A-League Round 9 Tips

Wellington Phoenix vs Western United – Wollongong Stadium

Wellington Phoenix ($3.8)

Western United ($2.3)

Draw ($3)

Wellington Phoenix will be doing all they can to climb away from wooden spoon danger as they take on Western United. With just 1 win from their opening 6 games played, Phoenix are in a bit of funk at the foot of the table, and they look to have a real job on their hands if they are to climb into play-off contention this term. Western United meanwhile have started the season in contrasting fashion and find themselves flying high in 3rd place. United should be bang up for this one and if they find their groove, they could pick up a good win on the road.

Betting tip: Western United to win the match ($2.3)Bet @ Sportsbet

Western United to win 2-1

Sydney FC vs Perth Glory – Jubilee Stadium

Sydney FC ($1.54)

Perth Glory ($6.25)

Draw ($4.5)

Sydney FC are slowly finding their feet this term and they will be looking forward to putting on a performance for their hands in front of their home fans against Perth Glory. The blues have been improving in recent weeks and with the sides above them faltering, they will be hopeful of a play-off push at least this term. Perth Glory meanwhile, have endured a very tough start to the campaign and they have only managed one win so far this term. They lost to Brisbane Roar in midweek, and this looks even tougher on paper, making Sydney FC strong favourites.

Betting tip: Sydney FC to win the match ($1.54)Bet @ Sportsbet

Sydney FC to win 2-1

Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne City – Central Coast Stadium

Central Coast Mariners ($3.15)

Melbourne City ($2.23)

Draw ($3.8)

Defending champions Melbourne City will be eager to get some momentum into their season, as they travel to Central Coast Mariners. For the hosts, it has been another strong start to the season, and they look to be carrying genuine play-off aspirations on the Central Coast once more. Melbourne City meanwhile have found life tough going so far in defence of their A-League title, but they have plenty of quality throughout their squad and they should find their feet sooner rather than later. This should be a lot closer than many people anticipate but Melbourne City should ultimately prevail on the road here.

Betting tip: Melbourne City to win the match ($2.23)Bet @ Sportsbet

Melbourne City to win 2-1

Brisbane Roar vs Adelaide United – Suncorp Stadium

Brisbane Roar ($2.38)

Adelaide United ($3)

Draw ($3.5)

Brisbane Roar will be hoping to build on their first win of the season, as they take on Adelaide United at the Suncorp Stadium. Roar had endured a very tough start to the campaign but the midweek triumph over Perth Glory has the potential to be a catalyst for the rest of the campaign for Warren Moon’s side. Adelaide United meanwhile have been consistently inconsistent this term. Winning just 1 of 8 games played but with 5 draws in that run, their league position isn’t too bad, they will be all too aware of the need to start picking up wins however. This could be a very good game and with very little to split the sides, a draw looks the most likely outcome.

Betting tip: The match to finish as draw ($3.5)Bet @ Sportsbet

1-1 Draw
