Hawthorn v Adelaide

Finally the opening game of the round seems worthy of a watch, just coincidence that the Tigers aren’t involved….

Friday Night Footy promises to be a hum-dinger, both sides are on twelve points with only an opening game loss to their names. Many pundits wrote off Hawks, after opening game loss and with key players missing. However they’ve proved their strength in depth by beating the Doggies and Saints in recent weeks. Although the Hawthorn boys have struggled to string together four good quarters, they should’ve embarrassed St Kilda, however this wasn’t the case last weekend.

Adelaide were involved in one of the games of the season against Sydney, the pace in the final quarters was outstanding, I would’ve feigned the hammy during that. The Crows strength is most definite in their forwards, Betts, Lynch, Jenkins and Walker are all getting the job done.

A huge crowd awaits at the MCG, there really isn’t much better than Friday Night Footy in Melbourne. Expect Hawthorn to turn up and get the job done, it will be closer than last season’s Semi but get on them to win at $1.42.

The forth round was a nightmare for all AFL tipsters, me included. However my shining light was the Hawks fixture where I backed Sam Mitchell to have over 40 disposals at a juicy $5.6! Nobody gets close to Sam Mitchell in the line-ups, he looks a sure fired bet for most disposals at $2.25.

Fancy a bit more value? It is Friday afterwards, have a cheeky punt on Billy Hartung having over 30 disposals and Gunston kicking three at $10.
