Carlton haven’t beaten Hawthorn since God was in short trousers and surely if the Hawks are to be taken down a peg before the finals, or even including the finals, then it’s unlikely to be the Blues that are the team to do it.
The great thing about handicap betting, however, is that we don’t have to back the winner to be a winner and Carlton’s record at the spread is encouraging in a couple of categories.
4/2 ATS since 2014 as 30+ point underdogs
10/3 ATS at Etihad since 2014
Carlton have also covered in 5 of their last 7 matches and failed to cover by less than a goal against Freo last week when they were competitive for most of the match.
The Hawks are 3/4 ATS as 50+ point favourites since the start of last year.
