Central Coast Mariners odds: 4/5 (1.80) – 55.1%

Draw odds: 3/1 (4.00) – 25.9%

Western Sydney odds: 69/20 (4.45) – 19.0%

It doesn’t surprise us that Western Sydney are the underdogs, with a lackluster win probability of 19.0% at 69/20 (4.45). What does come as a mild shock is the Mariners’ massive 55.1% win probability. We fancy Central Coast Mariners’ chance of winning, as they are the current A-League champion. As such, they deserve to be named the expected winners in this match. Moreover, we are sure we will see over 2.5 goals. Our key Central Coast Mariners vs Western Sydney prediction has a whopping 59.88% chance of success at 67/100 (1.67).

Central Coast Mariners vs Western Sydney Lineups & News

Central Coast Mariners

With three victories, one draw, and only one loss in their last five league games, the Mariners are proving to be a hard nut to crack. We anticipate seeing a win from coach Mark Jackson’s boys, as the 46-year-old manager has a perfect 1-0-0 record against this opponent.

Predicted lineup – Vukovic (GK), Doka, Hall, Kaltack, Farrell, Theoharous, Nisbet, Balard, Torres, Edmondson & Di Pizio

Western Sydney

Coach Mark Rudan’s decent 7-2-5 record against the Mariners is about to take a big hit, as two of his key players earned themselves the red cards in the Wanderers’ last game. We are talking about key defender Russell and defensive midfielder Hendrix. Their absence will surely be in favor of our Central Coast Mariners vs Western Sydney predictions this week.

Predicted lineup – Harper (GK), Kittel, Cleur, Marcelo, Clisby, Brillante, Brook, Badolato, Milanovic & Antonsson

Player to Watch: Angel Torres

Top winger Torres is the player to watch in our Central Coast Mariners vs Western Sydney predictions, as he’s the best finisher at coach Jackson’s disposal. With 11 goals to his name in the 2023/24 A-League campaign, Angel Torres is now sitting in 3rd place in the Top Goalscorer ranking of the league.

If he continues performing as consistently, he just might give Melbourne Victory’s Bruno Fornaroli a run for his money.
