Preliminary final week, Sydney vs Collingwood, and Hawthorn vs Adelaide. Hawthorn the big favourites of the round.
Sydney at the SCG are a tough proposition, and Collingwood will find this game at the end of a long week with the tragic death and subsequent funeral of John McCarthy interrupting their preparation. Would fade Collingwood on the back of this as the week catches up with them but feel it is inappropriate to do so.
Can the Hawks crush the Crows as they are expected to do? A lot depends on the games of the four forwards, Tex and Tippett at one end, and Buddy and Cyril at the other. Hawthorn’s numbers have been spectacular all year, and even giving up 37.5 points it would take a brave man to go against them. Adelaide have been somewhat hot and cold through the finals series, and will need to be 110% on to snare this one.
Enjoy your betting folks.
