Adelaide vs West Coast, Round 11 2024 - Expert Prediction


If Saturdays are for the boys then Sundays are for the dog… the Underdog that is. West Coast will take on the Crows and it is all about the Harley-Hype with the number one draft pick leading the Eagles to another victory this season.

West Coast shocked everyone with their 35-point win over Melbourne last weekend and they will take that show to Adelaide and take down the Crows who despite putting up a fight, keep failing to live up to their potential and are now missing the key target up front, Izak Rankine. 

The tactic will be similar to that in the Hawthorn v Brisbane match, a unit on the underdog money line and a bunch on West Coast to cover the 28.5 points as the favourites.

The Eagles are not the same beast outside of Optus, but they will put up a fight and if they play the tactical game they did against the Demons last week the $4.70 upset is there.

  • Adelaide have won just 1 of 5 matches at Adelaide Oval this season.
  • West Coast had 21 more entries inside 50 than Melbourne last week.
  • West Coast had 30 more Uncontested possessions than Melbourne last week.
  • Adelaide are ranked outside the top-ten in Inside 50’s and Marks Inside 50 this season.

Head to Head 


Adelaide have won the past four contests against West Coast over the past two seasons, including the previous 2 matches at Adelaide Oval.

The Crows handed the Eagles a 122-point hiding last season when the played in the City of Churches and also got up by 45 points in round 24 at Optus Stadium.

Adelaide could be the best-worst team in the AFL or you could look at like they are failing to reach the expectations that they have on them and not playing at the potential that they have, especially on paper.

The Crows fought back galiantly against Collingwood last weekend, coming from 30 points behind in the second quarter to make it a nailbiting finish with a couple of lead changes in the dying moments. 

The 4-point loss was another opportunity missed for Adelaide and with the loss of their leading goal scorer Izak Rankine this week they are going to need to get some more production from Tex Walker, who has been a little off this season.

Adelaide Team News


Izak Rankine suffered a hamstring injury last week and will be out for up to three weeks.

Elliot Himmelberg had surgery on his cheek and is out at an undisclosed time.

What actually happened at Optus Stadium last weekend?

West Coast pulled off the biggest upset of the season, beating Melbourne by 35 points and Harley Reid officially stamped his authority on the AFL (if he hadn’t already) by out muscling and out-classing the Melbourne midfield stars.

Reid has lived up to every bit of the hype after drafting number one in 2023 , summing up just how he is going in the third quarter of the game when he bumped off big names Clayton Oliver and Christian Petracca nailing the ball inside 50 for a mark and goal by Jack Darling, to then later on take a one-handed bouncing ball inside 50 himself to get a clear run and kick a goal himself to end the quarter.

West Coast Team News


Elliot Yeo has been cleared and will lineup against Adelaide, overcoming his groin injury.

Matt Flynn will get some minutes in the VFL this week before being considered in the top squad.
