Euroleague Top-16. Galatasaray – Zalgiris

 

micovIn the last few weeks Jawai, Aradori, Aldemir left Galatasaray, while Carter, Maric and Young were signed as their replacements. Young looks more or less good for Euroleague level, but Carter and Maric are below this level. The important point is that core of the team Arroyo-Erzeg-Micov is healthy and Galatasaray still have solid roster to compete against such teams as Zalgiris.

Zalgiris signed Will Cherry to fill the point guard position, but so far he did not show nothing special to be a real weapon in Euroleague. Also he missed some time due the injury and should not get many minutes today. In the last few days there were rumours about NBA and Euroleague clubs interest in J.Anderson, but he will play until February.

I told many times that Zalgiris has weak roster and showing bad offensive quality because of this. Statistically under 152.5 looks like a right pick for this game, but Galatasaray is playing bad defense in their recent games and it’s very difficult to set own line here.

It’s better to decide with a picks here at in-play. I will look for the opportunity to back Galatasaray in case of strong start of Zalgiris and under if first half will be high scoring and pace being low.

V.Micov (Galatasaray) over 11.5 @ 1.85 Favbet

After Aradori left team, Micov is only selection on small forward position. Carter was signed this week and I doubt that he will get minutes. Micov will play 30+ minutes and his form is hot these days. He scored 23, 12, 14, 14 and 16 points since returning from injury and I expect him to continue in this way tonight.
