Monday Night Football, Round 11 2020
Monday Night Football for Round 11 of the 2020 AFL Season and we have a couple of intriguing matches to look forward to.
To kick off proceedings, we have the Saints taking on the Cats at the Gabba. We then head to Optus Stadium in Perth in which the Dockers will host the Hawks.
Sunday AFL ended with the Eagles defeating the Blues at home, and the Demons were far too good for a very disappointing Kangaroos outfit.
Check out some of the highlights below.

St Kilda Saints vs Geelong Cats
Round 17, 2020 Geelong 12.12 84 – St Kilda 8.9 57
(Geelong by 27 Points)
Last 5 Meetings
St Kilda – 1 Win, 1 Draw
Geelong – 3 Wins, 1 Draw
The Saints won their fourth match in a row against the Suns in Round 10 and are now being considered a genuine finals contender. They won the game by 4 points, and a win against Geelong will begin to answer a lot of questions about their worthiness of being a finals contender.
The Cats continue to play good football and were too good for the Kangaroos with a 33 Point win.
A few changes for both sides for this clash with the Saints resting Zak Jones and Ed Phillips has been dropped. Jarryn Geary is back into the team, and Jack Bytel makes his AFL Debut.
For the Cats, Lachie Fogarty, Zach Guthrie and Sam Simpson are all out of the team, and Jake Kolodjashnij, Brandan Parfitt and Gary Rohan come back into the side.
Excellent conditions are expected for this clash.
Current Head to Head Odds
St Kilda – $2.45
Geelong – $1.55
The Saints have been playing good football and winning games, but just the four-day break after their win over the Gold Coast Suns will make things a little more difficult. They will have their hands full with the Geelong Midfield and stopping Tom Hawkins will be tough. If the Cats use Dangerfield in the middle, it gets even more stringent.
The Cats should take care of the Saints in this clash as they are the more talented team and the extra day break may prove vital.
Our Pick – Geelong (Win)
Player Prop – Jack Steven + 68.5 Fantasy Points
Steven comes up against his old side in this one and was in some good form last week with 92 Fantasy Points. His distinctive run and carry was on show, and he will know how to exploit some of his ex-teammates to gather the possessions.
Fremantle Dockers vs Hawthorn Hawks
Round 17, 2019 Hawthorn 12.12 84 – Fremantle 8.5 53
(Hawthorn by 31 Points)
Last 5 Meetings
Fremantle – 0 Wins
Hawthorn – 5 Wins
The Dockers were impressive in their Round 9 Clash with a 12 Point win against the Collingwood team.
The Hawks came from behind in their clash at Optus Stadium to win their match against the Blues by 31 Points.
A couple of changes for Fremantle for this game with James Aish and Stephen Hill coming into the team at the expense of Brandon Matera and Tobe Watson.
For the Hawks, veteran Shaun Burgoyne is injured, and Conor Nash comes into the side.
Rain is expected for this clash which will make it a tough game to pick.
Current Head to Head Odds
Fremantle – $1.95
Hawthorn – $1.85
The Dockers will again be without Michael Walters for this clash and the thing that they have lacked for an extended period is a consistent goal kicker. The Hawks have a great record against Fremantle and found some form last week against the Blues in a dominating final three quarters.
Wet conditions are expected, and the Fremantle game plan didn’t work the last time conditions were greasy when they played the Cats.
If Michael Walters was playing the Dockers may be the more fancied option, but the Hawks should be too good on this occasion.
Our Pick – Hawthorn (Win)
Player Prop – Jaeger O’Meara + 78.5 Fantasy Points
O’Meara is a good pressure player, and the wet slippery conditions will mean he will rack up some tackles. Should cover this number if he doesn’t get a hard tag.
