Besiktas - Hacettepe University

besiktas hacettepe university pick
Euroleague contester Besiktas and Turkish league's mediocre team Hacettepe University will face in each other for the closedown match up of match day 7 in monday evening. Besiktas made it their way to Top 16 just 2 days ago by defeating Brose Baskets with a decent come back achieved in the second half of the game. Hacettepe University at home lost an important game against Mersin Bsb. last week and they will look for a surprise to compensate it by defeating Besiktas on the road.

First time Euroleague participant Besiktas is having a fantastic season in european scene so far. There are still 3 games to be played (2 of them at home);however, they already qualified to the top 16 by achieving 4 victories in 7 games. Two victories that Besiktas obtained on the road helped them guarantee to qualify to the next stage earlier than expected. It is a remarkable success considering this is the first time Besiktas participates in Euroleague. In domestic league, on the other hand, things aren't as pleasant as it should be because the team already suffered 3 defeats, all handed in by Besiktas' competitors Banvit, Fenerbahce Ulker and Pinar Karsiyaka. Since they guarantee qualification, they can now pay more attention to improve their record in the domestic league.

Hacettepe University is one of those teams who avoid relegation. In fact, they were quite successful against the teams they are supposed to compete with. They managed to defeat Erdemir and Olin Edirne, but losing to Mersin Bsb. at home probably wasn't what they could tolerate. This monday, Hacettepe University will face a serious opponent lik e Besiktas for the first time this season. This game will give us a clear projection of where they could end at the end of the season.

Intuitively, it is pretty hard to make side picking. Besiktas is relaxed and probably still celebrating after qualification to the next round of Euroleague, so it is a question mark how much they do concentrate for this match up. Hacettepe University should have analyzed well their opponent to exploit their weak sides. I feel Besiktas would n't mind having a victory with a single point margin. Hacettepe University is a team that prefers to utilize half court offense rather than run&gun tempo. So, they should probably be fine with a low scoring game. Statistics indicate that in none of Hacettepe University's 6 previous league games 149 points were scored. Besiktas had 2 games where this given total was surpassed but Besiktas lost both match ups and those games were played against Fenerbahce and Pinar Karsiyaka. So, I think this game is close to end with a total score lower than 149 points. One quick note; Turkish cup game played on 6th of October between Besiktas and Hacettepe University ended 67-62 with Besiktas win.

Pick: Under 149 @ 1.88

Good luck and happy betting!
