He is the older brother of fellow footballer Nenad Marinković.
Born in Knjaževac, Marinković made his first football steps in his hometown club Timočanin. He joined the youth system of Partizan in 2000, becoming a member of their promising generation, together with Borko Veselinović, Milan Smiljanić and Stefan Babović, that won numerous youth tournaments.
After already playing for Partizan's affiliated club Teleoptik, Marinković made his official debut for the Crno-beli in the second part of the 2003–04 season under manager Vladimir Vermezović. He signed his first professional contract for Partizan in June 2004, on a five-year deal. However, Marinković failed to make any appearances for the club in the first part of the 2004–05 season, before being loaned to Obilić. He subsequently returned to Partizan and got some playing time in the first part of the 2005–06 season, scoring four goals in seven competitive appearances. However, Marinković was eventually sent on loan to Voždovac in January 2006. He scored six goals in 13 league appearances for Voždovac, as they finished in third place. After returning to Partizan from a successful loan spell, Marinković became a regular member of the starting eleven, finishing the 2006–07 season as the team's top scorer with 14 goals in all competitions.
In the 2010 winter transfer window, Marinković moved to Israel and signed with Maccabi Petah Tikva. He spent the following four years in the country, also playing for Hapoel Acre and Hapoel Haifa. During that period, Marinković made a total of 99 league appearances and scored 20 goals for these three clubs combined.
On 20 January 2014, Marinković signed with Perth Glory until the end of the 2014–15 season. He scored his first goal for the club on 30 March 2014, equalizing the score in an eventual 2–1 win over Newcastle Jets. On 14 May 2017, Marinković was released by The Glory.
Marinković was capped for his country at all youth levels from under-17 to under-21. He represented Serbia and Montenegro at the 2005 UEFA Under-19 Championship, as the team reached the semi-finals of the tournament. Marinković appeared in all four of Serbia and Montenegro's games and scored two goals in the process.
