2016 AFL Finals Series (Semi Finals): Hawthorn Hawks vs. Western Bulldogs
September 15, 2016 by Marc Jerbs

On Friday, the Hawthorn Hawks will face the Western Bulldogs in the semi finals of the 2016 AFL Finals Series at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Game time is set at 7:50PM AEST.

The quest for Hawthorn's 4th premiership title in a row became tougher after Isaac Smith missed his last second shot in the classic two-point qualifying final loss to Geelong last Friday night. The Hawks must win against the impressive Bulldogs in order for them to advance to the preliminary finals.

The Western Bulldogs will be ready for the challenge after a dominant elimination clash with the West Coast Eagles. If they bring the same game plan and intensity against Hawthorn, the reigning champions could be in for a tight and close match again.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Hawthorn Hawks as the favorites to beat the Western Bulldogs on Friday night. The winner of this match will advance in the preliminary finals.
