Crvena Zvezda

Crvena Zvezda – Khimki

Pick

Khimki +2,5 @ 1.92 7/10 WON

Under 158 @ 1.92 5/10 WON

BC Khimki

Khimki super-motivated after loss to Real Madrid. They are in must win position right after talks with club management. They lost to Real Madrid, but that’s not a big problem. Real is going to win Euroleague this year, so Khimki should concentrate on both games this week (CZ and Oly) to secure easy life in next few round and avoid pressure. They are taking this game very seriously. They did a flight to Belgrade on Sunday to prepare for this game. CZ has 3rd game in 4 days. Khimki are 4-1 ATS on the road (Last 5 games) as underdog, while CZ is 1-3 as favorite at home. I see Khimki as hidden favorite here.

Khimki 6-2 for Under on the road. Crvena Zvezda 4-2 for Under in last 6 at home. Defense should be a big factor here. My total range is 146-161 points.

Valencia – Barcelona

Pick

Under 156.5 @ 1.92 7/10 LOST

FC Barcelona

For this match Vidorreta can’t count on Antoine Diot and Guillem Vives, also both shooting guards Erick Green, Joan Sastre and forward Latavious Williams are questionable.

Barcelona can’t count on Kevin Seraphin. Others are healthy, but Barcelona is very unpredictable whole season. They have enough talent to win against anyone in Europe, but they can also might show an epic fail at any moment.

The game is crucial for both team, because the loser will be 4 or 5 wins away from 8th place, and with 12 rounds to go it is almost impossible to reach it.

I would set 152 total line here. And taking into consideration that Valencia is 7-1 at home for Under and Barca is 3-1 for Under in last 4 games on the road we should take Under here as well.

CSKA – Anadolu Efes

Free preview

Anadolu Efes

CSKA last week won easy against Milano, but that was easy job. Everyone is healthy for D.Itoudis and team should be extra motivated after loss to Zenit in VTB league.

Anadolu Efes last week has presented its new signing Tony Douglas (12 pts scored against CZ). He might be an extra-factor against CSKA defense and good sign for over. But of course all will depend on CSKA ability to score points.

It’s hard to predict CSKA rotation and motivation to win with big margin on this double week, but team got rest on Monday and should be not overloaded too much.

  • Home avg. scoring: 1.12-1.21 pts/attack
  • Away avg. scoring: 1.10-1.18 pts/attack
  • Expected pace: 146 attacks
  • Expected total range: 162-174 points

My advice to wait for Over 161.5 at in-play.
