NBL Round 14 Tips & Previews

The NBL just keeps on delivering good games this season and we just keep on delivering on winners!

Punters that followed our tips last week would have had a genuine fill-up and we are confident that our strong results can continue this weekend! 

Cairns Taipans vs Brisbane Bullets
Cairns Taipans To Cover The Line (-5.5 Points) @ $1.90

Are the Cairns Taipans genuine NBL title contenders?

It is starting to look like that may be the case.

The Taipans were most experts selection to win the wooden spoon at the start of the season, but they have won six of their past eight games and scored big wins over Melbourne United and South East Melbourne Phoenix in the past fortnight. 

The Brisbane Bullets beat Melbourne United at the end of 2019, but consistency continues to be an issue and they seem incapable of stringing together back-to-back wins. 

Illawarra Hawks vs Melbourne United
Melbourne United To Cover The Line (-5.5 Points) @ $1.90

Anything can happen in the NBL this season and that was made clear when the Illawarra Hawks scored a huge upset win over the Sydney Kings last weekend.

Will this be the start of a resurgence for the Hawks? No. 

They have won back-to-back games only once over the past 12 months and they face a Melbourne United side that will be smarting from a shock loss at the hands of the Brisbane Bullets.

Melbourne United can win this clash comfortably and it would not surprise if the result gets ugly. 

Sydney Kings vs Adelaide 36ers
Adelaide 36ers To Win @ $2.95

The Sydney Kings looked to be cruising to the NBL title, but the wheels have fallen off somewhat in recent weeks. 

They have suffered back-to-back losses at the hands of the Perth Wildcats and the Illawarra Hawks and they face another tough assignment against the Adelaide 36ers.

Adelaide have won nine of their past 12 matches against Sydney and backing them as away underdogs over the past 12 months has been a highly profitable betting play. 

Get around the 36ers as the $2.95 currently available is an excellent price. 

SEM Phoenix vs New Zealand Breakers
Back SEM Phoenix To Cover The Line (-3.5 Points) @ $1.90

Out of nowhere, the New Zealand Breakers have found serious form and they head into this clash on the back of wins over the South East Melbourne Phoenix themselves, Ilawarra Hawks, Brisbane Bullets and Adelaide 36ers.

This winning streak, especially in Australia, can’t possibly last.

The Phoenix have been inconsistent in recent weeks, but they have won five of their seven games as home favourites and have covered the line in four of those clashes. 

They can cover the line comfortably and give the Breakers a reality check. 

Brisbane Bullets vs Perth Wildcats
Brisbane Bullets To Win @ $2

Home-court advantage is always key in the NBL, but it is particularly relevant for this clash between the Brisbane Bullets and the Perth Wildcats.

The home side has seven of the past eight games played between these two sides and the Bullets have won three of their past five games as home underdogs for a clear profit. 

Winning away from home is generally not an issue for the Wildcats, but they do seem to struggle in Brisbane and the $2 available for a Bullets victory is over the odds.
