Perth Wildcats - Illawara Hawks
Match of the second round of the Australian NBL between the title defenders Perth who welcome Illawara in the rerun of last season´t playoff final.
Start of the match: 13.10.2017.-12:30 CET, Perth Arena
Home team coach Gleeson has the recipe for the run and gun team of Illawara and after the win in the opener in the statements after the match he emphasized he is satisfied with the win but not with the defense of his team which should be a key factor for this tip because in that segment Perth has big advantage although we also think they are slightly better offensively. Rob Beveridge remained the coach of the Hawks after the last season but their roster has been alternated starting with the American imports Holyfield and Harris who left the team and they were replaced with Conger and Johnson while the rest of the team stayed untouched with Clarke at the pg and Norton and Martin at the sg and sf positions. However, Illawara is still showing weaknesses in their defense which has been their weak point for a while now and we don´t believe they can mount a surprise here after after losing to the decimated Taipans´s team in the season opener.
Probable starting lineups:
Perth: Cotton, Martin, Wagstaff, Tokoto, Walker
Illawara: Clarke, Norton, Martin, Ogilvy, Conger
Perth Wildcats - Illawara Hawks TIP
Perth has beaten Illawara in the last 4 out of 5 h2h matches covering this handicap every time including the three games of last season´s final. Illawara is looking even weaker than last season while Perth is certainly stronger and we believe they can cover this line and win routinely against a team they have the recipe to beat them.
