A-League multi odds, best bets and value picks – Round 9

2018/19 A-League soccer betting

MELBOURNE Victory might be second on the ladder, but Sportsbet.com.au has them pegged as $3.40 favourites to take out the title.

They remain two points adrift of Perth Glory, who share a $4.33 quote with Sydney FC in the A-League outright betting.

Melbourne City ($7) are the only other team in single digits ahead of this week’s crucial derby clash at AAMI Park.

We picked two winners out of three with our last A-League multi bet, only City’s win in Adelaide spoiling the party.

Can we go one better and deliver a return in week nine?

Perth Glory vs. Sydney FC

6pm AWST Friday, December 21 at NIB Stadium

Glory $2.50
Draw $3.30
Sydney $2.80

History says Sydney FC should win this one.

The Sky Blues have tasted victory in each of their last eight A-League games against the Glory, but does that count for anything this season?

The Perth outfit is a different beast under Tony Popovic, while Sydney are not quite the all-conquering force they were with Graham Arnold at the helm.

The draw is a tempting proposition when the odds are this tight, but form and home advantage tip the scales in the Glory’s favour.

Look for goals at both ends – a feature of Sydney’s away games in recent times.

Melbourne City vs. Melbourne Victory

7:50pm AEDT Saturday, December 22 at AAMI Park

City $3.10
Draw $3.50
Victory $2.10

City put their off-field dramas aside to register a pivotal 2-0 win away at Adelaide United last weekend.

Warren Joyce’s men will need to find another gear again on Saturday when they host the form team in the competition.

Six consecutive wins and 17 goals along the way have pundits calling this Victory team the best in the club’s short yet illustrious history.

City are one of only two teams to beat them this season, but everything is pointing to a good night out for Kevin Muscat and his charges.

Food for thought: only one of the last 10 Melbourne derbies has resulted in a clean sheet for either team.

Central Coast Mariners vs. Newcastle Jets

5pm AEDT Sunday, December 23 at Central Coast Stadium

Mariners $3.75
Draw $3.60
Jets $1.91

The Mariners are beyond a joke.

They are dead last with two points from eight games and have not tasted victory since February.

It seems last week’s loss to Wellington Phoenix was the final straw for coach Mike Mulvey, who has decided to ditch his regulars and turn to the youth squad for answers.

Newcastle have their own problems, but they shouldn’t have to do much more than turn up this week.

The question is whether the Jets can reprise the kind of form that saw them win 8-2 on their last visit to Gosford.
