The Yulon Luxgen Dinos absolutely dominated game five of this series, which included outscoring Taiwan Beer by 21 points between the second and third quarters. The Yulon Luxgen Dinos have been underdogs in every game of this series and is leading 3-2 with a chance to close things out here. However, right when we've been ready to write out Taiwan Beer and say the Yulon Luxgen Dinos have looked like the better team, there's a complete shift in this series. We saw it after the Yulon Luxgen Dinos took a commanding 2-0 series lead and built on the momentum they had against Pauian. I'm not ready to count out Taiwan Beer just yet.
I'm going to predict a game seven and side with Taiwan Beer and the reasonable chalk.
