West Coast Eagles vs Western Bulldogs Predictions


The Dogs have lost two of their last three matches, while West Coast beat up Richmond at this very oval. Home advantage at Optus Stadium can be the difference in the west once again.

  • West Coast Eagles have won 14 of their last 16 matches at Optus Stadium
  • West Coast Eagles have covered the line in their last six matches against the Western Bulldogs
  • Western Bulldogs have won their last 2 clashes against the West Coast Eagles
  • Western Bulldogs have lost 2 of their last 3 matches

Head-to-Head


West Coast Eagles lead their head-to-head count 5-2 from the last seven meeting, but the Western Bulldogs have taken out their last two clashes.

The last time West Coast played the Bulldogs at Optus Stadium it was a 10 goal margin in favour of the Eagles.

West Coast Eagles Form


West Coast are a different side when they play at home, winning over the Richmond Tigers in their last round match by four points.

It was a pearler of a match from two sides, but the advantage of Optus Stadium proved the difference in the end.

The Eagles unconvincingly beat Carlton by 22 points in Round 12, but that was away and I am convinced it is a 10-goal margin if that game had been played in Perth.

West Coast Eagles Team News


Jeremy McGovern, Luke Shuey, Nathan Vardy, Tim Kelly, Brad Sheppard and Jack Petruccelle all return to provide a major boost for the Eagles.

Harry Edwards, Luke Edwards and Xavier O’Neill make way.

Western Bulldogs Form


The Bulldogs have dropped two of their last three matches, one to Melbourne Demons three games back and a loss to Geelong Cats last week after the siren.

Sandwiched inbetween was a comfortable 93-65 win over Fremantle Dockers at Optus Stadium.

The Dogs need to bounce back with another loss making a top two spot very vulnerable with two or three teams chasing hard.

Western Bulldogs Team News


The Bulldogs have added Ed Richards, Josh Schache and Riley Garcia to an extended squad.
