Giessen was relegated from Bundesliga last season, but after only one team from the second division decided to participate in the first tier of German basketball, Giessen got a wildcard. They did not use that chance in the best way, since they are in the relegation zone a few rounds before the end, and it seems that they will not be saved this time. They have played a few solid games lately and have managed to beat Oldenburg and Bayreuth, but still have four wins less from a place that guarantees survival in Bundesliga. It should be mentioned that they have three games less than Syntainics, but also better H2H, so in case of the same number of wins, they would be better placed in the end.
Giessen will certainly not give up until the very end and every victory is extremely valuable for them at this moment. Kendale McCollum and Nuni Omot are the two best individuals in Giessen offense, and TJ Williams and Phil Fayne had few good games in 2022. Although they will be a big outsider in this game, Giessen will do everything he can to make a surprise.

An extremely busy schedule is behind Bayern. This will be their eighth game in the last 14 days and tiredness is huge. In early March, Bayern did not play basketball for two weeks due to the large number of players infected with the coronavirus and they had to make up for it in the last two weeks. They played three games in Euroleague this week and all three away from home, so they spent a lot of time on the road. Bayern has reached the quarterfinals in Euroleague for the second year in a row and will play against Barcelona. They didn’t won title in Bundesliga last season and ambition is to do it this time. Head coach Andrea Trinchieri need to distribute playing time wisely because Bayern have had a huge number of injuries this season and that is why they rested almost all first-team players against
Oldenburg in the last round and gave a chance to some juniors. It is certain that ambition is to win this game as well, but it is clear that they will not be at 100% capacity because they played against Real in Madrid on Friday night and less than 40 hours will pass between that and this match.

Giessen is in 17th place in Bundesliga at 6-19. At home, they are at 4-9. Bayern is second with 19 wins and 7 losses, and five of the seven defeats came at road. Earlier in the season, Bayern beat Giessen in Munich 71:64 after overtime.
TJ Williams has not played for Gissen in the last few games and he is questionable. Corey Walden is injured for Bayern, but Trinchieri will probably rest some more players.
Giessen vs. Bayern Munich Prediction
Like last week against Oldenburg, Bayern will enter this match with no full capacity after a tough week in Euroleague, and Giessen could use that. They may not reach a big win, but double-digit handicap should be covered.
Pick: Giessen +10HC
