A 12-point blowout win over rivals South East Melbourne last week has seen United open as the early favourites on the road in Auckland. We take a look at Thursday’s (07/11/2019) NBL 2019 match which is between the New Zealand Breakers and Melbourne United.

Melbourne finished Round 5 off in style after losing by five to the Taipans last Monday night, but there’s still plenty of work to do at 2-4 as they prepare for a very resilient looking Breakers team.
New Zealand also finds themselves with two wins on the season after defeating the Taipans by eight points last Thursday. Unfortunately, the Breakers couldn’t keep the good times rolling at home though as they lost by five to the Wildcats three days later.
The money on offer head-to-head here is very tempting but I’m going to play it safe with the Breakers at the line. New Zealand has been the second-best side when it comes to covering the spread at 4-2, so until proven otherwise, back the Breakers with home-court advantage.
Tip: Melbourne United at $1.81
