The Western Bulldogs have dominated GWS in recent years having won 6 of their last 8 clashes. Over the past 3 seasons the scores have been close but it wasn’t until the Round 20 game last year that GWS were finally able to get one back in the regular season.

The Giants are on a 2 game skid whilst the Bulldogs are coming off a 91 point thrashing of the Tigers. The bookies have pencilled in GWS as the favourites and we tend to agree despite the historical head to head record. The problem is though that the Bulldogs have better numbers in the majority of the statistical measures, this is purely a gut instinct play. 

  • In the most recent Giants win against the Dogs they exceeded their season averages in Uncontested Possessions and Handballs
  • GWS also succeeded in laying 22 Tackles Inside 50 to the Dogs 7
  • The last three clashes played between these teams at Giants Stadium average Game Totals of 196pts
  • These teams are a combined 7-3 to the Over in their last 5 games

Head to Head 


The Giants and Bulldogs have met in 7 regular season games and 1 finals game since the beginning of the 2019 season. GWS won the most recent matchup in Round 20 last year as well as the Elimination Final in 2019. Otherwise the Bulldogs dominate the head to head having won the remaining 6 games.

2 of the last 3 games played between these clubs have ended with margins of 5 points. Outside of those though the average winning margin for any team climbs to 36 points.

The Under has hit in the last 3 games straight whilst the numbers for the last 8 games sits at 4-4.

The Giants have lost their last two games after getting out the gates well going 5-0 to start the season. Since the win streak GWS have gone 1-4 with all losses coming by double digits.

Their Kicking rate was down in the most recent loss to Essendon which also saw their Inside 50 numbers plummet compared to their season average. The Giants were restricted to 37% Possession in the match, a number that was reduced to 23% for the final 10 minutes of the game effectively strangling out the chase.
