Bologna is a strong team, second in table with 32 points (the same of Treviso and Trieste who played 23 games, so 1 game more). After a 3 losing streak, they back on track with 2 wins in a row against Udine (a team with more or less the same quality and standings of Jesi, for 80-57) at home and another one, in away, after the OT, against Chieti for 64-69.
At home Bologna is very good with an overall record of 9-2 and 4-1 in last 5 games.
Jesi is in fight for take a place in last spot valid for the playoff zone and with an eye, anyway, on the relegation zone (now far 6 points). In last 5 games they are 3-2 and after 3 wins in a row they lose in last game against Fortitudo Bologna (the other team of Bologna) for 86-74.
In away they are not so strong with an overall away record of 4-7 and with 2-3 in last 5 games.
The first leg of this season ended with an away win of Bologna who won at Jesi for 79-88 and also tonight i take my shot on them.
Bologna ML @1,61 (99-88 FT)
