GWS Giants vs Melbourne Demons Tips


GWS Giants face a must-win game and they can make the most of being at Manuka Oval. The Giants are tipped with a +9.5 start and to win outright.

  • GWS Giants have lost their last 5 matches.
  • GWS Giants have won 4 of their last 5 home matches against Melbourne Demons.
  • Melbourne Demons have won their last 4 matches.

Head to Head


Melbourne Demons hold a 7-6 head to head record from 13 previous clashes with GWS Giants.

The Demons edged ahead when winning last year's only meeting. The Dees won the final quarter by 12 points to seal a 79-74 victory at the Gabba.

GWS Giants Form


GWS Giants find themselves in a tricky spot after losing their opening two games and with a tough fixture list ahead.

Having lost the opening two games of the season, the Giants will see this as must-win with Collingwood and Sydney Swans clashes following in the next two rounds.

Having lost a struggle in wet conditions 87-78 in Round 1 at home to St Kilda, GWS were comfortably handled 87-56 last week by the Fremantle Dockers in Perth.

GWS Giants Team News


The Giants will have to do with Sam Reid, who is suspended for two games for his bump on Fremantle's Nat Fyfe last week.

Tom Green was left out last week but is expected to return.

An ankle injury has kept Jake Riccardi out of the opening two rounds, but he could feature against the Demons.

Melbourne Demons Form


The Demons have started with a 2-0 record from two comprehensive wins in the opening two rounds.

In their season opener, Melbourne weren't as fluent as they could have been but still beat the Fremantle Dockers comfortably 80-58 at the MCG.

Last weekend, they forced St Kilda into mistakes en route to a 91-73 over Spud's Game against St Kilda at Marvel Stadium.

Melbourne Demons Team News


Jake Melksham and Michael Hibberd both came through a VFL return last week and come into the picture for the Demons.

Ben Brown and Sam Weideman are still two to four weeks away from a comeback.

Verdict

The Giants have been in poor form, while the Demons have started the season well. I'm willing to forgive the Giants a tough opening stint and back them at underdog odds.

The Demons have lost four of their last five away games against the Giants, who can get their season up and running at Manuka Oval.
