NBL Round 7 Preview & Betting Tips

November 20th 2018, 5:05pm, By: admin

Our terrific NBL season continued in Round 6 with four of our five tips getting up. We look to have carried on from a stellar 2017-18 season with another great year in 2018-19. We now shift our focus on to the weekend ahead as we provide previews and betting tips for each game in NBL Round 7.

NBL Round 7 Betting Tips

Brisbane Bullets vs Illawarra Hawks (Thursday 7:50pm AEDT)

The Bullets come into this one on the back of a disappointing loss on the road to United last Sunday afternoon. That made it three losses on the spin for Bullets, taking their season tally to 4-6 and placing them in sixth position on the ladder. Meanwhile, the Hawks lost their only game of round 6 as they got punished by the 36ers by 25 points. They’re now 3-6 on the season and in second last position on the ladder.

Although the Bullets find themselves on a three-game losing streak, they’ve come against the better teams in the league. They have a terrific chance to snap that streak on Thursday when they come against the Hawks, who 1-4 on the road this season. We’re happy to back the Bullets in at a small handicap.

New Zealand Breakers vs Perth Wildcats (Friday 5:20pm AEDT)

The Breakers enter this game after a really tough Round 6 where they lost by seven points at home against United before travelling to Sydney to lose by 13 points to the Kings. They’re now in fourth position with a 4-5 record. On the other hand, the Wildcats season just keeps getting better. They’ve won eight of nine games this year and a sitting pretty atop of the ladder.

Although the Wildcats come into this one as the clear form team, we’re expecting the Breakers to come out firing with extreme intensity at home. They’ve built their arena into a fortress over their tenure in the NBL and we expect them to prove hard to beat this weekend. We’re happy to have them at near even odds at home.

Adelaide 36ers vs Cairns Taipans (Friday 7:50pm AEDT)

Friday night’s fixture has the 36ers hosting the Taipans in Adelaide. The 36ers were able to get things going last weekend as they thumped the Hawks at home. They improved to 4-6 on the season and sit in fifth position on the ladder. Their opponents, the Taipans, are coming off yet another disappointing round of action. They led by as many as six in the final term against the Wildcats, but weren’t able to hold them off and eventually fell by five points. They’ve now lost seven on the spin and are well behind in last place with a 1-7 record.

The 36ers seem the far superior team in this one and when coupled with the home court advantage it’s hard to see any other result than a comfortable 36er win. We expect them to cover the line with a few points to spare.

Melbourne United vs Sydney Kings (Saturday 2:50pm AEDT)

The match of the round sees United host the Kings in Melbourne on Saturday afternoon. United had a successful Round 6, winning both of their games to take their record to 8-3, which has them in second spot on the ladder. Meanwhile, the Kings continued their hot form and moved in behind United in third place on the ladder with a 5-3 record.

These two sides played just a couple of rounds ago in Melbourne, with United taking care of business. Now with CG43 back in the line-up, United are even stronger and should be really tough to beat once again. We expect the Kings to make this one a contest, but eventually fall short by single figures.

Illawarra Hawks vs Adelaide 36ers (Sunday 2:50pm AEDT)

The Hawks and the 36ers will face off on Sunday in what will be both teams second game of the round. The Hawks will be a tad fresher with an extra day break and will be boosted by the support of their home fans. They’ve had a really tough draw to start the season, playing a lot of tough teams on the road, but will now find themselves with a favourable run over the next month.

The 36ers have a tough weekend of travel going from Adelaide to Wollongong and playing less than 48 hours apart. We believe the Hawks can take advantage of this and deliver a win at really nice odds.

Perth Wildcats vs New Zealand Breakers (Sunday 5:20pm AEDT)

The final game of the round sees the Wildcats host the Breakers on Sunday night in Perth. It will be the second time of the round that these two teams face off, which means it’s a bit harder to get a read on at this point in time. However, as it stands we have the Wildcats handicap looking like great value. They’ve been an absolute force to be reckoned with a home this season and will be hard to beat again on Sunday, no matter what transpires in the game prior.
