GWS Giants vs Richmond Tigers Predictions


The GWS Giants were consigned to a third-straight defeat last week as the St Kilda Saints battled to a 92-80 win on the road.

The Richmond Tigers have seen their two-game winning run quickly replaced by a two-game losing run as they were beaten by the Essendon Bombers and Port Adelaide Power. I'm tipping another defeat is on the cards.

Head to Head


The Tigers hammered the Giants last time out as they romped to a 109-73 win over their opponents in early-2022. 

The general pattern has seen the home side winning the last 15 games, with an away side last winning back in 2014. In their last 10, the Tigers have won five and the Giants have won five. 

GWS Giants Form 


The Giants are yet to back up one win with another this season, with victories always followed by a defeat to see the momentum taken away. 

They are suffering particularly badly right now as they come into this one on the back of a three-game losing run to the Brisbane Lions, Western Bulldogs and St Kilda Saints. 

These defeats have seen the Giants slip down to 14th on the ladder, and they are already facing a fight to make the finals.

Richmond Tigers Form


The Tigers have found it tough to create and maintain any momentum this term, with Richmond slipping down to 15th on the ladder, one place below their hosts. 

Their 77-67 defeat at the hands of the Port Adelaide Power last time out was another defeat by 10 points or less, with this following a pulsating 71-70 loss to the Essendon Bombers in the game before.

Verdict

I am backing the Giants to come out on top and end their three game losing run, with home advantage clearly pivotal in the history of this matchup.
