An 11-point loss to Melbourne last week is hardly how you’d like to enter the finals, but the Wildcats have a huge chance to get things off on the right foot against the Bullets at home.
Perth have won their last four home games, three of which have been by eight-points or more. Brisbane, meanwhile, have lost their last three away games including a less than impressive 11-point loss to the lowly Taipans two weeks ago.
Brisbane snuck into the finals with a handy 36ers loss and a win over the Breakers last week, but are they contenders or pretenders in this semi-final round?
As the away underdog the Bullets are 2-4 against Perth, while the Wildcats hold a sturdy 11-3 record as the home favourite over the last 12-months. Brisbane haven’t won in Perth since 2017, and after showing so many inconsistencies over the last month, it’s difficult to see them pulling off an upset against a Perth side that has arguably been the best team all season.
Tip: Perth Wildcats at $1.35
