Round 14 is going to be very difficult to top, but there is plenty to get excited about in this week’s A-League fixture.
Sydney FC will not partake in this round of action, giving everyone a chance to catch up to Sportsbet’s $2.10 favourite in the A-League title betting.
Let’s take a look at the latest A-League odds and the best bets on offer this week at Australia’s best soccer betting sites.
Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory betting tips
Melbourne Victory is in a tough situation after sacking head coach Marco Kurz only 13 games in. But with fresh air around the club and a new direction, the four-time A-League champions may be able to save the second half of the season. Adelaide United needs to snap its four-match losing streak, and this home game may be the best chance in weeks.
Brisbane Roar vs Wellington Phoenix betting tips
Three straight wins for Wellington have lifted the New Zealand club to fourth on the A-League ladder, but Brisbane Roar will be hard to beat on their own patch. The first Saturday match will be one of the round’s best if Brisbane puts on a more attractive brand in front of a home crowd. The second half of the season may be very promising for the Nix if they win this match.
Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets betting tips
The Newcastle Jets are the only team that we will happily back against when they are on the road. Melbourne City is second on the A-League ladder and one of the best chances to beat Sydney FC to the title. A big win here against the struggling Jets could help out City’s goal differential, which is only positive because they are potent in attack.
Western United vs Central Coast Mariners betting tips
Last week’s bye interrupted a three-game losing streak for Western United, while the Central Coast Mariners kept their season alive with an extraordinary win over Melbourne Victory. Can the momentum of the Mariners outweigh the home field advantage and the extra rest that United will have? We are not so sure the NSW club can handle it.
Western Sydney Wanderers vs Perth Glory betting tips
A win could see Perth Glory usurp Melbourne City in second place on the ladder, but a loss could put below Wellington. Western Sydney wants to get back inside the top six, which a victory here would almost certainly achieve. Five straight wins make Glory the obvious choice in this match, but you can never put all your eggs in one basket in the ever-unpredictable A-League.
