West coast sit in 5th in this league but top the home form stats and now looking for 9 straight wins at the Optus stadium They are not so strong on their travels but this is a game that West Coast are tipped to win and maintain their top four finish challenge and confine the bombers to the bottom half of the table.

This line is a little too high. I feel this line is based too much on historical data and not the here and now. This is a decent bombers team this season. Unlike many bombers teams of the past dozen years.

After winning eight straight, the Eagles slipped to fifth courtesy of a 27-point loss to the Tigers on Thursday. Josh Kennedy’s early exit with concussion was a crucial blow, though Liam Ryan kicked three goals after moving to full-forward. Nic Naitanui and Andrew Gaff were also impressive.

Essendon – winless in their previous five outings – seemed headed for finals oblivion when they trailed the out-of-contention Hawks by six goals at half-time in round 14. But they outscored the Hawks 11 goals to two in the last two quarters to register a 16-point victory.

West Coast won both of the teams’ 2019 encounters by handsome margins. Josh Kennedy kicked three goals in the Eagles’ 35-point win in round 14. I expect a bounce-back effort from the Eagles. But the line for Essendon is to high for me. I think they can cover the spread on +19.5 points from starts.

My prediction: Essendon cover the spread on  +19.5 points
