Victory have opened $2.62 with sportsbet.com.au and the online bookmaker has posted Adelaide as $2.50 favourites.

In the season opener on October 8, Western Sydney Wanderers are $2.40 favourite to beat Brisbane Roar ($2.75).

Home track specialists Wellington Phoenix are the shortest priced team, in head-to-head betting for round one. The Phoenix is $1.73 to see off wooden-spooners, Newcastle Jets ($4.50).

Victory is $3.75 to win back-to-back championships ahead of beaten grand finalists Sydney FC ($4.50).

“Melbourne Victory face a hard battle against fierce rivals Adelaide in their opener. Victory could only share the points with United, at Adelaide Oval last season, playing out two draws. So it’s going to be a very tough away match for the defending champions,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
