Geelong Cats vs West Coast Eagles Predictions


Geelong bounced back last week against North Melbourne, a game they simply had to win, but it was far from convincing. West Coast have been mixed this season, winning all of their home games and losing both away matches.

The home side has dominated recently when these two sides have met, with the last eight clashes going that way. That makes the Cats the best bet.

  • The home side has won all of the last 8 clashes.
  • Geelong Cats have won 7 of their last 8 home matches.
  • West Coast have lost 10 of their last 12 away matches.
  • The away team has won 5 of the 42 matches played at GMHBA Stadium.

Head-to-Head


The stats tell in head to heads with the last eight meetings all being won by the home side.

There is rarely much between the two sides, with the only blowout going Geelong's way in 2019.

Geelong Cats Form


The Cats showed some age in the legs last week against the North Melbourne Kangaroos before a little bit of class kicked in and they won 77-47.

Geelong were no match for the Melbourne Demons, who are in flying form, they previous week and were very lucky to string two wins together against Brisbane Lions and Hawthorn.

They get the home game again, where they are a dominant force, which should see them bounce back to their best.

Geelong Cats Team News


The good news is that the Cats have named Jeremy Cameron in the side for the first time as the forward makes his Geelong debut. 

Mark O'Connor also returns for Geelong, but Patrick Dangerfield is out. He faces ankle surgery and could face a lengthy layoff.

West Coast Eagles Form


The Eagles are flying at home as they showed when beating Port Adelaide very easily in Round 3 and Collingwood last week at Optus Stadium.

But the Eagles have been rather flat when playing away, losing both road trips this season against Western Bulldogs and St Kilda.

This seems a very even contest on paper, but the Eagles just don't travel. And have to contend with fortress GMHBA Stadium.

West Coast Eagles Team News


Josh Kennedy suffered an ankle injury, and is a big out for the Eagles. That is the only change for West Coast.
