The Australian league traditionally runs from December to June. Over the entire competition, there are 156 regular season A-League matches that bettors can bet on.
The A-League is based on a franchise system like MLS where there are no ups and downs. Teams from New Zealand can join the league, and for the upcoming 2021/22 season, you can bet on the Wellington Phoenix, with eleven other Australian teams.
At the end of the season, the top two teams in the league advance to the semi-finals of the playoffs, while the next four teams play a quarter-final match. In the event of a tie during the playoffs, there is extra time and then a possible penalty shoot-out.
Each team can only bring in a limited number of foreign players: Only five visas are granted per franchise, and there is also a salary cap system. Everything is done to promote local players.
Bet on Melbourne City and FC Sydney, who dominate the league
The team of the moment is Melbourne City, which has won the A-League for the last two regular seasons ahead of FC Sydney. Both teams have also reached the final and won one each.
Melbourne City is by far the highest-scoring team. Last season, MCFC scored 57 goals in 26 games, an average of 2.19 goals per game. On the other side of the spectrum, FC Sydney has the best defence with only 23 goals conceded.
So for long-term betting, the odds on the A-League winner are naturally in favour of Melbourne City FC, as well as Sydney FC.
