The Taiwan Beer are playing the better basketball entering this contest and absolutely smoked the boots of Pauian Archiland when they met last week. However, we're not seeing a ton of blowouts in these games and it's important to note that Pauian Archiland has won three of the last five meetings against Taiwan Beer. And while Pauian Archiland is riding a three-game losing streak, it wasn't that long ago when this team won six straight and was the hottest team in the league. The Taiwan Beer can be hit or miss at times with their offensive effort and five of their last eight wins were decided by 10 or less points. This feels like too many points to lay. I'm going to take a shot with the Pauian Archiland and the free buckets.
