Bayern vs Skyliners
It's the deciding day in German Bundesliga QF playoffs. Game 5.
Probably no one expected that both best, Bayern and Alba would need to play these games 5, especially it was surprising when team from Munich is in question. Namely Bayern was by far best team in regular season, the team who had at one moment 20+ games long winning streak and the team who lost just two games overall. So, these 2-2 now in first playoffs round are huge surprise especially given on fact Bayern was 1-2 down.
But if there were some worries among Bayern fans, seems like they can be relaxed now. Cause, when you face possible elimination and you play on the road but you still win by 35 pts difference (50:85), then it's clear we have huge difference in quality here.
But I am not fooled by the result in Game 4. So I don't think that new blowout is a sure thing now. Namely, for those who missed the previous game, it should be noted that completely the opposite of Game 3 when Frankfurt literally was hitting everything, in Game 4 it was terrible performance from them, Frankfurt played very weak game. They couldn't hit anything, not even open shots, rebounding failed too...
Definitely it will be hard for Frankfurt to repeat today Game 3 performance but also no way they will be so weak as last time in Game 4.
That's way I have no strong opinion about handicap or totals. If I need to choose, it would be Bayern and over. But I don't want to depend on the fact in how good or bad shooting mood Frankfurt would be.
I want to depend only on Bayern offense in this game and I am quite confident the host offense will be on high level in this crucial game. That's why I opted for Bayern Munich team totals over. The line is set on 85.5 pts. IMO this is not too high number. I expect Bayern will go 90+ pts today.
As I said last time, Bayern need to find their great offense. This is a team who scored this season at home court many times even 100+ against opponents similar to this one. On the road that number went 90+ pts many times.
And Bayern really found its offense in Game 4. Final 85 pts are not showing the real picture cause the game was decided too early so Bayern slowed down in the 4th quarter and scored only 15 pts in final 10 minutes back then.
Now at home IMO we are going to see Bayern in the full speed for entire 40 minutes no matter how close or not Frankfurt would be.
