Harry vs Emmo: Wanna bet who'll score most?

What an incredible few weeks for the A-League with Emmo to Sydney FC, Harry to Victory and now just six weeks away from the season kicking off!

It’s all getting too exciting for many and money has flown through the Betstar door after opening our championship market. I don’t think you’d be too surprised to hear that they’re all wild about Harry! Melbourne Victory are favourites to pick up a third championship this season at $5, which is amazing considering the dominance of Ange’s Brisbane Roar last season and I would’ve thought — despite some departures — that they’d be a solid chance to repeat, so $5.50 seems incredible value... rarely do you see reigning premiers at that price in any sport!

For Socceroos fans, Betstar has just opened a unique market on the two new Socceroos who’ve just joined the A-League — head to head for most goals this season. You can get $1.40 for Harry who’ll mostly play as a striker you’d think or, if you think Emmo can recapture his goal scoring form from the Premier League, $3 is very generous!

Meanwhile, in the motherland, Arsenal’s garage sale has Gunners fans seething after two less than acceptable performances, so their trip to Old Trafford will be extremely tough minus Cesc and Samir. They are a whopping $7 to take home the three points, United are $1.45 to clean sweep both North London sides in back-to-back weekends, $4.20 the draw.

The other big match of the weekend is Spurs at White Hart Lane against Man City. Tottenham ($2.80) is without any points yet and facing potential title contenders from the north, they’ll be hoping to get on the board but Mancini’s men (at $2.44 – Draw $3.25) have a steely look about them, finally.

With Emerton’s departure, it’s now pretty simple keeping track of the Socceroos in the EPL… well certainly those that can score anyhow, with only super Timmy left! It was a disappointing effort by Timmy’s Toffees on the weekend against QPR and he had plenty of chances to score, the GGArmy punters who jumped on our special last week would feel very hard done by... so come and get us this time!

Betstar is offering a market on Tim Cahill to score this weekend in the EPL, ironically against Emmo’s old team Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park for the special price of $7.
