Turkey – Russia
Turkey had 2 quarters when they scored 17 and 13 points to poor Cot d Ivoire defense. H.Turkoglu was 0/8 from the game and whole team showed just 43% FG against african defense. The only reason why they scored 86 points was high tempo. Accodring to my own stats it was 182 possesions game (USA had 184..)
Russia is one of the slowest team in here and I am sure that during whole game we will see 20-24 seconds possesions from both teams and at least one or 2 quarters will go under 30 points.
I expekt a very low score here something like 58-65 for Russia and 66-72 for Turkey.
Pick: Under 142.5 @ 1.90 4/10 Betfair
Serbia – Germany
Germany is very disciplined team with very high front line which includes 5 men with height over 2.08m. I doubt that Serbia will be able to dominate on the boards as they did yesterday against Angola and as often happens with serbians they can understimate opponent after easy victory.
Anyway I don’t see Serbia such strong favorite in the line. I think that fair handicap should be around 5.5-6.5 points because Serbia is still without 2 important players Teodosic & Krstic while germans with full roster.
Personally I would not be suprised to see Germany winning a game.
