The A-League are absolutely pumping out games at the moment with yet another mid-week round taking place over the last couple of days. We’ve now shifted our focus to this weekend’s slate, which is Match Day 14 where there’s plenty of exciting games set to play out. As usual, we’ve taken a look at them all and found our best three value plays and provided previews and betting tips for them. Good luck to everyone following!
The first game of the round that we’re interested in is the Sydney FC vs Newcastle Jets twilight fixture. This will be the second meeting between these teams this season and the first that Sydney have hosted. The first meeting ended in a 1-1 draw on Newcastle’s home deck.
Sydney FC are beginning to look like their old selves in recent weeks, winning five of their last six league matches. They’re coming off a solid 2-1 home win against Adelaide United last time out, in a match that they really could’ve won by more had they taken their chances. Their hot form has propelled them into third spot on the ladder with a chance to go within three points of top spot with a win on Saturday.
Newcastle Jets haven’t enjoyed the same recent success as their opponents in this one. The Jets are winless in their last four games, picking up just one point in that stretch against Brisbane Roar at home. It’s been a really disappointing season to date, but there’s still plenty of time for them to make their push towards the top six.
When you compare the recent success of these teams, as well as the home advantage, then there’s just no way that Sydney should be priced at nearly $2 here. We expect them to win and win comfortably.
Our second A-League play for the weekend comes from the blockbuster clash between Melbourne City and Perth Glory on Saturday night. Glory won the first meeting between these teams around a month ago, defeating City by 1-0 at home.
Melbourne City’s hot run of form came to a surprising end in their mid-week clash with the Mariners. Everyone expected City to make it four wins on the spin, but instead they were the victims of the Mariners first win of the season. Despite the loss, City are still nicely placed in fourth position on the ladder.
Perth Glory continue to prove the doubters wrong and are coming into this off of a thrilling 4-3 home win against the Wanderers. That win made it four on the spin and takes their season record to an impressive 10-2-1, which has them on top of the ladder and three points clear of their nearest challengers in Melbourne Victory.
Despite all the success that Perth Glory have achieved this season, we feel that City will be the ones who come out on top here. They’ll be desperate to bounce back from their mid-week result and have a great opportunity to do so when they return to their home deck. At home, City have only lost one game all season and have recorded impressive wins in each of their last two – we have them making it three in a row at juicy odds.
Our third and final play for Round 14 comes from the Sunday 5pm (AEDT) fixture between Melbourne Victory and Wellington Phoenix. This identical fixture was played just over two weeks prior to this meeting – ending in a 1-1 draw at AAMI Park.
Melbourne Victory are coming off their most emphatic win of the season mid-week, signalling a warning sign to the rest of the competition as we head into the back half of the season. It may have only come against Brisbane Roar, but 5-0 away from home is terrific no matter what the circumstances. That win makes it two on the spin for Victory and keeps them in second place on the ladder.
Wellington Phoenix are arguably the form team of the competition coming into this game against Victory. They’re undefeated in their last eight games and have been winners in five of those eight. Their hot form has taken them to fifth on the ladder and well inside the finals race.
We were so impressed with how the Victory played mid-week and only see them building from that game. They’ve built the reputation of being incredibly tough to beat at home, and we feel that they represent terrific value here.
