North Melbourne vs GWS Giants Predictions


Both teams arrive fresh off a bye in Round 12 and will be looking to make amends following Round 11 defeats, especially the Giants who were in good form prior to their heavy loss at the Gabba.

While North Melbourne are starting to become more competitve, this is a game that GWS can't afford to drop if they're to stay in touch with the Top 8 on the ladder. They can cover a very attainable -23.5 line.

  • North Melbourne have lost 18 of their last 19 matches
  • North Melbourne are the lowest scoring AFL team in season 2021
  • Each of GWS's last four games have gone over the total match points line
  • Toby Greene has kicked 3+ goals in his last two matches against North Melbounre at Blundstone Arena

Head to Head


From their last 10 clashes, it is 7-3 in favour of North Melbourne.

North Melbourne defeated GWS by 20 points in Round 2 last year, which was the last time these two sides met.

North Melbourne Form


Over the first six rounds of this season, North Melbourne were one of the more uncompetitve teams the AFL has seen in the last 25 years. 

Heavy defeats were handed out regularly to the Kangaroos, but they have been much better in recent rounds.

It's necessary pain for North Melbourne though, a blue collar club who were consistently punching above their weight, especially when Brad Scott was coaching. 

Now, they can bottom out and access the draft to finally bring in some A Grade talent over the next few years.

GWS Giants Form


The Giants have got right into their work as this season has worn on with a narrow defeat at the hands of Richmond in Round 9 costing them a handy streak.

It was a match that they threw away given they led by as much as 28 points in the third quarter.

GWS aren't the first and certainly won't be the last team to receive a touch up from the Lions at the Gabba, so it's hard to look too much into that most recent outing.

GWS get a big lift on Sunday with match-winner Toby Greene returning to the line up.

Tough nut Matt de Boer is also back for the Giants along with Adam Kennedy and Jake Stein.

GWS can't let this one slip if they're to remain in finals calculations and the -23.5 line can be covered against the Kangaroos.

Both teams have been in some high scoring contests in recent rounds, so the over 190.5 match points option may be worth a spec at longer odds.
