The Crows are extremely inconsistent this season and are lacking in ability to stop their opponents getting away from them. None of their losses have been complete blowouts but there have been games where they have allowed the opposition to dictate terms for too long with the game essentially slipping out of their grasp.

Sydney are a team that take their chances and run with them, as we seen last weekend against the Cats. The slightest sliver of hope can turn into a cascading waterfall of goals if given the chance, which is exactly what Adelaide offer on the regular.

History tells us this match-up is usually not a blowout so the best bet here is the Swans 1-39.

  • Favourites are winning at a 63% rate this season with the 1-39 Winning Margin hitting at 72%
  • Adelaide allow the 2nd most Stoppage Clearances to their opposition per game at 27.8, Sydney allow the least at 20.3 per game
  • Since the beginning of May, the Under holds a 29-22 advantage in the Game Totals of all AFL games.
  • 4 of the 5 games for Sydney in which the Game Total has gone Under have been against teams currently in the bottom 8

Head to Head 

Since the beginning of the 2019 season these teams have met 5 times with Sydney winning the last 4 in a row. 

The single game played last season was a one point thriller that ended in controversy following a point that later showed to be a goal. The previous two games played each finished with 33 point margins in favour of the Swans with all 5 of the games played coming in with 1-39 Win Margins.

The Under hit in last year’s matchup but the Over holds the advantage 3-2 across the last five games.

Sydney have also covered the line on 3 occasions against the Crows in the same period.

The Crows are up there as one of the most inconsistent teams of the season so far. Four weeks ago they pushed the defending premiers to within 4 points then blasted the Eagles by 99 to then turn around and lose back to back games against the other also-rans in Hawthorn and Richmond. 

Looking at the statistics from last weekend's game you would think Adelaide had won the game with them hitting their season averages in most spots. But it was their defence that failed to stop the Tigers from scoring, putting up little resistance to the second worst scoring team in the league.

Tex Walker and Izak Rankine will be given time to prove their fitness before teams are named later in the week. Elliot Himmelberg is still a week away with a facial injury whilst Kieran Strachan and Brayden Cook are expected to play despite their niggling injuries.

The Swans have lost only 1 game all season and come into this one against the Crows with an 8 game win streak. 

Last weekend against the Cats, Sydney were all but out of the game halfway through the second quarter as their opponent had built up a 35 point lead. But the red and white army barracked their team back into it and the lead was chipped away throughout the 3rd. 

Sydney then surged away in the final quarter, eventually winning the game by 30 points. 

Sydney Swans Team News

Robbie Fox is in line to make a return from a shoulder injury this weekend if he gets through training. Captain Callum Mills is still a week or two away from returning and with the run of form the team is in they could ease him back into the fray via VFL. Corey Warner is in the same boat and could line up for the reserves this weekend as he recovers from an ankle injury.

Considering the Swans last and only loss came against a struggling bottom dweller it wouldn't surprise me if this one got away from them. But all the numbers are pointing to a Sydney win with a solid but but extravagant margin.
