2018 AFL Round 20: Hawthorn Hawks vs. Essendon Bombers
August 03, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Hawthorn Hawks will face the Essendon Bombers in Round 20 of the 2018 AFL. Game time is set 1:45PM AEST at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

These two teams have a storied animosity between each other and is set for another high intensity rivalry game. The Hawks have won five of the last seven games against the Bombers at home. Hawthorn must win the clearances and control possession to defeat Essendon.

The Essendon Bombers are one of the in-form teams this season and their run game will possibly cause a major headache.

Once Connor McKenna and Adam Saad get hold of the ball they can move it the length of the field and rack up points.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Essendon Bombers as a 2.5-point favorite to beat the Hawthorn Hawks on Saturday noon.
