NBL Round 6 Predictions

Friday 7/1/22

7:30pm Adelaide 36ers vs Perth Wildcats @ Adelaide Entertainment Centre

Perth currently sits at the top of the NBL ladder with five wins from six games and we’re not surprised.

The Wildcats are always near the top of the leaderboard and having Bryce Cotton helps. He is leading the league with 24.5 points per game, so the 36ers have their work cut out for them.

It hasn’t been a good start for the 36ers and we think they’ll struggle on Friday, despite having home court advantage.

Take Perth to extend their NBL lead.

Saturday 8/1/22

5:30pm Tasmania JackJumpers vs Sydney Kings @ Mystate Bank Arena

It has been a tough start to the NBL for the JackJumpers, who won their first game but have scored only one win since.

They currently sit in ninth place with only New Zealand behind them, so they’ll be desperate to score a win over the Sydney Kings. However, that could be easier said than done.

Despite some troubles, the Kings have looked better of late. They have won two of their last three, so they’re heading in the right direction.

It should be a close contest, but we give the edge to Sydney.

8:00pm Cairns Taipans vs South East Melbourne Phoenix @ Cairns Convention Centre

Cairns and South East Melbourne have played only four games due to scheduling problems, but the Pheonix have looked better.

They currently sit in second place with three wins from four games, which slightly better than Cairns. The Taipans have looked good at times, but punters never know what to expect.

They have a team good enough to make a finals run, but there is more consistency with the Phoenix, so we’re taking the to win.

Sunday 9/1/22

1:00pm Illawarra Hawks vs Melbourne United @ WIN Entertainment Centre

It’s the marquee game of the week as the Hawks and United battle for a top three position on the NBL ladder.

The Hawks have three wins from four games and they’re looking to bounce back from losing their first game of the season.

Melbourne has rattled off four consecutive wins after losing its first two games. It has been an excellent bounce back, but beating the Hawks at home is tough.

We expect bookmakers to offer a close market, but we’re picking the Hawks to come off some rest with a big performance.

3:00pm Brisbane Bullets vs New Zealand Breakers @ Nissan Arena

There isn’t much consistency with the Brisbane Bullets, but they’re playing much better than the New Zealand Breakers.

New Zealand was always going to struggle under these conditions, and after losing all six games so far, we can’t see it getting much better.

Brisbane has a team capable of winning the title, so we expect it to play better over the next few weeks. Take the Bullets to score a comfortable victory.

Monday 10/1/22

7:30pm South East Melbourne Phoenix vs Tasmania JackJumpers @ State Basketball Centre

The class edge is with the South East Melbourne Phoenix and they should be too good for the JackJumpers.

The Phoenix have been playing some of the best basketball in the NBL and getting home court advantage only helps their chances.

Tasmania has players who can knock down shots, but it’s still experiencing growing pains. Therefore, take the Phoenix to score an easy win on Monday night.

Tuesday 11/1/22

7:30pm Cairns Taipans vs Brisbane Bullets @ Cairns Convention Centre

It’s always a close game between the Taipans and Bullets, but we expect the Bullets to get it done.

Robert Franks is only improving and the American import could be the key to success for the Bullets, who also have Lamar Patterson.

Cairns has struggled with depth at the point guard position and punters could get excellent value for the visitors.
