Olin Edirne - Antalya BSB

olin edirne antalya basketball pick
Olin Edirne will host Antalya Bsb., one of the biggest relegation candidates this season. The hosts have hard time, achieving another victory as they've lost the last 3 games in a row. Antalya Bsb. could be just the right opponent to obtain their second winning in the 5th match day.

Olin Edirne started to the season with sponsor problems. Until very last minute, it wasn't certain whether or not Olin would provide the financial resources to Edirne's team. The lately confirmed resources caused Olin Edirne not to establish a competitive team during the offseason. They achieved their only victory about a month ago and since then they have hard time to find proper team chemistry to add another winning to their league record. In the past 2 years, Olin, especially in the home games, adopted a playing style where they preferred to control match tempo with emphasis on the defence. With such approach, they've ended up with some low scoring games where they held also their opponents in low point figures. However,especially in the last two games, Olin Edirne is far from that successfully executed mentality. They allowed their opponents 81 points per game which is terrible figure to win a game.

Financially speaking, Antalya Bsb. is the weakest team in Turkish Basketball League. In order to visualize his team's financial problems, coach Altar Tunckol referred to the salary of Anadolu Efes point guard Jordan Farmar. He said "We established a team equal to half of what Jordan Farmar makes per year at Anadolu Efes" Figures indeed didn't lie as Antalya Bsb started to the season with 2 consecutive losses. They achieved their first victory against Aliaga in the 3rd match day. They also have the same record of 1/4 like home side Olin, and this game is just as important for Olin as for them.

Since both sides perform very unstably, this is a very risky game in terms of side betting. Any outcome shouldn't be surprising as both teams lack certain quality. Although, I personally believe that Olin Edirne with the support of their own crowd is close to the victory here, the given game total seems to be more profitable. After having lost 3 games consecutively, I expect Olin to slow down the tempo. They finally play against an opponent against which they could possibly control the game. The given game total is worth to take with medium confidence.

Pick : Game Total Under 155.5 @ 1.88

Good luck and happy betting!
