GWS Giants v Brisbane Lions tips
Our AFL betting expert has scoured the odds and found several value GWS Giants v Brisbane Lions tips for Saturday’s game.
GWS -3.5 points/match total over 129.5 points
The Giants have been extremely disappointing, especially their midfield. But they will have been read the riot act leading into this and they have so many quality players we expect a reaction. They have a fantastically talented forward line and they are due to fire.
Jeremy Cameron most goals
Cameron has been one of the top forwards in the game for a long time now but has not been at his brilliant best this season. Cameron has kicked 11 goals in six matches. At some stage he will cut loose with a big bag. This market was not framed at the time of writing but check on match day or back Cameron in a market to kicked four goals or more.
GWS Giants v Brisbane Lions prediction 18/7/20
The Giants have won seven of the past eight matches between these teams. Their midfield has been their Achille’s heel so far this season while Brisbane’s has been superb. Expect Toby Greene to step up and play plenty of midfield minutes and to lead from the front. Our final tip: GWS Giants to win by 12 points.
