Old rivals do battle on  a traditional Easter Monday clash when Hawthorn takes on Geelong the MCG.

The Cats scored a gritty 10-point win over Brisbane last week and will welcome back captain Joel Selwood as well as gun defender Tom Stewart. 

Hawthorn, however, is licking its wounds after being smashed to the tune of 69 points against St Kilda in round four. 

The loss was a stark reminder as to how far Sam Mitchell’s men are off from being a bonafide finals contender. 

Most Hawthorn fans are aware of that proposition given the club is in ‘rebuild’ mode with a host of young talent fronting up every week. 

The Cats have too much experience and firepower up front to be coughing this one up. 

With Stewart back in the fold and Selwood leading his mob from the heart of midfield, this should be a simple set of four points for the Cats. 

Suggested Bets: Geelong -15.5 at $1.90

total points under 156.5

Basing this bet heavily on the weather forecast for Monday.

There is a 90% chance of precipitation predicted for this Easter Monday clash and with Geelong’s team defence looking so strong, it should be able to choke this game down and stall Hawthorn’s scoring ability. 

Tom Stewart coming back only adds to our confidence. 

Last year’s clash at the MCG in Round 3 went well under 156 points with the teams combining for 133 points.

Suggested Bet: Total points under 156.5 at $1.87

same game multi

Focusing on a handful of players here for the same game multi.

Going to throw Tom Stewart and Joel Selwood into the legs as they return into the Geelong squad. 

Jaegar O’Meara performed well against the Cats in Round 3 last season, so we expect him to get in excess of 30 disposals. 

Suggested Bet:
Leg 1: Geelong -15.5 
Leg 2: J. Selwood 20+ disposals
Leg 3: T. Stewart 20+ disposals
Leg 4: J. O’Meara 30+ disposals
Combined odds = $13
