Royal Hali Gaziantep - Pinar Karsiyaka

royal hali gaziantep pinar karsiyaka pick

Turkish League's new team Royal Hali Gaziantep will face another decent team at home on saturday afternoon when Pinar Karsiyaka visits Gaziantep to achieve their first win on the road. Both teams played against elite teams last week; Pinar Karsiyaka defeated Fenerbahce Ulker at home whereas Royal Hali Gaziantep on the road surrenderred against Besiktas in the second half of the game.

Home side is the newest team of league and they try to stay out of relegation zone in their first year within Turkish Basketball league. So far, they achieved only one victory against Mersin Bsb., the only team without a victory yet. Even then, Home side suffered a lot, visiting Mersin Bsb leading the score till the final quarter when Royal Hali made the decisive move. Last week, Royal Hali Gaziantep offensed efficiently in the first half against Besiktas;however, Besiktas extended the lead in the 3rd quarter and obtained a victory with double digits.

Pinar Karsiyaka defeated another elite team, Fenerbahce Ulker, last week, after they handed in victory Besiktas a few weeks ago. So far, Pinar Karsiyaka has 4/5 record, where they won all their home games in the domestic league. Visitors do fine in Eurochallenge cup as well, winning both of their games so far. They suffered their only loss against Tofas on the road when the game went to the overtime. Pinar Karsiyaka has been recently argued of being tough only in front of their home crowd. Losing against Tofas sort of proved the point for such arguments. The team does not have any injury problems. So, Pinar Karsiyaka will try to demonstrate that they could win games on the road,too.

Royal Hali Gaziantep seems to have an upward trend in the past 2 weeks. They did really good against Besiktas for those who only looked at the box score. In fact, it was besiktas who defended terribly in the first half, especially in the second quarter. Pinar Karsiyaka performs constantly well so far. In the last 2 games, the contribution of Turkish players to the rotation increased remarkably. Pinar Karsiyaka have productive American players already and by the increasing efficiency of players like Caner Topaloglu, Ayhan Kentli, Bora Hun Pa├žun etc., they could keep dominating opponents in the upcoming days when match schedule gets busier. I think the quality difference between two teams are huge;therefore, I expect visitors to obtain their first win on the road this season, covering the spread as well. A double digit Pinar Karsiyaka win is quite likely to happen.

Pick : Pinar Karsiyaka -7.0 @ 1.88

Good luck and Happy betting!
