Basket Zaragoza has won three straight games against San Pablo Burgos, including a victory in the last meeting in November of last year. San Pablo Burgos hasn’t won a game against Basket Zaragoza since May of 2018.
Basket Zaragoza has had the upper hand lately when these two teams have met and they seem to get whatever they want on the offensive end. However, San Pablo Burgos was playing the better basketball heading into the break with three straight victories and lit Sassari on fire for 92 points despite trailing the first quarter by 11 points. If San Pablo Burgos is able to find that same rhythm on the offensive end in this contest, this is a game they could win comfortably in the underdog role.
I'll take my chances with San Pablo Burgos and the free buckets.
