Sydney will be eager to bounce-back from a very disappointing weekend after losing consecutive games to Perth and Cairns. The Kings’ sudden scoring drought came as a surprise as they failed to put up 100-points in both games, but with so much class and experience on the roster, you can expect plenty of fight from Sydney this week.
Melbourne heads into this game fresh from a 22-point win over the 36ers last week hoping to inch closer to the second-place Wildcats. United has won three of their last five games against Sydney, including seven straight home games dating back to 2016.
These sides met only a month ago at Melbourne Arena in United’s narrow three-point victory. The Kings sought revenge in Sydney a fortnight ago with a 10-point win, but you’re still better off sticking with the home side in this one.
United owns a very impressive 13-5 record as the home favourite against Sydney which is almost impossible to argue with. The Kings should keep this one to single digits but take the value on offer for Melbourne.
Tip: Melbourne United at $3.12
