Top of the ladder Melbourne (13-3, 52 points) host 17th placed Hawthorn (4-12, 16 points) at the MCG this Saturday and wouldn’t the Dees love to ensure they remain on top with a big win over the Hawks in this one?

Melbourne flexed their muscle with a terrific win over Port last week. Christian Petracca raked up 33 disposals further cementing his claim on this year’s Brownlow while Clayton Oliver had another case of leather poisoning and Tom McDonald and Kysaiah Pickett looked dynamite up forward.

Dees fans have every right to be up and about right now.

Hawthorn got belted by Freo in Tassie last weekend and with North Melbourne on the improve, they could find themselves with a wooden spoon.

Granted, the Hawks have played some good footy in recent weeks but something tells me the Clarko/Sam Mitchell transition plan is going to be quite the sideshow and quite distracting for the playing group.

Melbourne demolished the Hawks 104-54 in their Round 5 encounter at the MCG last April. 

Verdict

A fun betting tidbit is that Melbourne has won 14 of its last 18 matches by a margin of 1-39 points, and I expect that stat to be 15 out of 19 by the end of this game on Saturday.
