Wednesday’s Football Bet of the Day see’s me delve back into the Australian A-League and I like the look of the home side to score at least twice against a side who tend to struggle on their travels.
Adelaide United vs Western Sydney Wanderers
⏰ Wednesday 16th March, 08:35
Adelaide United will look to go within three points of leaders Melbourne City, as they host Western Sydney Wanderers at Coopers Stadium. The hosts are currently in 3rd position, whilst the visitors are 10th, just two points above bottom side Perth Glory.
Adelaide made it three wins on the bounce last time out, as they scored a late winner to defeat Newcastle Jets 2-1. Carl Veart’s side have now lost just one of their last six fixtures in the league, winning four of them, including their last two at home. Adelaide have found the back of the net in 15/17 of their matches this season, including in all seven at home. Only league leaders Melbourne City have scored more goals in the A-League than Adelaide, with The Reds finding the back of the net on 27 occasions.
Western Sydney Wanderers suffered their fifth defeat from their last seven matches last time out, as they lost 3-1 away to 4th-placed Macarthur. Mark Rudan’s side have struggled on their travels this season, with them losing five of their last six away from home, including each of their last four. Western Sydney Wanderers have kept five clean sheets in the league this season, however just one of those have come on their travels. The Wanderers have conceded 23 goals so far this season, with 15 of those coming away from home.
Bet of the Day
Adelaide United come into this winning four of their last five and will be confident of securing another three points as they host poor-traveler’s Western Sydney Wanderers. Mark Rudan’s visitors have lost five of their last six fixtures away from home in the A-League, conceding 15 goals. The Reds have scored in all seven of their home matches in the league this season, scoring two or more in five of them and look a good bet to score another brace against a Western Sydney Wanderers side that’s conceded on multiple occasions in five of their last six matches away from home.
