Meralco Bolts Team News
Meralco had a dramatic series with Barangay Ginebra and managed to go through after an overtime win in game 3. They are now on a high and will look to upset another title favourite but the odds are definitely not in their favour.
In this PBA window the Bolts beat the Beermen couple of weeks ago and certainly have high hopes of entering the finals. It will be tough but in case San Miguel win they should cover the spread. Meralco will have more or less a complete lineup and will rely on Newsome, Black and Maliksi as main providers.
San Miguel Beermen Team News
After an excellent regular season showing, the Beermen continued with their dominance in the playoffs. The Blackwater Bossing were no match for their offense and the mismatch they had in the paint as Bossing´s main rebounder was out.
They crushed their opponents by 123:93 and the Bolts will have a tough time stopping their attack. This game should be more competitive but the Beermen should have their veteran guard Chris Ross which will give them an extra offensive option.
Meralco Bolts vs. San Miguel Beermen Prediction
The San Miguel Beermen haven´t been at this kind of level for some time and we think it will be too much for Meralco. We are watching a much better and improved Beermen team after their recent struggles.
We think that will be enough for a routine victory so we are backing San Miguel to cover the spread.
