Betting: NBL 2018 Grand Final Series
Adelaide 36ers 2.73 & +5 @ 1.90
It seems there's plenty of confidence in United’s price at home but I can’t quite see it that way. 36ers drive and belief seems unwavering, which should make them extra tough to stave off. For conversation sake, 36ers add Creek, Drmic and Doyle since the 99-91 pre-Christmas HA result, with MVP contender Childress still finding his feet having only recently joined the squad. Prather was absent for United but they don’t seem to have the same guy back as yet. It seems fairly unanimous that the 4-0 season split means nothing. I’ve marked United as favorite by a mere whisker, so didn’t hesitate to take the early deal about Adelaide. I suspect they will tighten further by game time.
Not sure if I’ll go ahead yet but I believe a bet on a five-game-series is value at combined odds of 2.72 (the net result of backing both United 3-2 @ 5.00 & 36ers 3-2 @ 6.00)
