Adelaide Crows v West Coast Eagles Tips, Predictions and Match Preview - Eagles in a close one

  • Adelaide host West Coast at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday. 
  • Here is our preview of the Round 10 fixture

One of the key games of AFL Round 10 sees the Adelaide Crows play host to the West Coast Eagles at the Adelaide Oval. 

The Saturday May 25 encounter gets underway at 4.05pm ACST and all the action can be seen on Channel 7 and Fox Footy. 

Match Preview


The two sides currently sit in the top eight with 6th placed West Coast just shading Adelaide, who are 7th.

The Eagles have won six of their nine games this season, while the Crows have won five. Last year's premiers, West Coast, come off a hard fought 16 point win over Melbourne and have won their past three. 

Adelaide went down to the Brisbane Lions by a solitary point at the GABBA last weekend. They had won four games prior to that. 

Little separates the two sides in the head to head betting. Adelaide enjoy the home ground advantage and their midfielders should find plenty of the footy. The Crows are the second ranked team for total disposals this year, while the Eagles are 18th. 

Rory Laird, Rory Sloane and the Crouch brothers feature in the top 40 of the competition for total disposals, while Dom Sheed is the only Eagle that features in that group. 

But West Coast should get on top in the aerial duels with Jeremy McGovern and Shannon Hurn set to patrol the backline, while Josh Kennedy looms as a presence up forward. The spearhead booted four goals against Melbourne last weekend and has kicked 20 for the year. 

Selection News


Matt Crouch faces a fitness test for Adelaide, while Josh Jenkins, Paul Seedsman and Richard Douglas are among those that will be considered. That trio played in the SANFL last weekend. West Coast are likely to lose Daniel Venables due to concussion. 

Match Odds


Adelaide Crows $1.58 
West Coast Eagles $1.95

*correct at the time of writing

West Coast have claimed two of the past three games between the two sides but it was Adelaide last year at the Adelaide Oval by 10 points. Taylor Walker booted three for the winners, while Sam Jacobs and Matt Crouch were dominant. 

The Eagles have an excellent record at the Adelaide Oval, winning seven of nine. That includes four wins against Port Adelaide. They are two from four against Adelaide at the venue. The Crows have won three of five at their home ground this season. 

Prediction and Tips


This shapes as a close one but West Coast should have the class in what is an important game for both sides.
