El Rama could use a feel good victory here after losing six of their last eight 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.
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, El Rama is a team that's in absolutely brutal form right now as they have major offensive issues that prevents them from competing with the better teams in this league, and they just allowed 91 points in their last effort against Costa Caribe. Bonanza played last night, but they're an explosive offensive team that usually beats shows up when playing teams against lesser competition. We've seen many times in the Torneo Carlos Ulloa Nicaraguan league that teams with a gap in talent are usually one-sided blowouts, so laying big chalk at this point doesn't scare me.
I'll back Bonanza in this spot and lay whatever number once the line is released.
