The Bullets’ path to the finals is pretty simple. The Wildcats need to beat Adelaide in Perth on Friday night for Brisbane to face a “win and you’re in” type scenario on Saturday night against the Breakers.
Nothing about the task ahead is easy for Brisbane, although they do have to feel pretty confident with a traveling Breakers side coming to town. New Zealand beat Brisbane at home back in November by a point, but on such short rest following Thursday’s home game against the Hawks, it’s not surprising to see the Bullets as favourites.
Brisbane only have themselves to blame if they fail to make the Top 4. The Bullets’ 11-point loss to Cairns last week was a low point in what has otherwise been a very up and down season, and since they’ve won only two of their last four home games, it’s hard to find any confidence in Brisbane with their season on the line.
The Breakers might be on short rest, but as we saw last week in Sydney, they are capable of winning big road games. With a 3-1 record against the spread as the road underdog vs. Brisbane, this should be a nail-biter.
Tip: New Zealand Breakers at $2.67
