The Yulon Luxgen Dinos are playing the better basketball overall and should be favored, but it's important to note they haven't won back to back games in a while and their effort on the defensive end can be hit or miss. The Pauian Archiland have lost five straight games, but there's been some competitive losses in there and the have a history of playing the Yulon Luxgen Dinos tough. Down a game already, you're going to get the best effort from the Pauian Archiland and underdogs have been live over the last few weeks. I want the points.
