It could also be good news for a Melbourne United outfit that has had a serious form slump, losing six out of their past eight games, and now must win all three of their remaining matches if they are any chance to play in the finals.
Playing the Illawarra Hawks on Friday night should be one to pencil in a much-needed win.
Illawarra has lost their past eight matches and have lost nine out of their past 11 games against Melbourne United.
All three meetings between the two sides this year have resulted in a 10+ margin win to Melbourne United and they should be able to replicate this form to give themselves a chance to keep their season alive on Saturday.
The line of -13.5 is the best value bet of the game for mine.
Tip: Melbourne United at $1.08
