Hawthorn Hawks vs Essendon Bombers Preview
The Hawks and the Bombers are set to write another chapter in their epic rivalry on Thursday afternoon when they meet at the Adelaide Oval.
The season is just about over for both of these clubs, which has set up a rather interesting market from a betting perspective.
Hawthorn were very brave last week on the same ground where they pushed top of the table Port Adelaide right to the brink.
The Hawks eventually succumbed to the Power’s pressure in the late stages, but head coach Alastair Clarkson has to be happy with the way some of his younger players stepped up in crucial moments.
Likewise, the Dons also gave the reigning premiers more than they bargained for in the Northern Territory.
The Bombers ran out of steam in their 12 point loss, but it was a nice to watch the Dons attack the game with some ferocity for a change.
Hawthorn has won three of their last five contests against Essendon, but the real trend worth paying attention to is the Over.
The last two games between these two sides have gone Over the Total Points Line, so on the back of a pair of close calls last week, we could be in for a high-scoring thriller.
