      Wellington Phoenix vs Melbourne Victory Predictions

      Wellington Phoenix have started their new campaign in pretty patchy form. They haven’t managed to get any sort of momentum going so far in the A-League.

      Recently their form has been a bit poorer than it was right at the beginning of the season, with only one of their last five games ending in victory for Wellington Phoenix, with two losses and two draws making up the rest of the results.

      This leaves Wellington Phoenix in 7th position in the A-League after picking up 11 points from their opening eight games. A win on Saturday morning could take them into the playoff finals positions.

      Melbourne Victory started their own season with just one win from their opening three Hyundai A-League games, and it looked like they might struggle to defend their Hyundai A-League titles.

      However, their 1-0 loss to Newcastle Jets seemed to turn a switch in the Melbourne Victory players’ heads.

      They have won all of their four games in the A-League since that defeat, as well as winning the semi final and the final of the FFA Cup.

      This has taken them to the top of the table, with their 16 points equalling 2nd place Western Sydney Wanderers and 3rd place Sydney FC. But the leaders have a game in hand on both of those teams thanks to their FFA Cup Final participation.

      Melbourne Victory have won four of their last five meetings with Wellington Phoenix, scoring 12 goals and conceding six. All but one of these five games ended with three or more goals.

      Five of their last six games in all competitions have seen more than two goals, whilst Wellington Phoenix have participated in goalfests in eight of their last ten outings.

      This makes odds of 8/13 for Over 2.5 Goals look really good value, and that’s what the majority of my money is going on. But there are some other valuable bets on offer too, with Melbourne Victory to Win coming in at 1/1 and a combination of the two being 7/4.
