Brisbane Roar FC vs Sydney FC

Monday, January 8, 2018 @ Suncorp Stadium
Odds: Roar $6.00, Sydney FC $1.57

Roar Form:

The Roar suffered a bad home loss to the Wanderers last week. They’ve now slipped to 9th on the ladder and face the toughest team in the A-League.
Last 5 Matches:
LOST by 2 goals – Roar 0, Wanderers 2 – Round 14, 2018
WON by 1 goal – Roar 2, United 1 – Round 13, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Roar 1, Glory 2 – Round 12, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Roar 1, Victory 2 – Round 11, 2017
DREW – Roar 0, Phoenix 0 – Round 10, 2017

Sydney FC Form:

Sydney FC is still undefeated in their last 9 matches, despite a 2-2 draw against the Jets last round. They sit atop the ladder and own the best offence in the A-League. They’ve also allowed just 12 goals in 14 matches and rank #1 in defence as well.
Last 5 Matches:
DREW – Sydney FC 2, Jets 2 – Round 14, 2018
WON by 6 goals – Sydney FC 6, Glory 0 – Round 13, 2017
WON by 3 goals – Sydney FC 4, Phoenix 1 – Round 12, 2017
WON by 2 goals – Sydney FC 3, City 1 – Round 11, 2017
WON by 5 goals – Sydney FC 5, Wanderers 0 – Round 10, 2017

Head to Head

Sydney is 2-2-0 against the Roar in the last 4 meetings. They met earlier this season and the Sky Blues won 3-1

Last 2 Meetings:

Sydney FC won by 2 goals – Round 8, 2017. Sydney FC 3 – Roar 1
Draw – Round 18, 2017. 0 – 0

Prediction:

Form-wise, Sydney FC is the best bet here to lead throughout the match.
Sydney FC HT/FT ($2.30)

Newcastle Jets vs Central Coast Mariners

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 @ McDonald Jones Stadium
Odds: Jets $1.72, Mariners $4.50

Jets Form:

The Jets proved their premiership credentials with a gutsy 2-2 draw against Sydney last round. They’ll now face the 8th placed Mariners and should have enough goals in them. They rank 2nd in the A-League for goals scored and equal third for defence.
Last 5 Matches:
DREW – Jets 2, Sydney FC 2 – Round 14, 2018
LOST by 1 goal – Jets 1, Victory 2 – Round 13, 2017
WON by 4 goals – Jets 4, Wanderers 0 – Round 12, 2017
WON by 1 goal – Jets 2, United 1 – Round 11, 2017
WON by 1 goal – Jets 2, Glory 1 – Round 10, 2017

Mariners Form:

The Mariners would be happy with a point on the road against Melbourne last round. They rank dead last for goals scored with 14 in 14 matches. So they’ll need to find the net against Newcastle.
Last 5 Matches:
DREW – Mariners 1, Victory 1 – Round 14, 2018
DREW – Mariners 0, Phoenix 0 – Round 13, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Mariners 0, United 1 – Round 12, 2017
LOST by 2 goals – Mariners 0, Wanderers 2 – Round 11, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Mariners 0, City 1 – Round 10, 2017

Head to Head

The two sides met in Round 1 and Newcastle thrashed them 5-1. But in Newcastle, the Jets haven’t beaten the Mariners in the last 7 meetings.

Last 2 Meetings:

Jets won by 4 goals – Round 1, 2017. Jets 5 – Mariners 1
Mariners won by 2 goals – Round 26, 2017. Mariners 2 – Jets 0

Prediction:

The Mariners have the wood over the Jets on the road, but that should change here. The Jets won 5-1 against them this season and just scored 2 goals against Sydney.
Jets WIN ($1.72)

Perth Glory vs Melbourne City FC

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 @ nib Stadium
Odds: Glory $3.10, City $2.25

Glory Form:

Perth’s leaky defence is back after allowing 9 goals in their last two games. To make matters worse, they’ve been kept to a clean sheet in both of those matches.
Last 5 Matches:
LOST by 3 goals – Glory 0, United 3 – Round 14, 2018
LOST by 6 goals – Glory 0, Sydney FC 6 – Round 13, 2017
WON by 1 goal – Glory 2, Roar 1 – Round 12, 2017
WON by 1 goal – Glory 1, Phoenix 0 – Round 11, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Glory 1, Jets 2 – Round 10, 2017

City Form:

Melbourne City is holding the 3rd position on the ladder and should enjoy facing the Glory’s last-ranked defence. Last round, City beat the Phoenix 2-1 and we can see more goals in them.
Last 5 Matches:
WON by 1 goal – City 2, Phoenix 1 – Round 14, 2018
LOST by 1 goal – City 1, Wanderers 2 – Round 13, 2018
LOST by 1 goal – City 0, Victory 1 – Round 12, 2017
LOST by 2 goals – City 1, Sydney FC 3 – Round 11, 2017
WON by 1 goal – City 1, Mariners 0 – Round 10, 2017

Head to Head

Perth is 3-0 against City and beat them 3-1 away from home in November last year.

Last 2 Meetings:

Glory won by 2 goals – Round 8, 2017. Glory 3 – City 1
Glory won by 2 goals – Elimination Final, 2017. Glory 2 – City 0

Prediction:

The over total goals is 4-1 in this matchup and we can’t see Perth stopping City in front of the goals.
Over 2.5 goals ($1.71)

Wellington Phoenix vs Melbourne Victory

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 @ Westpac Stadium
Odds: Phoenix $4.00, Victory $1.83

Phoenix Form:

Wellington is back at home for the first time this year and will need to show improvement in defence. In 6 home matches, they’ve allowed 17 goals and have won just 1 of 6. That spells trouble against the Victory.
Last 5 Matches:
LOST by 1 goal – Phoenix 1, City 2 – Round 14, 2018
DREW – Phoenix 0, Mariners 0 – Round 13, 2017
LOST by 3 goals – Phoenix 1, Sydney FC 4 – Round 12, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Phoenix 0, Glory 1 – Round 11, 2017
DREW – Phoenix 0, Roar 0 – Round 10, 2017

Victory Form:

Melbourne drew 1-1 against the Mariners last round which was disappointing for a form side. They have been great on the road this season with 4 wins and 2 draws from 7 away matches.
Last 5 Matches:
DREW – Victory 1, Mariners 1 – Round 14, 2018
WON by 1 goal – Victory 2, Jets 1 – Round 13, 2017
WON by 1 goal – Victory 1, City 0 – Round 12, 2017
WON by 1 goal – Victory 2, Roar 1 – Round 11, 2017
LOST by 1 goal – Victory 1, United 2 – Round 10, 2017

Head to Head

The two sides have already met over in NZ this season and the Victory won 3-2.

Last 2 Meetings:

Victory won by 1 goal – Round 9, 2017. Victory 3 – Phoenix 2
Phoenix won by 3 goals – Round 25, 2017. Phoenix 3 – Victory 0

Prediction:

The over total goals is 5-0 in this matchup and we like it again here. The Phoenix score goals at home and the Victory are playing better than at home this season.
Over 2.5 goals ($1.71)

Western Sydney Wanderers FC vs Adelaide United

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 @ ANZ Stadium
Odds: Wanderers $2.25, United $2.88

Wanderers Form:

The Wanderers have kicked off the new year with two impressive wins. On New Years Day they beat City at home and then followed with a 2-0 win in Brisbane.
Last 5 Matches:

LOST by 5 goals – Wanderers 0, Sydney FC 5 – Round 10, 2017

United Form:

Adelaide are 4th on the ladder and smashed the Glory in Perth 3-0 last round. They’ll be on the road again this week and have a good record away from home this season (4-1-2).
Last 5 Matches:
WON by 3 goals – United 3, Glory 0 – Round 14, 2018
LOST by 1 goal – United 1, Roar 2 – Round 13, 2017

LOST by 1 goal – United 1, Jets 2 – Round 11, 2017
WON by 1 goal – United 2, Victory 1 – Round 10, 2017

Head to Head

United have won the last two meetings against the Wanderers and haven’t lost against them in the last 4 matchups.

Last 2 Meetings:

United won by 2 goals – Round 8, 2017. United 2 – Wanderers 0
Draw – Round 27, 2017. 2 – 2

Prediction:

These two sides are in good form so we like the draw for a value bet.
