I’m betting on Melbourne United unless I find good odds for Perth. I honestly can’t believe that the Sydney Kings beat Melbourne last month. When does the worst team beat the best team in any sport? Needless to say plenty of us went home with empty pockets that day. I like betting on basketball because the stats are usually consistent with the win but every once in a while you get results like what we saw last month.
Honestly, after last months performance against Sydney and with the slump Melbourne United is experiencing you’ll start to see better odds on Melbourne United even though they are the best team. So in some ways it’s a good thing they lost. Melbourne has already beaten the majority of the other major contenders in the rankings so they have already proven themselves a good team. Every team has an off night once in a while.
Melbourne will be playing the Cairnes next. With the narrow victory over the Hawks I don’t think it’s a sure win but I do believe they’ll win and you should get some acceptable odds out of the bookmakers as a result.
