A-League Tips and Previews, Tuesday 1 Feb

McDonald Jones Stadium opens up its doors for a big clash between Newcastle Jets and Brisbane on Thursday night. 

The Jets are somewhat languishing at the bottom of the A-League table, but do still have at least two to three games in hand on most teams after a 2-1 loss to Adelaide on Sunday. 

Newcastle could very well well have leapt out of last place had it not conceded two late goals against the Reds after a go-ahead 57th minute strike from Beka Mikeltadze. 

Brisbane, meanwhile, went gung-ho to inflict further misery upon Western Sydney with a 3-0 win in at Moreton Daily Stadium last Saturday. 

A Nikola Mileusnic brace helped the Roar take home all three points as they look to make a mid-season charge towards the top six. 

From a head to head perspective, this is the first time the teams met each other this season and there does not seem to be too much value in that market. 

Where the value lies is in the total goals scored. 

The Jets have shown a good level of ability in the front half, but it is defensively where they have looked shaky. 

Coming up against a Brisbane team that is in rare goal-scoring form could set this up for a high-scoring end-to-end fixture. 

Prediction: Newcastle 2 Brisbane Roar 2

Suggested bets:
Total goals scored over 2.5 at $1.77
