2018-19 A-League: Week 22 Preview & Betting Tips

March 14th 2019, 3:18pm, By: Jake Smit

After just two games last weekend, the A-League resumes with its normal full slate of action this weekend for Match Day 22 of the 2018-19 season. As usual, we’ve analysed all the markets and have come up with our three best plays for the round. Check them out below and good luck to everyone following!

A-League Day 22 Betting Tips

Melbourne Victory vs Brisbane Roar (Saturday 7:50pm AEDT)

Melbourne Victory were disappointing in their last outing against the Newcastle Jets in Geelong. Surprisingly, they were peppered in most important statistics en route to that loss, which was just their fifth of the season. No doubt they’ll be looking for a big response this weekend when they return to Melbourne to take on the Roar.

If Victory were poor in their last outing, then Brisbane Roar were horrible. They conceded four goals on their home deck to a Wanderers outfit that had won just four games for the season prior to that fixture. The Roar have now conceded 11 goals in their past three games and will come up against a potent Victory outfit on Saturday night.

Melbourne Victory have a clear advantage in this fixture and should be far too strong at home. There really isn’t much meat on the bone in the head-to-head market, so we suggest a play on them to win by 2+ goals here.

Wellington Phoenix vs Western Sydney Wanderers (Sunday 5pm AEDT)

Wellington Phoenix put in the performance of the round last weekend on the road against the Mariners. They scored an amazing eight goals and could’ve had a couple of others had a few close misses found the back of the net. That win has the Phoenix moving into fourth spot on the table with six games remaining.

The Western Sydney Wanderers are coming off a big win of their own last time out. They put in four goals away to the Roar last weekend, with Oriol Riera bagging himself a brace. Despite the win, it’s probably too little too late for the proud Wanderers organisation who will likely fall short of a finals spot once again this season.

These teams faced each other a little over two months again in a game that finished in the advantage of Phoenix by 3-2. Now at home and in great form, we expect them to keep the ball rolling with another win and go one step further in cementing their position in the finals.

Sydney FC vs Melbourne City (Sunday 7pm AEDT)

Sydney FC proved us right last round with a classy 2-0 win over Adelaide United at home. That win keeps them right in the hunt for the minor premiership, as they’re just six points behind Perth Glory with six games remaining. They’ll need to be pretty much perfect from here on end, but they do return home for this fixture where they’ve been terrific for a number of years.

Melbourne City were good enough to snag a point in their recent meeting with the league-leading Perth Glory. However, they’ll need to start getting maximum points from their remaining games, or they may just find themselves on holidays in six weeks. As it stands, City are just four points clear of the seventh placed Jets who have found some decent form in recent weeks.

For the third time this weekend we’re more than happy to have our money on the home team. Sydney FC are always formidable at home and are very much over the odds in this fixture with a mediocre City unit. We’re keen to take them on at anything close to $2.
