easyCredit Basketball Bundesliga game day 18 preview. Ratiopharm Ulm have the opportunity to continue their unbeaten start to the season when they host Science City Jena. As the only club to beat champions Brose Bamberg, they currently top the easyCredit BBL - a competition that Tipbet is Official Betting and Premium Sponsor of.

The two leading sides, of course, faced each other in last season’s play-off final with Brose winning 3-0 in a best of five matches. Both are almost certain to reach the play-offs once more by finishing in the top eight, and it will be intriguing to see which side wins the trophy in the early summer.

Despite Ratiopharm’s strong start, they are still third favourites to win the competition, behind Bamberg (1.30) and Bayern Munich (5.50). At 8.25 they should clearly not be ruled out, but their ability to go all the way is questionable.

On Sunday they face Science City Jena and are big favourites to make it 17 wins on the bounce. Given their points difference (197 to Jena’s -95), a straightforward victory is expected, with odds of 1.03. The visitors can be backed at 9.25, but their form does not make this outcome seem likely.

One side that won’t be involved in any play-off process is Phoenix Hagen, who were disqualified from the BBL after having their licensing revoked. All results including them are now obsolete, and the club will play their basketball in the Pro A – Germany’s second tier – from next season. For other clubs, this means that just one of them will suffer relegation from the BBL this season.

In one of the other standout fixtures this weekend, Brose travel to Telekom Baskets Bonn. In sixth, Bonn will be looking for some consistency to their results having won nine and lost seven times. Bamberg, though, are unsurprisingly big favourites at 1.18 to keep the pressure on Ulm. Baskets (4.20) will have a tough time getting a win, though they must at least ensure that their points difference (currently 2) does not get hit too badly.

At the bottom of the easyCredit Basketball Bundesliga, Rasta Vechta host Alba Berlin in what is an important game for both teams. 17th, the home team have won just once and are lagging behind their nearest rivals, currently Braunschweig, with relegation looking more likely by each game day. The club were only promoted to the top tier after coming second in the Pro A last season.

They are 3.75 to get a second victory, though overtime (9.25) is rated as very unlikely. Berlin, at 1.22, are expected to win comfortably as they aim to solidify a play-off berth. Tipbet is the ideal place to bet on the easyCredit BBl, with odds available for all matches:
