Erazem Lorbek over 11.5 points

It is no secret that Besiktas JK struggles in the paint defense. The weakest link of team is definitelly the center position. The team has many other alternatives such as Damir Markota, Vladimir Dasic, Cevher Ozer etc. for low post defense;however, there are only 2 true centers available to handle the job. Starting Slovenian center Gasper Vidmar performs defensivelly well below the euroleague standards which creates a lot of trouble for paint defense. He is also quite versatile to commit fouls often, causing him to sit on the bench longer than he needs to sit. The other center Randall Falker is an athletic player, good defender and rebounder with a lot of experience. But he only finds limited playing time because he is only eligible to play in Euroleague games. He is also little bit undersized for a center position which he usually tries to overcome with his athleticisim.

Gasper Vidmar will play against his countryman today. Erazem Lorbek averages 14:40 minutes and 10 points so far in Euroleague. He averages 8-9 field goal attempts per game. For a center position, he is also a good free throw shooter, averaging %76 percent from the line last year in Euroleague. Given Gasper Vidmar's defensive versatility, Erazem Lorbek might draw fouls very easily.

He can improve his scoring average tonight.

Pick : Erazem Lorbek over 11.5 points @ 1.85

Good Luck and Happy Betting!

  1. Lorbek didn't take even as many shots as he averaged until this game.(he attempted only 5 times 2ptsFG and one ugly 3ptsFG) He didn't come to the free throw line either. Thus, for this pick, we couldn't even hope anything :(
