Brisbane Roar v Sydney - Match preview and betting tips
There is not stopping Sydney at the top of A-League and it doesn't look like Brisbane have a big enough roar to prevent them gaining another three points
A-League prediction - Who will win between Brisbane Roar and Sydney on Monday 8th January?
Round 15 matches come hot on the heels of Round 14 and it would be a surprise if John Alosi has had time to put in place something that could turn a home defeat to Western Sydney Wanderers, into winners against their rivals and city neighbours. Brisbane can still find themselves a finals place but really do need to be picking up points a bit more regularly than they have been.
Roars home form is worse than away, they have won just once and picked up 5 points in from of the Brissy loyal, whilst Sydney have won five and lost once on the road. That looks like it could improve to 6-0-1
Sydney could manage only a 2-2 draw with Newcastle Jets in Round 14 but coming back from 2-1 with just a couple of minutes to go they would have been happy in maintaining the gap against the second place team
Brisbane Roar v Sydney Betting Odds
Brisbane Roar $6.00
Sydney $1.62 Over 2.50 goals has to be backed even at a price of $1.66. Sydney have been prolific in recent weeks and Brisbane can add a goal of their own which also opens up the option of Both Team to Score at $1.70 which is arguably better value. Maybe better still would be the $2.00 for the second half to contain more goals than the first.
As clear top scorer in the A-League Bobo is predictably a short price to be first on the score sheet at $3.75, but take a punt on Adrian Mierzejewski at $6.25 and Alex Brosque at $8.00
