The Danish basketball season started last week with the Horsholm 79Ers getting off the mark at the first attempt with an emphatic 123-71 success over Stevnsgade BBK. For Svendborg Rabbits, this will be their first game of the Basketligaen season and they are favoured to make a winning start. Horsholm 79Ers finished third in the table last season and have strengthened in the summer, signing Ty Sabin, who led NCAA Division 3 Ripon college to the Midwest Conference Championship, topping the league in points scored. Sabin scored a game-high 26 points on his professional debut against Stevnsgade BBK. They also signed American rookie Matt Bonds, who averaged 21.6 points per game in his senior year at NCAA2 St Michaels, and Connor Beranek, who also played NCAA2 ball for Nebraska-Kearney.

Svendborg Rabbits have also bolstered their squad, bringing in Mike Moore. The 23-year-old American forward was voted All-Conference Carolinas 3rd Team at Mount Olive in 2016 and played last season for Italian Serie C Gold side Ste.Mar ’90 Civitavecchia. Svendborg finished fourth in the table last season, while the visiting Hosholm were a place above them. The visitors are considered the underdogs in the latest Basketligaen betting odds, as we state in our Svendborg Rabbits vs Holsholm 79Ers prediction.
It is very early days in the Basketligaen season, so taking a look at this clash is not an exact science but our best Basketligaen betting tips go for Svendborg to win at home. New players on both teams will take time to bed in and one game is not a viable sample size upon which to base a selection. Perhaps it is better to look at previous history and the Svendborg Rabbits have a remarkably good record against Horsholm 79Ers, winning in 33 of 46 previous meetings. The visitors saw their third successive win over the Rabbits, which has never happened before and therefore, the hosts, who look strong on paper in both the forward and guard positions, are rightly favoured to win, as we state in our best Basketligaen betting tips.
Defences traditionally fare better in the early season and given that Horsholm has got off to a high-scoring start, the latest Basketligaen betting odds suggest the line-makers may have overreacted, putting up a line of 158.5 total points. Svendborg Rabbits have eclipsed that line in 48.3% of the time in their home games and while they come into this game fresh, it may take a while for them to find their rhythm. Therefore, the percentage call is to take the unders, which looks a fair value with Betfair.
Svendborg Rabbits have a recent history against them in the head-to-head series but they also have home-court advantage and have won seven of the last eight meetings at The Rabbits House. They won by a double-digit margin in five of their last seven meetings at home and, outside of the playoffs, Horsholm 79Ers have just one league success at Svendborg since 2006. With that record in mind and little current form to go on, historical evidence points us to a home win with the Svendborg Rabbits maintaining their home-court dominance. Ladbrokes are out on a limb with their odds, so take them up on their generosity.
