Defending A-League champions Melbourne Victory dominate betting for their season opener against Melbourne City.
Victory is the $2.30 favourites ahead of City ($2.88) and holds five-times more money than Saturday’s cross-town rivals.
The Melbourne Derby is always a hard fought match with pride on the line.
The bulk of money is for Victory, but City has strengthened in the off-season, so it will be a close encounter.
New Victory signing Keisuke Honda (pictured) is $8.00 to score the first goal.
Former Japan midfielder Keisuke Honda is itching to kick off his Australian adventure with Melbourne Victory on Saturday after a long wait through the A-League’s “weird” and “unique” pre-season. https://t.co/d3BcdsCOuL
