Greater Western Sydney Giants vs Essendon Bombers Preview

The Giants will have their sights set on the top eight this week having now won three of their last five.

GWS made short work of the Crows last Saturday in their 67-point victory as they now return home to Sydney for a timely clash against the Bombers.

After claiming a dominant ANZAC Day win, the Bombers fell short in the fourth quarter to Carlton last week in a game Ben Rutten would probably like to have back.

The Dons were their own worst enemy in the final term as some ill-discipline got in the way, but they should fancy themselves this week after only losing by four points to the Giants last time they met.

As far as betting goes, it’s difficult to know what you’re going to get from these two sides each week, but when you consider the Bombers are 2-2 at Spotless Stadium, an upset wouldn’t surprise.

That said, the Giants seem to have found their stride over the last month and they should sense the importance of this game with a chance to level up their record to 4-4.

The last two games between these sides have been decided by no more than a goal, so with all that in mind, a Tribet looks to be in order.
