Wellington Phoenix v Newcastle Jets - Saturday 06:35, BT Sport 1
Wellington were thumped 6-1 by Melbourne Victory last time out meaning they’re still searching for their first point of the season, though they’ve at least managed their first goal. The Jets suffered their first defeat of the campaign as they were beaten 2-0 by early leaders Sydney.
Wellington lost just three of their first nine home games last term, but they’ve now lost their last six at the Wellington Regional Stadium, trailing at the break in five of these defeats and scoring just twice. What’s more, they lost at home to both the woeful Jets and Mariners sides last term, but did manage to score in both those defeats.
The Jets came from behind to pick up a point at the Wanderers in their only away game so far, but they managed to win at the Mariners twice and also Wellington last term and so they look a massive price at 3.6 to win, given they’ve looked a much better side so far this season. Since they’ve managed just one clean sheet in their last 11 on the road, we’re backing the Jets to Win and Both Teams to Score at 6.0.£10 Free Credit and a £500 Deposit Bonus
