Hapoel Beer Sheva has won five of the last seven meetings against Gilboa Galil, but those two losses have come in the last two contests. Gilboa Galil won the last match in February by four points.
Both of these teams are in great form, so you can make a case for either side, especially the free points. However, Gilboa Galil has been far more sharper since the return and their last two victories were won by double digits. Hapoel Beer Sheva has had offensive issues at times and its led to their last three wins being decided by an average of three points. Gilboa Galil has also won the last two meetings against Hapoel Beer Sheva, and those games were decided by an average of 15.5 points.
I'll ride the hot hand and lay the chalk with Gilboa Galil.
