Brisbane Lions vs Adelaide Crows Tips


The Brisbane Lions edged the Fremantle Dockers in a crucial 77-74 win that saw them bounce back from a heavy 96-55 loss at the hands of the Gold Coast Suns the week before.

The Adelaide Crows made it two wins in a row as they beat the Gold Coast Suns 89-61 in their last match. Can they now down the Lions in Brisbane? 

Head to Head


The Crows were able to secure the bragging rights the last time the pair came together as they won 95-78 to end a run of four wins in a row for the Lions.

In their last 10, the Lions have four wins, while the Crows have won six times. 

Brisbane Lions Form


The Brisbane Lions may sit in third on the ladder right now, but they have hit a tough run of form that has seen them lose two of their last four matches.

A tight 105-104 loss to the Melbourne Demons was followed by a battling win over the misfiring Geelong Cats. 

They were denied a second straight win as they were comfortably beaten 96-55 by the Gold Coast Suns before they downed the Fremantle Dockers 77-74.

Adelaide Crows Form 


The Adelaide Crows are doing their best to mount a late-season charge for a top eight spot, with two straight wins seeing them move to within four points of the GWS Giants in eighth. 

A win here could see the Crows move level on points with the Giants.

However, having lost their last six away matches in a row, the Crows need to improve on their road form.
