The Bullets find themselves on the outside looking in after back-to-back losses last weekend. Brisbane can still make the finals from here, but they’ll need to make full use of home-court advantage, something they’ve failed to do in recent weeks.
Illawarra also have plenty on the line this week now tied on percentage-points with the Bullets. A win would see the Hawks leapfrog Brisbane for fifth on the ladder, making them an intriguing dark horse to potentially sneak into the finals.
The last time these sides met, Brisbane walked away with a commanding 100-74 victory on the road. The Bullets have now won two-straight over the Hawks, including an equally impressive 19-point blowout in Brisbane back in November.
Despite their success though, it’s surprising to see the Bullets at such a short price. The three-point line looks about right, but it’s worth keeping in mind the Hawks are 3-1 as the spread underdog against Brisbane. We’re backing this one to be a little closer than recent history suggests.
Tip: Brisbane Bullets at $1.53
