Pick: BIG Match Handicap -1.5 (-152 @bet365)
BIG beat HAVU on both previous occasions, even though the Finnish team showed resistance. I do expect the underdogs to fight in this one, but BIG have too much experience, and they already faced the big dogs so many times this season. HAVU will not create problems, and I am backing BIG to take this on in straight maps.
