The 53rd Derby between Freo and West Coast gets underway on Sunday, and there’s a chance we might get a full house.

As far as the finals are concerned, this is a huge game with both clubs still looking a genuine chance.

West Coast can cement their spot with a 12th straight win over the Dockers, while Freo could potentially move inside the eight if results go their way.

The status of Josh Kennedy is still up in the air after the big man played through a knee injury last week, but given their track record against Freo over the years, it’s very hard to fade West Coast in this spot.

The absence of Nat Fyfe and Michael Walters was felt enormously last week in the Dockers’ blowout loss to the Lions, and there doesn’t appear to be enough depth in the back line to cope with this talented West Coast forward line, either.

West Coast has won the last three Derby’s by 30 points or more and they also own a strong 8-4 record on the back of a loss.

Verdict

There’s definitely scope for the Eagles to improve on last week’s nine-point loss to the Demons, and the Dockers look to be the perfect prey.

Best Bet: West Coast -14.5 Line @-111.11 at BetMGM - 1 Unit
