Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
In a matchup that should prove to be another lively affair on Thursday morning, a high-flying Adelaide will travel to the Central Coast Mariners.
Starting with the hosts, while the Central Coast Mariners might still be managing to hang onto their spot at the top of the A-League table, they have found themselves in the midst of a recent blip. Despite that stunning start to the 2021 campaign that saw them win nine of their first 12 contests, Alen Stajcic’s side did put in what was a sluggish display over the weekend. Coming up against a Melbourne Victory side who are firmly in the midst of a crisis, The Mariners could only play out a 1-1 draw and they know that they missed out on a golden chance. Unable to bounce back from their 2-0 loss against a high-flying Melbourne City earlier in the month, Thursday’s hosts are without a win in their last three A-League contests, their worst run of the new campaign. However, with a reputation for their usually lively contests, it is worth highlighting five of The Mariners’ last six home fixtures have finished with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, while Central Coast might be in the midst of their worst blip, the mood in Adelaide’s camp will be at a red-hot high. Picking up the win against defending champions Sydney last weekend, The Reds have skyrocketed their way up the table and are now tipped as a genuine title contender. Managing to build off of their thumping 4-1 win against Newcastle earlier in the month, Carl Veart’s side have won each of their last six A-League contests on the spin, a run that also saw them pick up a 3-2 win against their midweek opponents back on February 19th. It should also be highlighted that Thursday’s guests hold a stunning record against The Mariners. Including back-to-back wins, Adelaide have picked up maximum points in eight of their last nine meetings. In a contest that should once again be a lively affair, we’re backing both teams to find the net.
