Crvena Zvezda – Olympiacos
Line already moved here for Crvena Zvezda after news that Lojeski (important Olympiacos players) is out for one month. I don’t like how Olympiacos playing at the moment, but they were lucky to meet opponents who were playing even worser than them (Valencia, Neptunas and Laboral).
Olympiacos is currently satisfied with their standings in the group and I doubt they will come to Belgrade with huge motivation. At this moment they need to think about balancing their game and providing minutes for returning from injury T.Darden and implementing new system after coach change.
Crvena Zvezda rolling on all fronts. Today we have to expect new Euroleague attendance record in Kombank arena, because tickets for this game were sold in 1.5 hour. But the true reason why Zvezda should win this match – is their game. Until Williams, Marjanovic, Lazic playing at such level they will continue to win at least at home.
With current rosters I see Zvezda slightly better team and at home court they should be given with -6.5 or -7.5 spread. But I decided to go with ML line here to get more advantage over the line and exclude close win risk.
Pick: Crvena Zvezda to win @ 1.69 Pinnacle
****** Player totals *******
S.Weems (CSKA) over 13.5 @ 1.85 3/10
After recovering from injury at the start of the season Sonny become a true leader of CSKA offense. While all defensive eyes are on Teodosic, Sonny takes 10-15 2FG attempts in last 5 games, add to this 2-4 shots from 3pts line and at least 2 FT. I expect him to score 12-14 points only from 2pts zone and add at least few points from 3-pts and FT line.
