Partizan - Besiktas

partizan besiktas pick
One of the toughest games of the night will take place in Belgrad tonight when Partizan will host Besiktas JK for their sixth match of group stage. Home side hasn't obtained a victory yet and they'll try to achieve their first win of the season in Euroleague. Besiktas, after beating Rytas on the road last weekend, is at ease but this doesn't mean that they let Partizan take the control. They'll certainly try to add another win to their record as well.

Partizan is the leader of Adriatic League. However, they lost all their euroleague games. Partizan has a very young team with decent potential. In fact, many of their match ups, especially those at home, they've shown their potential. Nevertheless, they just couldn't disperse their potential and concentration over the 40 minutes. Partizan lost against CSKA in overtime, and they couldn't hold on to their lead against Brose Basket in the 4th quarter. Last week, Brose Basket performed a decent come back, trailing home side Partizan with the score of 10-22 in the final quarter and eventually winning the game 72-77 on the road. Both of those defeats could be account for lack of experience by individual level.

Besiktas started to their first Euroleague season very well where they recorded 2/0 after the second matchday. Later, they faced big names of the group, CSKA Moscow and Regal Barcelona, and those teams inevitably handed in Besiktas heavy losses. Last week, Besiktas JK played its 3rd game on the road and they collected their second road victory against Lietuvos Rytas, securing 3rd spot of the group stage further. The victory became easier when Besiktas JK found its perimeter shooting rythm, which was the key factor of wins against Partizan and Brose Basket earlier. Visitors are coming to Belgrade a lot more comfortably now.

Tonight's match up could be the toughest game to make side betting. Partizan, despite being 0/5 so far, is a dangerous team not only the potential of Partizan squad but also the athmosphere created by the fans. Playing in front of the home crowd in Belgrade is, no brainer, one of the hardest match ups for any visiting squad. The given spread is quite levelled, so the victory of either team doesn't surprise anyone. Partizan is expected to be a lot motivated to win their first game of the season, so they better be aggressive in the defense and should look for fast breaks to create easy scoring. They'll count on the assists of Leo Westermann in offense. Besiktas, on the other hand, will try to contend them relying on their perimeter shooting and quick offensive sets executed by Curtis Jerrells. One interesting note is that Curtis Jerrells started to his european career in Partizan when he also played in Euroleague and helped his team to reach top 16. So, he should be pretty familiar with tonight's athmosphere.

In such an exciting game, both teams better score as many points as they could to lead the game. The determined game total is quite reasonable to stake on. Let me remind you that the first game between those teams ended 81-65.

Pick : Game Total Over 144.5 @ 1.90

Good luck and Happy betting!
