Bookmakers in Australia are gearing up for the season restart of the Australian A-League, the men’s professional football league Down Under.
The league, which is currently the highest level in the country and the main competition for the sport, is currently considering possible locations for the remaining matches of the 2019-2020 season to be played, including Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Once the location is decided, the last remaining fixtures will be organised, including current league leaders Sydney FC, who are 8 points clear of second place Melbourne City and with three games in hand.
In addition, upon selecting a location, it would result in every player from every club, including non-playing staff, would need to travel and stay in the designated destination for the remainder of the season.
A spokesperson for Football Federation Australia said:
“Queensland is one of several states under consideration to serve as the location for the remainder of the A-League 2019-20 season.”
According to multiple bookmakers in Australia, including online casino-sportsbook hybrids, league leaders Sydney FC are 5/6 favourites to be the overall winner with Melbourne City at 3/1 and third favourite Perth Glory at 5/1 on average.
As soon as the A-League resumes business, bettors will be able to wager on an array of betting markets, including top goal scorer, which is a close content between top three leading scorers in the league MacLaren of Melbourne, Le Fondre of Sydney and Berisha of Western United.
The news of the season restart comes less than one week after the German Bundesliga restarted behind closed doors with matches being played without spectators. In England, one of the world’s biggest football leagues; the Premier League, is also looking to restart in June 2020 after top flight clubs resumed training this week.
