NBL Round 5 Predictions

Thursday 26/10/23

5:30pm New Zealand Breakers vs Adelaide 36ers @ Spark Arena

The Breakers haven’t been able to play much basketball since the season started, but they are playing well enough.

We’re not surprised by the $1.28 available with bookmakers, especially because Adelaide aren’t playing well enough.

Punters should take the –7.5 available.

Betting tip: New Zealand Breakers –7.5 @ $1.90

Breakers by 10

7:30pm Illawarra Hawks vs Cairns Taipans @ WIN Entertainment Centre

There isn’t much between these teams in betting markets, but we see better value with the Taipans.

They have a better roster top to bottom, and Illawarra sits on the bottom of the table, so we can’t understand their $1.80 price.

Take Cairns at the value $2 price.

Betting tip: Cairns Taipans @ $2

Friday 27/10/23

7:30pm Tasmania JackJumpers vs Melbourne United @ MyState Bank Arena

There is never much between the JackJumpers and United, but we love betting on the JackJumpers at home.

They have proven tough to beat at MyState Bank Arena, and as good as United are, we’re taking the home side.

Bookmakers agree with Tasmania at $1.67.

Betting tip: Tasmania JackJumpers @ $1.67

9:30pm Perth Wildcats vs Brisbane Bullets @ RAC Arena

We’re not surprised by Perth opening as the short favourites to beat Brisbane on Friday night.

Perth is always tough to beat at home, and although the Wildcats haven’t been at their best, they should be too good.

Take the home side with point spread markets.

Betting tip: Perth Wildcats –5.5 @ $1.90

Wildcats by 7

Saturday 28/10/23

5:30pm S.E. Melbourne Phoenix vs New Zealand Breakers @ John Cain Arena

We expect a competitive game between the Phoenix and Breakers, but we’re taking the Breakers to win.

They are only going to get better with more game time under their belt, and we haven’t been overly impressed by the Phoenix.

Punters should get underdog value with the visitors.

Betting tip: New Zealand Breakers

Breakers by 5

8:00pm Cairns Taipans vs Sydney Kings @ Cairns Convention Centre

The Kings play their first game of the week, and it’s a tough one against Cairns on the road.

Sydney owns four wins from six games, so defending its title is going well enough without setting the world on fire.

It’s playing better than Cairns, and although it’ll be close, we’re taking the Kings to edge clear in the second half.

Betting tip: Sydney Kings

Kings by 5

Sunday 29/10/23

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

Most of the money will be for United, and we can’t see them losing to Illawarra.

They are the much better team, especially with the Hawks’ struggles continuing from last season.

The line should be around 8.5 for United.

Betting tip: Melbourne United

4:00pm Brisbane Bullets vs Tasmania JackJumpers @ Nissan Arena

The JackJumpers are a better team than the Bullets, and that could be evident on Sunday afternoon.

We like what we see with the JackJumpers, who are better at home, but they still have enough upside on the road.

Punters could get value odds.

Betting tip: Tasmania JackJumpers
