Brisbane Bullets vs Sydney Kings, NBL Predictions Jan 21

Round 8 of the NBL 22 Competition begins on Friday the 21st of January, and we have the Brisbane Bullets hosting the Sydney Kings at the Nissan Arena.

The Bullets are coming off an impressive win against a sluggish South East Melbourne outfit, whilst the Kings have underperformed so far in NBL 22 with a loss to the New Zealand Breakers. The Kings committed 15 turnovers in that match and will need to handle the ball better against the Bullets.

The Kings will need to start winning some consistent games soon, and they have the talent to do so, with star import Jaylen Adams now available.

This is shaping up as a Friday Night NBL Thriller.

Here are some NBL Tips and NBL Predictions for the Brisbane Bullets vs Sydney Kings match on Friday, January 21st.

Quick Facts

  • Brisbane games have a combined Game Total Average of 181 in their last 3 home games
  • Brisbane have failed to cover the line in each of its last seven games on the back of a home win
  • Nathan Sobey has averaged 26.6ppg in his last five games against the Sydney Kings


This is a shaping up as a close Friday Night NBL Encounter.

The Sydney Kings were in charge for most of the match in their loss to the Breakers, but got a little complacent in the latter stages to lose the match. They come up against a tough Brisbane side, but the SEM Phoenix did not look anywhere near 100% last round in the Bullets win.

The Bullets will be tough to beat at home and Nathan Sobey plays well against the Kings, but a win is no certainty with the Kings desperately needing a victory.

This is a tough match to predict.
