Baskets Juniors Oldenburg was playing winning basketball before they were waxed by ALBA Berlin a couple of days ago, so the points are worth a look here. However, ALBA Berlin appears to be on another level at the moment with wins in seven straight games and they've won their last three games by an average of 19 points. We also have the one-sided h2h history heavily favoring Alba Berlin, and seven of their last nine victories over Baskets Juniors Oldenburg have been decided by double-digit points. It doesn't get much clearer, folks.
I'll lay the reasonable chalk with Alba Berlin.
