Adelaide Crows are on a season high after recording their first win of the campaign last week in a shock performance, but can they repeat the effort against GWS Giants at the Adelaide Oval on Tuesday?

Adelaide Crows Form


After winning their first match of the season last week with victory over Hawthorn, there were plenty of celebrations in the change rooms.

But as the Crows re-focus, they come up against a much stronger opponent here in last year's Grand Final runners-up the Giants.

The Crows were to slick with ball in hand against Hawthorn, which is the same game style they need to bring to this match with some stars for GWS also loving to hold possession as long as they can.

GWS Giants Form


GWS Giants are looking for three wins on the trot. A Finals campaign for the Giants hinges on this match, and they must win to hold onto eighth spot with two teams in behind also in contention.

The Giants could show up and blow Adelaide away in the first quarter, or they can potentially scrap out a match and drop it quite easily. There has been no in-betweens for the Giants.

GWS love to hold possession of the ball. They move it quick, but they kick to free players and try to avoid the contested ball in the air.

GWS Giants Team News


The Giants are still needing Callan Ward back in the side and he is due to return in the next two rounds. He will add some more class to their side which they need come finals time if they are to make it.

Adelaide Crows vs GWS Giants Head To Head

Adelaide hold the recent head to head advantage having won three of their last five against last season's Grand Finalists.

Their last clash in June last year went the way of Adelaide by 21 points, due to a last quarter flogging.

This year both teams are in very different form, so we are expecting the recent record to swing the way of the Giants.

Adelaide Crows vs GWS Giants Betting Odds

Adelaide are the outsiders at 3.50 while GWS do represent some value at 1.30. The line has been set at -19.5 for GWS.

Adelaide Crows vs GWS Giants Match Up

The key match up here could be between Ben Keays and Lachie Whitfield.

Both players are key to their own side, being the wingmen who are clean with disposal and gather a lot of the ball.

On reputation, Whitfield is the far superior player. Keays, a seconds player at the Lions, has made an impact and stamped himself at senior level this season.

The player who wins the most ball could be the one to have the most influence on this match.
