Brisbane were no match for Sydney last round as they went down 3-0. Goal scoring has been a major problem for the Roar this season and they’ve currently played two games without scoring. So this will be a tough test.

Newcastle are hard to bet against at home and we’ll be on them again this round. The over total is also worth a play as the Jets are 13-2 against it.
