Bayern vs ALBA Berlin
Today we will find out who is the new champion in the German basketball Bundesliga. In the playoffs finals are Bayern Munich and Alba Berlin, two sides who were No.1 and No.2 seeded teams after regular season.
This is Game 5, so the score in the series is 2-2 after in the first two meetings we have had one road win each but in the next two both teams were able to defend its home court.
For this crucial match I must give advantage to Bayern. After one crazy game at the start of this finals (Alba won here in Munich with 96:105 after overtime), it was all about Bayern who won easily Game 2 and Game 3. Even last time Bayern was the one who was closer to win and to finish the job already back then but they failed at the end. Thus my bet on Alba end up as a winner but from what we had chance to see, maybe it wasn't exactly deserved.
Bayern is the one who made better adjustments compared with opening game of the series. Bayern started to play great defense and with much slower pace completely shut down Alba offense. Alba scored only 69, 66 and 72 pts in Games 2, 3 and 4. That was too low for a team who averaged more than 90.
That being said, probably Under 162.5 is not bad option either cause bookies didn't changed too much high totals that they were offering at the start of the series.
But, I will stick with Bayern cause I said already after Game 2 that we wont see anymore road win in this series.
