You know I really should listen to Fortuna, our Lady Luck of sports. Even though she warned me against betting on the Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory game I went against her advice and laid a bet. I thought that by covering my bets I thought for sure that would secure me a win. Reading that post will explain exactly how I placed my wagers on that game.
Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory 2-2
As it turns out the Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory match resulted in a 2-2 tie. What a pain in the ass because that turned what I thought was a winning bet into a losing bet.
One thing for sure though was it was one hell of an exciting game. As much as I wanted Adelaide United to win, right near the end there I was hoping someone would score a goal. Shit, I didn’t even care if it was Melbourne Victory that scored the goal. What’s that? I’m not being a loyal fan? Heck, before I used to bet on soccer games I never even used to watch them. It’s not like it’s the AFL and I was hoping the Crows would lose or anything. :tongue_out:
As you know whenever Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory Results it always results in an exciting game. This one was no different. As far as I’m concerned Adelaide was the better team. They controlled the game most of the time and really should have converted more but that wasn’t to be. I’m not sure of the exact number but I reckon Adelaide United had at least 16 corners. One would have thought they should have converted some of them into goals but that wasn’t to be.
My goal of the match goes to Pablo Sanchez. As you can see from the video below the gameplay resulted in Sanchez securing a perfectly executed header that resulted in a goal. Even though the video shows the goal and resulting aftermath that caused a lot of Adelaide supporters, my son being one of them, to be showered in a beer bath. Personally I thought it a waste of good beer but whatever turns you on, right? 😉
What the video doesn’t show is the gameplay after the ball was thrown in until Sergio Cirio was able to chip a cross to the back post where Sanchez literally soared above Victory centre back Matthieu Delpierre to nod home the equaliser from close range. Read a full run down from the A Leagues official website.
Did you watch the game on Foxtel or were you lucky enough to be physically there. Either way, what did you think of the latest Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory clash?
It’s time to work out whether or not I should be placing a bet this week. Naturally, the best way to do that is to ask Lady Luck. You can read all about how to utilise Lady Luck by reading this post.
Lady Luck pointed to Sportsbet and seeing as how I am a Sportsbet member I have her approval for placing a bet this week. The question now is where to place the bet.
I figured as how I’ve been pretty lucky with the soccer of late that I would place a wager on the Adelaide United vs Western Sydney Wanderers.
Once again, again because they’ve been lucky for me, I decided to use Bet365 to place my bet. Keeping with my responsible gambling rules I kept to the $10 betting limit.
Adelaide United vs Western Sydney Wanderers
At $1.75 Adelaide is the definite favourite and being a loyal South Aussie I decided to back them. As you can see from the image above I’ve decided to make things a little more interesting. Rather than placing the full $10 on the win I thought I’d split things up a little. So I placed $8 on a win. One dollar on a 2-0 win, which pays $8 and One dollar on 3-0 win which pays $13!
Soccer being what it is you can never, ever rely on the result going the way you would expect it to. A lot more so that any AFL match. Even though you would expect Adelaide to win it could just as easily be a draw. Heck, Western Sydney United could even do the unthinkable and win the darn thing.
No matter, one thing I do know is that placing that bet will make the Adelaide United vs Western Sydney Wanderers much more interesting. If I didn’t place a bet I wouldn’t have bothered to watch the match. Have to admit though, the more soccer games I watch the more I’m getting to like it.
Yep, Bet365 wins for me again! You may remember my last post, where I went against Lady Luck’s advice and placed a bet on the the Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory game last week? I was going to place a bet on Adelaide United to win but because Lady Luck told me not to place a bet and I really, really wanted to bet on that game I did the only thing I could do in that situation. I placed a $5 wager on Adelaide United to win and a $7 wager on Melbourne Victory to win. The only way I could lose was if it was a drawer. And we all know how easily that can happen when soccer is concerned.
As it turns out Melbourne Victory won which payed out $15.40! As my total stakes on the game was $12 I won a huge $3.40. :tongue_out: So, all in all another bet365 winning bet.
Yeah, I know it doesn’t sound like much but it’s still almost a 30% return. I’m not getting that sort of return at any of the banks. Too bad I can’t turn all my bets into a winning bet. But you know me, as much as I like winning I love the extra excitement I get from sport when I’ve placed a bet on a match, race or something.
Melbourne Victory vs Adelaide United Results
As it turns out Melbourne Victory beat Adelaide United 3-2. You can go to the A-League site to read the highlights of the match. Personally I found the game to be quite frustrating. Especially because we gave away two own goals. If it wasn’t for those goals Adelaide United actually would have won.
The highlight of the match for me was watching Kevin Muscat lose his cool, kicking the crap out of something that was within reach of his foot. :RLOL:
Overall I reckon that Adelaide United played better and they deserved to win. And they would have won too if they didn’t give away those two own goals. Oh well, shit happens.
