Collingwood Magpies vs GWS Giants Tips

Collingwood are looking to edge to within a single win of securing both the regular season crown and a triumph in the Grand Finals, with the Magpies outstanding this year.

The GWS Giants humbled the Port Adelaide Power in their semi-final last week to set up this mouthwatering clash with the Magpies, but will this be a step too far for them?

Head To Head

The Magpies hammered the Giants 120-55 in their last meeting in May, with this backing up a tighter 88-77 win back in June of 2022. 

In their last 10, the Magpies only have three wins in their last 10 against the Giants, with their opponents notching seven wins. 

Collingwood Magpies Form 

The Magpies were excellent across the home and away season as they secured 18 wins from a possible 23, allowing them to top the ladder and secure the minor premiership.

Some questioned whether a run of three defeats in their final four matches would ultimately cost them their chance at Grand Final success.

The Magpies managed to bounce back with a crushing 101-31 win over the Essendon Bombers in the final round to wrap up the minor flag. 

This was immediately followed by a hard-fought 60-53 win over the Melbourne Demons to see the Magpies move straight into the Prelims and a step away from the Grand Final.

Collingwood Magpies Team News

Nick Daicos has been declared fit following a knee issue and he will likely slot in for Taylor Adams following his hamstring issue.

GWS Giants Form 

The GWS Giants may have finished down in seventh on the ladder, but they have shown that placement in the home and away season often means little when heading into the finals. 

Their 13 regular season wins were followed by an interstate victory over St Kilda (101-77) in the Elimination Final.

They then went one better in last week's Semi-Final and secured a stunning 93-70 win over a Port Adelaide Power side that finished in third spot on the ladder.

GWS Giants Team News

The Giants are looking good following their latest win with no new injuries to contend with. 

GWS Giants Team List

B: Buckley, Taylor, Idun
HB: Ash, Himmelberg, Whitfield
C: Callaghan, Green, Kelly
H: Bedford, Riccardi, Daniels
F: Lloyd, Hogan, Greene
FOL: Briggs, Ward, Coniglio
I/C: Cumming, Perryman, Keeffe, Brown
EMG: Haynes, Angwin, O’Halloran, Preuss
IN: None
OUT: O’Halloran (Sub)


While the Giants have enjoyed a giant-killing or two this term, I cannot see them defeating a Collingwood side that looks destined to reach the Grand Finals this year.
