NBL Round 18 of 20: Basketball Betting Tips & Match Preview

Brisbane Bullets vs Melbourne United Betting Tips

Match Info: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY, 1 ,QUEENSLAND STATE NETBALL CENTRE , 5:30PM

Brisbane Bullets’ turnaround in the ongoing NBL 2019-20 has been quite sensational. They have re-entered the top 4 on the back of 5 consecutive wins and are currently 4th in the standings with 13 wins and 11 losses. In their last game, they took down Adelaide 108:99 on the road and would be happy to be back at home to host Melbourne United for their next game.

5th placed Melbourne United has had the opposite fortune to Brisbane of late and suffered a steep decline. Before Round 18 began, they had lost three matches in a row. However, they picked themselves up from that fall and began the new round with a superb 77:67 win against Perth Wildcats at home. It will now be interesting to see how they fare against a confident Brisbane in their own backyard.

Brisbane and Melbourne have clashed twice in this season and both teams have secured a win each in those games. However, given the form Brisbane is in currently and the home-court advantage they will have in this game, they start as favorites for the contest. Melbourne United has been inconsistent of late and thus back Brisbane to win this match.

Perth Wildcats vs Sydney Kings Betting Tips

Match Info: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY, 1, RAC ARENA , 8PM

The top two teams of this NBA season will clash this Saturday when Perth Wildcats host Sydney Kings in what should be the most lip-smacking encounter of Round 18. The two top sides have faced-off on three occasions this season and Perth has won 2 of those encounters while Sydney has won one. Which way will the pendulum swing when the two giants clash again?

Perth has been in excellent form and before starting Round 18, they were coming off three victories in a row. Unfortunately, they suffered a 67:77 loss in their last game against Melbourne United on the road. It was a surprisingly poor performance from the Wildcats and they would have to shed it off soon to face the best team in the competition.

Sydney, too, is in excellent touch and is on a three-match winning spree. They are playing like the best side in the tournament and walloped Melbourne United 106:88 at home in their last game. Their confidence would be high and they would be looking to give Perth a good fight.

That being said, Perth has been brilliant at home against Sydney. The last time they hosted Sydney this season, in December 2019, they hammered them 96:77. In fact, Sydney last beat Perth in their own backyard in December 2018.

Thus, Perth Wildcats will have the edge in this game because of the home-court advantage. We should get a closely-fought contest but expect Perth to emerge victorious.
