Valencia has won the last three meetings against MoraBanc Andorra, which includes a victory in the most recent meeting in September of last year. The last time MoraBanc Andorra beat Valencia was in May of 2018.
Neither of these teams were playing great basketball the last time we saw them, but it's safe to say that Valencia is the better team here with a more polished and effective offense. Valencia has also owned the recent h2h history against MoraBanc Andorra, which includes a 21-point beatdown in the last meeting and a 19-point victory as well. MoraBanc Andorra has had issues keeping up with above-average teams in the past and their defensive effort can really struggle to keep up at times.
I'm not thrilled about the line, but I'll go off history here and side with Valencia in a comfortable victory.
