Western Bulldogs vs Gold Coast Suns Tips

The Suns have put together back-to-back wins over top five sides and look for the hat-trick against the inconsistent Dogs. Gold Coast have a poor record in this fixture though and I'm tipping a home win.

Given their recent matches have been rather close, I am keen to back them by 1-39 points in what is going to be a closer match than expected.

  • Western Bulldogs' Aaron Naughton has kicked 3+ goals in his last 2 matches.
  • Western Bulldogs have won 8 of their last 9 matches against the Gold Coast Suns.
  • Gold Coast Suns have covered the line in 4 of their last 5 matches against the Western Bulldogs.

Head to Head

Western Bulldogs have won the last three matches against the Gold Coast Suns and eight of the last nine.

The games have been rather close including when just 11 points seperated the sides last year.

Western Bulldogs Form

The Bulldogs are one of the most inconsistent sides in the AFL right now and sit at a frustrating 4-5 for the season.

They are on a loss/win sequence this season and, after a 99-51 victory over Collingwood last week, they are due for a defeat in the run continues.
