Footy fans may think the betting fun starts on Friday night this weekend, with Fulham entertaining Charlton in the Championship, but with the A League in full swing it’s Friday morning that marks the starting point.
This week sees Brisbane Roar take on Sydney FC in front of the BT Sport cameras at 10am and those looking for an early morning opportunity need look no further, with the game set to be streamed live by Ladbrokes.
Providing you’ve got a TV to hand at work, or an online Ladbrokes account, this match promises to be more fun than a Fosters-fuelled beach barbie stacked with Sheilas. Mate!
Here are the three bezzie bets.
Sydney have enjoyed an unbeaten start to the league, while Brisbane have suffered back-to-back defeats but that shouldn’t put you off backing the hosts for victory.
Roar have won five and drawn one of the last eight meetings with Sydney and are always good for a home triumph.
Mike Mulvey’s men have won six of their last eight at Castlemaine Road while the visitors have taken maximum A League points just once in six attempts on the road.
Odds-on this selection may be but Brisbane v Sydney games always deliver on the goal front, with 30 scored in the last eight clashes.
Brisbane have scored 20 of those strikes and always rack up a decent total when hosting Sydney.
4-0, 3-1 and 4-2 home wins over Graham Arnold’s side have helped take the goal total over the 2.5 mark six times in the last eight clashes.
The Roar usually start with a bang when on hosting duties against Sydney and have now gone in leading at the break on three of the last four occasions when the Allianz Stadium outfit have travelled to Queensland.
