Essendon Bombers vs Sydney Swans

July 27, 2018 7:50 pm @ Etihad Stadium
Odds: Bombers $1.78, Swans $2.05

Betting preview of the Bombers versus the Swans at Etihad Stadium on Friday.

Bombers Form:

The Bombers were victorious in Round 18 as they beat the Dockers 99-70. They are are sitting in the bottom eight after a 9-8 record and this could be a season defining matchup.

Last 5 Matches:
WON by 29 – Bombers 13.21.99, Dockers 11.4.70 – Round 18, 2018
WON by 44 – Bombers 13.17.95, Suns 6.15.51 – Round 17, 2018

WON by 17 – Bombers 19.11.125, Kangaroos 16.12.108 – Round 15, 2018
WON by 28 – Bombers 12.8.80, Eagles 6.16.52 – Round 14, 2018

Swans Form:

The shock of the season saw the Swans easily beaten against the Suns last round by 24 points at the SCG. While they’re still in the top 4, a tough run home could see them miss the eight.

Last 5 Matches:
LOST by 24 – Swans 8.16.64, Suns 12.16.88 – Round 18, 2018
WON by 6 – Swans 16.8.104, Kangaroos 15.8.98 – Round 17, 2018

WON by 15 – Swans 10.12.72, Eagles 7.15.57 – Round 13, 2018

Head to Head (Since 2010) – Swans: 10-1
Last 2 Meetings:

Swans won by 65 points – Elimination Final, 2017 – Swans 19.7.121, Bombers 8.8.56 @ the SCG
Swans won by 1 point – Round 14, 2017 – Swans 11.20.86, Bombers 12.13.85 @ the SCG

Prediction:

Obviously, the Swans were terrible last week. However, they really enjoy playing at Etihad and Franklin loves playing the Bombers. On the other hand, the Bombers are finding form at the right end of the season. So I like the overs in what should be a high scoring affair under the roof.
