We take a look at Sunday afternoons (17/03/2019) A-League match which is between Wellington Phoenix and Western Sydney Wanderers. The Wellington Phoenix go in as favourites at home but don’t really represent any value so it’s not a match we want to get too involved in.
When: Sunday 17 March, 5:00pm

The Wanderers are not going away just yet and with ten points from their last four games, they have managed to double their season total in that time.
A finals berth is still an outside chance with a ten point gap to sixth place and with the teams above them likely to drop points, they could catapult themselves into the race with a win here.
Of course you have to remember that Wellington put together the most ruthless display of the season crushing an abject Mariners side 8-2 last weekend.
Looking back at the history of this fixture, there have been plenty of goals with the winner scoring three or more in six of the last seven meetings, so if you want a bit of extra value look into the total goals market.
That being said, with Wellington at or around even money in the head to head market, that’s more than enough to back in with confidence.
