The Pauian Archiland were more competitive in the second game, but they've now lost five of the last seven meetings against the Yulon Luxgen Dinos and six straight games overall. The Yulon Luxgen Dinos have scored 91 or more points in four of the last five meetings against Pauian Archiland and always seem to have a big quarter where they take control of the game. The Pauian Archiland just can't sustain their level of play for four quarters, and while we've made some money with them over these few weeks, it's risky getting behind them with a cheap line. The Yulon Luxgen Dinos are the better team that's playing the better basketball, and they have all the momentum on their side. I need more points to get behind Pauian Archiland. Give me the reasonable chalk with the Yulon Luxgen Dinos.
