For the first time in what feels like forever, Wellington are no longer just the whipping boys that you can’t even back against because their opponents are at such short odds.
Having proved a point with a draw in Melbourne, their case as a contender would be further strengthened coming away from Coopers Stadium with all three points.
Adelaide have not looked great lately and needed a late penalty to get by an uneven Newcastle side last weekend and could be ripe for picking here.
If Wellington do win this game you can expect much shorter odds in the future so if you want to get ahead of the curve here, back the Nix to pick up a big away win.
