Carlton Blues vs Hawthorn Hawks Odds
Carlton Blues vs Hawthorn Hawks Preview
For the first time in the age of social media, smartphones and the history of this company Carlton are the clear favourites in their match against Hawthorn.
It was quite possible bookmakers were offering fractional odds the last time the Blues were hot favourites against the Hawks.
Carlton is a good team now.
The Blues managed to keep North Melbourne at bay last week after a dominant first quarter.
Patrick Cripps has been at his brilliant high-marking best and Marc Murphy is proving highly reliable and efficient in the later years of his career.
Hawthorn has been woeful of recent.
Losing to an undermanned Sydney by seven points last week including scoring only two goals in the second half, Clarko can have all the excuses he wants in his post-game press conferences but the brown and gold glory days are over.
Perhaps the fact the Blues have won only one out of their past 17 against Hawthorn is something to go by but these are strange times.
This game is being played on a Friday afternoon in Perth and the Blues are favourites.
Carlton will get the job done.
