pocius copy copyToday we can expect great basketball evening with 4 games starting one after another. I see 3 good opportunities for euroleague bets tonight.

Fenerbahce Ulker – Olympiacos

At this moment I can’t see Olympiacos at the same level as Ulker to set them just 3.5 points underdogs in Turkey. Ulker activated Savaz before this game, Sekulic also in, P.Jackson should be included into roster too. Don’t forget about improved Kleiza, McCalebb, Bogdanovic and Preldzic. Seems that Obradovic system went all adaptation process inside this team and they are again ready to achieving big goals in Euroleague. And first step is to win tonight and try to overcome 13 points deficit from 1st round loss.

Olympiacos will have Moor, but Shermadini is not yet ready. Olympiacos has good talented team but in my opinion they simply weaker than Ulker if we talk about direct comparison. Big factor for Olympiacos is form of Spanoulis and so far he is struggling with it. But even with him being 100% I am not sure about Olympiacos chances to win here.

Olympiacos can accept 12 points loss in Istanbul and this is a key factor here, because Ulker is in a must win situation.

Pick: Fenerbahce (-3.5) @ 1.935 3/10 Pinnacle

Bayern Munich – Zalgiris

Zalgiris goes to Germany for a win. Maybe some of you will laugh about that, but don’t forget how Zalgiris played against Brose Baskets who are close to Munich in terms of roster strength.

This is a 4th game in 7 days for Munich and their goal here just to win. They are good team, no doubts about that but they are stronger than Lokomotiv Kuban which experienced big problems when they played against Zalgiris at home.

I agree with Bayern favorite role here but 9 points handicap has nothing common with real level of german and lithuanian players. Delaney is on the same level as Dentmon, Javtokas is good form, Pocius, Jankunas are the same level as most of Bayern starters. For me fair line should be set around 5-6 points, but I would not be surprised with scenario where Zalgiris fights until the end for victory.

Pick: Zalgiris +9 @ 1.92 5/10 Pinnacle

Real Madrid – Partizan

Partizan always trying to be their best when they play against big teams. They want to show their skills, increase future contract price and this is usually works quite well for Partizan. This time Partizan will their new addition in S.Pavlovic face and I am sure that they will fight for honorable result in Madrid.

Real is missing Caroll and Draper, but it doesn’t make them weaker team. They are still full of stars who can play 40 minutes changing each other and win against anyone.

I see good chances for Partizan to score 65+ points and stop Real offense under 92 points. Good situation for 25.5 points which can’t be beaten in such range.

Pick: Partizan +25.5 @ 1.91 4/10 Pinnacle
