The 2009 A-League season gets underway on Thursday night in what is shaping up to be the most exciting season so far. With the addition of the North Queensland Fury and Gold Coast United it should be a hotly contested competition.
In regard to the betting on the A-League 2009 season; there is certainly some great odds to take advantage of. Because of the uncertainty that surrounds each of the teams, the odds vary quite considerably.
In my opinion, the best way to attack the betting for the A League is to take a look at the teams on paper. Hands down, Gold Coast United win in this aspect. Whether they can put everything together on the field is another story. They do have a solid coach in Miron Bleiberg and wealthy owner in Clive Palmer backing the club.
TAB Sportsbet have the best coverage and odds of the 2009 A-League season. Futures markets are now open that include the winner of the A-League and the wooden spoon.

Best Bets for 2009 A-League season – Jump on Gold Coast United to win @ $6.50. They haven’t lost a pre-season match and look the goods. As soon as they string a few wins together those odds will be long gone. Look out for Jason Culina this season, he will pull all the strings.
Wooden Spoon – I think this has to go to the Wellington Phoenix – again. They have lost their star player in Shane Smeltz and haven’t recruited well at all in the off season. I can’t see them having much success this season whatsoever.
Dark Horse – This goes to the Perth Glory. They have a new owner and have strengthened their squad considerably in the off season. They now have 3 Socceroos playing for them and a very solid defense with Chris Coyne back there. These guys should cause more than their share of upsets this season.
Other future betting markets for A League 2009 – There is some definite value here at Sportsbet. You should be able to make a killing. The head to head betting to see who will finish top by the end of the season is an easy place to make money.
My recommendation is to be on Gold Coast United to beat the Brisbane Roar. The Roar will go backwards this year after losing their star player to United. They will not place well this season. Get on Gold Coast United now. They are paying $2.05. Easiest money you can make.

There are plenty of other head to head matches to be on at Sportsbet. I just gave you my pick which is almost a certainty. All you have to do is do some research into the teams and find out which ones you think will perform and which ones won’t. Betting has never been son easy.
The season kicks of on Thursday night between Melbourne and the Central Coast. be wary of these first round matches as there will be teams struglging to gel and perform early on. You can bet on more than just the result of the games. Some of the other markets include betting on the first team scorer and picking the final score.
The other first round matches are Adelaide vs Perth, North Queensland vs Sydney, Brisbane vs Gold Coast and Newcastle vs Wellington.
