Australia’s football fans are now counting down the days until the new A-League season kicks off and with two weeks to go, punters are making their moves on the eve of the most anticipated season in its short history.

As you may have already heard, a couple of Socceroo legends are returning to light up the league which has sparked a bigger interest in betting, certainly during pre-season, than ever before.

I don’t think you’ll be surprised to hear that Melbourne Victory, on the back of signing Harry, have been backed off the map since the announcement of his return home. Victory has come in from $5.50 right into $4.65 before a ball is even kicked in anger.

The only real money elsewhere has been for Emmo’s Sydney FC, with their starting price of $7.50 darting into $6. There’s also been money for Adelaide United at $6.

Wha wha what? I cannot believe my eyes... the reigning champs, Brisbane, are fourth in the line of betting at $6.50! Incredible stuff. I’m still not sure anyone will get near them this season!

To the EPL now where Man City will be looking to avenge its dropping points at Craven Cottage last week when Everton visit Etihad Stadium (yes, that’s the new name… not to be confused with Melbourne’s). City are firm $1.41 favourites as David Moyes takes his troops up the M6, Everton are a whopping $8.30 - $4.30 the draw.

Our poor old Timmy is still battling for a goal, in fact he has not scored all year in the EPL! So, we’ve ramped up our special this week at a spectacular $9.00 to score at any time in this match!

Title favourites Man United head on that tricky trip to the Britannia where they are $1.50 to continue on their merry way. I think Stoke are massive at $6.70 – even $4 for the draw is worth a thought… and a loss there can really flatten your season, isn’t that right King Kenny?

Anyhow, I better wrap it up before I get hate mail from all those Reds supporters! (Just be happy guys that Stevie G is fit!)
