Manawatu Jets Team News

While the top 6 and the playoffs are still within reach, the last-placed Manawatu Jets will have to start winning as soon as possible if they want to remain playoff contenders. Currently, they find themselves on a 5-game losing streak with two most recent losses coming against the Auckland Tuatara and the Franklin Bulls, when they hung on until the final five minutes and then failed to make any scoring impact.

The dynamic import trio of Danny Pippen, Javion Blake and Mustapha Heron has been combining for an average of 65 points per game, but the rest of the team needs to step up. The recent addition of veteran Marcel Jones, who crossed over from the Taranaki Airs, has helped their cause but the Jets still haven´t found a solution on how to end their late-game scoring drought that has prevented them from winning their last two games.

Otago Nuggets Team News

During the first seven games the Otago Nuggets were looking flawless and were riding a seven-game winning streak, but then came the injury of their leading import Jaquori McLaughlin which has completely hampered their season.

The star-studded team led by center Sam Timmins, scorers Michael Harris and Todd Withers has now officially entered a serious slump with three consecutive losses and it doesn´t seem the situation will improve as they visit Palmerston North and the Manawatu Jets.

Their leading import McLaughlin has once again been ruled out of action due to injury, while their newest recruit Tai Webster is yet to make his debut due to personal reasons. With major pieces out of their lineup once again, they seem like the perfect opponent for Manawatu to end their long losing streak.

Manawatu Jets vs Otago Nuggets Prediction

With all the roster issues the Otago Nuggets are dealing with at the moment, this game seems like a perfect opportunity for the Jets to finally end their dry spell and get back into the win column.

The Nuggets will be playing without their leading import and have just suffered a massive blowout loss at the hands of the Southland Sharks, while the hosts will have a complete lineup. That´s why we decided to back the Manawatu Jets to remain competitive until the end of the game and to cover the +4.5 spread.
