The A-League match between Adelaide United and Newcastle Jets features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Friday March 5.
Bet Of The Day March 5 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
Adelaide United target their third straight win in the A-League on Friday night when they host the Newcastle Jets and I can’t believe they are the underdogs with the bookies.
After an inconsistent start to the season, Adelaide have found their groove over the last fortnight, posting two consecutive victories over the league leaders Central Coast and top four side Western Sydney Wanderers.
Tomi Juric is back in top form and he will be relishing the chance to fire in some more goals in front of the Reds faithful on Friday night.
Adelaide have a great recent record against Newcastle, going unbeaten in seven of the last eight games between the teams.
Meanwhile, the Jets saw their five-game unbeaten streak come to an end with a lacklustre 2-0 defeat at home to bottom-placed Wellington last weekend.
Newcastle are really struggling up front and have scored the least amount of goals of anyone in the A-League this season, despite playing more games than the majority of sides.
The Jets have only scored one goal in their last three games and I can’t see things getting any better for them against an in-form Adelaide side at Coopers.
- Adelaide are unbeaten vs Newcastle in seven of their last eight games
- Adelaide have scored three goals in their last two victories
- Newcastle have scored just one goal in their last three games
- Adelaide are five spots ahead of Newcastle on the table despite playing one less game
