Sydney Kings vs Melbourne United NBL Finals betting preview
NBL Finals action will make its way to Sydney on Saturday night when the Kings host Melbourne United in a fascinating matchup between two of the league’s powerhouse teams.
The rivalry has only grown since star point guard Casper Ware decided to switch colours and join the Kings this season, and now the two teams will play for a spot in the 2020 NBL Championship series.
Sydney won three of the four matches between these two in the regular season, including big victories by 23 and 18 points in their most recent meetings.
There are three players that you need to look out for on the United roster, and they are Melo Trimble, Shawn Long and Chris Goulding.
Melbourne’s top three scorers combined for an outstanding 69 points against South East Melbourne Phoenix in the final round of the season as United snatched a spot in the top four.
The Kings boast the strong two-way power of former NBA champion Andrew Bogut, who still has the class to dominate NBL matches.
Sydney Kings vs Melbourne United player betting specials
Casper Ware over 24.5 points + assists
When you come up against your old team in the semi-finals, you want to be the difference that proves your move was the right choice. Casper Ware will know he can be the X-factor that puts Sydney ahead, which he has done all season long. The Kings run offence through Ware and he does not disappoint, racking up around 20 points and four assists per game on average.
Chris Goulding 19.5 points + assists
We have targeted Chris Goulding as a money-making opportunity in this match as he is in blistering form. The United star has topped 20 points and grabbed exactly four assists in each of his last three matches. Goulding will bring his outside shooting to the contest and should be a solid contributor for Melbourne.
Sydney Kings vs Melbourne United total points odds
Total match points over 182.5
Normally we would rather look to go unders for the total match points in a final. However, the Kings and United are both very good at scoring the ball, making this a great opportunity to go overs. Their last four clashes have easily exceeded the 180 mark, with two matches going beyond 200 total points.
Sydney Kings vs Melbourne United NBL Finals predictions
Sydney Kings to win
Staying top of the table for the entire season is no easy feat to achieve, but the Kings did it easily in the end. Melbourne barely scraped into the finals, needing to win its last few matches and relying on results elsewhere. The Kings are going to win because they have been the better team throughout the season and have the home field advantage.
