Spread: Murcia -6.5
Murcia have a 0-2 record so far this season and are currently tied with Breogan in the second to last place of the league table. They have back-to-back losses and in their last game they lost at home against Valencia with a 68-81 score. They are led in scoring by Ovie Soko with 15.5 ppg, adding a team high 5.5 boards per game. He is followed by Milton Doyle with 13 ppg, 4 boards and a team high 4.5 dimes per game, while Askia Booker adds 12.5 ppg.
Burgos have a 1-2 record so far this season and are currently tied with four more teams in the 11th place of the league table. In their last game they lost at home against Zaragoza with a 79-93 score. They are led in scoring by Vlatko Cancar with 13 ppg, adding a team high 5.3 boards per game. He is followed by Viacheslav Kravtsov with 10.7 ppg and 4.7 boards per game, while Bruno Fitipaldo adds 9.7 ppg and a team high 6.7 dimes per game.
In their two meetings last season each team won at home (Murcia by 3 points and Burgos by 3 as well). Murcia have a 0-1 home record so far this season, while Burgos are 0-1 on the road. Burgos are better offensively, scoring 80.7 ppg to Murcia’s third-worse of 72, while Murcia are better defensively, allowing 79.5 ppg to Burgos’ third-worse of 87.7. Murcia have a better field goal percentage (47.7% to 45.2%), while Burgos have a better 3-point percentage (34.7% to 30.8%). Burgos are better in dimes made (19.7 to 14.5), in boards grabbed (28.7 to 26.5) and in turnovers committed (10.7 to 13.5). Murcia have been extremely ineffective this season and while Vegas odds give them a -6.5 spread, don’t expect them to beat the odds as Burgos will force a closer game than that.
