Sydney Swans vs West Coast Eagles Predictions and Betting Tips
🏈 AFL Round 15 Match Preview
⏰ 24 June 2023 - 16:35 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Sydney Cricket Ground
The upcoming clash between the West Coast Eagles and Sydney presents an opportunity for the Swans to secure a morale-boosting victory in Round 15. While Sydney reached the Grand Final in 2022, their fortunes have taken a downturn this season, with John Longmire's team managing only five wins out of 13 matches. The Swans head into their next game after enduring a consecutive two-game losing streak, with their recent defeat coming at the hands of the Brisbane Lions.
It appears highly unlikely that the West Coast can reverse its fortunes in Sydney, considering their recent struggles. Since their triumph over GWS in Round 2, the Eagles have suffered defeat by a margin of 40 points or more in every subsequent game. Having had a bye in Round 14, the Perth-based team had ample time to reflect on their performance in Round 13, where they endured a resounding 122-point loss to Adelaide in Adelaide. The Eagles had little to celebrate from that game. Ryan Maric made an impressive debut by scoring two goals, and Elliot Yeo (30 disposals) and Tim Kelly (27 disposals) performed admirably.
West Coast now faces a daunting challenge against Sydney, while grappling with a tumultuous season marked by a significant number of injuries to key players. Adam Simpson's side has managed only one victory in their 13 matches in 2023, frequently succumbing to heavy defeats. In their most recent outing, they travelled to Brisbane, where they suffered a 16-point loss to the Lions, a margin that could have been greater if not for the home team's inaccuracy. Jake Lloyd and Errol Gulden both contributed 27 disposals, with Gulden also adding two goals to his tally.
Sydney Swans Performance
The Sydney Swans experienced a period of positive momentum in May, culminating in victories over North Melbourne and the Carlton Blues. However, their progress was halted by losses to the St Kilda Saints and Brisbane Lions, two teams currently ranked in the top five of the ladder.
When playing on their home turf, the Swans have encountered difficulties, managing to secure only two wins out of six matches in Sydney this season. Nonetheless, facing the last-placed Eagles provides an opportunity for them to enhance their home record.
West Coast Eagles Performance
West Coast has endured a highly disappointing season, currently occupying the bottom spot on the ladder with just one victory in 13 matches. Their challenging campaign has been marked by a disheartening streak of 11 consecutive losses, with their most recent defeat being a humiliating 174-52 thrashing by the Adelaide Crows.
The Eagles' struggles have been particularly evident in their away games, where they have conceded 100 points or more in their last six consecutive matches. Given these circumstances, there are legitimate concerns regarding their performance in the upcoming match.
📋 Players to watch:
- Dane Rampe has showcased consistent performance with 15 or more disposals in his last seven matches.
- Jake Lloyd has displayed an average of 29.5 disposals in his previous four encounters against West Coast. Furthermore, Lloyd has achieved 25 or more disposals in six out of his last seven games when facing the Eagles.
- Chad Warner has demonstrated an impressive record of 25 or more disposals in three of the Swans' last four SCG games.
- Dom Sheed has maintained an average of 29 disposals in his recent three matches against the Swans.
- Tim Kelly has achieved 25 or more disposals in his past eight matches, highlighting his consistent contribution on the field.
- Oscar Allen has been prolific in front of goal, scoring 2 or more goals in 11 out of his last 13 matches.
- Tom Papley has been a formidable presence against West Coast, booting eight goals in his previous three encounters with the Eagles.
⚡ Match Facts:
- In the previous six encounters between the two teams, Sydney has emerged victorious in five of them.
- West Coast has not secured a win against the Swans at the SCG since 1999, highlighting their historical struggles at that venue.
- Throughout the current season, Sydney has achieved five wins out of their 13 games, while West Coast has only managed to secure a single victory.
- When it comes to goals scored this season, the Eagles rank last, while Sydney sits in the 9th position in the respective category.
💡 Match Prediction
The Sydney Swans encountered their second consecutive loss in their recent clash against the Brisbane Lions. Despite their position at the lower end of the ladder, they remain optimistic, considering their relatively commendable performances in their last two matches. They now have the opportunity to face the West Coast Eagles, who currently occupy the bottom position. The Eagles' dismal performance continued last week, as they suffered a crushing 174-52 defeat at the hands of the Adelaide Crows, extending their losing streak to 11 consecutive games. Another defeat by a margin of 40 points or more seems likely in this upcoming encounter.
