NBL Round 17 Predictions

Thursday 25/1/24

7:30pm S.E. Melbourne Phoenix vs Sydney Kings @ State Basketball Centre

The Phoenix are playing terrible basketball, hence the $3.14 odds to beat the Sydney Kings on Thursday.

Sydney hasn’t been playing overly well either, losing to Perth last week. However, the Kings have title aspirations and the Phoenix have fallen to last position on the NBL ladder.

The fall from grace continues, so take the Kings to cover the spread.

Betting tip: Sydney Kings –6.5 @ $1.96

Kings by 10

9:30pm Perth Wildcats vs Illawarra Hawks @ RAC Arena

We like what the Wildcats are doing as the playoffs approach, and we’re not surprised by the odds.

They are favourites to beat the Hawks, who have also been playing well, but beating Perth on the road is one of the hardest tasks in the NBL.

It’s another sizable line at –6.5, but we’re not jumping off the Wildcats’ back.

Betting tip: Perth Wildcats –6.5 @ $1.90

Wildcats by 8

Friday 19/1/24

5:30pm New Zealand Breakers vs Tasmania JackJumpers @ Eventfinda Stadium

The Breakers have the advantage of having played less games than the rest of the opposition.

For a chance to make the playoffs, they need to score wins over teams like the JackJumpers, who have had the advantage over the Breakers this season.

However, we believe in the Breakers, who are paying $1.71 to win with home court.

Betting tip: New Zealand Breakers @ $1.71

Breakers by 5

7:30pm Brisbane Bullets vs Melbourne United @ Nissan Arena

The Bullets have climbed their way to fourth on the NBL ladder, which didn’t look likely a couple of weeks ago.

They face a tough test against United, who have been the best team in the competition. However, they are due a loss.

There is value with the Bullets at home, who are paying a healthy $3.28 to pull off the upset.

Betting tip: Brisbane Bullets @ $3.28

Bullets by 3

Saturday 27/1/24

5:30pm Adelaide 36ers vs Cairns Taipans @ Adelaide Entertainment Centre

The 36ers and Taipans aren’t impressing many punters, but one team must win on Saturday.

There has been more betting support for the 36ers, who have the benefit of home court. That could be enough to see them win.

It’s not our most confident bet of the week but include Adelaide in selections.

Betting tip: Adelaide 36ers @ $1.67

36ers by 4

8:00pm S.E. Melbourne Phoenix vs Perth Wildcats @ State Basketball Centre

This should be an easy win for the Wildcats, who face the struggling Phoenix on Saturday.

Playing on the road isn’t easy, but the Phoenix have been rolling over with not much resistance over the last few weeks.

We expect bookmakers to have Perth at short odds.

Betting tip: Perth Wildcats

Wildcats by 9

Sunday 28/1/24

2:00pm Illawarra Hawks vs New Zealand Breakers @ WIN Entertainment Centre

We expect a close game between the improving Hawks and Breakers, who are battling for playoff spots.

The Hawks have been one of the best bets over the last few weeks, but given their strong roster, which is now back to full strength, the Breakers are the team to beat.

Punters could get value odds for the visitors.

Betting tip: New Zealand Breakers

Breakers by 3

4:00pm Sydney Kings vs Melbourne United @ Qudos Bank Arena

It’s a battle of the NBL heavyweights as the Kings and United do battle on Sunday afternoon.

Melbourne has been playing better basketball than Sydney, and although we picked against it earlier in the week against Brisbane, United could win.

The Kings are the more desperate team, but they’re not playing nearly as well as United.

Betting tip: Melbourne United

United by 5
