A-League 2016/17 Premiership Odds - Melbourne rivals favourites to win premiership

  • Melbourne Victory start the season as A-League title favourites
  • Rivals Melbourne City the biggest threat to their premiership hopes
  • Perth Glory, Sydney FC and Brisbane Roar all serious candidates

Melbourne Victory have been installed as the early favourite to win the 2016/17 A-League crown.

Three-time champions Victory ($5.00) heads the outright A-League betting with online bookmaker Sportsbet, although punters prefer cross-town rival Melbourne City to win a first premiership. 

Around 20% of the money bet on the A-League premiership market is backing the Victory to win the title, but Melbourne City has attracted more support from punters with 30% of the money backing them to win a maiden title.

Perth Glory ($6.00) is the next best backed side in title betting with 15% of the total money wagered, followed by Sydney FC ($6.50) with 10% of the money.

Titleholders Adelaide United are $10 to go back-to-back this year with Western Sydney Wanderers, the team they beat in last season's Grand Final, shorter at $9.00.

“Melbourne appears to have a grip on the A-League according to punters, with Victory and City jointly attracting 50% of the money to win this season’s crown. Victory start the season as title favourites, but more punters are backing City to claim the prize with star recruit Tim Cahill now firmly on board,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Bulmer.

Victory are $4.33 favourites to finish top of the ladder in the regular season ahead of Melbourne City and Perth Glory at $5.50.
