3 Big Tips for the A-League opening weekend

Five exciting matches contested across three days gives A-League punters plenty to be happy about this weekend and we've chosen very carefully 3 big tips for you to follow.

For a start, there's Adelaide v Sydney FC in the 2018/19 A-League season opener on Friday and if that seems enough to get excited about there's the match of the round with Saturday night’s Melbourne Derby and Sunday brings Perth Glory at home against Western Sydney.


Now, everybody knows what Sydney have accomplished in recent years and they've made plenty of punters happy too so we are not going to desert them now.

Adelaide have already qualified for the FFA Cup final and they will be out to make a storming start to the season but we are drooling at the prospect of $2.30 odds on Sydney to dominate this match as their own.

Who can predict how the pendulum will swing in Saturday nights Melbourne Derby? Prepare to be entertained with an outstanding contest.

Both sides have made several key signings in the offseason but expecting everything to suddenly click is probably a bit much so given this is the first week of the season a draw seems the obvious choice at a potentially lucrative $3.60 price.

The Glory camp are not quite the same machine as last season, the club has the best chance of reviving this season with several good signings and not on the cheap. New manager Tony Popovic with a proven track record should recognise the task in hand.

Western Sydney Wanderers have been in the doldrums for too long and that is why we have chosen very carefully to back the Glory in this match.
