adelaide 36ers vs. South east melbourne phoenix

march 4th 7:30pm

South East Melbourne Phoenix takes a trek over the border to face the Adelaide 36ers at Adelaide Entertainment Centre.

The Phoenix hit this contest full of winning momentum after holding off Perth for a 86-80 victory last Saturday, while the 36ers were narrowly defeated by Sydney. 

Both teams sit at opposite ends of the spectrum. 

The Phoenix are looking to chase down Melbourne United in the top spot and the 36ers trying their best to stay away from the bottom of the table. 

This is the first time they will meet this season after having their early fixtures postponed and the market is siding with the visitors at a spread of -5.5. 

With veteran power forward Mitch Creek playing in good form after a 22-point game against Perth, the visitors hold the aces here and should be able to get the win. 

Suggested Bets: South East Melbourne Phoenix -5.5 at $1.91

tasmania jackjumpers vs. new zealand breakers

march 5th 5:30pm

The Tasmania JackJumpers get a golden opportunity to creep closer towards a playoff spot when they face the struggling New Zealand Breakers.

The JackJumpers have had a surprisingly strong start to their inaugural season, but will be needing to bounce back off consecutive losses. 

Their last loss came against NBL stalwart Perth, which is nothing to be overly disappointed about. 

The Breakers have battled to deal with the absence of captain Thomas Abercrombie. 

With Josh Adams piloting this JackJumpers team, expect him to have a big say in this contest as he looks to add to his 16-point per game average. 

Suggested Bets: Tasmania JackJumpers -3.5 at $1.87

melbourne united vs. brisbane bullets

march 5th 8:00pm

Holding down top spot in the NBL will be at the forefront of Melbourne United when it prepares to face the travelling Brisbane Bullets at John Cain Arena.

Since going down to the JackJumpers last month, United have gone on a roll to win their last four fixtures and have crushed all before them. 

Chris Goulding and co have sent an ominous warning to the rest of the league they their championship defence is well and track. 

The Bullets will try to stand in their way after a strong win over Tasmania. 

The return of Nathan Sobey has been a stark improvement for the Bullets over the last fortnight, but United is a completely different class.  

Suggested Bets: Melbourne United -7.5 at $1.90
