The Line: Bonanza +1.5 -- Over/Under: 148
Juigalpa and Bonanza meet Thursday night in Torneo Carlos Ulloa Nicaraguan basketball action.
Juigalpa could use a feel good victory here after losing three of their last four games. Juigalpa is averaging 77 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 80.5 points on 47.9 percent shooting. Walter Diaz is averaging 18.8 points and 5.8 rebounds while Ricardo Diaz is averaging 3.3 assists and 1.4 steals. Stanling Lopez is averaging 0.2 blocks and Henry Rocha is averaging 2.1 turnovers. Juigalpa is shooting 28.9 percent from beyond the arc and 52 percent from the free throw line. Juigalpa is allowing 32.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.8 rebounds per game.
Bonanza look for another victory after splitting their last four games. Bonanza is averaging 70.4 points on 51 percent shooting and allowing 69.7 points on 52.9 percent shooting. Norvin Mairena is averaging 15.5 points, 1.1 steals and 5.2 rebounds while Aniel Hernandez is averaging 2.1 assists and 2.5 turnovers. William Talavera is averaging 0.3 blocks per game. Bonanza is shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 57.5 percent from the free throw line. Bonanza is allowing 31 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.1 rebounds per game.
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, Bonanza is playing the better basketball at the moment and is a team that shoots a much higher percentage from the field. Juigalpa has not only lost three of its last four games, but it's a team that's had serious issues scoring the basketball during this stretch. In fact, Juigalpa is averaging just 57.7 points in its last four games and that's simply not good enough to get it done in this league against some of the better teams.
So, while there was no line at the time this article was published, I'm going to back Bonanza to get the job done in this contest.
