2015 A-League Grand Final Betting Preview

Season 10 of the A-League reaches its conclusion on Sunday afternoon when Premiers’ Plate winners the Melbourne Victory host Sydney FC at AAMI Park the 2015 Grand Final.

In what is a replay of the 2010 Grand Final, the Victory are firm favourites to secure a third Championship and join Brisbane Roar atop the list of most successful A-League clubs, but are sure to face a tough task in Sydney FC and the 35th edition of The Big Blue.

Melbourne Victory have remained steady in head-to-head betting markets this week at a quote of $2.25 to win the A-League Grand Final in regular time, but we believe a match of this calibre calls for the stakes to be increased! Take advantage of our special $2.70 market for the Victory to win in regular time! Max bet $20.

The Victory and Sydney FC have met three times this season for three draws; a total of 12 goals scored between the two clubs in those fixtures.

Goal scorer markets always figure as a lucrative betting play in football matches, and of course the 2015 A-League Grand Final is no exceptional to the rule. The league’s two leading goal scorers in Mark Janko (Sydney FC, 16 goals) and Besart Berisha (Melbourne Victory, 14 goals) have played huge roles in their teams’ qualification for the Grand Final and will do everything in their power to end their campaigns on the score sheet.

What undoubtedly makes this Grand Final one of the most highly anticipated in the history of the A-League is the countless scoring avenues both teams are offered.

Veteran hero Archie Thompson has found the back of the net 11 times for the Victory this season and offers excellent value for money to open Grand Final scoring at $9 odds, or $3.25 at any other time.

Bernie Ibini has scored in his last four games for Sydney FC, while Alex Brosque has arguably found career-best form in netting six in his last four for the Sky Blues. We’re offering Ibini to open the scoring on Sunday at $10, while Brosque can be taken at $9 in the same market.

Interestingly, The Victory have gone on to win the A-League Championship on both occasions they have lifted the Premier’s Plate, but Sydney FC has registered an incredible away record in season 10 and offer exceptional value as outsiders in head-to-head markets at a current quote of $3 to win in regular time.

We’re offering the best odds on the widest range of markets for the 2015 A-League Grand Final; covering everything from margins to which team will receive the first corner kick and the means of the first goal scored.
