Adelaide 36ers vs Sydney Kings
The Adelaide 36ers continue to be one of the best betting sides in the NBL and they really should prove too strong for the Sydney Kings. Adelaide are 8-6 against the line as home favourites for a profit, while the Kings have covered the line in only three of their past 11 games as away underdogs.
New Zealand vs Fiji
New Zealand were beaten by Tonga in their final game of the pool stage, but they can bounce back to their best against Fiji. Fiji have had a fairly soft path to the knockout stages of the Rugby League World Cup and this is easily their toughest test. Fiji suffered heavy defeats at the last World Cup and the line of 16.5 points will not be enough.
Cairns Taipans vs Illawarra Hawks
It has been a tough start to the NBL season for the Cairns Taipans and they have won only two of their past eight games, while backing the Taipans as home favourites has been a losing betting proposition. The Illawarra Hawks have won nine of their past 20 games as away underdogs for a profit and they are over the odds in this clash.
Sydney FC vs Newcastle Jets
Sydney FC suffered a surprise loss at the hands of the Central Coast Mariners last weekend, but they are still clear favourites to beat the high-flying Newcastle Jets. Sydney FC have won their past six games against the Jets to nil and they can return to their best form in this clash on Saturday night.
