NBL Round 10 Betting Tips

Perth Wildcats vs Cairns Taipans

Friday 9:30pm AEDT, RAC Arena

Perth Wildcats won some more silverware by taking out the inaugural NBL Cup. They finished off the mini tournament in style by overcoming a 20-point deficit against the Sixers to win by double-digits. The Wildcats are now 9-4 on the season and have moved into second spot on the ladder.

Cairns Taipans can’t buy a win at the moment and have now lost three straight games, all by 10 points or less. It’s just been a disastrous season for the Snakes thus far after making such huge strides last campaign. They’re glued to the bottom of the ladder with just three wins to their name from 16 games.

The Wildcats are by far the better team in this matchup, but the line has been set correctly in our opinion. Instead, we’ll be playing the ‘unders’ for total points, which looks a touch too high. There were just 158 points scored when these teams met a couple of weeks ago and with neither team scoring 100+ in their last six games now, we’re expecting another low-scoring affair.

SE Melbourne Phoenix vs Adelaide 36ers

Saturday 5:30pm AEDT, John Cain Arena

SE Melbourne Phoenix have found some great form over the past couple of weeks with three straight wins, but that all might come to an end with their best player, Mitch Creek, out indefinitely. It’s a real shame for the Phoenix who currently sit fourth in the standings.

Adelaide 36ers put in a fantastic first half performance against the defending champion Perth Wildcats in their most recent outing; however, they managed just 28 points in the entire second half to taste defeat for the fifth time in their past six games. On a positive note, Brandon Paul made his debut for the Sixers and looked right at home with 25 points on 6/10 shooting from deep.

These teams have already played each other three times this season, which means this will be their fourth and final meeting for the regular season. The 36ers lead the series 2-1 and we expect them to make it 3-1 with another win against the creek-less Phoenix on Saturday night. Getting better than $2 for this bolstered Sixers side to win this clash is overs all day long.

Melbourne United vs Illawarra Hawks

Sunday 3pm AEDT, John Cain Arena

Melbourne United have hit a rough patch after such a fantastic start in which they won 10 of their first 11 games. Despite playing at home for the past couple of weeks, United come into Round 10 having lost three games on the spin, with their most recent defeat being the worst of them as they managed just 69 points against the Hawks.

Illawarra Hawks finished off the NBL Cup in style with two very impressive wins on the spin against two quality teams in United and the Kings. Most impressively was their defence in both outings, keeping their opponents to 69 points on each occasion. Now at 9-6 on the season, the Hawks are back in the top four and just one win behind top spot.

Injuries continue to plague United and it’s really costing them on the offensive end at the moment. They’ve scored less than 90 points a regulation in their past seven games and found it extremely tough to break this elite Hawks defence down last start. All things considered, we’re happy to be with the Hawks at even money to go back-to-back against United.
