Carlton vs Gold Coast Suns Predictions
Carlton cannot afford to stumble if they need to form finals for the primary time since 2013. The Blues are tipped to stay their finals chance alive for an additional week.
It has been an underwhelming season for the Suns and once more they have to go back to the drafting board after missing out on the finals.
- Carlton have won 4 of their last 6 matches.
- Carlton have won their last 3 matches against Gold Coast Suns.

Head to go
Carlton managed to carry off Gold Coast in Round 4 this season winning by 11 points. It made it three wins during a row for the Blues against the Suns.
The season looked done when the Blues were the victims of a surprise loss to North Melbourne fortnight ago.
However, a robust showing against St Kilda gives Carlton a fat chance to still hit their season goal of creating the finals. Carlton ran out 112-81 winners over the Saints last weekend to form it four wins from the last six matches.
The Blues have two likely medallists within the squad. Harry McKay is leading the Coleman medal tally and Sam Walsh has emerged as late contender for the Brownlow as his recent form has been exceptional.
