Collingwood -11.5 @ $1.92 (vs Hawthorn Hawks)
The Magpies have been very inconsistent this year with a big gap between their best and worst footy but coming up against a struggling Hawthorn team they should be able to notch up a win. A Stevie Johnson goal inside the final minute of play was all that separated them from the best team in the competition away from home last week.
The Hawks come into this with 2 wins on the trot but those wins were nothing to write home about. They put in a very poor second half against the Demons and were lucky to survive and then last week were able to beat the bottom ranked Brisbane Lions at home. With 3 key players in Rioli, Stratton and Frawley all out through injury they are going to really struggle and this match could get ugly for the Hawks.
Brisbane Lions @ $8.50 (vs Adelaide Crows)
Taking on the Crows at home this week Brisbane go in as the heavy underdogs but given the form of Adelaide over the past fortnight look to represent good value.
Adelaide have started their last 2 matches as raging hot favourites against lesser quality teams but not only did they lose both of those matches but they were beaten convincingly in both. After being beaten 59 points by North Melbourne when $1.13 they were last week beaten 41 points by Melbourne at home when starting odds of $1.14. On the back of those performances they don't warrant being as short as $1.07 as they are to win here, especially away from home.
The fact that the Crows midfield has struggled in recent weeks when Rory Sloane has been tagged is a worrying sign.
