Gold Coast Suns vs St Kilda Saints Preview

The stage is set for a very intriguing clash between the Gold Coast and St Kilda on Saturday.

The Suns shocked the footy landscape last week by defeating Collingwood by 24 points at the MCG, while the Saints also went big with a whopping 69-point win over the hapless Hawks.

To make things even more interesting, the winner of this game could potentially venture inside the top eight if results go their way.

The Suns and the Saints are both tied on 12 points at 3-4, but as far as betting goes, it appears the bookies are giving the slight edge to St Kilda based on last week’s efforts.

Recent history also suggests the Saints are the team to beat with five straight wins to their name over the Suns dating back to 2017, but that isn’t to say the Gold Coast don’t stand a chance.

As far as recent results go, the Suns look to be the more polished side after belting two top eight contenders (Sydney and Collingwood) in recent weeks.

Taking nothing away from St Kilda, it’s difficult to read too much into a big result over a rebuilding Hawthorn side that has struggled to string together four quarters all year.

When you consider four of the last five games between these two sides have been decided by no more than four points, don’t be surprised if this one turns into another nail-biter.
