A great result last night with the Hawks getting up at a huge $6 with the 2 unit line bet never in doubt.
Ive spent a bit of time on Bulldogs vs Saints and Melbourne vs Gold Coast and haven’t ended up hanging my hat on anything with St Kilda +16.5 the closest I came to pulling the trigger, or hanging my hat, or shooting my hat stand.
At first glance I thought Richmond looked a likely bet at -2.5 to beat Essendon but their 8/11 record at the line at the MCG since the start of last year put me off along with Essendon’s 7/4 record in the same period and the Dons have already beaten the Hawks, Pies and Cats at the venue in 2017.
The total points market does look like offering a bit of value with 2017 totals at the MCG – and in general – averaging around 10 points more than in the previous few years.
In 2017 the average MCG game in dry conditions has averaged 185 points and 183 at night.
