A-League Week Two – Previews & Betting

August 12th, 2010

Well the 2010-11 A-League seasons went off without a bang last weekend with just one side securing a win in round one, so if you can pick the winners for this weekend then head to Ladbrokes.com.au to work out where’s best to place your punt.

Melbourne Heart, the new addition to the A-League started off their campaign with a disappointing loss to the Central Coast Mariners. The result meant the Mariners were the only team to claim all three points last weekend and lead the table.

Wellington Phoenix had a bye last round so head into this weekend hoping to kick-start their season with three points as they open against Gold Coast on Friday night.

The Gold Coast was held to a goalless draw by derby rivals Brisbane Roar last weekend in what was a disappointing opening round.

Wellington are at $2.30 for the win with Ladbrokes.com.au, while United are slightly out at $2.90 but we expect to see the Kiwis clean it up here.

Last week’s only winners were the Central Coast and they will welcome Adelaide United to the Bluetongue Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Mariners are favourites to claim the win at $2.20 with Ladbrokes.com.au while Adelaide need to overcome another nil-nil draw with the Newcastle Jets to begin their winning ways and are at $3.10 to do so.

Brisbane Roar has the bye this round, and will be closely watching the form of Sydney FC this weekend in preparation for their round three collision.

If you have a strong gut feeling as to a winner this weekend, don’t head to you TAB to place the bet. Stay online and go to Ladbrokes.com.au, there you will find a huge range of options on the A-League including overall season markets.
