Tasmania JackJumpers vs. Perth Wildcats Prediction, Tips & Odds – Feb. 28, 2022
Perth will have an excellent opportunity to finally win a game this Monday. They travel to Tasmania to take on the JackJumpers who have been struggling recently. With a key absence in their roster they suffered two losses in their last three games after a sensational winning streak which saw them beat top teams like Sydney and Melbourne United.
Winning fours games in a row was a surprise by the newcomers in the league Tasmania. They are now officialy fighting for the playoffs and look to win and stay competitive in every game. Playing at home gives them an advantage but Perth have the experience they need to win this sort of away game. They already won some tough away fixtures this season and will look to win this game after suffering three straight defeats.
For some Perth have had a surprising drop of form but all of their recent defeats came against title contending teams. This game is a great chance for them to end their poor run of form and keep themselves inside top 4 and the playoff zone. Wildcats are looking very strong at the moment with three active American imports and with their center Matt Hodgson coming back after serving a suspension.
They have a stacked and long roster and should be able to take advantage of Tasmania´s key absence. Home team will be without a very important player in their rotation center Will Magnay who is a key contributor with 7.5 ppg and 4.3 rpg. He was injured couple of weeks ago and could return in the round after this one. His absence is a big blow for their rotation which is without any real stars. In order to win they need all of their players to perform and with his absence they will be severely shorthanded.
After a huge upset against the champions Melbourne United and a four-game winning streak, recently they are faltering without their key center. Brisbane and Melbourne Phoenix took advantage of their absence and won 94:86 and 83:71. They did beat the Hawks who are still very unstable and without real form. Even though they are not winning, the Wildcats are not in bad form and should be able to control this game and get a crucial victory.
Tasmania JackJumpers vs. Perth Wildcats Prediction
Perth already faced Tasmania this season. It was at the start of the season when they won convincingly 101:83 at home. This time it will be tougher for them playing away but overall they are a much better team when Tasmania is not complete.
Pick: Handicap Perth Wildcats (-4.5)
