Us football lovers look forward to this time more than any other. It’s the period that sorts the men from the boys, the Miranda’s Kerr’s from the Lindsay Lohan’s, the real deal from the pretenders. So how will your blokes fare?

A gigantic fortnight is ahead for teams in the Premier League and could it be that we may find out the top 4 shortly? A slip again by Liverpool and a weekend loss by Arsenal has seen them lose ground. Man City continues to be backed in by punters and finally, they are also coming for United… an intriguing couple of weeks ahead and some big bucks will be changing hands, we’ll keep you posted.

Back home, the Roar have been silenced. The shakes have hit everyone in the team and the last thing you want is to head into a derby on the back of four defeats on the trot. Despite this, Brisbane still are wanted by punters, they’ll head into the M1 derby $2.12 favourites, Gold Coast United $3.35 and draw $3.35. Notably the first three derbies were won by Gold Coast, by they haven’t won one since!

Speaking of local derbies, they don’t get any bigger in Australia than Melbourne's. A sold out crowd will greet Melbourne Heart and Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park on Friday night. A strange market this one, Victory started $2.44, drifted out to $2.52 and currently stand at $2.50. Meanwhile, when Heart opened at $2.80 punters couldn’t get enough so they trimmed right up to $2.70 and are now at $2.74. The only thing certain here is Victory will go around favourites and it will be a Christmas cracker!

Well done to those GGArmy punters who were apart of the huge $6 special last week, cleaning up with the Melbourne teams. So, due to popular demand we’re back with an A-League $6 double and it’s based on the two local derbies. You can get both favourites Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar to win in their derbies this weekend for $6!

Last but not least, to you and all your family – on behalf of the Betstar team – have a very merry and safe Christmas and may your team take all three points home!
