A-LEAGUE analyst Andrew Francis (@ALeagueAndy) has taken his expert eye to the weekend’s action from Down Under, picking out a best bet from Sunday morning's action.
Newcastle Jets v Brisbane Roar | Sunday 9th December 2018, 06:00 | BT Sport
Both sides picked up disappointing losses last weekend and they will be looking to bounce back but it could prove to be a very close game with the two teams appearing likely to miss their star players. Ronald Vargas has been ruled out for Newcastle, whilst it’s looking unlikely that Adam Taggart will be fit enough to start following a groin problem for Brisbane.
That means that Jason Hoffman will be given a role further forward once again and at 7/1 (Bet365) to be First Goalscorer he could be a value shot to end the weekend on a high.
There also looks to be a little value on Tobias Mikkelsen to open the scoring at 16/1 (Bet365) with the Dane playing high up the pitch and getting closer to finding the net since his debut a few weeks ago.
Back both players each-way and we’ll enjoy a third of the odds pay-out should they get on the scoresheet but not break the deadlock.
