A-League Tipping – Saturday August 8
Perth Glory v Melbourne Victory
Jubilee Stadium | 5:00 PM (AEST)
Perth opens as rather convincing $1.67 favourites here, with the Draw at $4.20 and Melbourne out at $5. The Glory currently sits 5th in the table, with 37 points from 24 games and a plus 13 goal difference.
Melbourne is languishing second from bottom, with just 20 points and a negative 14 goal difference from their 24 games. Perth has had a mixed bag since their return to action, recording 2 wins and 2 losses in their 4 games. They looked especially good last time out, recording a 3-1 win over Western Sydney.
Melbourne have looked lifeless and disinterested in their last 3 games, losing all 3 and falling to bottom place Central Coast last time out. With the strong motivation and talent edge here, it’s tough to look past Perth at solid $1.67 odds. I think they’re good value to cover the -1 handicap at $2.75, with a 2 goal win appearing particularly likely.
A 3-1 win at $11 is probably the best scorecast value, with 2-0 at $8.50 a decent second place. Perth half-time/full-time is a solid $2.50 and I see them controlling this from start to finish. I do anticipate a high-scoring affair here, so over 2.5 at $1.63 and BTTS at $1.62 are both firmly in play.
