Fubon Guardians vs. Rakuten Monkeys Odds, Prediction, and Betting Pick – April 29th, Taiwan CPBL
The Taiwan CPBL continues this week, and it’ll be interesting to see if the Rakuten Monkeys can recover from the beating it took last week. The Uni Lions won twice against the previously undefeated leader and exposed its vulnerabilities.
This week, the top team in the league plays Fubon Guardians twice. The first match finished with a 3-0 victory for the favorite, but it was close for most of the time.
My Fubon Guardians vs. Rakuten Monkeys betting preview is focused on the second clash between the teams that will take place on Wednesday. I explore their last meeting, as well as their overall performance in the CPBL so far.

Fubon Guardians vs. Rakuten Monkeys Analysis
Last week, the Rakuten Monkeys were disgraced twice, and the core of the issue was that the team allowed countless runs against the Uni Lions. Okay, 20 is not countless, but it’s too much over the course of two games.
It seems that the leaders have worked on the problem, and no runs were conceded against Fubon Guardians in the first clash of the week. Rakuten Monkeys patiently held the opponent and struck late in the game to win.
I expect a similar strategy this time around, and I don’t think that Fubon Guardians can do too much to stop the opposition. The wounds from last week still hurt, and Rakuten Monkeys should be at their best.
Fubon Guardians vs. Rakuten Monkeys Prediction and Pick
I was tempted to go for the under 9.5 runs for my pick here, but I’m not sure the game will be that tight. Instead, I prefer to back Rakuten Monkeys to cover the handicap of 2 runs. This is the better team, and it will be hungry here, so the price of -134 is good enough for me.
Rakuten Monkeys (-2)-134
