The Hawks will be flying high coming into this weekend buoyed by their amazing form over the past month and a half that has seen them collect 5 wins from 7 games. GWS have had some choppy form of late but will start to see some of their injured players return over the next few weeks significantly raising the bar for the team.

Both of these teams are quite evenly matched across the statistics but where I see the game being won is around the Stoppages and Inside 50. GWS are a better team at converting their chances and have a better structure in their defence which will stifle the Hawks attack somewhat. It will be a very close game that could go either way but I am siding with the Big Big Sound in this one.

  • Hawthorn are 4th worst in the league in allowing their opponents to score points from Stoppages giving up 39.3pts per game
  • GWS are 7th best in the AFL in scoring points from Stoppages at 34.5pts per game
  • The Hawks give up 11.8 Marks Inside 50 per game to their opponent, 7th worst this season
  • The Giants take on average 14 Marks Inside 50 per game, the 2nd best number in the AFL

Head to Head 

The Hawks and Giants have met 7 times since the beginning of the 2019 season. GWS hold a 4-3 advantage in the Head to Head having also won the last 3 games in a row and 4 of the last 5. 

The two matchups last season were close affairs with the Winning Margin being 13pts and 2pts respectively. Only 1 of the previous 7 games have finished with a Winning Margin of 40 points or more.

5 of the last 7 matchups have seen the Game Total stay Under including the last 3 in a row. The Hawks have the better numbers ATS going 5-2.

The Hawks are on a roll, they have won 5 of their last 7 with one of those losses by only a single point. They sit 12th on the ladder after a shaky start to the season but still have everything to play for being 2 wins out of the top 8.

I think this game will finish very close, even the bookies have this one at around a goals difference. I am siding with the Giants in this one as they have the better squad and are better equipped to create chances from Stoppages where the Hawks are weaker. The best value is the 1-39 Margin with favourites winning outright at a 65% rate this year. In a tight tussle the prediction on the Total is Under
