Instituto de Cordoba vs. Hispano Americano Prediction, Tips & Odds – Mar. 16, 2022
Argentine LNB regular season continues this Wednesday with two new games on the schedule. In one of them one of the title contenders Instituto takes on revived Hispano Americano side which has started winning after a major overhaul of their team in the middle of the season. The home team is in good form but we feel the spread for this game is simply too high, especially when we take into consideration the new reinforcements the away side has brought in.
Hispano currently sits at the bottom of the table inside the relegation zone so their goal in the final 10 rounds is clear. As a desperate attempt to survive they brought in three new American imports Brandon Moss, Deionte Simmons, and Michael Smith who have been making a difference for them. With their help, they achieved some key wins recently including a huge home win over title favourites Regatas(87:73) and Boca Juniors(100:82).
Their offense seems unstoppable at the moment so with Instituto´s poor defense their chances are solid tonight; winning however seems a bit too hard. They did win all of their recent games at home and are much worse away from home but with this renewed roster they still haven´t played a game away from home so it will be very interesting to see how they will handle the very powerful home side.

They will have a complete roster while Instituto will not as injuries have really been eating into their team this season. Very important starter Nico Romano will be out while Mateo Chiarini just returned from a very tough injury and a long recovery. However, they should still be regarded as convincing favourites, although not as high as the spread given for the game.
Lately, their form has been very good. They only lost the big games against Boca Juniors(73:97) and Gimnasia(81:89) winning their last seven out of ten games from the start of February. They met with Hispano away from home at the very end of January and won routinely by 15 points(88:73) but Hispano were still with only one new import player. Their roster has received a major boost so we think they will stay competitive and possibly even challenge Instituto as every game matters.
Instituto de Cordoba vs. Hispano Americano Prediction
Away team is trying to escape the relegation zone. They need every point they can get so against a top team we think the difference is not over 15 points as the spread suggests. Their team is much stronger compared to the first half of the season so the difference is certainly a couple of points lower.
Pick: Handicap Hispano Americano (+16.5)
