Quick links

A-League prediction - Who will win between Newcastle Jets and Brisbane Roar on 12th January?

Only the most speculative of punters would be siding on Brisbane to bring home the bacon in this game, 17 points and the length of the A League Ladder separate the two sides. Jets got back to winning way in Round 15 after a defeat to Melbourne Victory and a draw with Sydney which they so very nearly won. Merrick has set up a really strong squad that have come through injuries and suspensions galore still shining and it is hard to fathom how Brisbane can get anything from the game

The fall from Grace for Roar has been spectacular, a really poor start to the season, a little ray of light at around Round 9/10 and then back to being battered week in week out. Brisbane might fear for the wooden spoon, with Wellington finally winning a game on Wednesday night. Four of Brisbane's last 5 games have come at home, they have lost all four and conceded at least twice each tie, they won the only away game in that run at Adelaide

Newcastle are available at a really good price for my money and home win is the simple choice

Goals Betting

Blah Blah, Newcastle scored in every game, 13/15 have gone over 2.50, this will be no exception and we can take 1.62 if we want it. Well, we do, Brisbane have won their last two away games, and look bang on to contribute, Newcastle could land the bet for us on their own. It is worth $1.62 

Goalscorer Betting

Andrew Nabbout has landed for me a couple of times now this season at good odds, and thus he has shortened up somewhat to $4.50 to score first. This week I might have a little punt on Jason Hoffman who has a couple this season already and can be bought at $13.00
