Collingwood v Hawthorn – Friday night AFL
The Friday Night lights will be turned up on Collingwood in our AFL Betting Tips Friday Night game.
The Pies have been off their two “worst performances” of the year according to coach Nathan Buckley. Truth be known they haven’t played decent footy for a while. Something is not right at Collingwood at the moment and there seems some type of disconnect. Now is the time to get themselves back on track and you get the feeling after copping the wrath of Buckley this week it may be time.
Hawthorn is starring down the barrel of a five game losing streak, but they really brought the contest strongly to the Eagles last week. If they could reproduce that style of effort they could really test an under fire Collingwood. Despite it being 15thvs 2ndit shapes as a good contest.
