NBL Round 6 Betting Tips
Brisbane Bullets vs New Zealand Breakers
Sunday 3pm AEDT, Nissan Arena
The Bullets have played a league low four matches in NBL22 to date and enter Round 6 with a 2-2 record. They’ve had a tough schedule to open the season with a couple of games on the road against the Wildcats before most recently hosting the red-hot Hawks in Brisbane, which came all the way back in Round 3. On Sunday It’ll have been exactly three weeks since the Bullets last played which could be seen as a big negative, but it might also be a blessing in disguise considering superstar Nathan Sobey was under a bit of an injury cloud.
The Breakers entered the season full of optimism after making a couple of seemingly astute moves in the off-season, but a 0-6 start has well and truly silenced the believers and put a lot of heat on their players and coaching staff. Admittedly, they’ve had it tougher than any other team when you consider all six of their games have been on the road; however, they’ve lost five of those six games by 7+ points, which shows they’ve been well off the boil for the most part.
It’s impossible to be keen on the Breakers in any capacity at the moment on the back of what we’ve seen from them through their first half a dozen games. On the other hand, the Bullets have really impressed and have already recorded two wins against very strong teams. Taking into consideration their vastly superior form coupled with having home court advantage, we’re inclined to take the Bullets to cover the spread here in a relatively low bet game.
Brisbane Bullets -6.5
