Jiutai Technology vs. Yulon Luxgen Dinos Prediction, Tips & Odds – Jan. 02, 2022
One of the most successful teams in the Taiwanese Super Basketball League, Yulon Dinos, have been struggling in the last couple of years. They won their last title more than ten years ago and it seems they will have to wait even longer because they opened the new season with disappointing results. On the other hand, their opponents Jeoutai never achieved any significant results nor won a title but it seems this could be their year.
Jeoutai made a number of roster changes and as a result their performances have improved. They won their two opening matches without any major problems against Bank of Taiwan(82:70) and Pauian(81:71) but suffered a setback in the last round. Defending champions and the strongest team in the league Taiwan Beer had too much in the locker handing them their first loss of the season(77:67).
However, Jeoutai kept up for most of that game and will be hoping to convert their recent excellent form into another win. Today they will have home-court advantage and a full roster led by their sole foreign import American swingman Jalen Robinson. He has been averaging impressive numbers and has been one of the best players in the league so far.
Yulon were hopeful for a big season but judging by their opening results it will not be a promising year. It is still early days but they already suffered two unexpected and heavy defeats against Taiwan Beer(78:68) and Bank of Taiwan(83:69). They bravely held on in the season opener against the champions Taiwan Beer and lost after overtime playing without a foreign import. With the arrival of DaShaun Wiggins it seemed they would become more stable after that game. However, that did not happen because they were thrashed at home in the previous round by Bank of Taiwan(83:69).
That defeat came as a huge surprise. Not only because they brought in a new American import but also because they previously blew out Pauian(87:58) showing some encouraging signs. Morale for today´s game is definitely not very high after that last defeat. They struggled to defend their paint and they should once again today because they will still be without their starting center Ba Ban. He is one of their scoring leaders and main rebounders so his absence was immediately felt in their last two games. Without him they have no real centers who can defend Jeoutai´s much taller frontcourt and their import scorer who should take advantage of this mismatch.
Jiutai Technology vs. Yulon Luxgen Dinos Prediction
At the moment hosts are in much better form and have a huge height advantage below the rim. It will take time for Yulon to improve so without one of their best players they will have a tough time away from home. They have a very positive h2h tradition with Jeoutai but the situation is much different than before so we suggest betting on the home team.
Pick: Point Spread – Jiutai Technology +1.5
