The Central Coast stunned the A-League and Sydney FC last week with an impressive 2-0 win. It was just their first win of the season so they’ll look to continue the momentum this week against United. They now sit 6th on the ladder with a 1-3-2 record.

Brisbane Roar FC vs Melbourne City FC

Friday, November 17, 2017 @ Suncorp Stadium
Odds: Roar $2.88, City $2.20

Roar Form:

The Roar’s poor season continued on the weekend with a 1-1 draw. They still haven’t won in 10 matches. But they did comeback from a 1-0 deficit late in the game last week. They also have a good record against City which will give them confidence. The Roar sits last on the table with 3 losses and 3 draws.
Last 5 Matches:
DREW – Roar 1, Victory 1 – Round 6, 2017
DREW – Roar 0, Mariners 0 – Round 5, 2017
DREW – Roar 3, Phoenix 3 – Round 4, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Roar 1, Jets 2 – Round 3, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Roar 1, United 2 – Round 2, 2017

City Form:

City are also coming off a 1-1 draw. At home against the Wanderers, they came from behind in the second half to secure a point. City are second on the table and have only conceded 3 goals in 6 matches.
Last 5 Matches:
DREW – City 1, Wanderers 1 – Round 6, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – City 0, Sydney FC 1 – Round 5, 2017
WON by 2 goals – City 2, United 0 – Round 4, 2017
WON by 1 goal – City 1, Phoenix 0 – Round 3, 2017
WON by 1 goal – City 2, Victory 1 – Round 2, 2017

Head to Head

The two sides have met in Melbourne in the last 3 meetings for 2 draws and a City win. At Suncorp, Brisbane have won the last 2 meetings and City haven’t won here since 2014.

Last 2 Meetings:

City won by 2 goals – Round 1, 2017. City 2 – Roar 0
Draw – Round 19, 2017. 2 – 2

Prediction:

This will likely be a low scoring game. City’s defence is strong and the Roar have scored just 6 goals in 6 matches. So we’ll take the under goals.

Western Sydney Wanderers FC vs Wellington Phoenix

Saturday, November 18, 2017 @ Spotless Stadium
Odds: Wanderers $1.57, Phoenix $5.00

Wanderers Form:

Western Sydney continued their run of draws last week but they still sit 4th on the ladder. They also haven’t lost this season, which after losing their coach just before the season is a great result.
Last 5 Matches:
DREW – Wanderers 1, City 1 – Round 6, 2017
DREW – Wanderers 1, Victory 1 – Round 5, 2017
DREW – Wanderers 1, Jets 1 – Round 4, 2017
DREW – Wanderers 2, Sydney FC 2 – Round 3, 2017
DREW – Wanderers 2, Mariners 2 – Round 2, 2017

Phoenix Form:

The Phoenix came alive at home last week netting 5 goals against the Glory. But they’re the worst travelling team in the A-League with 3 losses from 3 matches.
Last 5 Matches:
WON by 3 goals – Phoenix 5, Glory 2 – Round 6, 2017
LOST by 3 goals – Phoenix 0, Jets 3 – Round 5, 2017

LOST by 1 goal – Phoenix 0, City 1 – Round 3, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Phoenix 2, Sydney FC 3 – Round 2, 2017

Head to Head

The Phoenix haven’t won against the Wanderers in the last 6 meetings. The Wanderers have won the last 2 A-League clashes by the same scoreline 3-1 as well.

Last 2 Meetings:

Wanderers won by 2 goals – Round 23, 2017. Wanderers 3 – Phoenix 1
Wanderers won by 2 goals – Round 18, 2017. Wanderers 3 – Phoenix 1

Prediction:

The Wanderers at home have a great record against the Phoenix and we’re expecting the same this Saturday.

Sydney FC vs Newcastle Jets

Saturday, November 18, 2017 @ Allianz Stadium
Odds: Sydney FC $1.57, Jets $5.00

Sydney FC Form:

Sydney were shocked last week as they went down 2-0 against the Mariners. So they’ll be looking to rebound against the in-form Jets.
Last 5 Matches:
LOST by 2 goals – Sydney FC 0, Mariners 2 – Round 6, 2017
WON by 1 goal – Sydney FC 1, City 0 – Round 5, 2017
WON by 2 goals – Sydney FC 2, Glory 0 – Round 4, 2017
DREW – Sydney FC 2, Wanderers 2 – Round 3, 2017
WON by 1 goal – Sydney FC 3, Phoenix 2 – Round 2, 2017

Jets Form:

The Jets early season form continued with an upset victory over United on the road (which we tipped). They also cameback from a 1-0 deficit and in-form goal scorer Roy O’Donovan didn’t hit the back net. He’s scored 7 goals already this season and will be the key against Sydney. The Jets are now on top of the ladder with 4 wins and 2 draws.
Last 5 Matches:
WON by 1 goal – Jets 2, United 1 – Round 6, 2017
WON by 3 goals – Jets 3, Phoenix 0 – Round 5, 2017
DREW – Jets 1, Wanderers 1 – Round 4, 2017
WON by 1 goal – Jets 2, Roar 1 – Round 3, 2017
DREW – Jets 2, Glory 2 – Round 2, 2017

Head to Head

The Sky Blues are the Jets bogey side as they haven’t beaten them in the last 13 meetings. They also haven’t scored a goal in the last 6 matches. In the last 4 meetings, Sydney have won all 2-0.

Last 2 Meetings:

Sydney FC won by 2 goals – Round 27, 2017. Sydney FC 2 – Jets 0
Sydney FC won by 2 goals – Round 9, 2016. Sydney FC 2 – Jets 0

Prediction:

It’s hard to back against Sydney’s record over the Jets but records are made to be broken. So we’re taking the draw as the best value bet. The under total goals would be the safest bet.

Perth Glory vs Melbourne Victory

Sunday, November 19, 2017 @ nib Stadium
Odds: Glory $2.30, Victory $2.60

Glory Form:

Perth were embarrased on the road against the Phoenix as they conceded 5 goals. But they’ll be looking forward to a home game and they’re undefeated in two home games this seaosn. The key will be containing the Victory attack as the Glory now rank 2nd last for goals allowed.

The Victory are still winless after 6 rounds. But Besert Berisha returned from suspension and found the back of the net against the Roar.
Last 5 Matches:
DREW – Victory 1, Wanderers 1 – Round 5, 2017
DREW – Victory 1, Roar 1 – Round 6, 2017
DREW – Victory 1, Mariners 1 – Round 4, 2017

Last 2 Meetings:

Victory won by 3 goals – Round 23, 2017. Victory 4 – Glory 1
Glory won by 1 goal – Round 16, 2017. Glory 2 – Victory 1
