West Coast vs. Essendon Prediction
West Coast Eagles lost 16 of their last 17 matches. They are on a streak of 9 defeats in a row this season. The Bombers won their last match at Optus Stadium.
The visiting Bombers will be the favourites to win this tie. They handed the Saints an outstanding defeat on the road in the last round. It will give Essendon a lot of confidence ahead of playing the 18th place West Coast.
We don’t see the home side coming out of their misery against a spirited Essendon (16th) side. Our pick is Essendon Bombers to grab their second win in a row.
