Central Coast Mariners vs Newcastle Jets Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Central Coast Mariners have had a good transfer market with the club bringing in experienced European names like Wout Brama and Tom Hiariej. On the other hand, there have not been many significant departures for manager Paul Okon to contend with. The club come on the back of a disappointing 2016-17 A-league campaign in which they finished eighth in the table. Newcastle Jets ended the 2016-17 campaign in a poor fashion and the very bottom of the table. Ernie Merrick leads the team after being appointed in May. Some of their top signings in the summer have been Ronald Vargas, Nikolai Topor-Stanley, and Dimitri Petratos. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

An incredible three out of the recent six matches between the two clubs have been a draws, but all those draws have been at Newcastle’s home. Central Coast Mariners were able to get a comfortable win in the recent home game against the Jets. I do not have great expectations of both teams coming into this game, as both suffered a first-round exit in the FFA Cup coming into this match. Even then, I would back a victory for the home team considering the poor finish to last season for Newcastle Jets.

Games between these two clubs in recent times have been a low scoring match with just one of the last six producing more than 2.5 goals. Even though Central Coast Mariners’ home matches against the Jets has tended to produce a decent return of goals, I would back this game to see under 2.5 goals.

Central Coast Mariners win – 6/4

Central Coast Mariners Preview

Central Coast Mariners failed to secure a play-off berth last season, and the club are looking to move past the bottom three places after three failed attempts. Central Coast Mariners last finished in the top five back in the 2013-14 season. Two 8th place finishes in the last three seasons have left the club with a real need to start the campaign in a positive way so as to aim for a play-off spot come the end of the campaign. After being able to keep most of the squad intact, the club will be hoping for a positive start to the 2017-18 campaign.

Central Coast Mariners Team News

Central Coast Mariners are able to benefit from a fully fit squad for this match.

Newcastle Jets Preview

The Jets have been going through a slide and the club has already gone through several coaches over the last four seasons. Merrick will be in charge of the team for the A-League 2017-18 campaign, and he knows that Newcastle Jets have been unable to finish above seven in the last seven campaigns. Newcastle Jets last finished in the top five back in the 2007-08 season. Last season, the team suffered immensely on all fronts after scoring just 28 goals and conceding 53. The team ended up losing all of the last six league matches, while the club’s last victory came back in January 2017.

Newcastle Jets are not suffering from injuries or suspensions coming into this game.
