Gold Coast Suns v Carlton Tips, Predictions and Match Preview - Suns to keep Blues winless for 2019

Trent Orwin 10 Apr 2019
  • Gold Coast have won their past two
  • Carlton yet to win this year

The Gold Coast Suns have won two in a row heading into Sunday’s game against a winless Carlton at Metricon Stadium.

The action gets underway at 2:40pm and will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 3.

Match Preview


The Gold Coast Suns narrowly defeated Fremantle in Round 2 and capitalised on that momentum with an upset victory over the Western Bulldogs. 

Carlton are 0-3 and desperate for a win. They have lost by 33 points to Richmond, 16 points to Port Adelaide and 19 points to Sydney. 

Not too many would have predicted the Suns to be 2-1 after three rounds and they could make it three wins when they host Carlton. They are playing well for a team that only won four games in 2018. At the same time, they meet last year’s Wooden Spooners in Carlton who only won twice. 

It is a difficult match to predict and it could go either way. Suns forward Alex Sexton has already kicked 10 goals for the season and they will be looking towards him to kick more against the Blues. The Suns will need to keep Patrick Cripps quiet and the Blues star midfielder is already averaging 30.3 disposals per game. 

Team News


The Gold Coast Suns have nothing to report from their win over the Bulldogs.

Carlton ruckmen Matthew Kreuzer and Andrew Phillips will undergo fitness tests. Mitch McGovern and Charlie Curnow are small chances to return from hamstring and knee injuries respectively. 

Match Odds


Gold Coast $1.68
Carlton $2.20

* Correct at time of writing

Stats


The two teams have split their past four matches. In Round 19 last year, Carlton defeated the Gold Coast by 35 points. The Suns kicked five goals and 14 behinds for the match. 

Hit-outs for the season so far could be a crucial stat in this match with the Suns averaging 54 for the year compared to the Blues’ 33. 

Prediction and Tips


Very tough to be confident about either side here but give the edge to the Suns.
