A-League Tips & Predictions

Get all your A-League predictions here with Football Tips. Our team of tipsters bring you the latest punts and picks from the Australian national league.

The A-League is the top tier of Australian soccer (as opposed to ‘football’, which refers to Aussie rules Down Under). Teams from across Australia and New Zealand battle it out every summer to be crowned winners of the Grand Final showdown. Formed in 2004, the A-League is growing, with more teams joining in the coming seasons. We’ll bring you all the A-League footy tips as the league expands, covering every round of fixtures.

You’ll find a huge range of betting predictions and detailed match previews for the key fixtures in the Australian top flight. Our tipsters also post plenty of pre-season analysis, giving you some great early odds and outright A-League predictions for title winners, top scorers and more.

Whether you’re an A-League fanatic or a football punter looking for a new league to wager on, we post free betting tips every week.

Our A-League predictions are informed by robust sporting insights around the upcoming fixtures – taking in current form, potential injuries and head-to-head records. With our analysis, you’re more likely to make winning bets.

Take a punt on a selection of winners with an A-League accumulator, or hedge your A-League predictions on an Over/Under 2.5 goals bet. Follow our A-League tips for corners, goal scorers, card bets and more.

Finals Series & Grand Final tips

Unlike European football, the A-League features an end of season play-off. The Finals Series playoffs winner is the season champion, while the winner of the league is the premier. These knockout games add an extra level of excitement to the end of the season.

We’ll bring you a wide range of A-League tips for this exciting knockout series. We’ll also provide predictions for the AFL Grand Final match – traditionally held on the final Saturday in September, or the first Saturday in October.

History of the A-League

The A-League is a relatively new league format, having kicked off in 2004. Prior to that, Australia’s premier division was the National Soccer League (NSL). The NSL was established in 1977 as a response to the spike in the sport’s popularity following Australia’s first-ever appearance at the World Cup in 1974.

Back then, 14 teams took part. However, a lack of financial backing from funders and sponsors meant that the Australian teams couldn’t draw in talent like the established outfits in Europe. Many of the nation’s best players left Australian to pursue more glittering careers abroad.

In 2003, after years of next-to-no investment, the NSL was ditched in favour of a new, smaller competition. Eight teams from across Australia and New Zealand entered the newly formed A-League. Adelaide United were crowned inaugural winners in 2005 and since then the league has moved from strength to strength. Today, 11 teams contest for the title – and further entries are already confirmed for the coming seasons.
