For bettors around the globe, the options are becoming fewer and much farther between games.

Early Monday morning, or late Sunday night, depending on where you are in the USA (or Europe), Newcastle Jets will host Melbourne City in the Australian A-League, and it will be the last football match to bet until Friday. Things may change in the next few days, as has happened with COVID-19, but for tonight, we can enjoy another contest.

In the games between these two sides since the beginning of 2019, Melbourne City has won all four by a combined score of 11-2. Three of the games have been over 2.5 goals, with two over 3 goals. Eight of 10 between the two have been over 2.5 goals (-182), with Newcastle going 13 games without a clean sheet; there will be goals. Another interesting stat: City has won four of the last five first halves.

The last two road matches for Melbourne City have produced five and six goals, as the team tries to lock up second spot in the table.

Look for City to score some goals, and come away with another victory.
