They’ve lost four straight NBL matches heading into the post-season, but minor premiers Adelaide 36ers remain favourites to claim their fifth NBL title this season.

Adelaide are $3 front-runners with the TAB to win the 2016-17 championship ahead of their semi final series against Illawarra Hawks ($4). Cairns Taipans ($3.50) meet Perth Wildcats ($4.50) in the other semi, with both still well within the market.
