It’s getting increasingly more difficult to take West Coast (8-8, 32 points) after a diabolical three weeks, but we are going to give them one more chance against an Adelaide team that has run out of puff.
The Eagles are aiming to bounce back after getting a 70-60 home beating at the hands of bottom side North Melbourne in the last round.
The Crows (5-11, 20 points) are 2-10 since Round 4, worse than any team in the competition. They only managed to score 21 points last week against the Bombers, a team that prior to Round 17 were ranked 15th in the competition for points against.
The Eagles have won six of the last seven against Adelaide including the last four, covering the line in five of the last seven between the two teams.
Adelaide have covered the line just once in their last six games at Adelaide Oval, and although West Coast travel really poorly they have done quite well at Adelaide Oval in recent times, winning six of their last seven at the ground, covering the line in their last six there.
