Taranaki Airs vs Manawatu Jets Prediction, Tips & Odds – Jun. 25, 2022 07:30 CET
After not being able to keep up with the Hawks and the hectic tempo they imposed at home last week, the Taranaki Airs will look to rebound at home this weekend against the surging Manawatu Jets. The Jets have improved massively after the arrival of their imports and are currently on a 3-game winning streak. The Airs will still be without their starting center in this dangerous game for them which overall looks very promising.

Taranaki Airs Team News
Taranaki had roster issues and also flew into town late and barely made it to the game against the Bay Hawks. They were visibly distraught at the start and went down big early. Later on they never managed to fully recover and tie the game losing by double-digits(100:89).
The Airs were playing well before that game and even beat the league leaders Auckland at home. We think their biggest problem along with all the other difficulties they had is the fact they have only been playing one game per week for almost two months.
That has reflected on their form but they are still in the fight for the playoffs. For this game once again they will not be able to count on their main rebounder and NZ international center Tai Wynyard who is playing at the 3×3 World Cup.

Manawatu Jets Team News
In the last couple of rounds it has become clear that the Manawatu Jets are now a formidable force in the New Zealand NBL. All of a sudden they are the best rebounding team with their strong import centers who are the main reason they recently took down Auckland, Canterbury and Southland.
Last two wins were by double-digits so the Jets will be hoping their playoff push continues with another win against the undermanned Taranaki. The Airs are the favourites because of their home wins over some of the teams from the top but no one is sure at the moment what is the limit for Manawatu whose team is capable of beating any opponent in the league.
How ’bout them Jets! ✈️
They defeat the @SouthlandSharks 82-73 in Invercargill for their third straight win! 👏

Taranaki Airs vs Manawatu Jets Prediction
There is no doubt the guests are the hottest team in the league right now so it is more than affordable to take them to cover the spread in almost every game. They were poor at the start without any real firepower but are now looking like a top team with a complete roster and should keep this game competitive.
Prediction: Handicap Manawatu Jets (+5.0)
