      Melbourne Victory vs Central Coast Mariners Predictions

      Melbourne Victory are certainly going about defending their Hyundai A-League titles the right way, and have started putting together a good looking winning streak after a slightly shaky start to the season.

      They played out a goalless draw with Adelaide United in their opening league game of the season before beating cross city rivals Melbourne City and then losing to the in form Newcastle Jets.

      But they have since won four games on the trot in all competitions, which includes an FFA Cup Final win over Perth Glory and impressive victories against Wellington Phoenix and Sydney FC in the A-League.

      Melbourne Victory have scored 12 goals in these four matches, only conceding twice and keeping three clean sheets.

      This leaves them in 3rd place in the A-League, with leaders Brisbane Roar three points ahead of them and 2nd placed Sydney FC a point better off. They are level on points with Western Sydney Wanderers and Newcastle Jets below them. They do have a game in hand over all of these teams though.

      Central Coast Mariners opened their A-League campaign with an impressive looking win over Perth Glory, but since then things have gone downhill.

      They haven’t won any of their following five games in the A-League, with a trio of losses against Brisbane Roar, Melbourne City, and Sydney FC preceding back to back draws against Wellington Phoenix and Newcastle Jets.

      This isn’t looking particularly good for the visitors, and it gets worse when we take a look at the recent history between these teams.

      Melbourne Victory have won all of their last five matches against Central Coast Mariners, scoring 14 goals on the way.

      Melbourne Victory have won each of their last four games by more than one goal, and they have done the same in four of their last five matches against Central Coast Mariners. This makes odds of 20/21 for a Melbourne Victory -1 Handicap Win look very good value, so that’s what I’m backing alongside a 3-0 correct score prediction at 9/1.
