Neither of these teams really have anything to play for – the Melbourne Victory will finish in third and Western Sydney will finish in eighth.
There is very little between these two sides in betting and it is currently Western Sydney that are favourites in our market.
Western Sydney have won only two of their past six matches as home favourites and they are very difficult to trust in this scenario.
Melbourne went down to Adelaide United last weekend and they have suffered back-to-back defeats only once in the past 12 months.
The Victory have won eight of their 14 games on the road this season and they are 3-1-3 as away underdogs.
Even an under-strength Victory should be too good for the Wanderers and they are excellent value at the current odds of $2.60.
Tip: Melbourne Victory at $2.40
Correct Score: Melbourne Victory 2-1 at $9.50
