Western Sydney Wanderers vs Newcastle Jets
Date: Saturday, 15 February 2020
Kick-Off at 08:30 UK
Venue: Bankwest Stadium, Sydney
Newcastle Jets are having the worst start to A-League campaign in the last five years. Despite the 3-2 victory against Central Coast Mariners in the last appearance, this squad is still last placed with only 13 points from 16 games.
They are also having the worst goal difference of -17, which is not encouraging going into this week’s clash against Western Sydney Wanderers.
Team from Bankwest is also far away from a dream start, being 8th with 17 points. There are plenty of improvements needed on both sides to join the playoffs race this year.
Western Sydney Wanderers vs Newcastle Jets: Head-to-head
- Shockingly, Newcastle Jets have won five out of the last six head to head matches against WSW.

- Seven out of the last nine meetings have ended either with BTTS or Over 2.5 FT.
- WSW won eight and lost nine matches against Newcastle Jets.
Western Sydney Wanderers vs Newcastle Jets: Prediction
We were slightly surprised with 2.20 odds on home win considering the current state of Newcastle Jets. Western Sydney Wanderers have won more points away than at this stadium, so that is probably the reason why the rate is so high.
Their latest form is very inconsistent, including three consecutive losses to Brisbane Roar, Wellington Phoenix and Perth Glory. Two games they have won were against Adelaide United and Central Coast Mariners, both on the road.
Is it time for visitors to finally wake up and tie two wins in a row? We believe so. Backing Newcastle Jets to win this match is going to be the primary selection, but we are not recommending high stake for this one. Over 2.5 FT at 1.57 however seems like a massive banker.
