Today there are 7 games but lines are already killed by early-market scalpers. The most interesting in terms of betting is game in Istanbul where Ulker will seek for revenge for last season 39-points heavy loss from Barcelona.
Fenerbahce Ulker – Barcelona
Live stream: Bet365
Barcelona still without E.Lorbek and B.Oleson, while Navarro still recovering from surgery and playing far below his level. X.Pascual forced to start with Abrines and use young Todorovic to cover power forward position. Jacob Pullen still can’t find his place on the court and spent just 6 minutes last weekend against Joventud and seems that PG position is again in trouble with Huertas and Sada getting trust from coach here. There are many new face in Barcelona this season like Papanikolao, Dorsey, Lampe, Nachbar who still need time to find their place on the court.
Fenerbahce Ulker also has almost new team but they are better in every line. McCaleb, Bogdanovic, Kleiza, Bjelica, Onan is huge offensive power on perimeter and in my eyes they are better at this moment than Huertas, Abrines, Nachbar and Navarro. Under the rim Ulker has Vidmar, Karaman and Zoric who can defend and attack against Dorsey, Lampe and Tomic.
In my opinion Barcelona at this momemnt of the season is on the same level as Ulker and can’t see them almost at level in Turkey. Ulker with 14000 crowd support should be able to get their second victory and send message about their goals this season.
Another pick I like here is over 151.5. Ulker has huge offensive power and it will be hard for Barcelona to stop them under 80 poins with such young roster. On other side Ulker defense is not yet at the top level too and Barcelona should be able to score 70+ points too.
Pick: Fenerbahce to win @ 1.78 4/10 Pinnacle
