Even us at Betstar dip our lids to the amazing achievements by Ange Postecoglu’s Brisbane Roar - undefeated on 36, well done. In punters eyes, they like them but it’s not quite over yet. After all there’s a Grand Final in Australia unlike most leagues elsewhere… but if you still think they’re a good thing, $2.30 could tickle your fancy.

Over in Pommyville, just when you thought the race for the title was done and dusted, the Manchester big boys could only manage to draw last weekend, so is the race back on?

Betstar’s members are torn, early money this season was all for United but as the seasons’ worn on, punters have flocked to City in droves but have been steady at $1.70 in the last few weeks. As we alluded to in the last few weeks, punters who are indecisive have had a little go at Spurs.

Tottenham’s been the big go of the last few weeks in from $81 to $41 to now $21. A nice little draw ahead for Harry’s boys could see this price tumble even further as the faithful at White Hart League dream of a first league title since 1960/61.

History tells us United will come good post-Christmas but they do not want to be too far behind as Santa season approaches, so a win this weekend away to Villa is well and truly needed. Aston Villa $5.10, Man Utd $1.71 and Draw $3.60.

The pick of the bunch this weekend in the EPL is the opening match from St James’ Park as the high-flying ‘Toon host Chelsea. The blues have been the drifters all week $1.90 - $2 whilst punters are starting to believe in Pardew’s Newcastle in from $4 to $3.80 – Draw $3.40.

Betstar has taken on board your feedback and, as a result, we now have weekly various specials across both the A-League and English Premier League. The pick of the specials seems to be Man City to score the most goals on Saturday at $2.10 against Norwich or get Spurs $2.75, Arsenal $6.50, Man Utd $8.50 and Chelsea $11.
