A-LEAGUE

NewsMail - - NEWS -

THERE have been plenty of up­sets in the first month of the A-League sea­son, but all five games this week­end will have a clear favourite.

Both Mel­bourne Vic­tory and Mel­bourne City are dom­i­nant favourites and have been heav­ily backed with Lad­brokes pun­ters.

City have won six of their past seven games against the Welling­ton Phoenix and it is no sur­prise they are $1.57, while it has been sev­eral years since the Vic­tory lost a game against the Cen­tral Coast Mariners.

The favourites who do look vul­ner­a­ble are the Western Syd­ney Wan­der­ers, who are $2.10. They have won only three of their past eight games as home favourites, while their op­po­nents, Bris­bane Roar, have won six of their past 12 games as away un­der­dogs for a big profit.

Ade­laide United are $2.10 fan­cies to beat the Perth Glory on Sun­day af­ter­noon, while Syd­ney FC are clear favourites to ac­count for slow-starters New­cas­tle.
