Pau-Orthez vs Le Mans
Pau Orthez(Elain Bernais) at home has 4-1 record and they lost only to Monaco by 2 points at the start of the season. They won against Lyon who was trailing by 10+ points and came back to final 3 points deficit. This is a slight problem with Pau Orthez they are better and create the difference but tend to lose it at the end. Both teams won at Reims, the same Reims that played OT with Lyon yesterday. Again Pau Orthez in that game had 15+ points advantage and at the end came to 7 points only. On other hand Le Mans lost at Lyon. Both teams played against Strasbourg and Pau Orthez won by 5 points while Le Mans lost by 4, so it is 9 points difference. Pau Orthez won against Paris Levallois by 15 points and Le Mans lost to them by 11 points, so the difference is there, they just have to claim it on the court and Le Mans should be another well known French team they beat. Pau Orthez has problems on the road but at home they are solid and win against opponents with different pace, they adjust to it. I do not understand this line considering everything, it should have been at least at -7 for Pau Orthez. True they lose points at the end of the game and Le Mans will not surrender since they collected two losses in a row and they could come back with few three pointers but again the line is short and they will have to foul and still it should pass. If everything goes as expected this should be 81:74 game.
