St Kilda vs GWS Giants Preview


St Kilda host the GWS Giants at the MCG in the Elimination Final and little separates the sides in the head to head betting.

The Saints have been solid without behind spectacular in 2023, finishing 6th on the ladder with 13 wins from their 23 games for the season. The Giants also come in with the same win-loss record and missed out on the home final by just 0.7 of a percent, the equivalent of under two goals.

GWS come in with the superior recent form, having won nine of their last 11 matches. They booked a finals berth by knocking over Carlton in Round 24 and it was Tom Green and Lachie Whitfield that found plenty of the footy, while Toby Greene and Jake Riccardi combined for seven goals.

St Kilda dropped their Round 24 clash to Brisbane by 12 points, a margin that could have been more were it not for some inaccuracy from the Lions in front of the big sticks. Tim Membrey booted three goals and the Saints are set to welcome back Max King, who was missed in attack against the Lions.

Interestingly, the two sides have never met at the MCG. GWS have played at the venue just once in 2023 for a loss to the ladder leaders, Collingwood, while St Kilda are one from two at the home of footy this year.

Taking recent form into account, and the Giants ability to perform at a number of different venues this season, it might be the Sydney based side that have enough in store to get the job done on Saturday.

St Kilda vs GWS Stats
