NBL Round 20 Predictions

Friday 16/2/24

5:30pm New Zealand Breakers vs Brisbane Bullets @ Spark Arena

If the Breakers win, they’re in the playoffs. It’s that simple, as they welcome the Brisbane Bullets into town.

The Bullets could potentially miss the playoffs if the Breakers and Kings win, so it’s an important game for them as well.

However, given the home crowd and potentially Tom Abercrombie’s last game, the Breakers should get up for this contest.

Betting tip: New Zealand Breakers –5.5 @ $1.96

Breakers by 7

7:30pm Cairns Taipans vs Melbourne United @ Cairns Convention Centre

United has secured the top spot in the playoffs, so they don’t need to play their full-strength team.

That means the Cairns Taipans could pull off a home upset at $3.08, which is a value price for the home side.

They can close the gap on the playoff teams with a win, but they’re unlikely to have a chance of making the playoffs. However, pride is on the line, and that’s big for the Taipans.

Betting tip: Cairns Taipans @ $3.08

Saturday 17/2/24

5:30pm S.E. Melbourne Phoenix vs Sydney Kings @ John Cain Arena

The playoffs could be out of reach for the Kings, depending on results earlier in the week.

However, regardless of the situation, they should be far too good for the struggling South East Melbourne Phoenix, who are at the bottom of the ladder.

It has been a dreadful year for the Phoenix, especially after starting well. Sydney should capitalise and score a comfortable win.

Betting tip: Sydney Kings –8.5 @ $1.90

Kings by 12

8:00pm Tasmania JackJumpers vs Perth Wildcats @ MyState Bank Arena

The Perth Wildcats lost on Thursday to the Illawarra Hawks and picked up a couple of worrying injuries.

The injury to Bryce Cotton isn’t serious, but we think they will rest him on Saturday because they can’t finish better than second anyway.

Tasmania is a tough team to beat at home, and we’re not surprised by the –5.5 line, which is accurate.

Betting tip: Tasmania JackJumpers –5.5 @ $1.90

JackJumpers by 8

Sunday 18/2/24

2:00pm Melbourne United vs Illawarra Hawks @ John Cain Arena

The Hawks have done brilliantly to pull themselves off the bottom of the ladder and into a playoff position.

It has been a massive turnaround, and that’s thanks to the coaching change, which had a big impact.

Beating United in Melboure isn’t easy, but United doesn’t need to win this game, so there could be value with the visitors.

Betting tip: Illawarra Hawks

Hawks by 4

4:00pm Adelaide 36ers vs New Zealand Breakers @ Adelaide Entertainment Centre

Adelaide is out of contention, so we’re picking the Breakers to pick up the win in the final regular season game.

It has been a mixed season for the Breakers, who have coped with injuries, but the talent is still there. We’re happy to back them in this situation, against an Adelaide team that hasn’t offered much respite.

Betting tip: New Zealand Breakers

Breakers by 7
