Galatasaray Medical Park - BC Donetsk

galatasary bc donetsk pick
After a fantastic debut against Tauron Liga's Trefl Sopot, Galatasaray Medical Park will host Ukraine's BC Donetsk on wednesday evening. BC Donetsk lost its first game at home against Lokomotiv Kuban and visitors will try to avoid another one consecutively.

Galatasaray started to season very well both in domestic and international scenes. Currently, they are the only undefeated team within Turkish Basketball Leauge and last week they began to Eurocup with a terrific victory against Tauran Liga's Trefl Sopot on the road. They also won all three Turkish Cup games played in preseason. So, in other word, they haven't lost any match up yet in official games. They have important names such as Milan Macvan, Henry Domercant, David Hawkins, Boniface N'dong, Jamont Gordon etc. in their rotation. No need to say that Galatasaray Medical Park is one of the favourites of Eurocup 2012-2013 season as well.

BC Donetsk is a team with experience in Eurocup. Last year, they did their way till the quarter finals but they couldn't avoid being eliminated by Lietuvos Rytas that plays in Euroleague this season. Thi year, BC Donetsk seems to underachieve a little bit. Currently, they are at the seventh spot of Ukrainian Super League with only 6 wins in a total of 12 games so far. BC Donetsk still have key players such as Vojdan Stojanovski, Ivan Radenovic and Ramel Curry from the previous year. This year, they also added ex Galatasaray and 76ers player Darius Songalia to their rotation.

In today's game, I expect another thrilling performance by Galatasaray Medical Park. They would definitelly seek to take control of the game from the first minutes of the opening quarter. The betting trend in bookies are leaned towards Galatasaray Medical Park to surpass their determined total scoring which is something around 80+ points. Since I found out that the odds are already too low, I'll pick something else instead. Galatasaray coach Ergin Ataman is known by his gravity on defensive point of view. Therefore, he'll ask his team to defend the opponent well from the first possession of BC Donetsk. Galatasaray is a team with great scoring potential, so there is no problem from offensive side. Since I expect them to defend just as well as they try scoring, I'll take a first half handicap rather than full time spread. The given handicap for the first quarter is no more than 2 possessions only.

Pick : Galatasaray Medical Park first quarter -3.5 @ 1.88

Good luck and happy betting!
