Bayern vs Brose Baskets
The German Bundesliga, semifinals playoffs, Game 3 in the series best of 5
The series is tied with one win each. Both sides won the games at home. Bayern in Game 1 here in Munich quite easily, 95:72 while Bamberg also at first look easily at home in Game 2, 78:65. But note last game was much more tied than it seemed cause we had 59:59 at the end of the third period and then Bayern collapsed in the 4th quarter scoring only 6 pts.
Today team from Munich is a favorite to take again lead in this semifinals. But instead of betting Bayern -7, I like much more the totals. And I mean on Bayern team totals to go over.
This is a scoring machine team although they failed big time in the 4th quarter last time. Still, now Bayern is back at home and I expect to we see again that powerful offense.
Also, I have opinion it won't be so easy as in the opening match. Bamberg who by the way played Euroleague this season, should be a little bit more competitive this time. So, more tied game could be helpful for over bet cause we could see free throw penalty finish.
Even without that help, 82.5 seems to me low for Bayern against anyone in this league when playing in Munich.
Bayern has few absences. Milan Macvan is now already long time absence while another Serb, Vladimir Lucic is not yet fit, he missed the previous games in the series. Still, except the mentioned 4th quarter last time, Bayern mainly looking quite fine when their offense is in question.
