Newcastle Jets odds: 71/50 (2.42) – 41.1%

Draw odds: 11/4 (3.75) – 22.0%

Wellington Phoenix odds: 17/10 (2.70) – 36.9%

The Jets’ odds are priced at 71.50 (2.42), which is enough to give them a 41.1% win probability ahead of the kick-off and make them a slight favorite to win. Despite being the expected winners according to the bookmakers, we don’t think Newcastle Jets will be the ones to get the three points. We have hopes that Wellington Phoenix’s tremendous run will continue, as the visitors also have a good win probability at 17/10 (2.70) – 36.9%.

Newcastle Jets vs Wellington Phoenix Lineups & Team News

Newcastle Jets

With barely 20 goals scored and 27 conceded, the Jets are orbiting the bottom of the table. If our Newcastle Jets vs Wellington Phoenix predictions succeed, we just might see Western United reach Newcastle Jets this week. Coach Stanton’s players will have to work extra hard to prove they are up to par with their visitors.

Predicted lineup – Scott (GK), Wilmering, Natta, Cancar, Ingham, Timmins, Taylor, Grozos, Buhagiar, Piscopo & Stamatelopoulos

Wellington Phoenix

Wellington Phoenix are at the top of the table so far. We favor them in our Newcastle Jets vs Wellington Phoenix prediction, as coach Talay’s players have lost only two games this season. It’s highly unlikely they’ll get beaten by this lackluster Newcastle Jets team. The only issue coach Talay has to deal with is Payne’s suspension as he saw the red in last week’s match versus Melbourne Victory.

Predicted lineup – Paulsen (GK), Surman, Wootton, Kelly-Heald, Pennington, Rufer, Old, Sutton, Barbarouses, Kraev & Ball

Player to Watch: Kosta Barbarouses

We expect to see Bulgarian player Bozhidar Kraev leading the attack for Wellington Phoenix just like he did in the match against Melbourne Victory. However, the player to watch in our Newcastle Jets vs Wellington Phoenix prediction is called Kosta Barbarouses, as he is a force to be reckoned with this season, despite playing in an unfamiliar position. Kosta Barbarouses is both the top goalscorer and key creator at his manager’s disposal. Kosta scored eight goals and supplied teammates with four assists this season.
