Sydney Kings vs Perth Wildcats Tips

The Sydney Kings take on the Perth Wildcats in an NBL regular-season game on Thursday, April 1. The Wildcats are currently top of the NBL Season Ladder, while the Kings are fourth. This will be the third time these two teams have faced each other this season, with Perth leading 2-0. 

On Sunday (March 28) the Wildcats hammered the Kings 89-65, a margin of 24 points, Perth’s most one sided win of the season, and their seventh-straight victory. 

Sydney may yet make the playoffs this season, but Perth won’t be helping them – I’m backing the Wildcats to put on another awesome display on Thursday and defeat the Kings convincingly. 

  • Perth top of NBL Season Ladder
  • Perth 13-4 this season
  • Sydney 5th in NBL Season Ladder
  • Sydney 9-9 this season

Head to Head

The Sydney Kings and the Perth Wildcats have played each other 43 times in NBL games dating back to 2010. Overall, the Wildcats lead this head-to-head 34-9. In their last nine matches over the past two seasons, Perth lead 7-2. In their most recent encounter in March of this year the Wildcats ran out convincing winners by 89-65.

Sydney Kings Form

The Sydney Kings are currently fifth in the NBL Season Ladder, with a record of nine wins and nine defeats. Sydney recently enjoyed a run of three straight wins including a victory over second-placed Melbourne United, but lost last time out to their upcoming opponents the Perth Wildcats by 89-65 on Sunday.

This will be the third time the Kings have played the Wildcats this season, with Perth also defeating Sydney back in February 113-106. The Sydney Kings should take heart in the fact that Perth are defeating every team they play right now, and therefore go into this game with everything to win and nothing to lose. 

Perth Wildcats Form

The NBL truly has its elite team in the Perth Wildcats; Perth are the most successful team in the history of the NBL, winning the championships 10 times, they are the reigning  2019-20 NBL Champions, and are currently top of the NBL Season Ladder and laying waste to all of their rivals. 

It’s incredible to think that five games into this season Perth were 2-3 and near the bottom of the table. Since then they are 11-1, and currently enjoying a seven-match winning streak. What’s even more worrying for the rest of the league is that last time out the Wildcats demolished the Sydney Kings by 89-65, their most one-sided win of the season so far.

The Perth Wildcats are like the Lakers in the NBA or the Yankees in MLB – they are THE team, and when they playing well, it’s almost like the rest of the league gives up. In reality, there is still everything to play for, and while Perth are worthy favorites to win the NBL championship, the Sydney Kings can make the playoffs.
However, based off the shellacking Perth gave Sydney on Sunday, I have to back the Wildcats to win Thursday’s game convincingly, by at least ten points, in a match that will feature around 175 points.
