Comunicaciones Mercedes vs Boca Juniors Prediction, Tips & Odds – Jan. 12, 2022
Boca Juniors will finish their away tour tonight with a clash against Comunicaciones in Mercedes. Both teams are experiencing some covid infections and problems but the ones in Comunicaciones´s roster are far bigger. Since the start of the year home team has been without their two best players, American imports Jordan Adams and Brandon Peterson, who got infected during the holidays in the USA and still have not made their return to Argentina.
Without two of their best players and scorers, Comunicaciones never had a real chance in their first game of the year. Their decimated team was thrashed by Platense(86:60) indicating they will have a very tough time until their leading players are cleared to return.
Tonight it could not be more difficult against one of the main title favourites Boca Juniors. Away team also has some absences due to coronavirus but their roster depth allows them to remain competitive. Even without important pieces like Eloy Vargas and David Nesbitt, they still easily handled Union in the previous round winning comfortably 90:67.
In difference to Comunicaciones they can cover absences of a couple of starters. Home team is much more limited and will have to rely on junior players to complete their roster tonight. In addition, Comunicaciones is amidst various roster changes and also made a coaching change just before the end of the year. Team is still adjusting so facing huge adversity with two main scorers being absent, their chances are almost non-existent.
Comunicaciones Mercedes vs Boca Juniors Prediction
Unexpectedly, Boca Juniors have an excellent chance of getting an easy and routine win away from home. They looked dominant in their last win so we believe betting on them to cover the spread has value against a crippled home team.
Pick: Handicap 2 (-4.5)
