Melbourne City are the shortest-priced favourites in the A-League this weekend and can atone for their shock loss to the Central Coast Mariners earlier this season.
Melbourne City have won six of their past eight matches as home favourites and they are always tough to beat in front of their home fans.
Central Coast produced one of their best performances of the season to beat the Western Sydney Wanderers last weekend and they have definitely improved in the last couple of months.
In saying that, they have only won one of their past 13 matches as away underdogs and it is impossible to back them with any real confidence.
Melbourne City will get the job done, but there is no value at their current odds.
