SATURDAY morning sees the Aussie action return and here's some pointers to some of the games that should see goals galore.
The Western Premier League returns this week and this is one where we'll be finding plenty of action as the season progresses. We also have a few tasty looking games in the Brisbane Premier and Queensland Premier that could boost the weekend banks nice and early.
BRISBANE PREMIER LEAGUE
IPSWICH KNIGHTS v PENINSULA POWER , Saturday, 9am
Peninsula Power started off the season with a 5-1 victory at home to North Star. Power were 4-0 up by half-time and undoubtedly took the foot off the gas in this one as with a scoreline like that you would've been expecting that game to hit double figures. North Star are a poor side but the opposition for today are just as weak.
Ipswich Knights started the season with a 3-2 win away to Logan Lighting but you can't read too much into this as Logan were a second tier side last season, as were Knights and they only find themselves in top tier due to the restructuring that has gone on in Brisbane.
Power should put this lot to the sword without much fuss here and with Ipswich having conceded 8 goals twice in pre-season friendlies this game could see a big scoreline. May even look at Power Team Goals if offered in-play here and there's value in it.
EASTERN SUBURBS v UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND, Saturday, 9am
Eastern Suburbs started the season with an astonishing 5-0 win away at last season's beaten Grand Finalists Rochedale Rovers. Easts had a decent pre-season but no-one would've seen that result coming.
Uni started the season in quite the opposite fashion, going down 5-0 to Capabala Bulldogs, a side who were beaten 6-3 by Brisbane Wolves on Friday . The H2H between these two is nothing special, but Easts look strong this year while Uni will struggle against the better sides, especially away from home.
QUEENSLAND PREMIER LEAGUE
BRISBANE CITY v BRISBANE STRIKERS, Saturday, 9.30am
City opened their season by going down 6-2 to local rivals Brisbane Olympic in this newly formed league in a match we tipped as our first bet on MrFixitsTips. City are a young side and should struggle badly here against Strikers who opened their account with a 2-1 win away to Redlands and who beat Olympic during the pre-season Silver Boot tournament. Strikers are a big price at 1/2 with Bet365 and the 7/5 for HT/FT is tempting.
WESTERN AUSTRALIA PREMIER LEAGUE
SORRENTO v NTC WEST, Saturday, 8am
Sorrento won the WPL Grand Final last season and face up to bottom side NTC, which is a team made up of player registered with the National Training Centre in that region. NTC sides are generally youngsters and the West side struggled badly last season, including being beaten 8-0 by Sorrento in the second game of the season.
Sorrento didn't have the greatest pre-season but won the Charity Shield match 4-2 the other week and look to have refound a bit of form in front of goal just in time for this match, the opening game of the league season. NTC are a bit of the unknown but this should be one-way traffic. Over 4.5 on the goal line is currently 4/5 and should stroll home here.
Ipswich v Power… Over 1.5,2HT
Easts v Uni… Over 1.5HT
2.28/1 double (both on the FIRST HALF GOAL LINE market)
Add in Brisbane City v Brisbane Strikers… Over 3.5FT goal line
