Magnolia Hotshots Team News

After taking a prolonged 8-day break, the Magnolia Hotshots will be fresh and ready as they attempt to rebound against the Bolts. With only two games remaining on their schedule and Ginebra and Converge hot on their heels, Timplados will most probably have to take down both the Bolts and Rain or Shine in order to secure the twice-to-beat advantage.

Despite losing the heavyweight clash against the star-studded Bay Area Dragons, the Hotshots fought valiantly. The Dragons broke away in the third frame and were up by as much as 17 points, but the Hotshots simply would not go away and almost completely turned the game around.

Their fourth quarter performance from that match should serve as a morale boost as they tackle the surging Meralco Bolts.

Even though the Bolts currently sit in 9th place, they look poised to finish inside the top 8. The Meralco Bolts have had a magical turnaround with their recent 3-game winning streak and are the only team with three more games left on the schedule.

They got the ball rolling with their upset win against Bay Area and continued with two close victories over Bossing and the lifeless TNT Tropa. We were surprised to see the Bolts switching imports all of a sudden, but the arrival of KJ McDaniels acted as the main catalyst for their surprising late season surge.

Magnolia Hotshots vs. Meralco Bolts Prediction

Just by looking at the total we can notice a very low-scoring game is expected. Total Under was our initial pick, but the 180-point line simply has no value. The 5-point spread has no value either, so choosing a pick from this match was very difficult.

The Bolts are currently on a fine run, but with the exception of their commendable win against Bay Area, their other two victories came against lowly Blackwater and out-of-form Tropa. They should be able to compete until the end today, but we doubt they will able to surpass the 87-point mark against the best defense in the league.
