Asian handicapMelbourne City vs Perth Glory Prediction:

Handicap Odds: 0.25

With home advantage, Melbourne City will still be the team to be evaluated better than Perth Glory in this match through a handicap of 0.25. In fact, with what the home team has shown in the first matches, this is completely a very difficult game for the visitors. 

Perth Glory looks but is not really ready for the new season as their play has not brought much continuity to the lines despite being somewhat lucky to have 3 points in the first round, evidence that they suffered two consecutive failures afterwards. 

This can be an advantage that Melbourne City can exploit when the veteran team of Australian football has quickly shown its desire to rise from the last days of competition. 

Besides, The ability to play on the strange surface of the Perth Glory is also relatively bad with only 2 wins during the last 8 marches away from home. The number is not really convincing if you know that Melbourne City has been unbeaten during the 10 games played at your home. The advantage of the field and high excitement will help Melbourne City to play actively against Perth Glory and will likely continue to gain 3 points in the upcoming round.

In the next match, the  Melbourne Team is considered the superior team when handicapping the other team.  

→ From the odds by CMD368 bookmaker, the best pick: Melbourne City -0.25 HT, Melbourne City -0.25 FT

Over Under  

Odds: 2.75

Melbourne City made a better return in the last round after beating Western United 2-1 at home, a relatively stable start to Melbourne City after the first three rounds. and it helps them temporarily get 6th place on the current chart. Obviously, this has been a huge driving force for this team in the early stages of the season this year.

Meanwhile, with Perth Glory, the visitors also got the first 3 points after the opening day. However, their performance is also relatively unconvincing when they quickly received 2 consecutive defeats and then ranked 9th in the rankings and had to march to the courtyard of a sublimated Melbourne City on competition day. 4th match will definitely be another challenge for Perth Glory. It will be a match with a relatively open stance and there will likely be many goals appearing.

Therefore, our expert believes that OVER will be optimal for investors in the next 90 minutes.
