Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said it was hard to see Melbourne being beaten.
“Central Coast has not won a competitive match since New Year’s Eve last year,” said Sullivan.
“While history says they are one of the most competitive sides in the A-League it’s a big ask to face an attacking line-up which includes Hernandez, Thompson and Allsopp, backed up by Fabbiano.
“I expect Melbourne to firm from the $1.65 currently on offer.”
“At $3.25 and $3.00 respectively these sides look tremendous value,” said Sullivan.
“The Glory and Gold Coast have clearly been the best backed sides to win the title and despite both playing away from home, they will be keen to make an early statement.”
