ability to find the scoring opportunities with great success.
⚡ Match Facts:
- Gold Coast has emerged victorious in two out of the past three games between the two sides, showcasing their ability to compete at a high level.
- With a win-loss record of 6-7 this season, the Suns find themselves in the 12th position on the ladder, while Hawthorn stands at 4-9, placing them in the 16th position.
- In terms of average disposals, Hawthorn ranks 2nd in the league for the 2023 season, highlighting their proficiency in maintaining possession. On the other hand, Gold Coast finds itself in the 18th position in this category.
- When it comes to points scored, the Suns currently sit in the 13th position, demonstrating their ability to find the scoreboard. Hawthorn, however, ranks 16th in this aspect, indicating the need for improvement in their offensive output.
💡 Match Prediction
The Gold Coast Suns' hopes of securing a third consecutive victory were dashed as they suffered a defeat at the hands of Carlton. It proved to be a frustrating match for the Suns, and now they face a Hawthorn team that has shown improved form in recent times. Hawthorn has emerged victorious in three out of their last four matches, including a notable win against the Brisbane Lions in their most recent outing. While Hawthorn may feel confident about securing another win, it is worth noting that they have only won one out of their last nine matches on the road. In contrast, the Suns have displayed strong performances at home, winning four of their last five games. As a result, the hosts are considered the favourites heading into the upcoming match.
