It was a funny little joke a month ago but as it so happens, the Jets are in the finals mix thanks to a five game unbeaten run.
They still need to close a four point gap on Melbourne City but playing the Mariners this weekend is about as close to a guaranteed three points you can get.
The Jets have won the last five F3 derbies and the Mariners are reeling from an embarrassment last weekend.
An 8-2 loss saw Mike Mulvey sacked and former Matildas coach Alen Stajic brought in as caretaker.
Newcastle’s last three wins have all been by two or more goals and with the mismatch in confidence between these sides that run should be extended here.
Tip: Newcastle Jets at $1.33
