The A-League match between Melbourne City and Newcastle Jets features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Thursday June 10.
Bet Of The Day June 10 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
We’ve landed our last three #BOTDs and we are confident we can make it four when Melbourne City and Newcastle Jets clash in the A-League tonight.
Normally first coming up against last would be a foregone conclusion, but this isn’t any ordinary meeting.
Firstly, this game was originally scheduled for a couple of weeks ago but got postponed due to the pandemic.
As a result, City have seen their home game moved to Sydney and behind closed doors.
More importantly, City have already wrapped up the minor premiership and could easily rest a bunch of players ahead of the upcoming finals series.
City have also lost star striker Jamie Maclaren to Socceroos duty. Maclaren has been responsible for nearly half of City’s goals this season.
Additionally, the Jets have absolutely everything to play for in what will be their final match of the season and the last game for coach Craig Deans.
Newcastle have endured a tough season, but they’ve improved over the last month or so, going unbeaten in three of their last five matches.
The Jets managed a draw with in-form Sydney FC and Perth Glory and defeated finals-bound Central Coast 2-0 in Gosford over the last few weeks.
A win or draw for the Jets would see them rise above Melbourne Victory on the ladder and avoid the wooden spoon.
It’s also worth noting City wouldn’t mind seeing their cross-town rivals picking up the spoon!
We like the double chance market for Newcastle to win or draw at $2.10 with bet365 here – the Jets have been looking good over the last few weeks and can take advantage of a City side that have nothing to play for on Thursday night.
- Jets have won two of the last three meetings between the teams
- Jets are unbeaten in three of their last five matches
- City have already won the minor premiership and are in the finals – they have nothing to play for in this clash
- City have lost their best player in Jamie Maclaren to international duty
