Betting round-up: Roar very short against Reds

Brisbane are heavy favourites for their clash against Adelaide, while Western Sydney are also very short against Sydney

There is plenty of value on offer for punters in the A-League at the weekend with three games to choose from and the top three teams in action.

Brisbane Roar will host Adelaide United at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Mike Mulvey's men the $1.36 favourites with bet365 to post their third consecutive win.

Adelaide are rated an outside chance to take three points against the league leaders at $7.50, with the draw at $5.00.

Those tempted to back the first goal-scorer can take the returning Besart Berisha at the short price of $2.62, while Henrique, Kofi Danning and Thomas Broich are all at the more-attractive odds of $6.50.

The Sydney derby between the Western Sydney Wanderers and Sydney FC is sure to be fiercely contested as both sides look to stamp their authority on the fledging rivalry.

The second-placed Wanderers are the $1.50 favourites to win on Saturday night, with Frank Farina's side considered outsiders at $6.00 and the draw at $4.33.

While there has never been more than two goals scored in a Sydney derby, over 2.5 is paying $1.80 for this clash, with less than 2.5 at $2.00.


Take under 2.5 goals in the Sydney derby at $2

Back Thomas Broich to opening the scoring in the Roar-Adelaide game at $6.50

Wellington Phoenix, searching for their fourth win in a row, have been installed as favourites to beat the Central Coast Mariners at Westpac Stadium on Sunday.
