It’s been tough to trust the Breakers during this up and down season. New Zealand recorded back-to-back wins over Cairns and Brisbane over the long weekend, but even with home-court advantage, the Breakers still find themselves as the underdog with Melbourne coming to town.
United also got their season back on track defeating Adelaide in a blowout 114-91 road win. Melbourne had won just two of their last five games coming in, but now find themselves atop the ladder after Sydney’s struggles against Perth.
Melbourne have won four of their last five meetings against New Zealand, although their two games this season were both been decided by as little as seven-points. Even worse, United are a miserable 5-8 as the favourite against New Zealand, while the Breakers are a much more impressive 9-1-3 as the underdog at the line.
Tip: New Zealand Breakers at $2.30
