The NBL schedule has left us with another beauty as the first-place Melbourne United travel to face the third-place Sydney Kings on Friday night. It’s huge as far as the hosts are concerned – a win for the Kings could not only see them leapfrog the Wildcats for second, but also tie them on percentage-points with Melbourne atop the ladder.
United have now won four-straight thanks to two brilliant victories over the Breakers last week. Likewise, the Kings have also got their season back on track riding a two-game winning streak after making short work of the Bullets.
So who should you side with?
If recent history is anything to go by, you should expect this one to be close. The last three meetings between these two have been decided by seven-points or less, but it is worth nothing Melbourne have won all three of those games.
United also hold a handy 24-0-11 away record over the last 12-months, and with some fairly even odds on offer, you have to like Melbourne to further cement themselves as the NBL’s number one team.
Tip: Melbourne United at $1.66
