IT’S been a quiet week for Jordan but he’s identified some bets he fancies in Australia and a goals double from tonight’s World cup qualifiers.
He says: Looking ahead to the weekend I already have my eye on something. Though the internationals are here, some will be ecstatic to see the return of Australia’s A-League.
Those that know this league will tell you it’s goals galore and although teams might take some time to get going I’m hoping my favourite side from last year won’t.
Melbourne City have had a major revamp over the summer losing perhaps the league’s best player last season in Aaron Mooy who returned to Manchester City. They do, however, still have Bruno Fornaroli who when I saw play reminded me of a Suarez/Aguero type striker and flourished in his first season.
Socceroo legend Tim Cahill also made the move from China so Melbourne will have plenty of focus on them this season but the veteran will miss the opener as he’s in the Aussie squad.
While I do think there will be goals both sides will be without key men but depth should prevail in a league where generally any side can score three or four on their day. BTTS & Over 2.5 pays 4-5 at bet365 with Melbourne win priced around 8-11 and 4-5 to score twice.
While it’s not bad if Melbourne are to score twice you’d think Fornaroli will get one of them. He scored 24 goals in 27 games last season and I’m taking him to start the campaign with a goal against a side who will be hoping to keep out the goals with only two clean sheets on home soil last season.
Saturday – Australia A-League – 7.35am
Bruno Fornaroli (Melbourne City) to score
– 2.2 points
Another market I’m taking is Perth Glory RT2 Goals. They were very good at home last season and have kept the majority of their talent up front, with the Mariners under new management after conceding 70 goals last season, 38 of them on the road.
Saturday – Australia A-League – 12pm
Perth Glory RT2 Goals
– 2.75 points
Saturday 5pm and 7.45pm
Northern Ireland/San Marino
Over 1.5 Second Half Goals Double
87-100 @– 5 points
