Why would the Ghost Ballers win?
The Ghost Bowlers have been performing this season and have been scoring like a team firing on all cylinders. He showed a lot of resilience in his last win against the Aliens and was able to make consecutive big plays. When they are playing with a lot of energy, they tend to outperform teams in the rebounding departments and score tons of second chance points.
To win the game, the Ghost Bowlers must name their size and throw the ball in. They will be a huge team defensively and should try to destroy the paint and force the Hogs to shoot the ball. Although they may not be as quick, Ghost ballers must focus on their defensive switches and stick to their man in half-court defense.
Why would Ball Hog win?
The Ball Hogs aren’t the biggest team in the league, but they overwhelm teams with their frenetic pace. They like to get the ball back in a hurry and will try to make quick passes once the ball is cleared. They are very sneaky on the defensive end and will push their hands into the passing lanes. From there, the ball hogs do a good job of sharing the rock and finding the open man.
Jody Meeks and Leandro Barbosa will need to carry this team today if they want to win as the underdogs. The pair has tremendous pace and could be the fastest pair of players in the league. With their ball movement, ball hogs must tire out the ghost bowlers by driving them to the hoop and trying to commit fouls.
Final Ghost Ballers-Ball Hogs Predictions & Picks
The Ball Hogs are a tough matchup for any team this year because of their great speed in their point guard game. Otherwise he doesn’t get much support and once teams start getting into their shooting rhythm, it could prove costly. For this prediction, we’ll go with the Ghost Bowlers as their dominance continues through week three.
