The Giants and Tigers were two of the biggest winners to emerge from Round 21, setting up what is sure to be a hard-fought battle on Friday night at Marvel.
Greater Western Sydney’s rousing win over the Cats in Geelong last week has left them in firm control of their finals destiny from here on out, while the Tigers still have a pulse thanks to a blowout win over North Melbourne.
Richmond has opened -9.5 point favourites in betting, largely due to the uncertainty surrounding star Giants forward Toby Greene.
GWS is set to appeal his two-match suspension for last week’s elbow on Patrick Dangerfield, and if successful, it wouldn’t be surprising if the odds swing closer to even money.
There’s no denying the Tigers looked sharp last week in their win over North, but it’s difficult to read too much into a win over the bottom dwellers.
GWS, meanwhile, has been playing some very strong footy of late, mixing a pair of wins over Geelong and Essendon with a two respectable efforts against Port Adelaide and Sydney over the last month.
The Giants are also set to receive a boost on attack with Josh Kelly and Jesse Hogan a chance to play, while Stephen Coniglio and Jacob Hopper could also provide some much-needed experience.
