Cathay Life at Chunghua Telecom

WSBL Basketball: Saturday, May 16, 2020 at 7:00 am

The Line: Chunghua Telecom +35 -- Over/Under:

Cathay Life and Chunghua Telecom meet Saturday morning in Taiwan WSBL basketball action. 

Cathay Life look for another victory to build on their 6-0 start to the season. Cathay Life is averaging 85 points on 49.3 percent shooting. Wei-An Chen is averaging 17.7 points and 6.6 rebounds while Yu-Ting Lin is averaging 15.3 points and 7.7 rebounds. Ling-Chuan Huang is the third double-digit scorer and Yi-Xiu Zheng is grabbing 6.1 rebounds. Cathay Life is shooting 33.4 percent from beyond the arc and 72.8 percent from the free throw line. Cathay Life is allowing 26.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 28.5 rebounds per game.  

Chunghua Telecom could use a feel good victory here to snap a three-game losing streak. Chunghua Telecom is averaging 70.9 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Hsiang-Ting Huang is averaging 13.6 points and 9.6 rebounds while Qi Wen is averaging 12.4 points and 2.3 rebounds. Zi-Yin Pan is grabbing 3.5 rebounds and Qian-Hui Xu is dishing 3.7 assists. Chunghua Telecom is shooting 31.2 percent from beyond the arc and 76.8 percent from the free throw line. Chunghua Telecom is allowing 26.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 39.1 rebounds per game.

Cathay Life has won the last two meetings against Chunghua Telecom, which includes a 27-point victory last week. The two wins were decided by an average of 22.5 points.

Cathay Life has been the best team in this league by a wide margin and there's simply no reason to bet against them. Cathay Life is not only undefeated, but they're winning in blowout fashion each night and that includes a recent win over Taiyuan where they doubled them up in a 114-58 victory. Stepping in front of Cathay Life right now makes zero sense. Chunghua Telecom is ice cold right now and is averaging just 63.3 points during their three-game losing streak. That's not good when going up against Cathay Life, a team that's had no trouble in the past two meetings against them. 

Give me Cathay Life in a victory and I'll take whatever the line is.
