NBL Round 11 Preview & Betting Tips

December 28th 2018, 12:13pm, By: admin

We hit on 4/6 of our best bets last weekend in Round 10 of the 2018-19 NBL season. It was good to bounce back after a rare losing round in Week 9 and move further into the green for the season. We now shift our focus to the last weekend of NBL action for 2018 and provide our best bets for all games. Good luck to everyone following!

NBL Round 11 Betting Tips

Sydney Kings vs Brisbane Bullets (Saturday 2:50pm AEDT)

The weekend’s action kicks off in Sydney with the Kings hosting the Bullets on Saturday afternoon. This is the first of four meetings between these teams this season.

The Kings come in with some good form having gone 10-3 in their last 13 games. Interestingly, all three of their losses have come against Melbourne United. Despite losing to United in their second game of Round 10, the Kings are still on top of the standings with a 10-5 record on the season.

Meanwhile, the Bullets also come in with some good form having won four of their last five games. As it stands, they’re in fourth position with an 8-7 record.

We’re surprised to see the Kings not come into this one a lot shorter odds. They’re in red hot form against every team in the competition not named Melbourne United. We’re happy to take them at the line here.

 

Adelaide 36ers vs New Zealand Breakers (Sunday 2:50pm AEDT)

The lone game on Sunday sees the Adelaide 36ers host the New Zealand Breakers. This is the second of four meetings between these teams this season. The first was in Auckland where the Breakers ran out 114-94 winners.

The 36ers are playing their second game of the round, having already played Melbourne United on Wednesday. They secured a much needed win against the team that defeated them in the Grand Final series last season, which will give them a lot of confidence going forward. The 36ers have now won three on the spin and sit half a game outside the playoff picture at 8-8.

The Breakers come into this game with two consecutive wins under their belt, although they’ve come against the two worst teams in the league as it stands. They’re now at 6-8 for the season and will need a strong stretch of games to give themselves a chance of playing in the post-season.

Again, we’re surprised at the odds the bookies have dished up. The 36ers are by far the form team and will take a big homecourt advantage over the travelling Breakers here. Very happy to take them at a small line.

 

Illawarra Hawks vs Brisbane Bullets (Monday 5:20pm AEDT)

The first of two games on Monday sees the Illawarra Hawks host the Brisbane Bullets at 5:20pm (AEDT). This will be the third of a four game regular season series between these two teams. The series is currently tied at 1-1, with both teams defending home court comfortably.

The Hawks are set to enjoy a much easier draw in the next portion of their season and are coming off a win in their last outing against the Wildcats. That win keeps them firmly in the playoff race with a record of 7-9.

The Bullets will be playing their second game in three days here, after playing in Sydney on Friday night. It’s a very tough ask for a team that haven’t travelled well in recent years.

Expect the Hawks to come in and start favourites before tip-off here. I’m not sure why they aren’t already favourites, but two games on the road in three days is far too much to ask for the Bullets who aren’t anything special. Take the Hawks straight in our tip of the week.

 

Cairns Taipans vs Perth Wildcats (Monday 7:50pm AEDT)

The second game on Monday and the final game of Round 11 has the Cairns Taipans play hosts to the Perth Wildcats. Again, this will be the third of four meetings between these teams this season. The Wildcats lead the series 2-0 on the back of a 22-point home win and a five point road win against the Snakes.

The Taipans season just keeps getting worse as they find themselves on a 13-game losing streak. They just can’t close out games when they lead down the stretch, which means their season is pretty much done.

On the other hand, the Wildcats enjoy second spot on the ladder, although they’ve struggled in recent weeks having lost each of their last four games.

It’s just impossible to have any faith in the Taipans after 13 straight losses. They come up against opposition who’ve already beaten them twice this season and will be desperate to get back on the winners list. We have Bryce Cotton and the Wildcats winning this one comfortably.
