Betting: NBL Round 12/WNBL Round 13
Brisbane Bullets 3.32 & +6.5 @ 1.90
Open air game that was roof closed for Bullets last year due to conditions. United down strength but were on fire in the ref-gate win over 36ers, with names plus bench stepping up. Bullets in good shape and form at present and they did seem caught-out as comfortable with selves when overrun by Kings. United reproducing same confidence & form would prove a major hurdle but Bullets on a loss response could well see them on the scout and as the hunter. Win price has trimmed slightly to 3.25 but they do look the value play tonight.
Melbourne United - Brisbane Bullets Under 175 @ 1.90
Conditions in the well shielded arena should be fairly OK. United 5-10 @ 171ppg. Bullets 6.5-9.5 @ 174ppg. Also some good numbers around home, away & similar opposition. United on fire for 190 last game, while Bullets were 196 but no 36ers or Kings involved tonight, instead I suspect coaches could be involved in keeping this down. Of some note, United only averaged around 168 in each of the past three seasons.
