MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg is 4-2-1 in the last seven meetings against Ratiopharm Ulm and hasn’t lost each of the last three meetings. The last time Ratiopharm Ulm won a game against MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg was April of 2019.
MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg should be the favorite here based on the recent history against Ratiopharm Ulm and the fact it was the better team for much of the last meeting and was able to find another gear in the fourth quarter to force a draw. However, Ratiopharm Ulm has played the better basketball overall, especially in the last few games where they've shown to be rather explosive on the offensive end. Ratiopharm Ulm should have a bitter taste in its mouth after blowing the first meeting and I expect them to actually finish this time.
Give me Ratiopharm Ulm in this toss up.
