What To Expect
The under looks close to a good thing in this blockbuster to open Round 19. There are some big under angles at play here, primarily small interstate favourites off a big defensive effort seeing the under salute in 23 of 35 since 2012. Night games at the MCG go under, these two have a recent history of under games and the Hawks are a big under team as an underdog at the MCG.
