A battle between 1st (Sydney Kings) v 2nd (Perth Wildcats) awaits us this Saturday night in what could be a potential Grand Final series preview. We take a look at Saturday’s (01/2/2020) NBL 2020 Round 18 match which is between the Perth Wildcats and Sydney Kings.
When: Saturday February 1, 8:00PM
Where: RAC Arena
Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
If all goes to script, the Wildcats would go into this game coming off a win against Melbourne United on Wednesday night, but even if they drop it they’ll still be in the top four.
The Kings will travel to Perth fresh after a big win over Melbourne United last weekend with the likes of Casper Ware dominating with a career-high eight three-pointers in the match.
Beating the Perth Wildcats at RAC Arena is one of the toughest tasks in the NBL.
The Wildcats almost were defeated, managing to scrape over the line against the NZ Breakers by a point last Saturday night.
They have an 8-3 record on their home court this season and would love to topple the top of the table Kings just before the finals get underway.
The Sydney Kings don’t mind a road trip either with a 7-5 record this season so it should give them some confidence heading to the West Coast.
With that in mind, while the Kings tend to do fine on the road it’s always best to back the home tea, especially when it’s the Perth Wildcats.
Expect another heart-stopper and the Wildcats to get the job done in a thriller!
Tip: Perth Wildcats at $1.68
