Sydney Swans vs Melbourne Demons – match predictions

With a home elimination final on the line, The Swans won’t be letting their success go to their heads when Melbourne Demons visit this Sunday at the SCG. Here are our top predictions ahead of the Swans vs. Melbourne Demons game this Sunday.

Sydney Swans to win (with overtime) @ 4/5 (1.80)

Sydney Swans are on the quest to expand their head-to-head win over Melbourne Demons, having won three in their last five meetings. However, the Demons will try to stop them and pull a surprise and if other game outcomes go their way, the Demons may compete for second place on the ladder. Still, the Swans are the favourites for a reason at home and we can see them getting a win in this match.

Sydney Swans To Win By 1-30 Margin @ 2.30

Sydney Swans have been outstanding recently, which is evident from their ongoing six-game winning streak which enabled them to advance to the finals ahead of the last round. They could move up the ladder if they win, extending their impressive streak to seven games and marking their 13th victory of the season. That is why we expect a win, although we don’t see Swans winning by more than 30 points given that the Demons are also in good form and ahead of the Swans in the standings.

Sydney Swans vs Melbourne Demons preview

Here’s an overview of how both teams have performed this season heading into this match.

Sydney Swans

Sydney had six straight victories and was fortunate to defeat the Adelaide Crows by one point in Round 23. The Swans were up by as many as 44 points in that game and were nearly out of gas when they were awarded a disputed goal late in the contest. We may anticipate strong performances from Errol Gulden, Isaac Heeney, and Chad Warner for the runners-up from last year, who will have up to 20 players from the team that lost in the championship game the previous year. That trio helped in Round 23’s triumph.

Melbourne Demons

Melbourne also enters with a strong record, having won six of their previous seven games. Last weekend, the Demons defeated Hawthorn in a hard-fought match. Steven May and Jake Lever defended the backline, and Jack Viney maintained his impressive season with 25 disposals. Although they combined for six goals last week, Jacob Van Rooyen and Jake Melksham loom as important targets up front, and the Demons will need a boost from Clayton Oliver, who was tightly contained. It is a tight one. Melbourne has the advantage in class, but the Swans benefit from playing at home. Be prepared for this to be quite competitive.

Swans vs Demons head-to-head

Sydney Swans have won two of their three against Melbourne, giving them a slight advantage in the head-to-head faceoff. However, the two sides have not seen each other at the SCG since 2019, in which Melbourne won by 22 points.
