Don’t call this the Sky Blue Derby, even though Sydney has won each of the last six A-League matches between the two.
A lot of those games have not even been close with all bar one of those wins coming by two or more goals and four of those six have been to nil.
When these sides met in November, Sydney cruised to a 3-0 win and the Sky Blues will be desperate for a repeat of that result after losing to the Victory on Australia Day.
At even money in a game like this you have to feel good about backing Sydney.
Tip: Sydney FC at $1.91
Correct Score: Sydney FC 2-1 at $8.00
