Panathinaikos without K.Gabriel and M.Lojeski, but new signings M.James and Payne travelled to Russia and will be available for X.Pasqual. Khimki has no roster updates.
With 7 rounds to go both teams looks safe in terms of promoting to playoffs, but both might think about Top-4 position, which secure home court advantage in playoffs. PAO chances to keep its current position looks better, but Real at 5th position is dangerous opponent. PAO should not take easy such games as this one, if they want to step into playoffs with home court support.
I don’t have much trust to Khimki at home and PAO on the road. Both are weak ATS teams and until any of them gets clear favorite status it’s better to skip handicap betting. But total market looks interesting. In Greece team played slow basketball and I expect slow-to-average pace today too. I see it as 74:70 at FT and here are the in-depth stats:
Home avg. scoring: 1.02-1.09 pts/attack
Away avg. scoring: 1.03-1.11 pts/attack
Expected pace: 140 attacks
Expected total range: 144-154 points
Khimki 6-1 for Under in last 7 home games
Panathinaikos 5-2 for Under in last 7 away games
Anadolu Efes – Zalgiris
Valencia – CSKA Moscow
Barcelona – Real Madrid
