Richmond come off a 33-point victory in Round 19 against Gold Coast last weekend, while Hawthorn claimed a six-point win over the Swans.
The Tigers sit in 4th position in the ladder, one game clear of 5th placed Port Adelaide, while the Hawks are in 12th spot, just behind a host of sides that are trying to squeeze into the eight.
Little separates the two sides in the early head to head betting. Richmond have won four more matches than Hawthorn in season 2017, but the Hawks have won four of their past six, while drawing with GWS and just going down to Geelong in the other two in that time period.
Alistair Clarkson has reinvented his side and a number of their younger players have stepped up, including James Sicily, Ryan Burton and Kaiden Brand in the back half of the ground, while Tom Mitchell continues to find plenty of the footy.
Mitchell is now into $5 for the Brownlow Medal and has picked up more possessions than any other player this season. He will be one of the keys for the brown and gold and the contest in the middle of the ground between the Hawks and Tigers midfielders shapes as a beauty.
Mitchell is behind Richmond’s Dustin Martin in the Brownlow Medal betting. The powerful contested ball player is at the odds of $1.18 for the games highest individual honour after Geelong’s Patrick Dangerfield was suspended and deemed ineligible for the award. Martin will be hard to stop on Sunday. Daniel Howe, who claimed the scalp of Sydney’s Josh Kennedy, looms as a potential match up for the Tigers powerhouse.
Other key battles will occur in the Hawks forward half, where Jarryd Roughead is likely to find himself up against Alex Rance, while at the Tigers end of the ground a lot will hinge on the availability of Jack Riewoldt, who missed with an eye injury last weekend.
