Sydney Kings @ Melbourne United
May 2nd 3:00pm
An eleven-game winning streak is on offer for league-leader Melbourne United when it faces the Sydney Kings at John Cain Arena on Sunday afternoon.
United made it 10 undefeated games in a row after sweeping aside the New Zealand Breakers on Wednesday with 90-76 victory.
Scotty Hopson proved to be one of the main scoring sources in the win with the American import adding a game-high 25 points.
The Kings, like United, are also on an undefeated run, albeit not to the heights reached by United.
Sydney has notched up four consecutive victories with the latest of those being a thrilling 79-75 overtime win against the Illawarra Hawks last weekend.
Adam Forde and his men will absolutely give themselves every hope to bring this United winning run to an end and they only have to back to March 19 to realise why.
The Kings were the last team to defeat United and did so with a 103-75 annihilation.
It’s clearly tough to tip against United at this stage of the season but the Kings’ point spread looks a nice bet.
Suggested Bet: Sydney Kings +4.5 at $1.90
