NBL Round 5 is filled with tight match-ups and Sunday will be no different when the New Zealand Breakers take on the Perth Wildcats.
New Zealand has the overseas home advantage on its side, but the Wildcats are on a strong win-streak.

Having played only a few days earlier against the Brisbane Bullets, Perth players will begin to feel it after travelling from Perth to Brisbane and then to New Zealand.
Corey Webster and RJ Hampton helped the Breakers win over the Cairns Taipans, scoring 41 points between them and shooting 8/13 from beyond the arc.
How Perth gets through the match against the Bullets will determine the team’s fate for the trip across the ditch. If the Wildcats win in Queensland and avoid any serious injuries, we expect a high-level game on Sunday.
New Zealand Breakers vs Perth Wildcats betting tips
Bryce Cotton over 20 Points
With an average of 21 points per game, Bryce Cotton is the fourth-best scorer in the NBL this season. His speed and shooting create plenty of opportunities, whilst his level head in traffic only adds to his value. Bryce will give RJ Hampton a very tough assignment, more than likely too tough for the young NBA prospect.
Total match points over 170
The ability to score runs wild across both parties, as they are filled with players that can shoot and dribble, opening the floor and spreading the defenders. These two teams are capable of breaking the 100-point mark, as they have done multiple times already this season.
Perth Wildcats to win by 1-10 points
It is going to be a very tough road trip for the Perth Wildcats, but they will handle the pressure and get through. New Zealand will have all the momentum to begin the match, but once the second half begins and the combination of Bryce Cotton and Terrico White are in rhythm, the Perth franchise will be hard to stop.
