CAR vs WST Dream11 Prediction NZBL Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Canterbury Rams vs Wellington Saints

Share

CAR vs WST Dream11: The New Zealand Basketball League 2022 season is still in its nascent stages. But even early on, we can see the precedents set by certain times and figure out how things will pan out in the long run. This is true for any league. In this game, the Canterbury Rams will host the Wellington Saints.

The Rams have had a decent but not imposing start with four wins and three losses, being in the middle of the pack. They have played a bunch of close games and defeated Hawke’s Bay Hawks 73:71. On the other hand, the Wellington Saints have had a terrible start, being second-worst in the standings with just one win and four losses. The Saints and the Rams met ten days ago when the Rams defeated the Saints.

Host: Canterbury Rams
Visitors: Wellington Saints
Match Timing: 3 June, @ 01:00 PM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Cowles Stadium

NZBL Projections, Stats & Analysis

Rams in the middle, Saints need a boost.

Saints have the worst defense in the league and has been the only team that is just three points shy of giving 100 points on average. They are the worst rebounding team in the league with 30.2. Their offense isn’t exactly terrible, ranking third as they have compiled 83.2 Points Per Game. Offensively, Taane Samuel averages over 20 points, Tom Vodanovich averages over 13.5 rebounds, and Mike Smith averages 5 assists, all leading the team in those categories.

On the flip side, the Rams have averaged fewer points than the Saints, with 79.6. But their defense has been much better than the Saints, conceding only around 80 PPG. The main reason for their losses has thus been their wayward offense and their tendency to play way too many close games. For the Rams, Sunday Dech leads the scoring with 17.3 points per game, whereas Matur Maker leads the rebounds with 8.3 and Taylor Britt leads the assists category with 5.3.
