A-League Tips – Saturday July 25

Wellington Phoenix v Adelaide United

Venue: Bankwest Stadium | Start: 5:00 PM AEST

The Phoenix open as $2.20 favourites here, with Adelaide at $3.30 and the Draw out at $3.60. Wellington has had a rather good season thus far, currently sitting 3rd on 39 points. They’ve won 4 of their last 5 contests, including a 2-1 win over Perth last time out.

Adelaide finds themselves 3 places behind in 6th, having garnered 30 points and a -7 goal difference through 22 games. They looked solid in their return to action last time out, beating 4th place Brisbane 1-0.

I can see this being a rather evenly-matched game but have to give the slight edge to the Phoenix. $2.20 is decent value for the outright Phoenix win, which I’d expect to be by a single goal.

On the scorecast side, Wellington 1-0 at $10 and 2-1 at $8.50 look like especially good value. I’ll take the 2-1 myself, with over 2.5 and BTTS both also solid choices.

Head to Head: Wellington
Half-time/Full-time: Draw/Wellington
Over/Under 2.5: Over
Both Teams Score: Yes

Melbourne Victory v Western United FC

Venue: Bankwest Stadium | Start: 7:35 PM AEST

We’ve got an intriguing clash here between two Victorian sides that have both underperformed this season. The Victory open as narrow $2.40 favourites here, with Western United at $3 and the Draw at $3.60.

This is the first game for both sides since the return to play and it’ll be interesting to see how the break has affected them. Melbourne haven’t had the season they would’ve hoped for, sitting in 2nd last place with 20 points from 21 games.

Western United have been somewhat better, securing 27 points and a positive goal difference from their 20 games. As far as the odds go, I think $3.60 for the Draw is definitely +EV here. A scoreless draw at $12 isn’t bad, but I particularly like 1-1 at $7.

I can see both sides getting on the scoresheet here, but wouldn’t necessarily go over 2.5.

Head to Head: Draw
Half-time/Full-time: Draw/Draw
Over/Under 2.5: Under
Both Teams Score: Yes
