NBL Round 17

Starts tomorrow night ... A few jump out at me ...

Sydney ML at Singapore .. Loathe to back road favourites and plenty would've got burnt doing just that last week when Townsville were backed to the hilt (admittedly they opened as a dog at some books) .. Sydney though is a team that knows how win under all types of circumstances .. Sure they probably can't seriously challenge for the title this season but they don't lose many matches to teams below them on the ladder .. Ever since they ran the Bullets close in Brisbane a week and a half ago, the Kings have started to look similar to their old selves .. It's January and the finals are approaching, Sydney have a top four spot to hold down and are flat out better than the Slingers, whose team of "plodders" just won't trouble the Kings imo .. They also have a win in Sinagpore to their credit this season.

Adelaide -4.5 .. REVENGE! I get the hunch Adelaide and it's "knowledgeable" crowd has been counting down the days until Cairns returned to the DHD, after Stewey's OT buzzer beater silenced them in last year's quarter finals. Better still, they have an inform 36'ers team to pin their hopes on, at last!
Marcus Timmons crossed the Melbourne Tigers off his list of "former teams who've f*cked me over" hit list last saturday with a 27 point haul, and he'll be eager to to torch the club that sacked him just a dozen games after awarding him their season MVP award just two seasons ago (even though the headcase coach who made the call is now an assistant with the South Dragons) .. The Taipans have paid mere lip service to the word INTENSITY ever since realising two weeks ago that they boast nowhere near enough of it. Their second half lapse against NZ was symbolic of everything that's wrong with this lot at the moment - NO KILLER INSTINCT WHATSOEVER .. You simply CANNOT put your money on Cairns on the road atm .. If you don't believe me, let their 2-10 record do that .. Adelaide to win.

UNDER 212.5 West Sydney vs Townsville ... This is the NBL and laying 212 points is crazy imo... Even teams with matador "defense" like Townsville and West Sydney can't be banked on to execute well enough for four quarters at 4.5 points per minute for 48 minutes.. Brisbane maybe .. Not a lot of method to this play I just believe in fading the OVER on totals above 210 unless Brisbane is involved. These two didn't get anywhere near this number when they met a couple of weeks ago.

Melbourne vs South Dragons I don't have a lot of interest in .. local derby ect .. I expect the Tigers to put a beat down on the Dragons given they're coming off a horror loss at home but I just don't know if all is as it should be at the Tigers yet..
