AFL Live North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Hawthorn Hawks Stream AFL 2016 Seasons Week 13 match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Friday 17 June 2016 online, 19.50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The gloss is coming off North after a couple of recent losses, while the Hawks will move into the top four if they win.
North have had a mixed few weeks, dominating middle ranked sides like Carlton and Richmond by 67 and 70 points respectively, but falling short against two of the best sides in the competition, Sydney and Geelong, even though both losses had merit.
Hawthorn have won three in a row since dropping their Round 9 match to Sydney, comfortably accounting for Brisbane, Melbourne and Essendon, and putting together more consistent efforts as each match has gone on.
Hawthorn leads North 5-2 in the seven clashes between coaches Alastair Clarkson and Brad Scott. The last three matches have been at Etihad, which the Hawks lead 2-1. Jack Gunston has kicked the most goals on the ground in the last two matches.
North are the only team in the league this season where every match has been won according to the market. They’ve covered the line twice in the last six weeks. Over the last five years at Etihad, North is +22% POT and 60% POT, ranked #3 in the league for both.
Hawthorn are five from six at Etihad since the start of 2015, at +2% POT and 67% ATS. They’ve covered the line once in the last five rounds.
North can win this game, and are at the very least over the odds, if the likes of Ben Cunnington, Andrew Swallow and Nick Dal Santo can recover to be at full fitness in a way they weren’t against Geelong last week.
Hawthorn are hard to get a read on, and may well take the benefit from an easy win against Essendon into harder fare. They’ve played five matches against fellow top seven sides, for two three point wins and three comfortable losses. They still have a bit to prove this season, and may be getting the Roos at the right time.
