Olimpia vs. Aguada Prediction, Tips & Odds – Mar. 29, 2022
Today we decided to introduce you to a new Latin basketball league after our preview and win from Chile last night. We are in Uruguay in Liga Uruguaya or LUB which is the premiere basketball tier in that country. It is one of the strongest leagues in the continent but still lacks the quality of two of the top leagues – Argentine Liga Nacional and Brazilian NBB. Nevertheless, the league is fully professional and has a high standard so it often brings some exciting and interesting matches.
With only two rounds remaining in the regular season, both eighth-placed Olimpia and sixth-placed Aguada have already secured their spot in the round of 16 of the playoffs. They can´t move significantly from their current positions but they can still secure a more favourable opposition in the opening round of the playoffs with a strong finish.
Olimpia have had an unstable season but in the end managed to finish mid-table where they more or less belong. Despite a mediocre regular season, they can definitely shake things up in the playoffs and perhaps even stun some of the title favourites. Their home-court advantage is their main asset and will play an important role tonight as they continue to develop chemistry between their domestic core and newly added American imports.

In the last round they had two new Americans debut, Brian Fitzpatrick and Isaac Hamilton, who came in from war-torn Ukraine as replacements for their foreigners Rick Jackson and Charlie Marquardt. They started making moves in their roster even prior to last round as in the middle February they signed American Brandon Nazione who has taken over as the team´s top scorer and has been fantastic so far.
With all the player turnover and injuries they were dealing with no wonder they didn´t have a stronger season. All in all, with everything they´ve been going through they have to be more than content with their current position and look to build off of it with their newest reinforcements.
👋🏼 ¡Bienvenido, José Ascanio!
✔️ El ala-pívot venezolano llega a nuestro club como reemplazo temporal de Marcos Mata.

On the other hand, Aguada is currently in a period of huge changes. Not too long ago they brought in a new coach Nicolas Casalanguida who has been given a very demanding task of creating a competitive title-contending team. They suffered two huge blows recently after their leaders and key starters Mathias Calfani and Marcos Mata got injured. They will be out at least until the end of the regular season so the club had to react and brought in a temporary replacement Jose Ascanio from Venezuela.
Just like Olimpia they also made some import changes recently bringing in Avry Holmes who came to replace one of their leading scorers American Tyreek Duren. With a new coach and with all of these new faces and huge absences they have, we think they will sacrifice these two meaningless remaining games because they unexpectedly have to reorganize their team at the very end of the regular season.
Olimpia vs Aguada Prediction
Olimpia is very strong at home and has a much longer rotation at the moment. They won´t need as much time as Aguada to adjust with their new imports which they´ve already proven in the last round with a blowout win over Capitol(92:71). Aguada will need some time to figure things out with their new coach whose team will be significantly shorthanded for this game so we don´t understand how can the home team be considered as underdogs in this game.
Pick: Handicap Atletico Olimpia (+5.5)
