All playoffs pairs are set. Tonight games have no impact on standings and 100% friendly. I hate betting such games without special information/motivation so today no bets. I would like to share with my quick thoughts about games.
Cedevita – Crvena Zvezda
I was thinking about backing Cedevita here, because they might be motivated for revenge (Crvena kicked them from ABA league). But they have 4 games in 8 days in Croatia + Zagreb derby next week. Not sure how seriously they will take this match in Euroleague. Crvena without Q.Miller due the injury. Odds are close to fair, so any way it’s hard to find value in hosts.
Unicaja – Fenerbahce
I think that value is on Fenerbahce side here, but they played on Monday and Wednesday in TBL. After this game they will have time to prepare for Euroleague playoffs. As for me normal line is -3.5 for Fenerbahce, but we already saw them playing without motivation in Zagreb. Malaga at home can fight for the victory.. But it all will depend on Ulker motivation. Only in-play..
Value on total exists.. but it’s not good idea to take under in friendly match as this one.
Darussafaka – Lokomotiv
Lokomotiv was taking this match very seriuosly. They were not looking well in their last games against Unics and Minsk. Team is very tired and should think about recovery, if they want to achieve something in playoffs. Darusaffaka is definetely not a favorite here, but if Loko will continue playing without desire – everything might happen here. Odds set ok, but only for motivated Loko.
Olympiacos – CSKA
Olympiacos without Printezis tonight. CSKA in full roster, but they were not looking well in their last games. Sure Olympiacos will try to win at home their last match in Euroleague, but odds are poor. CSKA in normal situation should get favorite status here. I have no desire to take something of here.
