Xinjiang Flying Tigers VS Tianjin Pioneers Prediction, Picks, Odds, News, H2H 5/1/24
Urumqi, China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. 3rd Apr, 2023. Shi Deshuai (L) of Tianjin Pioneers controls the ball during the 41st round match between Xinjiang Flying Tigers and Tianjin Pioneers at 2022-2023 season

The CBA Playoffs list of 12 teams is complete after Nanjing Tongxi and Tianjin Pioneers lost in the last games. The top four teams have already been decided, but the Flying Tigers are still aiming to keep the 2nd seed, giving them the home-court advantage in the potential semi-finals against Zhejiang Chouzhou. Meanwhile, Tianjin Pioneers, who are out of the playoffs race, want to end their four-game losing streak in head-to-head games against one of the primary title contenders, Flying Tigers.

The home team is heavily favored by bookmakers, with odds of only 1.08, while the point spread is +/- 14.5 points. Although we believe in the Flying Tigers’ ability to win, we are hesitant to take that bet due to the large point spread. Xinjiang might opt to rest some players in the later stages of the game if they secure a comfortable lead, which could ruin the bet. Instead, we find the odds of 1.87 on over 215.5 points bet to be more appealing. Some of the largest bookies in the world are lowering odds on this type of bet to as low as 1.68, so we believe this to be a high-value bet.

XINJIANG FLYING TIGERS VS TIANJIN PIONEERS PREDICTION

  • Selection: Over 215.5 points
  • Odds: 1.87
  • Bookmaker: bet365
  • Stake: 3/10

The Flying Tigers recently suffered two losses against Shanghai (115:93) and Liaoning (96:85), which led to doubts among many basketball experts about their chances of winning the title. However, these two losses happened away from home, and they have shown to be a much stronger team at Hongshan Arena, where they hold a 22-2 win/loss record compared to their 17-9 record away from home. Despite these setbacks, Xinjiang bounced back strongly, winning against Jilin and scoring a season-high 147 points. Their home form is excellent, having won nine games in a row while averaging 122 points per game during that stretch. Therefore, we expect another high-scoring game from the home team.

Tianjin Pioneers are in poor form, winning only once in the last seven games. However, interestingly, they rarely score fewer than 100 points, even in losses. During that seven-game stretch, Pioneers scored only twice under 100, against Guangzhou (99) and Liaoning (96).

Away from home, we can see a similar pattern of playing high-scoring matches recently, as they were over 215.5 points in four of the last five games!
