A-League prediction - Who will win between Melbourne City and Newcastle Jets on 25th January

3rd You would have to have thought Melbourne City would be in a strong position to gain three points in this fixture even before the results of last week, but with City's 5-0 drubbing of Adelaide following Newcastle Jets being stunned by Wellington Phoenix, we have to think City have a great opportunity of getting to within a point of Newcastle Jets who will remain in second spot in A-League regardless of the result

Melbourne City are running up a head of steam now, unbeaten in 4 games, [W3 D1], although the 5 against Adelaide was a slightly flattering result given three of the goals came in the final minutes, but still, they were convincing winners at 2-0 and have every chance of extending the unbeaten run to 5 games now

Newcastle Jets will have been shocked to the core at losing to the A-League's bottom side last week despite scoring twice. There seemed to be no fluke about it either as the Jets had to come back from 0-2 and 1-3 to record the 2-3 scoreline. Jets may still be licking their wounds this week and City will have the salt ready to rub in

Goals Betting

City We have the second highest scorers in A-League involved in the match, and on 26, equal 4th best in Melbourne City. By the same token, if we forget Sydney for a moment, we also have the best 2 defences in the league too, so whilst they may both be adept at hitting the back of the net, they are both very capable of preventing a chance. [Although we've already discussed Jets frailties last weekend]

Rather than $1.66 for Both teams to score I would prefer to back Over 2.50 goals at $1.80, it looks far better value


Goalscorer Betting

Ross McCormack is just $4.00 to score first but it looks like a game where you could take your pick. Budzinski, scored 2 and first for Melbourne Last week and is more thandouble the price at $9.00 so certainly should be considered

A League Live Stream

Illegal live streams are not the most reliable and we recommend this A league Live Stream information as a reliable alternative. Being able to watch the game live and watch your bets as they happen is exciting, but bear in mind all streams are slightly behind the real-time action, so if using for in-play betting, then please approach with caution.
