These teams met a couple of days ago and Chunghua Telecom won by 11 points. Chunghua Telecom outscored Taiyuan Textile by 15 points in the second half and outscored them in three of the four quarters overall.
Chunghua Telecom won the first meeting and outscored Taiyuan Textile in three of the four quarters, but that was a back and forth game that was competitive for the most part. Taiyuan Textile actually had a four-point lead heading into halftime. Both of these teams have been hit or miss through four games and their current form isn't something I'm running to the window to lay big chalk.
This game could go either way, especially if this meeting is anything like the last. I'll take my chances with the Taiyuan Textile and the free buckets, meaning I'm backing both underdogs on Wednesday morning in WSBL play.
