GWS v Geelong tips, predictions & odds analysis, AFL Rd 1, 2020

Welcome to our Greater Western Sydney v Geelong tips, prediction and odds analysis. We will run you through the betting, selection and team news before the 7.40pm start on Saturday night.

The Giants, who finished runners-up last season, have been installed hot favourites to beat the Cats, who reached a preliminary final last year, at Giants Stadium.

Of course, the Giants should have a steely resolve to make amends in this season after they were humiliated by Richmond in the grand final at the MCG.

They have a star-studded list but question marks remain over coach Leon Cameron and the way his game plan works under extreme pressure.

It’s one thing to be freewheeling and beat teams by big margins during the season; they need to find a game plan that can stand up in September.

We expect them to get their season off to a winning start at home, but if this match was in Geelong we would happily tip the Cats.

We’ll run you through our GWS Giants vs Geelong Cats betting predictions, tips and odds analysis for their AFL Round 1 clash.

GWS v Geelong best bet tips

Looking at the betting on the Giants-Cats game, we think there may be less between the teams than the bookies think. Be sure to shop around our recommended betting sites to make sure you get the best price.

Geelong +12.5 points at $1.90

Small gamblers are not going to get rich off this option, but it should not be forgotten how well Geelong have played over so many years. They are an experienced group. Their challenge will be kicking a winning score, but their defence has been first rate for years.

Tom Hawkins top goal scorer at $4.75

The super-sized Cat is the No.1 target for his team, while the opposition have three established tall forwards. This might mean the Tomahawk can kick the most goals in the match even in a losing side, as the Giants seem more likely to share the goals around. Hawkins does not need many chances to kick a bag of five.

GWS Giants v Geelong prediction 21/3/2020

Unlike the bookies we are expecting a close clash here, with the Giants just falling over the line. Both teams are first-up for the season so there is always an element of uncertainty. GWS should finish the season in the top four, so they won’t want any early slip-ups at home.
