Roar to end streak of a different kind

Brisbane Roar’s latest streak of back-to-back losses will end when they take on Wellington on Wednesday night says online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au, installing the last year’s champions as $2.05 favourites and the Phoenix as $3.40 outsiders.

“Brisbane are in the unfamiliar spot of coming off consecutive losses so it will be interesting to see how they respond,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.

“Punters are thinking it will be an even affair with most of the early money being for the Draw.”

In A-League Grand Final betting, the Central Coast Mariners continue to firm after moving into equal first on the table, from $5.50 into $4.50, while the Roar have drifted from $2.25 out to $2.60.

“Graham Arnold is a bit upset about his team not getting enough plaudits in the media but punters are clearly well aware of them with a steady stream of money coming in for the Mariners in recent weeks,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.

“Sydney FC also continue to shorten and are now into $6.00 while the biggest mover has been the Melbourne Heart who, after being a $23 chance only a fortnight ago, are now at $11.”
