A-League prediction - Who will win between Sydney and Central Coast on 20th January?

Sydney are very very short at just $1.33 but there can be no surprise in that given the clear league leaders have home advantage against Central Coast who are slipping down the table and in the midst of a seven game winless run.

Plainly Sydney are the best team in the league and far stronger than Central Coast but $1.33 really doesn't do a great deal for me. Sydney should win this game, but they should have scored against Adelaide last week, and should have done better against central Coast back in November when going down 2-0 and failing to score for the only time this season.

For the huge investor, $1.07 might not look a bad prospect to cover the double chance, Sydney or Draw but you would have to be a serious player to consider it.

Mariners have had a pretty tough run of it, playing both Melbourne sides and Newcastle Jets in the last three and is certainly just as tough here, $5.50 for the draw and $10.00 for the away win will tempt a few in. $10 is always dangerous price to offer fr an upset because they do happen but in all reality, this would be a massive shock and a bigger shock than a $10.00 chance, Get $16.00 and I might have a buck on it

Sydney surely will walk through this

Goals Betting

Tricky With recent weeks performance, one would like to suggest that Sydney could land the Over 2.50 on their own, but confidence is tempered somewhat by the failure to score at Adelaide last week and a price of just $1.57 doesn't drag me in either. 

Both Teams to score is only $1.90 either way and I am not about to make a call on that either, there must be a better value bet on this match.

Sydney to win to Nil at $2.20 might be a bet. They've kept only 2 clean sheets at home this season, but Mariners have scored only once in the last 4 away games

Goalscorer Betting

Bobo at $3.50 is the obvious favourite and in all honesty, for a small stake probably the only worthwhile bet of the game
