England lead the series 2-0 after wins at Trent Bridge and Lord's and require only a draw in Manchester to ensure they retain the urn.
Caddick, 10th on the list of English Test wicket takers with 234, thinks England's bowling attack - led by James Anderson on his home ground - will prove too strong once again.
"Jimmy is a superb athlete and knows his game," Caddick told Sky Sports News.
"He's at the top of his game and the others are feeding off that. That's what you need, a spearhead - he's done that for the last couple of years - and you've got some good-quality seamers backing him up.
"You've got a very good bowling attack against a very weak Aussie batting line-up. All told, England should come out on top every time."
Caddick is expecting a dry surface at Old Trafford, which has the reputation for offering more pace and bounce than the other Test grounds in England.
He said: "We're playing against an Australia side that doesn't have much of a spin attack, so you have to produce wickets for your team.
"That's what England have done. They've produced dry wickets and Swann comes into it. Jimmy and Bresnan are both very good reverse swing bowlers."
