Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets Predictions & Betting Suggestions

If you enjoy these Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets predictions, make sure to give our remaining A-League predictions a quick read this week. Our football experts won’t disappoint you!

Melbourne City/Melbourne city

Enough is enough! It’s time for Melbourne City to get back to their usual style. Hearts wasted too many good opportunities this season and if they don’t brush the rustiness aside sooner rather than later, then the trophy might just go to Adelaide Untied or Central Coast Mariners.

Luckily, Newcastle Jets are an acceptable opponent for Melbourne City. The last 10 games between the two sides ended with six victories for Melbourne City and four for Newcastle Jets.

The Jets’ recent performances have been raising questions and the team does not look up to par with Rado Vidosic’s boys.

Over 3.5 Goals

Our key Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets prediction is in favor of a glamorous event at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium on Sunday. Four of the last 10 showdowns between the two sides ended with over 3.5 goals and it may seem as if our tip is a gamble to some degree.

However, the most common outcome in this rivalry is the 2-1 win – only barely away from the over 3.5 goal mark. With that being said, we also have to back up our prediction by saying that Hearths have the best attacking record in the league this year. With 47 goals in 20 A-League matches, Hearts’ strike force is second to none.

Melbourne City odds: 21/50 (1.42) – 69.0%

Draw odds: 41/10 (5.10) – 18.0%

Newcastle Jets odds: 29/5 (6.80) – 13.0%

More or less, the remaining A-League clashes were close when it comes to odds. Not this one. Melbourne City’s odds at 21/50 (1.42) make them a massive favorite for the three points with a 69.0% win probability while the Jets’ odds at 29/5 (6.80) mean there’s a measly 13.0% win probability for the visitors. Hearts to win is our key Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets prediction and as you can see, it’s backed up by Ladbrokes’ odds.

Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets Lineups & Team News

Melbourne City

We know one thing, Rado Vidosic is furious with his boys. They were at the top leading by 15 points at one point of the season. Well, they are still there but the gap is at four points as Adelaide United’s tremendous run put a dent in Hearts’ title ambitions. Even Melbourne City’s last game was a bit of a letdown as Rado Vidosic’s side barely got away with a 1-1 tie versus Macarthur.

Predicted lineup – Glover (GK), Bos, Good, Reis, Talbot, O’Neill, Jamieson, Nabbout, Berisha, Tilio & Maclaren

Newcastle Jets

The 2-2 tie against Perth Glory before the international break couldn’t have been more spot-on. Sure, Newcastle Jets had a slight advantage when it came to possession but overall, the two teams had the same number of shots and almost the same number of corners. Coach Arthur Papas’ boys will have to work hard if they want to prove our Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets predictions wrong.

Predicted lineup – Weier (GK), Aquilina, Jenkinson, Jurman, Hoffman, Buhagiar, O’Neill, Thurgate, Saito, Grozos & Mikeltadze

Player to Watch: Jamie Maclaren

There’s no real method to stop a juggernaut like Maclaren when he’s at his best. And “at best” is an understatement for him these days. With 18 goals since A-League’s 2022/23 kick-off, Jamie has been crushing it for Hearts. We believe our key Melbourne City vs Newcastle Jets betting tips are safe in his capable hands and he should have no issues sliding the ball past the Jets’ goalkeeper on Sunday.
