There's no match history between these two teams.
There was no line at the time this article was published and lines for Nicaraguan basketball seem to be coming out very late, so who knows when and if one will be released. With that said, Costa Caribe is playing the better basketball and should be eager for a bounce back performance after losing to Brumas Jinotega. El Rama has lost five of its last seven games and is fresh off a game against San Isidro where they got nothing going offensively. El Rama just can't put together an honest effort and now the offense has completely fallen off a cliff their last two games. It's hard to have confidence to back El Rama until they turn things around. Costa Caribe should have success in this game from the start.
Give me Costa Caribe in a comfortable victory.
