NBL Round 8 Predictions

Friday 17/11/23

7:30pm Adelaide 36ers vs S.E. Melbourne Phoenix @ Adelaide Entertainment Centre

The Phoenix haven’t been as good lately, but they’re still a much better team than the 36ers.

They sit in fourth position with six wins and five losses, and winning on the road hasn’t been a problem for the Melbourne-based team.

Adelaide has struggled with three wins, and we’re not surprised by the odds.

Betting tip: S.E. Melbourne Phoenix –4.5 @ $1.90

Phoenix by 7

Saturday 18/11/23

5:30pm Cairns Taipans vs Tasmania JackJumpers @ Cairns Convention Centre

We expect a close game between the Taipans and JackJumpers, so we must take the value odds with the home side.

They are the $2.35 underdogs to hold down the fort at home, which are much better odds than we expected from the sportsbook.

Tasmania is a quality team with excellent shooters on the floor. However, they’re not bullet proof, and winning in Cairns is hard.

Betting tip: Cairns Taipans @ $2.35

Taipans by 4

8:00pm Brisbane Bullets vs Perth Wildcats @ Nissan Arena

The Wildcats have improved over the last few weeks, but beating the Bullets isn’t an easy task.

Brisbane sits in sixth spot with five wins and six losses, and they’re the $1.96 underdogs to hold down the fort at home.

It’s going to be a close contest against the Wildcats, who have Bryce Cotton at their disposal. It could come down to the final play.

Excitement is expected, but we’re taking the Wildcats to come out ahead.

Betting tip: Perth Wildcats @ $1.84

Wildcats by 2

Sunday 12/11/23

2:00pm New Zealand Breakers vs Illawarra Hawks @ Spark Arena

Injuries have made life tough for the New Zealand Breakers, but they’re playing much better than the Illawarra Hawks.

New Zealand is always tough to beat at Spark Arena, and the Hawks have just fired their coach, so nothing is going right.

We’re not shocked by the $1.28 odds for the Breakers, who are –6.5 in handicap markets, which is a fair line.

Betting tip: New Zealand Breakers –6.5 @ $1.90

Breakers by 10

4:00pm Melbourne United vs Sydney Kings @ John Cain Arena

It’s a top of the table clash as United and the Kings battle for supremacy.

Melbourne owns nine wins and two losses, so it has been playing the best basketball throughout the season.

Sydney has seven wins and three losses, but there is class all over the floor for both teams, which makes it difficult.

We’re going with United to win in a close one. They get the advantage of playing at home, and punters get fair odds from bookmakers at $1.72.

Betting tip: Melbourne United @ $1.72

United by 5
