A spot in the NBL Finals is on the line this Saturday as the Brisbane Bullets host the South East Melbourne Phoenix at Nissan Arena.

The Bullets currently sit sixth on the NBL ladder with a 14-15 record, but they are only a win outside the top four.

Depending on how well Brisbane plays in the next month, it could easily still make the NBL Finals.

The SEM Phoenix squad sits in a much more comfortable position, with 17 wins from their 31 matches, placing them third in the standings.

Melbourne United and the Perth Wildcats are too far ahead on top for Phoenix to usurp them, but the South East Melbourne boys cannot afford a loss.

With just three rounds of NBL action remaining, every team will want to build momentum before the playoffs, which is why Phoenix and the Bullets will both want to win this contest.

Both teams have won four of their last six contests, making it very hard to tip a winner for this Saturday’s clash.


Brisbane Bullets vs SEM Phoenix betting predictions

SEM Phoenix to win by 1-10

Although the Bullets won the most recent clash between these sides, we are backing in South East Melbourne to get the job done this week on the road. Phoenix is in excellent form after beating Melbourne United in their latest match, as Keifer Sykes starred with 26 points and six assists. SEM has a winning record on the road this season and it should get the job done here in a close contest.

SEM Phoenix by 1-10 points

Mitch Creek to score 20+ points

A South East Melbourne player has scored 20 or more points in each of its last three contests, and we think Mitch Creek will have the hot hand this Saturday. Creek has scored over 20 points injust three of his last 10 contests, but his form slump should end as we approach the Finals. With an average of 18.5 points per game this season, Creek is easily Phoenix’s best scorer.
