Geelong v Hawthorn
Saturday 1:45pm at MCG

Traditionally one of the most-anticipated matches of the season, the high-flying Cats will be hoping to bury a resurgent Hawthorn in a massive Saturday afternoon clash.

Geelong enter this off an 85-point annihilation of the Brisbane Lions. The Cats have lost just one of their last seven matches and now sit third on the ladder with a 10-4-1 record. Geelong rank second in scoring and sixth in defence. The Cats though have been excellent defensively of late, not conceding more than 83 points in seven straight.

Hawthorn have launched a mini-revival of their season after three straight weeks without a loss, defeating Adelaide and Collingwood before a draw with Greater Western Sydney. They are up to 13th on the ladder with a 6-8-1 record. The Hawks have not conceded a triple figure score in their last nine matches.

What To Expect
Could not be more keen on the under here with every angle pointing to a low-scoring affair. The Hawks have been a big under team all year and the Cats are defending like beasts at present. Geelong are a big under team at the MCG, particularly recently and in day games. The Hawks are a big under team as an outsider. The under hits big-time when a team is coming off posting 150. Five trucks the under.
