Brisbane Lions vs Western Bulldogs Tips


A great Thursday night battle awaits with the Lions taking on the Bulldogs at the Gabba. Brisbane were defeated easily last weekm which does give the Bulldogs every chance, but home advantage makes the Lions the play. 

  • Brisbane Lions have won 15 of their last 16 matches at the Gabba.
  • Brisbane Lions have won 6 of their last 8 home matches against Western Bulldogs.
  • Brisbane Lions' Hugh McCluggage has kicked 1+ goal in his last 6 matches against the Western Bulldogs.

Head to Head


The Bulldogs lead their recent head to head count 7-2 against the Lions, inclduing wins in their last two clashes.

Their last match saw them come away one-point winners at the Gabba in September of last year, with Bailey Smith kicking the winning goal.

Brisbane Lions Form


The Lions were well and truly brought back down to earth last week with a 10-goal thumping from Melbourne Demons - and it should have been more.

It means that Brisbane have traded wins and losses across their last six games during an inconsistent spell.

All three defeats have come on the road, however, and expect them to come out a different side in front of their home crowd this week.
