Brisbane Bullets vs South East Melbourne Phoenix NBL betting preview
It’s now or never for the Brisbane Bullets and the South East Melbourne Phoenix, who will clash at Nissan Arena this Thursday night in the NBL.
Both teams are trying to make the NBL finals this season, but a tight ladder means neither can afford to drop many matches in the run home.

The Phoenix have lost four of their last five matches to fall to second-last on the ladder, but they are only two wins outside the top four.
The NBL was thrown into a strange state after the New Zealand Breakers beat the Sydney Kings and Melbourne United to create the crazy ladder situation we have today.
It will be up to the Bullets in their home arena, to see which of these two sides will have the better chance at making the NBL finals.
Brisbane Bullets vs South East Melbourne Phoenix NBL player tips
Lamar Patterson to score 20+ points
The NBL as always been known as a guard’s league, but the dominance of forwards like Lamar Patterson has changed the way the game is played. The Brisbane Bullets run most of their offence through Patterson, who is very good in the thick of the action and will be hard to stop on his home court.
Mitchell Creek to record a double-double
Two of Mitchell Creek’s better games this season have been against the Brisbane Bullets, but he is yet to record a double-double against them. Creek is dominant at both rebounding and passing, making him a big threat for the Phoenix. The Bullets will have to keep a close eye on Creek in this match.
Brisbane Bullets vs South East Melbourne Phoenix NBL total points betting
Total match points over 190.5
These teams have played each other twice this season, going over 200 total points on both occasions. Take the overs if the points line is set anywhere below the double ton, as the Brisbane Bullets are in very good form on the offensive end.
