The A-League in Australia is nearing the end of the regular season stage, as the team’s are currently entering week 24 of the 27 which make up this part of the season, and so far it has been a very impressive showing by Western Sydney – who currently sit on top of the table, two points ahead of last season’s winners, Central Coast Mariners.
It would still be possible to put a bet on which team will win the regular season, but most will be looking at placing an outright bet on the winners of the A-League after the Finals.
Of course the teams finishing first and second after the regular season do not enter the Finals until the semi-final stage – and at the moment this seems likely to be Sydney and the Mariners – which gives those teams a definite advantage.
This should be borne in mind by anyone betting, but should sides like Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar qualify for the finals (both of whom have two previous A-League titles) it would be a mistake to rule them out over the course of this knockout stage – even if they have to play one more game. The record of these two sides is reflected in their decent odds – 37/10 and 9/1 respectively – for the A-League title.
If you find it hard to pick a possible winner out of such successful sides as the Mariners, the Roar and the Victory, you may prefer to get your fix of football and betting by playing Soccer Safari at an online casino like LuckyNugget.
This game is one of the strangest, but most entertaining, football slot machines around, and depicts an animal world cup in the jungle. Lions, buffalo, cheetahs, giraffes and warthogs all charge around a jungle stadium, while an elephant commentates – and all this is brought to life by cutting edge video graphics. Furthermore, aside from the amusement factor, Soccer Safari also offers an $8000 maximum jackpot and a bonus game involving scoring goals from dead ball situations, which is made for football fans.
