Collingwood will look to build off the momentum of a close win against arch-rival Carlton when it goes head to head with Hawthorn at the MCG.
Sitting at 6-5, the Magpies can push their claims for a spot in the top eight with a win, but a Hawthorn team eager to rebound off a disappointing loss against Gold Coast stands in their way.
Jack Gunston makes his return from a niggling ankle injury and his presence will certainly be a welcomed force in the Hawthorn forward line.
The Hawks have been well found in this market.
Collingwood’s win last weekend does have the caveat of not being able to put away a depleted Carlton squad and relying on a missed shot from Jack Silvagni to get the four points.
Hawthorn to cause an upset.
Suggested Bet: Hawthorn head to head at $2.50
fremantle vs. brisbane
june 5th 5:20pm
Two premiership contenders go head to head when Fremantle welcomes Brisbane to Optus Stadium for a mouth-watering fixture to end Round 12.
Fremantle charged away with a dominant win against flag-favourite Melbourne last weekend, while the Lions survived an early scare against the struggling Giants.
This shapes as one of the matches of the season and the market is telling us this is going to be a close one.
Fremantle edges ahead as the slight favourite and it is understandable given how strong its structure and defensive unit is.
Justin Longmuir has embedded such a team-first nature into the Dockers and it is going to go a long way to not only winning this match, but making the top four.
If Joe Daniher had have lined up in this game, the Lions would be the bet, but the Purple Haze is the way to go here.
In front of its home fans, Fremantle looks poised to win the premiership points.
Suggested Bet: Fremantle -1.5 at $1.93
