A-League prediction - Who will win between Central Coast and Wellington on 23rd February?

The two sides occupying the bottom two spots in the A League ladder go head to head. Both sit on 17 points each but the form side coming into the game would have to be the visitors. When I say form, I mean Phoenix have at least won a couple fo games in the last 5 whilst Mariners remain winless in the same period. The hosts are in fact winless in 5 games at home now, 

Phoenix on the other hand, whilst spending the vast majority of the season as the bottom club with their on and off field issues, have been picking up points, with a shock win at Newcastle and a good victory of perth last week in NZ. Away from home, with the exception of the Jets shock, have been very poor losing the last two trips to 4-0 scorelines. Confidence can not be high for an away win on that basis alone, and this could represent a chance for Mariners to pull away from the the basement club once again

Central Coast v Wellington Phonenix Betting Odds

Central Coast $2.20
Draw $3.60
Wellington Phoenix $3.10

Goals Betting

There may not be many. Wellington have failed to score away from home in 4 of the last 6 trips away, Central Coast whilst not prolific by any means, do score more often than not at home and home and away in the last 5 games, despite failing to pick up three points have scored each time.

Under 2.50 goals looks most likely to me and can be gained at $2.20

Goalscorer Betting

 With no consistent striker for Central Coast this should be a market to avoid unless you fancy a small stakes punt on an outsider for fun, I would rather play No Goalscorer
