New Zealand Breakers vs S.E. Melbourne Phoenix NBL Betting Tips
Match Info: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY, 14, Spark Arena, 5:30PM
The rise of New Zealand Breakers in this NBL season has been a fascinating story. They were languishing at the bottom of the table early on and currently they find themselves in the top 4. The Breakers have won 4 of their last 5 games and are sitting pretty at the 4th position. In their last game, they took down Brisbane Bullets 91:87 on the road. The breakers will now be hosting South East Melbourne who are really struggling.
South East Melbourne are on a horrible 6-match losing spree and have slid to the 8th position. They lost a close game Sydney in their last encounter by just 3 points at home which would have really deflated them.
New Zealand Breakers and South East Melbourne have met thrice this season and the Breakers have won two of those clashes. On current form and with the home advantage, back the Breakers to win this contest.
Sydney Kings vs Illawara Hawks NBL Betting Tips
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY, 14, QUDOS BANK ARENA, 8PM
This has the makings of a no-contest given the current form and standings of both the teams. Sydney Kings are the No.1 team of the season and have won 4 of their last 5 matches. They secured a close 3-point win against South East Melbourne in their last match and would be confident of taking down Illawarra Hawks when they host them next in Round 20.
The Hawks have been the worst-performing team of the season and have been stuck at the last place in the standings with just 5 wins along with 22 losses to their name. They are on an astonishing 9-match losing spree and simply can’t seem to get out of the rut.
While the Hawks have beaten Sydney once this season, they have lost twice and is almost certain to lose again when they face-off this time. Back Sydney to score an easy win.
Perth Wildcats vs Adelaide 36ers
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY, 15, RAC ARENA, 8PM
While the gap between Perth Wildcats and Adelaide 36ers is huge at this point, it is surprising to note that of the three times these two teams have clashed this season, Adelaide has won 2 games while Perth has only won one.
That being said, Perth is currently sitting pretty at the 2nd position and has won 4 of their last 5 matches. They took down Brisbane Bullets 85:72 at home in their last match. Adelaide, meanwhile, have slipped to the 7th position. They have lost 4 of their last 5 games and are struggling for form. They were beaten 80:99 at home by Cairns in their last match.
Having the home advantage in this game will only make Perth stronger. Expect Perth Wildcats to clinch the game with ease.
