Gold Coast Suns vs St Kilda Tips


Gold Coast have managed to string two wins in a row together, which was after a big win over Sydney at home and a defeat of Collingwood at the MCG.

St Kilda have been very patchy this season and they were too classy for Hawthorn.

We have seen some very close battles between the two sides in their recent clashes and another is predicted with Tribet the best tip.

  • Gold Coast Suns have won their last 2 matches.
  • St Kilda have won the last 5 matches against Gold Coast Suns.
  • The margin in their last 4 head to heads has been 4 points or less.

Head to Head


St Kilda have won the last five clashes against Gold Coast, but the margin in the last four has been four points or less. The Suns won four in a row before the Saints' current run.

Gold Coast Suns Form


The Suns have won their last two matches, comfortably beating Sydney Swans in what was an impressive display of footy two weeks ago.

They then travelled to Melbourne and beat Collingwood in what was an upset victory at the MCG.

The Suns seem to have found a bit of rhythm and what I am most impressed about it the fact that they can win away, as I had marked them as a home only side.

Back at home and against a side which has been up and down all season, they are the deserved favourites in this match-up.

St Kilda Form


St Kilda are one of the strangest sides in the AFL at present following a rollercoaster start to the season.

Last week's form with a 69-point win over Hawthorn said they should be a top eight side, while the week prior they were smashed by Port Adelaide and were not even competitive in a 55-point defeat.

Saints had one of their stronger sides on the park last week and the key was Dan Butler, who is playing in good form.

When Butler is firing, generally St Kilda are hard to beat. But can they do it against the Suns?

St Kilda Team News


Jake Carlisle is not fit enough to play so the Saints go in unchanged.
