It’s an intriguing final round and a very tough weekend for punters in the A-League with many dead rubbers but a few rippers too.

On Sunday, Sydney FC $2.08 hosting Newcastle Jets $3.30, Draw $3.40, as they fight it out head to head for the last spot in the A-League finals. The Jets only need a draw or win to secure their place whilst the pressure will be on Sydney who must win but their home fans will be willing them over the line.

Perth $2.12 host Victory $3.10, Draw $3.45. The Glory will be stoked they’ve secured a home final and Champions League action next season, meanwhile Victory get to see which players want to wear their shirt.

Wellington $2.34 too has secured a home final but blew their Premiers Plate hopes last weekend against Gold Coast, on Sunday they’re home to Central Coast $2.78 who will look to secure top place.

To wind up the weekend, Gold Coast United $4 play their last ever game (we think) as they host Brisbane Roar $1.84. Gold Coast pulled out a spirited 3-0 win last weekend and Brisbane proved too good for Newcastle so this one is a must watch and could be value for punters… even the draw at $3.50 is worth considering. Brisbane has to win and hope Mariners get rolled to steal the Premiers Plate from their grasp and that would be a devastating blow on the eve of finals!

For the Championship, Brisbane is favourites at $2.50, Central Coast at $2.80. The value seems to be with Perth and Wellington at $8 as we know they’ll at least be home to start the finals. Heart leads the bolters pack at $12, Sydney at $17 and Newcastle at $21.

This week’s special gives you the unbelievable price of $13 for A-League’s Top 3 – Central Coast, Brisbane and Perth - all to win in the final round of the A-League! Get on now, it won’t last.
