St Kilda vs GWS Betting Tips, Preview & Odds
St Kilda take on GWS at the Gabba on Friday (Getty)

GWS Giants are fighting for their lives to stay in the finals picture and must beat St Kilda at The Gabba on Friday night.

For St Kilda to drop out of the eight, they need to lose by 50 or more points which is a hard scenario to see happening with this very competitive team.

We are expecting the result to go the way of St Kilda, but this is not a chips in game due to GWS's inconsistency and need to win this match.

St Kilda Form & Team News

St Kilda looked to have the match shot to pieces against West Coast last week, coming back to lead half-way through the last quarter, before West Coast lifted again to win the game.

For seventh-placed Saints to drop out of a finals berth, they will need to be beaten by 50+ points in this match which does look unlikely based on how competitive they have been this season.

If they play with the same spirit as last week, GWS most likely find the Saints too good.

GWS Form & Team News

The Giants are the most inconsistent side in the competition - one of the best when they are on it, but one of the worst when they are off.

More consistency throughout their season would have secured their spot in the top eight by now, but due to multiple poor performances, last year's beaten Grand Finalists must win this match to stand a chance of playing finals footy.

Expect captain Stephen Coniglio to come back into the side after controversially being dropped last week.

St Kilda vs GWS Match Up

The key match up in this match looks between Jack Steele and Josh Kelly.

Both are star players of the competition and are both hard ball winners in a contested scenario.

Steele has had his breakout year and will be ready to send himself to the elite level come the start of next year, while Kelly has been there for a couple of years now and will show why he is one of the best on Friday night.

These two players hitting the scoreboard could be the difference between the sides. Whoever can have the most score involvements could come out on top in this battle.
