West Coast vs Carlton Match Up

Against a Hawthorn team who were struggling to a score in prior matches, Carlton put in a shocker to concede 14 goals against the Hawks.

They have been below their best in their prior two matches where they only narrowly got across the line against the lowly Kangaroos in round eight which followed a close defeat to Port Adelaide.

West Coast, on the other hand, have got their mojo back where after a very ordinary time of things when starting in the Gold Coast Hub, have now stormed into $5 premiership favoritism with Sportsbet for this season.

A wet Sunday is predicted in Perth and with bigger and more senior bodies of the Eagles, that should be able to favour them especially on their home deck.

The ladder is still rather congested as it stands, so there's plenty riding on this game for both sides but with the Eagles aiming to stay in top four contention, they can't afford to drop this one.
