Baskonia has won each of the last five meetings against Tenerife, which includes a 17-point victory in the last match in March of this year. The last time Tenerife beat Baskonia was in December of 2018.
Baskonia is playing some highly impressive basketball at the moment and picked up right where they left off with a 23-point victory over Bilbao in its last contest. Tenerife has had issues finding consistent offense and is fresh off a 13-point loss at the hands of Unicaja. Tenerife is averaging just 65.6 points per game during their three-game losing streak and that's simply not good enough to compete with most teams in this league. There's also the one-sided history that favors Baskonia, as they've won five straight games against Tenerife and three of those victories were decided by double-digit points.
I'll lay the chalk with Baskonia in this contest.
