Port Adelaide v Hawthorn

Port Adelaide might be $251 to win the flag but it’s not stopping a few punters chasing the dream, if I was you, I’d keep your hard earnt cash in your wallet.

Power recorded a strong win against the Tigers last week, but still they face an uphill battle in making the finals. Even though they accounted for Richmond last round, they still remain underdogs for round 16, in their clash against Hawthorn. For good reason! Everyone keeps saying this Hawthorn team isn’t as good as ones in recent history, yet they still top of the ladder with WWWWW in the form column.

The Hawks come into the game in great form, and with Rioli coming back they’re my pick to win tonight’s clash. The likes of Boak, Wines and Gray might give Port Adelaide the edge in the middle, but they can’t match Gunston and Breust in front of the posts. Jump on the Hawks to win at $1.76.

Sam Mitchell will get the majority of attention today from the Port midfielders, therefore I’m backing Jordan Lewis to have a game to remember. The Hawks midfielder has had over 30 disposals on four occasions this year, including twice in his last three outings. He’s well worth backing to have 30+ today at $2.
