NLEX Road Warriors vs. Rain or Shine Elasto Painters Prediction, Tips & Odds – Sep. 23, 2022 11:45 CET
NLEX and Rain or Shine open their PBA Commissioner´s Cup campaigns at the PhilSports Arena this Friday. On the back of their recent PBA Cup run, NLEX should enter this match with a slight edge. However, with imports in the equation and NLEX´s coach switching sides and returning to his former team, we should witness a very intense and tight game.

NLEX Road Warriors Team News
NLEX didn´t have a lot of time to find a new coach after Yeng Guiao decided to leave. Just a couple of days ago they hired Frankie Lim, who was gone from the PBA for seven years.
He had less than three days to work with his new team, which just recently traded away one of its key pieces Calvin Oftana. There is no doubt this controversial trade will weaken their team, which still has solid firepower and a top import in Earl Clark.
Rain or Shine Elasto Painters Team News
After spending six years at the helm of NLEX, Yeng Guiao has returned to his old team. Between 2011 and 2016 he steered Rain or Shine to two titles and will be looking to turn them into a title contender again.
He had just a couple of weeks to familiarize himself with the team, which only has a couple of players he used to coach before. Two of them are Gabe Norwood and Beau Belga, who should carry most of the load along with the new import Steve Taylor.
NLEX Road Warriors vs. Rain or Shine Elasto Painters Prediction
The bookmakers are giving NLEX a slight advantage, but we disagree. NLEX are still a formidable force, but Rain or Shine are a completely different side when Yeng Guiao is calling the shots.
We think Rain or Shine can fight and possibly win the game, so we will back them to cover the spread.
