2021 NBL Round 17 Tips and Predictions: Saturday, May 8th

 

NBL

2021 NBL round 17 kicks off with four games on the weekend, two on Saturday with the al-Melbourne battle and Taipans vs. Brisbane. Check out expert betting predictions and tips for both games on Saturday.

S.E. Melbourne Phoenix vs. Melbourne United

Betting tip: S.E Melbourne Phoenix to win

Melbourne United was running on victory but came crashing down from the high after getting beaten 82-69 by Perth on Wednesday. The team lacked its usual top-notch credentials, and they could be in the taking for the hungry Phoenix on Saturday’s game.

The Phoenix needs this win after losing four of its last five matches. The team hasn’t been doing much better after Keifer Sykes sustained an injury but could improve their performance and ride over the poor execution that Melbourne United showed the last game. It would make a huge statement for the younger Melbourne brother to beat the bigger team.

Cairns Taipans vs. Brisbane Bullets

Betting tip: Brisbane Bullets to win

Cairns Taipans hasn’t had any solid standing throughout the 2021 season, with only seven winnings and 20 losses. In Round 17, it doesn’t look like Cairns Taipans’ execution will improve, but the team could still play for pride. However, Cam Oliver leaving mid-season certainly won’t help.

Meanwhile, the Brisbane Bullets are coming off strong and trying to reclaim their glory after losing four of their last five matches. Vic Law’s injury will make the Brisbane struggle a bit, but they are still among the most capable teams.
