The Kings have really received the luck of the draw this week. Now sitting third on the ladder following last week’s overtime loss to Perth, Sydney have a chance to make up ground with a game in hand against the NBL’s worst side.
Cairns last beat the Kings back in 2017, but since then have lost five straight. Even more alarming, the Taipans have also lost their last five trips to Sydney, with the most recent coming in an eight-point overtime loss back in October.
The Kings have opened as eight-point favourites, which seems a little generous considering the disparity between the two sides. With Cairns backing up on a day’s rest following Thursday’s game meeting with Melbourne, this looks a safe bet.
Tip: Sydney Kings at $1.20
