Breakers vs United, NBL Predictions Jan 14

Friday Night NBL Action, and we have the New Zealand Breakers taking on Melbourne United in Tasmania at MyState Bank Arena.

The Breakers will come into this match full of confidence after winning against the Bullets last week in the only NBL22 Round 6 match. They were impressive in that match, and may fancy themselves against a quality Melbourne United side.

Melbourne United have not played a match for almost two weeks. Their last game was against the Tasmania JackJumpers on New Years Day, in which they were too good and won the game 72-76.

Both sides will be desperate for another win, and it will be interesting to see how the New Zealand Guards can handle some of the elite Melbourne United smaller defenders.

Here are some NBL Tips and NBL Predictions for the Breakers vs United on the 14th of Jan.

The Breakers are coming off their first win of the season, but can they back it up?

Melbourne United has a great record against the Breakers and their guards are playing fantastic defence to start NBL22.

New Zealand big man Yannick Wetzell is in fine form right now, but will need a huge match if they are any chance in this one.

Melbourne United are the favourites and should get this one done, but the Breakers could hang around for an extended peroid.

Prediction – Melbourne United (Win) ⭐
