Newcastle and Adelaide have played out two tight clashes this season and there’s no reason to think this one should be any different.
There was a 1-1 draw in Round 2 followed by a 2-1 Adelaide win in Round 10 and the market suggests this one could be a pretty tight game.
Newcastle looks like it might have rediscovered its scoring touch with nine goals in the last three games, which is over a third of what they have tallied lately.
Adelaide have been quite vulnerable as of late, keeping just one clean sheet in its last seven games and giving up three goals to Brisbane and Western Sydney as well.
When it comes to form, the Jets are looking like the stronger side and are worth a play as a home underdog.
