Hawthorn forward Jack Gunston reckons the bookies have got it wrong, saying North Melbourne should be installed as favourites for Friday night's AFL blockbuster at Etihad Stadium.

The ladder-leading Kangaroos sit a game clear of the Hawks, but two losses in the past three weeks have dented their chances of winning the minor premiership.

The bookmakers have installed Hawthorn as warm favourites for Friday's match, but Gunston said North Melbourne's greater consistency this year meant they deserved to go in as the team to beat.
