Port Adelaide v Gold Coast Suns Tips, Predictions and Match Preview - Suns can cover the line

  • Port Adelaide host the Gold Coast Suns at Adelaide Oval
  • The line is 36.5 points

Sunday afternoon football sees Port Adelaide host the Gold Coast Suns at Adelaide Oval. 

Fox Footy will showcase the Round 9 match live with the first bounce scheduled for 1:10pm AEST.

Match Preview


Port Adelaide have dropped back-to-back games with losses to Collingwood by 39 points and Adelaide by 20 points. They sit 11th on the ladder with four wins and four losses.

The Gold Coast Suns are 14th in comparison with three wins and five losses. Four of those losses have been in succession and they will be trying to end their slump on Sunday.

Port Adelaide need to be better in front of goals with 9.14 against Adelaide. They were 3.12 at three-quarter time before kicking six goals in the final term. The potential return of Robbie Gray is huge for the Power. 

The Suns threw away a great chance at beating Melbourne as their six-point lead disappeared in the final minute of play with the Demons kicking a goal and behind to snatch victory at Metricon Stadium. 

Port Adelaide will likely prove too good for the Suns in the end but I don’t think they will blow them away. 

Team News


Robbie Gray could return from a hand injury after missing two weeks. Port Adelaide will lose Ryan Burton for 3-4 weeks with a hamstring injury. Brad Ebert will be tested to see if he can return from concussion.

Gold Coast lose Sean Lemmens for around eight weeks after re-injuring his ankle in the heartbreaking loss to Melbourne. Brayden Fiorini and Aaron Young will be tested during the week. 

Match Odds


Port Adelaide $1.16
Gold Coast Suns $5.20

Prediction and Tips 


Despite history suggesting Port Adelaide will steamroll Gold Coast once again, the Suns may be able to hang in and keep the margin below five goals.
