Bayern has won each of the last nine meetings against Ratiopharm Ulm, which includes a 14-point victory back in November of last year. Ratiopharm Ulm has not won a game against Bayern since December of 2016.
Ratiopharm Ulm is a respectable team that's highly skilled offensively and capable of hanging around with most teams in this league, and they're led by the brother of Goran Dragic, who has some NBA experience and is a two-time Slovenian League champion. However, Bayern Munich has won nine straight meetings against Ratiopharm Ulm and six of those nine victories were decided by double digits. When you have history that one-sided and trends that play into the line, it's usually best to follow it until things change.
Bayern Munich owns these meetings, so I'll lay the chalk.
