Canterbury Rams Team News
It seems the absences the Rams had are just temporary and should have those players available. At home they are a powerhouse with their leading player from the Australian NBL and the Adelaide 36ers, Sunday Dech. Even without a couple of key scorers they were able to take down a full Wellington side with their newest star reinforcement so with the form of the guests, they are definitely huge favourites.
In case the Giants lose their game winning this game by the Rams would be vital as it might give them second place. They had a tough start still waiting for key players to come but still managed to win games. Their newest addition was massive as they signed Matur Maker from the Sydney Kings and the Aussie NBL. So far he has averaged almost a double-double and was a huge miss against the Saints in the last round.
The @CanterburyRams picked up a big win over the Saints on Friday night behind the trio of Taylor Britt, Sunday Dech and Max Darling 🔥

Franklin Bulls Team News
The Bulls have been struggling but it is not coincidental. More than seven rounds have passed and they still don´t have their main new addition Corey Webster. When the season started he was playing in Egypt in the playoff final and then arrived back injured. With him the Bulls would be much stronger but it seems he will most probably miss this round too.
Guests lack import scoring which will be their biggest problem against a powerful home side which has weapons all over the court. Their entire starting five has to potential to produce high numbers and the Bullls have struggled recently. Their offense has been especially problematic averaging below 70 points per game. Their last defeat was very costly because it was at home against the worst team, the Manawatu Jets, who were without any wins so their morale must have been affected.
John Bohannon had 16 & 16, Zane Najdawi with 16 & 9 and Shane Temara with 21 & 6 for the Jets.

Canterbury Rams vs. Franklin Bulls Prediction
The Bulls will have a tough time ending their poor form against one of the strongest Canterbury sides we have seen so taking the Rams as the winners and covering the spread has solid value.
