Giessen 46ers vs Bonn
Happy New year everyone, I wish you luck in betting and in life in general!
After watching last game of Giessen against Ludwigsburg where I had them at +5.5 I made a decision I will take Bonn in this game. I do not consider myself expert on BBL league but I have seen both teams playing. Bonn Imo is mostly a home team which has problems on the road to make good results but this time I see a chance here for them, not only by style of play but also it is statistically time that they win on road again and Giessen is on a 5 game losing streak, even when they win it is by a point or similar small advantage. All though they played some of the same opponents with very similar final results Bonn is Imo slightly better, they play Euro Champions league and played OT with Tenerife, a team that lost only by 4 pts against Barcelona and also made some wins against decent Spanish teams(Valencia, Gran Canaria). Both teams seem to have defensive problems but especially Giessen which lets most of its opponents to score 85+ points. Giessen can play this way when they have the top scorer of Bundesliga, a huge American man John Bryant(20 pt avg, 10 reb avg) which is very precise from all over the court. He doesn’t look like basketball player at all, with too much meat around the belly and huge beard someone might think he is a lumberjack but he is actually very skilful. Ok, the news is that the main guy of Giessen and in most of the games a guy that scores almost quarter of their points is having injury of Achilles tendon! I have read that he is doubtfull but again I doubt he will be back that fast and risk to worsen the injury and thus losing the whole season, it simply doesn’t go away in a few days. I believe the odds are set with expectation that Bryant will play but my prognosis is that he won’t. Also Bonn won last 4 meetings between them.
I can see 82:88 result in this game.
