A-League prediction - Who will win between Melbourne City and Adelaide United on 21st January

3rd versus 5th in Sunday's A-League game. Melbourne remain in decent enough form after a bit of a blip in form. Unbeaten in three with wins at home and away, they were held to a 2-2 draw with Central Coast last weekend. Their home form may not be as good as they might like recording losses to both Perth and bitter rivals Victory in the last five home matches

Adelaide have been pretty dangerous on the road picking up 3 wins, and ten points from the last five 15 points available, this includes wins over Perth, Melbourne Victory and Central Coast. They too are unbeaten in 3 matches recording most lately draws with both Sydney sides including last weeks clean sheet against the table toppers.

United off a threat here and could be better value than the $3.75 being offered to win. Although they have lost in the last two meetings between the sides, and the last twice at this venue

Goals Betting

City have won the last two games between the sides to nil, but I fancy Adelaide to score at least once here - Under 2.50 is $1.95, whilst the Over option is $2.00. It's not an easy one to call, but I am happy to call goals in this game, so take $2.00 for the latter, I think it is better value than the $1.80 for both teams to Score

Goalscorer Betting

Ross McCormack is just $3.75 to score first, and is taking up so much of the market that there is some value in looking elsewhere - Marcin Budzinski is $9.00 and George Blackwood is double figures at $12.00

A League Live Stream

Illegal live streams are not the most reliable and we recommend this A league Live Stream information as a reliable alternative. Being able to watch the game live and watch your bets as they happen is exciting, but bear in mind all streams are slightly behind the real-time action, so if using for in-play betting, then please approach with caution.
