The Pauian Archiland have won three straight meetings against Bank of Taiwan, but the last two meetings were decided by a combined 11 points. Three of the last four meetings between Pauian Archiland and Bank of Taiwan were decided by six or less points. The Bank of Taiwan may b experiencing a brutal losing stretch, but they've been on the wrong side of some competitive losses that could have gone either way with a bounce here or a bounce there. The Pauian Archiland have been finding ways to win games, but their defense has been shaky at times and they just got stomped on by Taiwan Beer in their last time out where they got outscored in all four quarters. Based on the history between these two sides, I'm going to take a chance with the Bank of Taiwan and the free buckets.
