Adelaide Crows vs GWS Giants Tips


The Crows and Giants will butt heads in an important match for the context of both sides' seasons after losses last week.

Adelaide blew a five goal lead to go down by three points at Hawthorn, while the Giants were back to their best against Collingwood and Sydney Swans in the last three weeks. 

GWS can bounce back from a loss to leaders Western Bulldogs last week, and edge the Crows.

  • The last 4 matches between Adelaide Crows and GWS Giants have been shared 2-2.
  • The last 5 clashes between Adelaide Crows and GWS Giants have had a 1-39 points winning margin.
  • The away side has won each of GWS Giants' last 4 matches by 1-39 points.

Head to Head


Adelaide Crows lead the head to head count 10-3, with the Giants' last win over them coming in 2018 at Manuka Oval.

Adelaide have won their last two clashes at Adelaide Oval, but GWS won two in row prior to that.

Adelaide Crows Form


Adelaide have won three matches this season and are on a much better trajectory than where they were at this point last season.

The Crows do come into this game on the back of a frustrating loss having blown a five-goal lead to lose by three points to Hawthorn last weekend in Tasmania.

Two players that have been crucial to their success. Ben Keays has turned into a gun midfielder after being de-listed from the Brisbane Lions, and Taylor Walker has been their target down forward, currently leading the Coleman Medal race.

Riley Thiltorpe made his long awaited debut last week, kicking five goals and proving rather unlucky not to win the Rising Star nomination for the week.

Adelaide Crows Team News


Sam Berry returns to the side this week in one of three changes along with rookie defender Nick Murray and David Mackay.

Will Hamill, Tom Lynch and Luke Brown are all injured, while Darcy Fogarty is left out.

GWS Giants Form


The Giants kicked off in poor form, dropping their opening three matches.

But they followed that by claiming the points in two of their last three, beating Collingwood and Sydney Swans - two sides they were not expected to beat.

The Giants took on the Western Bulldogs last week and were no match for the ladder leaders, but still held their heads high in going down by 39 points in Canberra.

Tom Green has been the crucial element to their side, one of their younger players getting a lot of footy and looking as if a Rising Star nomination is imminent for him.
