The Hawks must be licking their lips knowing they face a traveling Breakers side on just a day’s rest. If you’ll recall, Illawarra tore apart New Zealand 107-96 when these two met last month, and with a sudden spot in the finals up for grabs, this couldn’t be any more in favour of the Hawks.
To their credit, New Zealand have won three of their last five meetings against Illawarra, although their form on the road makes an upset pretty unlikely. The Breakers short just 34% from three-point range in Melbourne last week, and they’ll need every point they can get against a Hawks side that leads the league in steals.
Illawarra are 5-3 as the spread favourite against New Zealand and it’s surprising to see them only favoured by three-points. Take the line and run with it.
Tip: Illawarra Hawks at $1.65
