The Hawks are set to earn an unwanted record.

 

In a disastrous season for Hawthorn the team that had won three straight premierships heading into last season, they now finds themselves above only the hapless Brisbane Lions on the ladder heading into Round 14.

 

The Hawks are about to set another unwanted record - they are the longest price in Head to Head betting that they have ever started since records began being kept in 2007.

 

These teams met earlier in the season and the Crows prevailed 113 to 89 at the MCG. We are predicting a similar score line here so the total game score going Over 190.5 ($1.91 @ bet365) is worth an investment.

 

Ball magnet Tom Mitchell had a game high 38 disposals when the teams met last and he leads the competition in disposals and looks a good chance to again gain the most touches.

 

Adelaide went into the bye with a strong win to halt a mini form slide. The Crows won their first six games of the season and in that period easily looked the strongest team in the competition and after some minor hiccups they were clinical in dispatching St Kilda by 57 points.

 

The pleasing thing for the Crows is also the biggest concern - the form of one-time Brownlow medal favourite Rory Sloane.

 

After a blistering start to the season Sloane has not played well when opposition clubs apply a heavy tag on him which saw him collect 23 disposals in the loss to Geelong and just 14 against St Kilda.

 

After being outright favourite, Sloane is now on the third line of Brownlow Medal markets behind Patrick Dangerfield and Dustin Martin.

 

With Adelaide expected to record a victory in this match it might be worth looking at Sloane for the Brownlow as his current odds of $10 with Sportsbet and Crownbet might be the best we see this year.

 

Adelaide will win this game, but the line of 50.5 points is incredibly high. If the Hawks have any respect they will cover that.

 

STATS BET

Eddie Betts kicked three goals when these teams played last and looks a good bet to boot the most majors.

HAWTHORN +50.5
