Wellington Saints Team News

The Wellington Saints were convinced they would immediately start winning after the arrival of their newest reinforcements but it has been a different story. NBL Sydney Kings duo of VodanovichCooks is doing everything in its power to give their team a chance to win but the Saints are not looking like a real team on the floor.

After taking care of Taranaki and Southland, the champions have completely lost their form and entered a slump. Last week they lost a game against the Giants they had under complete control in the final quarter and then suffered a similar fate just two days later. Wellington almost built a 20-point lead in the first half away against the Bulls but then disappeared in the second half and lost by almost 20 points(90:73).

These kind of ups and downs and lack of consistency are extremely worrying so the Saints decided to fire their newly appointed coach Guy Molloy prior to this round. A unexpected move in the middle of the season, but with all the stars the Saints have signed this decision was only a matter of time.



Franklin Bulls Team News

The Bulls were suffering and patiently waiting for the return of their main superstar Corey Webster. They knew he was worth the wait because after his arrival the Bulls are playing at an elite championship level and winning games.

Webster single-handedly took down Nelson and Canterbury two rounds ago but couldn´t do it all by himself against the Saints last week. He received major help from Franklin´s newest import reinforcement Nathaniel Potts who supported him with 17 points and enabled his team to win.

This newest American signing by the Bulls is a clear sign they will be going for the title this season. New Zealand´s biggest basketball superstar Corey Webster is playing at a sensational level after returning from Egypt so only the sky is the limit for the Bulls who are currently one of the strongest teams in the league.




Wellington Saints vs. Franklin Bulls Prediction

A week ago the Saints were demolished away from home by the Bulls but this time we can definitely expect a closer game. Even though Wellington fired their coach and have been underperforming they are always dangerous at home, but they can´t have such a big advantage. The Bulls are title contenders with their new additions so we will back them to cover the spread.

Prediction: Handicap Franklin Bulls (+5.0)

Odds: 1.83
