The Uni Lions (15-23) and the Fubon Guardians (15-18) will meet on Friday, June 12th for a 1st Stage regular-season matchup in the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL). This will be a three-game series between the bottom two teams in the CPBL.
The Uni Lions are coming off a big-time upset and spoiler yet again, as the Uni Lions defeated the Rakuten Monkeys for the second time in a item. This time, the final score was 11-2, an absolute demolition of the league’s second-best team. Yes, Rakuten with that loss and a Chinatrust win has now moved back into normality into second place in the CPBL, something not many people thought was possible.
The Fubon Guardians took a tough, bitter loss to the Chinatrust Brothers on Thursday, 4-3. This was a game that Fubon was winning early, and their lead stretched until late in the game. In the seventh inning, Chinatrust was able to tie the game up at three, only to take the go-ahead and eventual game-winning lead in the bottom of the eighth. Another blown lead for Fubon gives them their 18th loss of the season, as they remained tied with Uni with the fewest wins in the CPBL. Fubon still has a 2.5 game lead on Uni since the Lions have five more losses than Fubon.

UPDATE: The betting lines have now been released, and the Fubon Guardians open as the favorites with a -150 price on the Win-Line. Uni opens as the underdogs with a +120 price.
I like Fubon in this matchup, as although Uni was able to defeat Rakuten in back-to-back games, I trust Fubon a lot more when it comes to consistent play. Fubon’s pitching staff could arguably be the best in the league, and I think they hold Uni for a majority of this game. I will take the Fubon Guardians on the Win-Line at -150.
