Australian NBL

Australian NBL betting guide

Australian NBL Betting Tips

The NBL or the National Basketball League is the top tier of basketball in Australia, Oceania and New Zealand. It does come under the confederation of Oceania but has teams from all the three parts of the world, having been founded back in 1979. It also happens to be the only league in the Australian basketball pyramid currently.

EagleBet offers great betting tips on the National Basketball League and a couple of options from where you can start betting on diverse markets with best odds on the basketball league.

NBL Format

Despite being the only league in the whole pyramid, the NBL has just nine teams in the whole division. Eight of those teams come from Australia, while one comes from New Zealand and NBL games are regularly broadcast on ESPN in Australia and Sky Sport in New Zealand. Apart from that, games can also be streamed live online.

Since the start of the 2009-10 season, the format of the NBL sees every team play a total of 28 games in a single campaign. 14 of them are played at home, while the other 14 are played away from home. While this is the league stage of the competition, the top four in the division play in the Finals. Through the play-off system, the Grand Final is played in a best of five format.

The league starts early October and ends in February of the next year. The teams that finish in the top-two spots hold an advantage over the other two in the Finals because of their superior league position. EagleBet offers some amazing betting tips today and guidance for the NBL when it comes to teams that finish in the top two of the league.

NBL Top Performing Teams

Perth Wildcats are the reigning champions of the NBL. They have won the title as many as ten times with the recent coming in February 2020 itself. Melbourne United are at second in this regard and have won a total of five trophies, with their most recent one coming in the 2017-18 campaign. Another Australian side in Adelaide 36ers are third in this table, having won a total of four titles in the NBL but their last win came as far back as 2002.

The New Zealand Breakers are the only team from their country. They last won the title as recently as 2015 and like the Adelaide 36ers, they’ve won it four times too. Other teams include Brisbane Bullets, Cairns Taipans, Illawarra Hawks, Sydney Kings and South East Melbourne Phoenix. There has also been talk of adding a tenth team from Tasmania into the current format. But nothing of note has happened in that regard recently.

The addition of a new league will add another quality betting option, with our trustworthy bookmakers set to offer some very good odds for the Tasmanian side.

The Wildcats won the most recent campaign by racking up a points percentage of 123.35 percent, that was 16 percent more than the Taipans, who had finished second behind them. Wildcats’ very own Bryce Cotton racked up the most number of individual points in the campaign with 22.2 and he also won the MVP of the season accolade. The American was also the MVP of the Finals, helping his side to their tenth title.
