We have expert betting tips for all seven NBL Round 6 games this week.
We’re getting into the interesting stage of the NBL competition where some teams are already under the pump.
On the contrary, some teams are flying out in front and that makes for an exciting Round 6 of the NBL.
It starts on Thursday with the Breakers vs. Melbourne United.
NBL Round 6 Betting Tips
5:30pm New Zealand Breakers vs. Melbourne United @ Spark Arena
It has been a tough start for the Breakers and it’s not about to get any easier.
They have traded wins over the last five games and they know welcome a Melbourne United side which has found confidence.
After a rough start to the season, United have hit back with consecutive wins and they could start steamrolling through the competition now.
They’re playing on the road but there’s no real weaknesses in the Melbourne side.

7:30pm Brisbane Bullets vs. Sydney Kings @ Nissan Arena
Brisbane got off to a fast start, then had a three-game slump but has rebounded well with consecutive wins.
Their mental toughness will come into question this week as the face the Sydney Kings. The Kings are fresh off their first season loss, which came against Melbourne United.
Sydney isn’t a team that looks likely to drop consecutive games often this season. They have quality top-to-bottom and Brisbane isn’t quite as talented.
Expecting Sydney to take this out.

5:30pm South East Melbourne Phoenix vs. New Zealand Breakers @ Melbourne Arena
The Phoenix looked the goods to start the season but come cracks are starting to show and New Zealand could take advantage.
They have lost two of their last three games and the Phoenix don’t match up well against New Zealand, who bring good physicality.
We write this before they play Melbourne earlier in the week, but if they lose that game, they’ll be desperate to take this out.
A close game is expected here and we’re picking an upset result.

8.00pm Cairns Taipans vs. Illawarra Hawks @ Cairns Convention Centre
The Illawarra Hawks are struggling like no other NBL team is right now. We’re unsure if they’re going to come out the other side.
The Hawks have the talent but injuries have dented their title chances and they haven’t been able to get going.
Cairns aren’t the most consistent team going around they will be confident about their chances this Saturday night.
They have won two of their last four games and playing at home is always a big positive for this club.

3:00pm Melbourne United vs. Adelaide 36ers @ Melbourne Arena
The fortunes are changing for these two teams, which had opposing starts to the season.
Melbourne started slowly but as their team has become healthy, the results have started to come.
Adelaide, on the other hand, started well but enter this game with consecutive losses.
United play twice this week after travelling to New Zealand on Thursday, but they have time to fly home and get some good rest.
Adelaide never travel well and bookmakers have United as the red-hot favourites for this game.

5:00pm Sydney Kings vs. Perth Wildcats @ Qudos Bank Arena
All eyes will be on this game as the Sydney Kings host the Perth Wildcats on Sunday afternoon.
The Kings have been the form team of the season so far and although they lost last week, they should take good benefit from that.
Perth play only once this week, which gives them time to travel and adjust in Sydney. That’s a big positive and it could see them have an advantage in this game.
They were able to beat the Breakers last Sunday despite Bryce Cotton having a shocker on the points-scoring front.
We’re smelling an upset here so go with the Wildcats.
