Re: NBL Round 5
Sorry BG. I'm against you on this one.
Townsville @ Sydney
8 units Sydney @ $1.70
Everyone is getting on Townsville but Sydney at home should be too strong.
Ben Knight is back and whilst he probably wont' get many minutes, that will help Sydney having him there. The signing of Luke Kendall is big for Sydney. He is a quality player and I can see him having a big night tonight and lead Sydney to a victory.
In other news, Sydney's imports, Rod Grizzard and Taj McCulloch have been given a kick up the arse. That should inspire them to play better than they have been.
With all these factors considered, this points to a Sydney win.
Gold Coast @ Cairns
6 units Gold Coast v Cairns - Over 160.5 @ $1.90
5 units Gold Coast v Cairns - Over 80.5 @ $1.90
James Harvey has said that the Blaze are still struggling to adjust to the three point line. He has said that fans want to see high scoring games. They were woeful last week and need to hit some three's.
'The other night we were two from 24 from the three-point line, which is pathetic. I don’t think us guards even hit a three. I am confident that as the year goes on we will get used to the change. It Is important we do because the fans want to see high scores.
It is a fine line at the moment in the NBL, trying to adapt to what is happening in the rest of the world, but still trying to put on a show that is exciting for the fans.
As much as defence is important, you want to keep the fans excited and that is where things like three-point shooting and dunks are so critical. '
The Blaze will unveil two new signings tonight which should help them address that problem. If Blaze can get their shooting on, their games will reach 180 consistently. 160.5 is too low IMO. If it were high 160's, I don't think I would touch it, but 160.5. Yes please.
3 units under 163.5 @ $1.90 - Blaze v Taipans
3 units under 159.5 @ $1.90 - Kings v Crocs
