Kicking off Sunday's AFL action will be the Brisbane Lions and Adelaide Crows when they take to the Gabba - both clubs arrive with differing recent fortunes.

Following an upset loss at the hands of Hawthorn in Round 1, the Lions have fought back and were at their most impressive for 2020 via a 30-point victory over West Coast last week.

It's been nothing but turmoil for a traditionally proud Adelaide Football Club recently who were humilated by the Suns to the tune of 53 points at Metricon Stadium after a monster defeat at the hands of Port Adelaide in Round 2.

Brisbane vs Adelaide Head To Head

Brisbane defeated Adelaide by the narrowest of margins last time these two teams met in Round 9, 2019 with a 93-92 result in their favour.

It was Adelaide with a heavy advantage over the Lions in seven consecutive clashes prior to that which includes a pair of 100 point plus wins against Brisbane.

Adelaide leads 8-2 in the last 10 fixtures between they and Brisbane.

Brisbane vs Adelaide Betting Odds

The head-to-head market, the Brisbane Lions are clear 1.13 favourites with Adelaide at 5.80 to roll the Lions.

With a stack of pride on the line and a great recent record against the Lions, the +31.5 line for the Crows makes appeal.

Brisbane vs Adelaide Match Up

Brisbane are expected to dispose of Adelaide, but off some very low form, we're expecting a much better effort from the Crows.

Whilst it isn't the same line-up that participated and were favoured to win the 2017 Grand Final, Talia, Laird, Crouch (Brad & Matt), Smith, Lynch, Sloane and Walker are still in this Crows team and as a club under pressure, it's their leaders that need to stand up this week.

Brisbane appear to have Adelaide covered on ability and depth via most lines, however, the Adelaide defence is still quite strong on paper and of those further up the field, there's still enough firepower to kick a winning score should they be up and about this round.

Brisbane vs Adelaide Key Stats

  • Taylor Walker has kicked 2 or more goals in all of his last nine matches against the Lions
  • Rory Laird has notched up 25+ disposal efforts in each of Adelaide's last five interstate fixtures
  • Mitch Robinson has accrued 20+ disposals in every one of Brisbane's last 11 day games

Verdict

The Lions should be winning but with the +31.5 handicap for the Crows, we're banking on them bringing a better effort.

With many goal scoring options for the Lions, Darcy Fogarty may only need to score 2-3 majors to be the highest goal kicker for the match and he'll be Adelaide's main target.
