Central Coast Mariners - Melbourne City
Central Coast Mariners have had a terrible season, even by their usually low standards. They currently sit seven points adrift at the bottom of the league having lost their last nine games in a row, scoring just seven goals in that time. The side have picked up just 13 points all season and finishing at the foot of the table looks all but guaranteed. Central Coast have scored less than a goal a game this season with the team really struggling in the final third as they lack a genuine goalscorer. Their efforts at the other end of the pitch haven’t been much better with 47 goals conceded, a rate of 2.23 goals per game. 15 of those have come in their last five games with The Mariners really struggling in recent weeks. It’s hard to see Central Coast taking anything from this game with their form being as poor as it has been in recent weeks. Melbourne City should expect to take maximum points from this match and we’re backing them to do just that. We think the home side fail to make and impression on this game and we think Melbourne City are the best bet on the handicap market, which is currently set at -1. This should be a reasonably easy victory for a Melbourne City side that have scored with great regularity at times this season and we don’t think Central Coast have anywhere near enough to test them this weekend.
