The tide has firmly turned to the favour of Arnie’s Mariners as punters abandon Brisbane, finally. Just a point from last week’s encounter against Adelaide was enough for them. The Central Coast has rolled in to $2.90 to be Champions, only a few weeks ago they were $4. Brisbane out to $3.50 while Melbourne Heart are drifting at $7.

An intriguing round awaits us and it all kicks off at AAMI Park where the travelling Reds have fond recent memories of the venue rolling Heart just last week and a 4-1 drubbing of Victory last season there. With new boss Jim Magilton’s first match at the helm, Melbourne Victory will go in favourites at $1.97, Adelaide $3.65, $3.40 the draw. Punters happy are happy to sit back and watch this one, perhaps the Reds are value following their recent run under reinstated boss John Kosmina.

Brisbane will be looking for some sweet revenge as Sydney travel to Suncorp Saturday night, as you may well remember Roar’s run was ended when they last faced Sydney. Brisbane are $1.64 to exact revenge while Sydney are well priced at $5.40 to make it two from two against Ange’s men.

Meanwhile the Manchester teams are looking over their shoulders in the Premier League title race. Spurs have now had their best start to a season in 51 years, in fact they went on to win the title that season so if you fancy them to go on $8 is value, some smart punters took the $41 in November! Spurs are just three points behind City ($1.50 for the title) and separated from United ($3.75) by goal difference.

All we’ve heard all week is that it’s a ‘straight forward’ round in the Premier League and all the favourites will win. They may seem the case but Betstar are taking you on! You can get the Top 4 currently (City, United, Spurs and Chelsea) all to win this weekend for the smokin’ hot price of $3.00 - The best anywhere!
