Port Adelaide v West Coast betting tips, predictions & odds update, AFL Rd 4 2020
This Port Adelaide v West Coast match throws together the most in-form team in the AFL against arguably the most out-of-form team.
It is the first match of a double-header of sorts at Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast, with the later match the Gold Coast Suns v Fremantle from 7.40pm.
West Coast have struggled during their time in the Gold Coast hub, being embarrassed by the Gold Coast Suns and then easily brushed aside by the Brisbane Lions last weekend to slump to a 1-2 record.
While a 1-3 start to the season would not kill their season, it would leave them with no margin for error. And in round five a blockbuster clash looms against Richmond at Metricon Stadium before the Eagles can return to Perth. So the 2018 premiers have a lot on the line against the Power.

West Coast hope to regain defensive anchor Jeremy McGovern for this clash after suspension and an ankle injury suffered at training, while small forward Liam Ryan is expected to be fit after suffering a corked calf late in the match against the Lions.
Port Adelaide are sitting pretty at the top of the table with three wins from three starts, but this is the most highly rated opposition they have faced after wins against Gold Coast, Adelaide Crows and Fremantle last time out.
The Power have lost exciting youngster Xavier Duursma to a hamstring strain but will go in as firm favourites.

Power v Eagles tips
Our AFL betting expert has scoured the odds for some value and found several value Power v Eagles tips for Saturday afternoon’s game.
Power -8.5 points/match total over 129.5 points
This double is returning around $3.80 and with a clear day forecast we expect this match to be a fairly free-flowing affair. Surely the Eagles will break the shackles a little bit even though it’s difficult to see them turn over the ultra-confident Power.
Charlie Dixon 3 or more goals
The Port Power full-forward looked in great touch last week against Freo and looks fitter than he has for several season. He is of course a former Suns player so knows this ground so well. He could be in for another big games against the Eagles.
Port Adelaide Power v West Coast Eagles prediction 27/6/2020
The last time these teams met Port Adelaide tore the Eagles apart in the wet in Perth, with midfielders Ollie Wines and Travis Boak doing much of the damage. The Eagles need to respond this week to put themselves back in the mix but it looks a huge task the way they have been exposed by the Suns and Lions in consecutive matches. The Power to win by 15 points.
