Geelong Supercats vs. Knox Raiders Prediction, Tips & Odds – May. 13, 2022
The Aussie NBL season has just finished with the Sydney Kings lifting the trophy at home, but the NBL1 season is only a couple of rounds in and entering its full swing. With the arrival of the final additions from the top NBL tier, the league is going to become much more interesting this weekend. Some NBL stars have already been showing their class at the lower level so there is no doubt another influx of top-tier talent will bolster the league even more.

This Friday the Geelong Supercats look to continue with their good form at home. One of the teams at the highest level in the league, that even shortly participated in the top NBL tier in the past, made sure they compete for the title this season with their roster moves. However, their flawless 4-0 record should be tested today as they welcome a gritty Knox side.
Geelong brought in their biggest superstar with NBL experience, George Blagojevic, early from Europe. With the support of a strong frontcourt and two American imports, their dominance has been expected but Knox is one of the teams in the league that has the potential to keep the game tight against them.
In their last round´s win over the Keilor Thunder, Geelong experienced problems and won narrowly 84:76. On the other hand, Knox has a dramatic double-overtime game against Diamond Valley and came away with a massive 110:102 away win. No doubt that action-packed victory full of highlight plays will raise the morale in their dressing room as there was no shortage of highlights in the entire last round.
Count ’em down.

Knox have been looking better and better as the rounds have been progressing. Their results have been unstable so far but they are riding a positive 3-1 record and have all the tools to make life difficult for the hosts. They welcome a new addition almost in every round and for this one there are rumours we could finally see Mason Peatling in uniform from the NBL team Melbourne United. Knox already have NBL experience embedded in their team with the likes of Adam Gibson and Reuben Te Rangi who arrived last weekend from the NBL team South East Melbourne Phoenix.
Geelong Supercats vs. Knox Raiders Prediction
In our opinion this game will be much more interesting than the odds suggest. Knox is a top team in this league with their NBL additions and elite defense. Not a lot of teams in the league can keep up with Geelong on their floor but Knox definitely can with their experience and long rotation. We don´t see the home team as 10-point favourites in this contest and see good value in the away team covering the spread.
Pick: Knox Raiders +10.5HC
