GWS v Geelong
Saturday 7:25pm at Spotless Stadium
The match of the round without question, first-placed Greater Western Sydney host third-placed Geelong in a salivating affair that will have a major impact on the pointy end of the ladder.
Greater Western Sydney has moved top of the table with their 10-3 record following their 60-point destruction of the Brisbane Lions. The Giants have a 10-3 record and have won 5 of their last 6 with their only loss a shock to Carlton. GWS rank third in attack and sixth in defence. Five of the last eight Giants games have been decided by single digits.
Geelong have won four of their last five and are third on the ladder, just a win behind the Giants. They enter this off a two-point win at home to Fremantle in what was a grinding affair. The Cats have dropped their last four away from Simonds Stadium. Geelong rank fifth in scoring but are a surprisingly average ninth defensively.

What To Expect
Betting does seem a little off in this one making the Cats getting an enormous start a bet. Not too many angles pushing them but GWS have barely been winning of late. The best bet though is the under. The Giants go under in 80% of night games while the Cats have been a strong under team at night of late.
