Crailsheim Merlins vs Bayern Munich Preview & Betting Tips
Despite numerous departures from the team, it wasn't easy to expect at the start of the season that Crailsheim would play the playoffs at the end, but the team did not give up until the last game and closed the successful season in the BBL with a record of 24-10. Creilsheim is certainly the biggest surprise this season in the BBL, and among other things, they made some surprises this season, beating Ludwigsburg, Oldenburg, Ulm, and Bamberg.
On the other hand, Bayern Munich finished 4th in the BBL in the regular season with 24-10. Andrea Trinchieri's team had too many obligations this season, as they played on all fronts (Euroleague, German Cup, BBL), so the results were weaker in the BBL. Despite the poor closing of the BBL this season, Bayern was brilliant in the German Cup, as they won the Cup trophy 5 days ago, beating Alba Berlin in the final with 85-79.
As for the playoffs in the BBL. After winning the BBL trophy, Bayern made a great step towards placement for the playoff semifinals, as they took the lead in their series against Crailsheim (1-0), with an 86-66 victory. Interestingly, Bayern Munich has won all six away games against Crailsheim so far. Regardless of the successful season of Crailsheim, Andrea Trinchieri's team is a great team, and I think that Bayern will not leave anything to the third game but will try to finish this series in Ilshofen.
