Western Bulldogs vs. GWS

Friday, Etihad Stadium 7:50pm, AEST

Who could forget the 2016 preliminary final between these two sides. It was marked as potentially the greatest preliminary finals ever played, and here’s hoping that this edition can somewhat live up to those lofty standards.

The Bulldogs appear to have some of their “mojo” back, while the Giants have recorded two wins in a row after a poor run of form. The loss of Easton Wood will hurt Luke Beveridge’s side, especially considering the potential power of the Giants’ forward six.

The fact the game is at Etihad will no doubt play in the Dogs favour, however, it seems like too much is stacked against them.

Tip: Giants by 22
