Aliaga Petkim - Olin Edirne

aliaga petkim olin edirne pick
Olin Edirne will be visiting Aliaga on sunday afternoon after defeating Antalya Bsb. at home last weekend. This is an important game for both sides as they strive to improve their league positions week by week. Branislav Ratkovica who started to the season with Aliaga Petkim but then waived will also play against his old team to help his new team Olin Edirne to win this game.

Olin Edirne finally managed to defeat Antalya Bsb at their own arena, after having lost 3 games in a row. Two of those victories could be acceptable as they faced Banvit and Galatasaray Medical Park;however, losing against Hacettepe University at home was a totaly disappointing result as both teams could be competing each other to avoid relegation at the end of the season. Luckily, they compensated this defeat by beating another relegation candidate with double digit victory. This win provided some fresh air to Olin Edirne. This weekend, they'll play another important game that could be decisive for their placement once the season progresses.

Aliaga Petkim started to season terribly, first being eliminated from Eurochallenge cup and later beind defeated in a row. In recent weeks, they did replace some players which we covered in our previous posts, so i won't get into much details about them. Finally, their decisions seemed to bear fruit as they managed to defeat Turk Telekom on the road 2 weeks ago. Last weekend, they lost against Anadolu Efes due to a terrible fourth quarter performance. Aliaga Petkim better not to worry about this defeat much and focus on their match against Olin Edirne instead.

The game is very likely to be played head to head, neither side extending the lead too much. Preston Shumpert in Aliaga Petkim is finally expected to play against Olin Edirne. They also have another important player to dominate in the paint, Torin Jamal Francis. Recent signing Tu Holloway could contribute more this sunday. Olin Edirne offensive sets are based on outside scoring, especially when they play on the road. Aliaga Petkim should pay attention to guard them well, if they want to win.

Personally, with the home court advantage, I expect Aliaga Petkim to win this game. This should be the game to initiate an upward trend for following weeks. The handicap isn't so high, so they could cover the spread as well.

Pick : Aliaga Petkim -3.5 @ 1.88

Good luck and happy betting!
