NBL Round 18 Predictions

Thursday 1/2/24

7:30pm Cairns Taipans vs Tasmania JackJumpers @ Cairns Convention Centre

The Taipans are trying to cling to their playoff hopes, and a win over the JackJumpers would take them a long way.

They face Tasmania, which is sitting in third place after posting 12 wins and 12 losses from 24 games. It’s a solid record, and it’s the $1.55 favourites to win.

Beating Cairns at home isn’t easy, but the JackJumpers are the better team, so we’re happy to back them at the short odds.

Betting tip: Tasmania JackJumpers @ $1.55

Friday 2/2/24

7:30pm Adelaide 36ers vs Sydney Kings @ Adelaide Entertainment Centre

Sydney hasn’t been playing its best basketball lately, which is why the sportsbook has it at $1.72 to beat Adelaide.

The 36ers sit in second-to-last position on the NBL ladder, but they have been playing better over the last few weeks.

This game is all about attitude, and with their backs against the wall, we think the Kings prevail in a tight contest on Friday night.

Betting tip: Sydney Kings @ $1.72

Saturday 3/2/24

5:30pm Illawarra Hawks vs Brisbane Bullets @ WIN Entertainment Centre

The Hawks shocked the Breakers last week when coming back from a 12-point deficit to keep their playoff hopes alive.

It was a classy win for the resurgent team, who looked terrible for large parts of the season. However, they are now $1.51 favourites to beat the Bullets.

That’s a short price against a team sitting above the Hawks on the ladder. However, we’re taking the Hawks to win and cover the spread.

Betting tip: Illawarra Hawks –3.5 @ $1.90

8:00pm Melbourne United vs S.E. Melbourne Phoenix @ John Cain Arena

United are about as short as it gets at $1.10, and the Phoenix are playing terrible basketball.

It should be a one-sided affair, which is unusual for the Melbourne rivalry, but the Phoenix aren’t showing much respite.

Bookmakers have the line at 13.5, which is fair considering their respective form. We’re happy to back United, who have more to play for.

Betting tip: Melbourne United –13.5 @ $1.90

Sunday 4/2/24

2:00pm Tasmania JackJumpers vs Adelaide 36ers @ MyState Bank Arena

Odds aren’t out for this game, but we expect a close betting market, which is likely to slightly favour the JackJumpers.

They have been excellent at home this year, and it could be a tricky week for the 36ers, who also face the Sydney Kings.

We’re happy to include the home side in our Round 18 selections.

Betting tip: Tasmania JackJumpers

4:00pm Perth Wildcats vs New Zealand Breakers @ RAC Arena

The Wildcats and Breakers play their first and only game of the round, and there are big implications.

The Breakers fell out of a playoff position last week, so they’re desperate to make a charge for the playoffs.

Perth sits in second position and they’re the $1.46 favourites. However, the $2.74 for the Breakers is too good to pass up.

They are the more desperate team, so take the generous odds.

Betting tip: New Zealand Breakers @ $2.74
