Bolts vs San Miguel Beermen Prediction

 by Joseph |

The semi-finals of the 2022 PBA Philippine Cup sees title favorites San Miguel Beermen looking to take a 3-2 series lead against the Meralco Bolts in game five of this best of seven series. The Beermen, who finished the regular season with a league best 9-2 record, will be looking to exact some revenge against their opponents after suffering defeat at the hands of the Bolts in the 2022 Governor’s Cup quarter-final. The Bolts finished 7-4 in the regular season and got past defending Governor’s Cup champions Barangay in the quarter-finals to make it to this stage. This is a crucial game for both teams, as the winner would be just a single win away from advancing to the finals.

Form Analysis

The Beermen have been the most exciting team to watch in this tournament with the offensive firepower at their disposal. San Miguel has managed to eclipse the 120 points scored mark an incredible three times in their 16 games played, one of which came against the Bolts in a 121-97 blowout in the first game of this series. Meralco has managed to beat San Miguel on three occasions this season, although one was a narrow three margin of victory while the Beermen got both of their wins by double digits.

Squad analysis

The focal point of the Beermen is of course the six-time MVP June Mar Fajardo who has been back at his best this season, pouring in 17.9 points per game on a ridiculously efficient 63% shooting as well as pulling down a league high 13.2 rebounds per game. However, his running mate shooting guard CJ Perez has been just as impactful. Perez leads the Beermen in scoring at 18.3 points per game and has shown off the versatility in his game, grabbing 6.9 rebounds, dishing out 5.5 assists and making himself a nuisance on the defensive end with 2.6 steals per game. The two are the current frontrunners for the Best Player of the Conference award.

Our prediction

We’re going to back the San Miguel Beermen to get the win and cover the -5 point spread. The Beermen are the team to beat in this tournament and for good reason. The record 27-time PBA champions have an extraordinarily balanced starting five, with the inside dominance of PBA legend June Mar Furjado complemented by the excellent outside scoring of CJ Perez and Jericho Cruz. The Philippine Cup is unique from the other PBA competitions in that teams aren’t allowed to register foreign players to take part. With one of the best Filipino players to ever lace them up in Fajardo, San Miguel have a huge advantage in this kind of format.

While the Beermen have the best offense in the league, they have been vulnerable on the defensive end at times and rank only 9th out of 12 in terms of points allowed.
