The Wolf correctly selected the A-League multi last weekend, paying a healthy $4.61 for Melbourne Victory to defeat the Western Sydney Wanderers (1-2) and Melbourne City to get the win over the Newcastle Jets (2-1).
The Wolf takes a look at all the action from Matchday 12 of the A-League.

WESTERN SYDNEY WANDERERS (WLDLL) ($2.02) v WELLINGTON PHOENIX (WWWDD) ($3.45)
Have the Wanderers forgotten what they are playing for?
The pressure has reached boiling point in Western Sydney with Ante Covic declaring the season a ‘write off’ after an incredibly poor start under new manager Markus Babbel. There is no doubt that the Wanderers players would have seen Covic’s comments and after accusing them of lacking hunger and leadership, the Wolf thinks they will respond as best they can against the Phoenix.
It won’t be easy though with Wellington in a rich vein of form under Mark Rudan which has seen them climb to 6th on the A-League table, equal with Adelaide United and just 4 points behind Melbourne City.
The Wolf thinks that both teams will find the back of the net in this match. Wellington were strong in defence on the weekend, holding the Reds to a 0-0 draw with just 10 men. If the Wanderers are going to win they will need Bonevacia to clean up his final pass and for Oriol Riera to find at least one goal.
BEST BETS: Western Sydney Wanderers ($2.02), Both teams to score – Yes ($1.58)
PERTH GLORY (WWLWW) ($2.66) v SYDNEY FC (LWWWW) ($2.54)
Brosque is fine form as the Sydney FC head to the west
Goals galore for these two teams on Matchday 11 with the Sky Blues defeating the Mariners 5-2 and the Glory coming from behind to defeat the Roar 2-4.
Both teams will be missing key players with Chris Ikonomidis (Glory) and Rhyan Grant (Sydney FC) away with the Socceroos. Daniel De Silva returns after being unavailable to play against the Mariners. It was defensive errors and a lack of speed from players like Dino Djulbic which cost the Glory last time these two sides played. Jason Davidson should have a bigger impact with Grant out of the side.
The Wolf thinks that the Sky Blues can get their second win of the season against the Glory.
