Total Over/Under (183.5): 1.82/1.88
The Sabres were rock bottom of the league last season but had a major overhaul of their roster after the new season started. Just a couple of rounds in their coach and former top-tier NBL and Australian basketball legend David Barlow began putting together an elite title-contending team.
First names to arrive were New Zealand international players Shea Ili and Tohi Smith-Milner, both elite NBL players, and were followed by a couple of other quality additions mostly from the nearby NBL team Melbourne united.
Their new-look lineup with title-winning players from the elite tier immediately started notching wins but will be weakened for this game with the absence of its starting center from the Melbourne Phoenix Tohi Smith-Milner,who is representing New Zealand at the FIBA Asia Cup.
Mt. Gambier Pioneers
Even though the Sabres will not have a complete roster, they still have more than enough quality left to be competitive against the Pioneers. Mt. Gambier are also undermanned and without their best player Michael Harris. Just like the Sabres they have a long and quality rotation but it seems this absence has been too much for them because they lost their last two games(which happens very rarely to the Pioneers).
They will try to redeem themselves away from home but it doesn´t get any harder than playing against this reinforced Sandringham team on their floor. In difference to last season, they are not an opponent you would want to face when struggling so the Pioneers will have to dig deep if they want to come away with a very important win.
Sandringham Sabres vs. Mt. Gambier Pioneers Prediction
Both teams will be without a key piece but overall the Sabres seem stronger and better as a team with more top-tier experience. With their new reinforcements they went from rags to riches in just a couple of months and we expect them to continue with their good performances.
We think Sandringham are one of the main title favourites this season and should be the favourites in this game so we will back them to cover the spread.
