NBL: Round 11 Punters Paradise
The NBL is heating up.
There's no denying that. What entertains more sports fanatic Australian than watching the game? Watching the game while knowing you want a specific team to win.
Your specific team that you cheer for isn't playing - people find ways to determine which team (or event) they're cheering for. One of those, is sports betting.
The Pick and Roll pundits have managed to sit down in a locked room with little to no disruptions and picked out a bunch of options which (hopefully) can expand your wallet a little bit.
Let it be known, this is in no way financial advice or a guide on how to win the NBL. We, are much like you - we like cheering for a result!

Round 11's Best NBL Selections
Wednesday 16th December Melbourne United vs. Sydney Kings
Melbourne United first to 10 points - $1.48 It's no secret Melbourne love to play at home, none better than Hisense Arena. The gears click and the team loves to start with a flurry to get their home crowd nice and loud. The last time they met the Kings at Hisense, United poured on a 20-7 run to start the contest. Expect the same Wednesday night.
Friday 18th December Illawarra Hawks vs. Sydney Kings
Sydney Kings +8.5 - $1.90 The Kings have been rubbish, there's no hiding from that one Kings fans. However, what puts them on our radar is because they're in such a unique situation here. Having just come off a game in Melbourne two nights ago, the team will be ever keen to grab a win over arch rivals Illawarra.
While the team may not actually achieve this, Sydney should certainly go close due to the nature of both the rivalry between the two and the fact that the Hawks will have one eye on preparing for New Zealand on Sunday. The Hawks will need all hands on deck if they are to successfully beat the Breakers across the ditch, therefore if they hold a handy lead late in this game, they will happyily throw away cheap points to rest stars and starters.
Saturday 19th December Townsville Crocodiles vs. Perth Wildcats
Perth Wildcats/Perth Wildcats HT/FT Double - $1.80 Ahh yes, the Perth/Townsville rivalry of the 2015/16 season. Hasn't it been fun to watch?! So why are we going to put ourselves through a nightmare to hope a result come through? Because we have faith in Trevor Gleeson and his crew, that's why.
The 'Cats won't forget what happened on their own home deck anytime soon, so they'll be ever keen to head up to The Swamp again and clean up. The Crocs may be THE most underrated side in the comp, however the 'Cats are currently THE BEST side in the competition.
Ladies and Gentlemen we hope you enjoyed our first ever edition of NBL Punters Paradise, we hope that these can reap rewards in the near future and therefore (hope) you return to read what is sure to be positive edition of Punters Paradise for Round 12!
