Umea BSKT vs Norrkoping Dolphins
Fri 18:34 » Basketball » Sweden, Basketligan
How would you feel playing against someone you never won? Umea is in such a situation. The Norrkoping Dolphins have 19 wins in a row since 2014 when these teams met each other for the first time in their history. To make matters even worse for the hosts, their most recent meeting has been played two months ago when the Dolphins recorded a convincing 92:68 win in Norrkoping.
Both teams can’t be satisfied with their results. The Dolphins had a better start to the season, with two wins in the opening three matches. But, they are in a series of six consecutive defeats now. On the other hand, Umea had three losses in a row at the beginning of the season. They were recording better results in the recent period. But, we can’t say they are in a much better form compared to the Dolphins, especially not after a convincing 101:65 home defeat in the previous round against Lulea.
It’s is a 50:50 match, where both teams have an equal chance of winning. But, in a situation where some team has 19 wins in a row in head to head matches, we need to give more opportunities to a team that dominates in H2H meetings. Although the odds are dropping for the hosts win, we predict the Dolphins win in this match.
