Tip Bolts - Alaska Aces

Bolts Alaska Aces Prediction published on July 29, 2021 at 11:35 PM - modifiedat July 30, 2021 at 5:16 PM

The Meralco Bolts are third in the Philippines Cup table and take on the Alaska Aces who are in sixth position. The Bolts have won three of their four matches but are behind leaders Magnolia Hotshots (4-0) and TNT KaTropa in second who have only played two matches but won them both. Meralco's only loss so far has come against the wonderfully named Rain or Shine Elasto Painters. That was in their third match of this tournament, losing by 13 points, not what was expected when winning the first quarter by five points but the next two were lost by 18. The Bolts bounced back to form with a 91-80 win over Phoenix Fuelmasters. They won the first half by 16 points and their opponents never looked like substantially closing the gap.

Alaska Aces are 2-2 for the tournament but have lost two of their last three matches. They got off to a good start with a win over Blackwater Elite but those opponents are now bottom with all four games lost. It got tougher for the Aces as they suffered consecutive losses to current leaders the Magnolia Hotshots and then the Phoenix Fuelmasters, who recently lost to the Bolts and have only won that match so far. Their fourth match was a must win one and they got back into winning ways with a 74-48 victory over the Painters winning all four quarters. It's an important game for both teams, go for the Bolts to get the win.
