The Round of 32 of Australia’s FFA Cup continues on Wednesday night with four matches across four different states.
The equal shortest priced favourite of the night sees the holders, Sydney FC ($1.16) head 13 kilometres south of the city to take on NSW National Premier League club Rockdale City FC ($13).
After being given the reins back in May when Graham Arnold was appointed as Socceroos head coach, Steve Corica has guided the Sky Blues to a pair of wins in pre-season fixtures against Dunbar Rovers and the Sutherland Sharks.
The Suns are managed by former Sydney FC midfielder Paul Reid and currently sit in fifth spot on the NSW NPL ladder, having collected nine wins and two draws from 19 games.
Down in Melbourne, Heidelberg United are $1.22 to progress with a win over Charlestown City Blues ($11).
Having knocked out A-League side Perth Glory in the Round of 32 last season they eventually lost to Adelaide United at the quarterfinal stage.
Speaking of Adelaide United, they are $1.61 to defeat Central Coast Mariners ($5.50) in the evening’s only all A-League encounter.
The Reds tuned up for this clash with a 2-0 win over NPL side Adelaide Olympic thanks to goals from Apostolos Stamatelopoulos and Carlo Armiento while the Mariners have opted for a training camp instead of any pre-season fixtures to this point.
The tightest betting match on Wednesday sees Cairns FC ($2.14) hosting Armadale ($2.87) at Barlow Park.
The Queensland club have never progressed past the Round of 32, but this represents a great opportunity to do so with Armadale sitting seventh on the West Australian NPL ladder.
