Western Bulldogs vs West Coast Eagles Tips
Both sides kicked off round one with a win next to their name The Dogs will start favourites in this match due to their home ground advantage, but West Coast have played very well at this ground and could cause an upset at a price.
- West Coast Eagles have won 5 of the last 6 matches against Western Bulldogs.
- West Coast Eagles have won their last 4 games at Marvel Stadium.
- West Coast defeated Western Bulldogs the last two times they met at Marvel Stadium.
Head to Head
Of their last six clashes, West Coast have won five times. The Bulldogs did win the latest meeting in September last year at Metricon Stadium by two points.
Western Bulldogs Form
Western Bulldogs started the season by beating Collingwood by 16 points in Round 1 last week.
The Bulldogs game is a lot about their midfield with the likes of Bontempelli, Dunkley, Macrae, Treloar and Smith all running amuck and changing off the half-forward line.
Seven of their midfielders gathered more footy than Collingwood's leading disposal getter which says a lot about how strong they really are between half-back and half-forward.
With the home ground advantage against West Coast, they do deserve to be favourites but are very short in the market.
Western Bulldogs Team News
The Bulldogs make one change with Rhylee West dropping down to the emergencies.
Ed Richards has had surgery on his ankle after injuring himself in the VFL last week, so that is half the season gone for him.
Riley Garcia and Mitch Hannan are expected to return to full training in preparation for matches in one to two weeks time.

The grew into the game after a relatively slow start at Optus Stadium, but were ultimately too good.
Without the likes of Elliot Yeo and Luke Shuey, two of the club's key midfielders in the list, they will need to do a lot of work to stop the Dogs out of the middle.
