Saints to exploit the Hawks defence and win the match.
Our Pick – St Kilda (Win)
Player Prop – Nick Coffield + 65.5 Fantasy Points
Defenders racking up stats has been the trend this season and that will probably stay true for this contest. Coffield is a good user of the football and although he averages 61, he should get plenty of cheap stats in this clash.
Player Prop – Jack Billings + 79.5 Fantasy Points
The Hawks are number one this season in giving up Fantasy Points to opposition forwards and Billings goes up forward numerous times during matches. Spends extended periods in the middle and is due for a decent match.
