The bookies have favoured United in this one after Melbourne comfortably beat the Phoenix 110-98 a fortnight ago.
After a slow start to the season Dean Vickerman’s side has suddenly strung together four wins on the trot, but there is something to be said about the Phoenix’s convincing bounce-back win over the Breakers last week.
It’s still early in the season but this game could go a long way to determining the finals picture. A win for the Phoenix could see them close the gap on the Kings atop the ladder, while a win for United would ensure them a spot inside the top four for another week.
Both Throwdown games so far have been a bit of a dart throw. The only real trend has been both games going Over the Total, so it’s probably best to steer clear of anything else.
Tip: Melbourne United at $1.41
