Reason For Western Sydney Wanderers vs Central Coast Mariners Betting Tips

After missing out on the Australia A-League playoffs last season, Western Sydney Wanderers had high hopes of returning to form in the 2018/19 campaign. Their opening trio of matches saw them take a respectable 4 points from Perth Glory, Sydney FC, and Wellington Phoenix, but since then things have turned sour at the Spotless Stadium.

They couldn’t manage to build on their first win of the league season when they hosted Brisbane Roar, with that match in gameweek 4 ending 2-2. They have followed that with back to back defeats against Newcastle Jets and Melbourne Victory to leave them a disappointing 8th in the table.

They are only a point adrift of 6th placed Brisbane Roar, but the rest of the teams in the playoff spots are already opening up a sizeable gap. 5th placed Melbourne City are 5 points clear of them, and the leaders are 9 points ahead.

Fortunately for The Wanderers, Friday’s outing promises the chance of a maximum haul of points. Central Coast Mariners are looking atrociously bad at the moment, which is a major disappointment considering the optimism around them at the beginning of the season.

Usain Bolt was in training with them, and former A-League winning coach Mike Mulvey had recently joined the club and brought a few old fan favourites on board to bolster the team that finished rock bottom of the A-League last season. A repeat of that disappointing performance wasn’t expected.

However, after drawing their opening 2 A-League matches against Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City, the Mariners have lost their last 4 outings. They have conceded a league high 14 goals in their 6 games so far and sit rock bottom of the ladder once again.

Something we can expect on Friday is goals. Central Coast have seen an average of 3.33 goals per game so far this season, and each of their last 4 have seen at least 3 goals scored. Western Sydney Wanderers have seen an average of 2.83 goals per game, and 3 of their last 4 have been high scoring affairs. We like the look of Over 2.5 Goals here, along with a 3-1 win for the hosts.
