Round 11 vs Hawthorn

Well round 10 was.. well… Let me help everyone out.

Ok, now we have that behind us, lets move forward to round 11 and the Andrew Gowers/Luke Hodge Cup as we host the Hawks at the Gabba.

If you would like to take a trip down memory lane with me then watch the clip below. Late in the 1995 season the Bears were not travelling well and found themselves 45 points down at 3/4 time against the Hawks. They kicked nine goals to one in the last quarter to record an famous win. They then went on the win six of their next seven games to make the finals for the first time in their short eight year history.

Anyway, to the task at hand. Hawthorn have been extremely hard to get a firm grip on so far this year. They have 5 wins and 5 losses to their name and currently sit just outside the AFL Top 8.

The Brisbane Lions had the wood over the Hawks in their two meetings last year recording wins by 56 and 33 points.

This should be a fascinating contest and a real opportunity for the Lions to cement themselves in the top 6.

We’ve provided some recommended betting plays for the game.

 

LIONS AT THE LINE
Lions -7.5 @ $1.90

The Lions have won all but one game at the Gabba this year and they are playing consistent football.

Their best is well and truly good enough to match it with the Hawks and they can cover the line in the process.

HISTORY REPEATS
Haw/Bris/Bris/Bris Quarter Leader @ $10

Brisbane has lost the first quarter in 16 of it’s last 19 night matches at the Gabba.

We look to take advantage of this. 

LEATHER POISONING
Lachie Neale 33+ Disposals & Lions Win @ $2.50

To say Lachie Neale knows how to find the footy would be an understatement. He would certainly lose a game of Hide & Seek against the Sherrin.

He has recorded 30+ disposals in four of his last five appearances with his team at home and favourites.
