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.

West Coast Eagles Form


West Coast did what they needed to Gold Coast at home last week with the Eagles winning their season opener by 25 points.

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.

West Coast Eagles Team News

Elliot Yeo still has no timeline on what he is expected to be back from his groin injury.
