Punters still pick Melbourne, Brisbane

It’s great that the talk of the town this week has been squarely focused on our great game and the magnificent achievements of Ange Postecoglu’s Brisbane Roar… well that and Melbourne Victory’s problems, but let’s focus on the positive!

In game 36 Brisbane are just looking for a win or draw to land themselves in Australian sporting history as the team with the longest undefeated streak – ever. From a Betstar point of the view, they are at a very short price to do just this. For the win they are $1.53, draw $3.80 or the worst result – losing this week to Perth Glory - $6.00. So, the money says we’re certain to see history made.

Elsewhere in the A-League this weekend, the pressure on Melbourne Victory continues, so how have punters reacted? So far the punters are standing by Mehmet’s men. Melbourne Victory are still just $6 for the title and at home on Sunday to Gold Coast, three points are all but assured. Victory $1.80 for the win, Gold Coast $4.40 and Draw $3.35.

Over in the old country, punters fully believe in the Mancini plan. Manchester City, despite Champions League problems, show little signs of failure this season in the EPL – a very short $1.70 for the title. The non-believers will undoubtedly be watching their clash with Liverpool at Anfield this weekend with the Reds bouncing off a superb win over Chelsea. Man City is $2.48, Liverpool $2.78 and Draw $3.30. The eye-catching price of the week goes to Newcastle, who are an incredible $9.30 away to Man United at Old Trafford… they are a small chance and we know United haven’t been in mind-blowing form of late!

It’s special-o’clock time and well done punters who got onboard our special last week where Arsenal and Tottenham cleaned up for you lot! This week, we’ve got a big special for you. If you love leaders in the EPL and the A-League this ones for you! Grab both Brisbane Roar and Manchester City to win this weekend at Betstar.com.au for the top price of $4!
