NBL Round 14 Betting Tips

NBL Round 14 Betting Tips

Sydney Kings vs Cairns Taipans

Saturday 8pm AEST, Qudos Bank Arena

Sydney Kings come into this off a remarkable win against the Phoenix last time out, winning by seven points despite being without Jarrell Martin and DJ Vasiljevic and with Casper Ware being held to just two points. It was an important win for the Kings who remain in the hunt for a playoff berth.

Cairns Taipans have been by far the most disappointing team this season and look destined to finish on the bottom of the ladder. They did manage to win their most recent game against the 36ers, but that’s simply a consolation win at this point in their now 6-17 season.

The undermanned Kings will start this game as favourites, simply due to how poor the Taipans are and have been this season. You can expect a big bounce back performance from Casper Ware after his mare against the Phoenix, which will help his team win and cover the spread in the process.

Melbourne United vs Illawarra Hawks

Sunday 3pm AEST, John Cain Arena

Melbourne United are absolutely rolling at the moment and find themselves on another big seven-game winning streak. They lost their way a little bit during the middle of the season due to injuries and lack of form, but now look to be peaking at the right time with the playoffs looming.

Illawarra Hawks have been an intriguing team to follow this season as you never quite know what you’re going to get, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. They were no match for the Wildcats on the road on Friday and have now lost four of their past six games, which isn’t the form you want to be in when there’s a playoff spot up for grabs.

This probably won’t be the highest scoring game of the round but it will be a battle of two of the better defences in the league. The Hawks will certainly give their all and put up a decent fight, but it’s impossible to go past United on current form, particularly with home court advantage on their side. We love them to cover the spread here.

Perth Wildcats vs New Zealand Breakers

Sunday 5pm AEST, RAC Arena

Perth Wildcats were far too good for the Hawks on Friday night, bouncing back beautifully from a couple of iffy performances against both the Breakers and the 36ers. As a result, the defending champs regained top spot on the ladder with six more games to play in the regular season.

New Zealand Breakers have never been able to find their rhythm this season and will likely finish in the bottom two. The Webster bros have tried their best to keep their season alive, but perhaps sometimes force the issue a little too much. They’ve won 6/20 games and were always going to find it difficult away from home all season.

The Breakers put up a fantastic fight when these teams met a couple of days ago, but we expect it to be a different story this time around at the rowdy RAC Arena in Perth. The defending champs are eyeing off the minor premiership and should have too much firepower for one of the worst teams in the competition.
