NBL – Sydney Kings v Melbourne United Preview

Sydney Kings v Melbourne United

Wednesday December 30, 4.30 PM , Sydney Olympic Park

Its Sydney versus Melbourne in NBL action live on Fox!

Game rating – Sydney Kings 89 vs Melbourne United 90

The Kings played to their projected score last week when losing to the Breakers for the fourth time this year at home (83-93) with the Breakers covering the line.  United fought back from the brink of disaster when trailing at half time to come back and beat the Wildcats at home (92-87) in a really tight contest. Finally Melbourne found their mojo with Goulding getting hot from outside the stripe and Warrick getting it done on the boards.  The Kings will welcome back their number one player Josh Childress for this clash.


The last time they met the Kings pulled off the upset of the year winning (81-96) with Sportsbettingmax followers enjoying the +11.5 start.  Josh Childress will return for the Kings and Damion James will be taken off the Active Players list.  With Sydney you know what you are going to get, loose high scoring basketball with minimum defence.  Melbourne are similar if they have the appetite for the contest.  Both sides look ready to score positive to their projected game ratings so the Game Total OVER appeals as the safe bet.
