El Rama at San Isidro
Nicaraguan Basketball: Saturday, May 2, 2020 at 8:00 pm
The Line: El Rama +15.5 -- Over/Under: 147
El Rama and San Isidro meet Saturday night in Torneo Carlos Ulloa Nicaraguan basketball action.
El Rama could use a feel good victory here after losing seven of their last 10 games. El Rama is averaging 76.1 points on 48.2 percent shooting and allowing 89.6 points on 54.7 percent shooting. Morsby Wright is averaging 21 points, 1.9 steals and 10.1 rebounds while Satoshi Williams is averaging 3.1 assists and 0.9 blocks. Greivin Vargas is averaging 4.3 turnovers. El Rama is shooting 25.4 percent from beyond the arc and 53.6 percent from the free throw line. El Rama is allowing 31.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38 rebounds per game.
San Isidro look to keep the ball rolling after winning 10 of their last 11 games. San Isidro is averaging 78.9 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 60.3 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Francisco Garth is averaging 13.4 points, 2.6 steals, 0.7 blocks, two turnovers and 8.5 rebounds while Romario Ponce is averaging 3.8 assists. San Isidro is shooting 31.4 percent from beyond the arc and 55.7 percent from the free throw line. San Isidro is allowing 28.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 39.8 rebounds per game.
There's no match history between these two teams.
El Rama is not in good form to put it lightly and they have a defense that can get torched time and time again. San Isidro have won 10 of their last 11 games and are usually feisty on the defensive side where they hold teams under 70 points on a regular basis. It almost feels like these teams are heading in opposite directions and there's good reason why the spread is what it is. El Rama simply isn't playing good basketball and just had trouble finding consistent offense against Nicaragua U16, which is a bad sign moving forward. There's not much of a case to be made for El Rama other than the line is quite large.
While the line is rather thick, I'll stay true to the form of both teams and lay the thick number with San Isidro.
