Hawthorn Hawks vs West Coast Eagles Preview
If the West Coast Eagles do not beat Hawthorn at the MCG on Sunday, we can never ever trust them away from Optus Stadium ever again.
Given the performance West Coast put in the Derby and what Hawthorn dished up last week against the Saints, the Eagles are rightful $1.40 favorites heading into this game, but can I trust them playing in Melbourne?
I’m assuming the good West Coast Eagles will turn up and need to get into the spirit of Same Game Multi round, so here goes.
First leg – Eagles at the line (-16.5), they should be able to cover a three-goal headstart against the Hawks.
Second leg – Josh Kennedy 3+ Goals, he should be the reason for the three-goal headstart.
Third leg – Tom Mitchell 35+ Disposals, no idea how he keeps getting the footy, but week after week he suffers a case of leather poisoning.
Hopefully, a nice way to kick off Sunday footy at the $6.04 price.
