A-League Round 21 Betting Tips

Sydney FC vs Western Sydney Wanderers

Friday, 8pm AEDT

Sydney FC continue to dominate the A-League and chalked up win #14 last weekend from 16 games. They’ve now won six on the spin and are undefeated in their last 10 (9W, 1D). Sydney return home this weekend where they are a perfect eight wins from eight games this season and look to extend their 13 point lead on the second-placed Perth Glory.

The Wanderers look to have finally found some winning form this season before things got really out of hand. They banged in five goals in their three goal win against Adelaide last weekend to make it two wins from their past three games. They’re starting to find the back of the net far more regularly, although they’re still without a clean sheet in their last 13 league matches.

The Wanderers may have turned their form around in recent weeks, but they’ll need to improve a whole lot further if they’re to trouble the champs this weekend. Sydney are perfect at home this season and we’ve seen nothing in their recent form to suggest that will change this weekend.

Newcastle Jets vs Perth Glory

Saturday, 5pm AEDT

The Jets have been in great form for over a month now but just can’t seem to get the reward for effort. They’ve dominated possession and shots on target in each of their past four games and have just one win to show for it. There aren’t too many games left in the season either and the Jets are still 11 points outside the top six, so wins are the only thing that matter form them from this point onwards.

After what looked like a hangover from such a great campaign last season, Perth Glory have come on really strong since a shaky start to the season. They’re undefeated in their last 10 league games (7W, 3D), which is the second longest streak behind league leaders Sydney FC. Most recently, Glory were held to a 1-1 draw against Brisbane, which was their third time sharing the spoils from their past four matches.

Both of these clubs come into this fixture on unbeaten runs (Jets 4, Glory 10), which makes this a really intriguing encounter. Glory obviously have more runs on the board this season and are sitting pretty in second, so we’re expecting the Jets to be the more desperate of the two sides, especially on their home deck. Getting near 3-1 odds for the in-form Jets to secure a win looks to be the best play here.

Melbourne Victory vs Adelaide United

Saturday, 7:30pm AEDT

Melbourne Victory had to settle for a point last weekend against the Jets, which made it six straight league matches without a win (2D, 4L). It really has been a horrid campaign for one of the most successful clubs in the A-League’s history and there haven’t been many signs that a turn in fortune is around the corner.

Adelaide United brought some winning form over to Sydney last weekend when they took on the Wanderers after claiming maximum points in four of their five preceding fixtures. However, they were no match for the home side, conceding five goals in a rout. Amazingly, the Reds are still without a draw in their 18 league games this season (9W, 9L) and their 27 points has them sitting in fifth spot on the table.

Adelaide are the form side of these two clubs despite their heavy loss last weekend. In saying that, their defence has remained shaky even when they’ve been winning games. The Reds have conceded 2+ goals in seven of their past 10 league fixtures including five goals last weekend. What does this mean? If Victory’s attack can finish a couple of the many opportunities they’ll surely be presented with, then there’s no reason they won’t bang in a couple of goals on Saturday night.
