Melbourne United vs Adelaide 36ers Betting Tips
Melbourne United will aim to put the icing on a very successful regular season when they take over the Adelaide 36ers on Sunday. Melbourne United is currently the table leader with a record of 26-8, and Dean Vickerman's team needs only one more victory in the last two rounds for them to secure the leading position. As for the Adelaide 36ers, I don't see any changes in this team compared to last season, which means that their results were not good enough for them to fight for the playoffs. Undoubtedly, there is a huge difference between these teams in quality, and Melbourne United will aim to end the last home game this season with a victory.
Melbourne United is the biggest surprise this season in the NBL because they barely secured the playoffs last season, while this season, they were dominant overall teams. Melbourne United demonstrated strength against the Cairns Taipans in the last home game, winning 101-76, and this was the third victory in the last four games for Dean Vickerman's team.
Jock Landale (16.3 ppg) and Chris Goulding (16.1) are great this season, and they lead their team in every game and coach Dean Vickerman expects the most from these two in the playoffs. The equation is simple for Melbourne United, and if Dean Vickerman's team wins at least one of the last two games of the regular season, the first place will be theirs.

The Adelaide 36ers are in terrible form, the team has no solution in defence in recent weeks, and they have lost in each of the previous 6 league games. The Adelaide 36ers have conceded 191 points in their last two games (vs the NZ Breakers 76-94 and vs the Illawarra Hawks 83-97). The Adelaide 36ers are considered the second weakest away team this season in the NBL, and they managed to win only 3 times, while they suffered 14 defeats.
Head coach Conner Henry is not happy with his team's game this season, as Adelaide will end up in the same position as last year. Daniel Johnson played great this season (19.5 ppg), but lately, his self-confidence has decreased, so he scored only 9 points in the last round.
