Ted Kolejliler - Antalya

ted ankara antalya pick
One of the most exciting teams of season, Ted Kolejliler, is going to host poorly performing Antalya Bsb., a team that is badly in need of victory. Visitors suffered a disappointing defeat against Erdemir at their own arena, so Antalya Bsb. will try to compensate that loss when they are hosted by Ted Kolejliler on saturday afternoon.

As we already stated a few times before, Antalya Bsb. is the cheapest team within Turkish Basketball league and they  fight to prevail against opponents that have much deeper rotations in the league. So far, they achieved only one victory which was against Olin Edirne and They are anchored at the bottom of the league standings. They should also be aware of their lacking quality so that Antalya Bsb. added a reinforcement to its squad. Former Banvit player Lance Williams was signed during the week. He is a center with great size who will help Antalya Bsb. to solve their problems in the paint. He'll definitelly add quality and depth to Antalya Bsb. rotation;however, coach Altar Tunckol said to utilize the players he counted on against Erdemir.That is, Lance Williams is not expected to play against Ted Kolejliler.

Ted Kolejliler, in my opinion, is the biggest surprise of this season so far. They perform really well especially when they play at home. By the support of their home crowd, They defeated Tofas by 9 points, Royal Hali Gaziantep by 18 points and Hacettepe University by 24 points. Ted Kolejliler had 3 predicted losses which were handed in by elite teams Banvit, Fenerbahce Ulker and Galatasaray Medical Park, all on the road. In fact, they have one of the best doubles in the paint. Nedim Yucel is a veteran power forward who has great experience of years. He averages 11.8 rebounds per game so far. His partner, serbian center Jovo Stanojevic, is a player of high basketball IQ, making him one of the best centers in the league. Actually, he is a master of low post offense who is also efficient from the line. He is averagin 17.7 points and 5.7  rebounds per game, 3rd best scorer of the league. When other foreign players, Benjamin Michael Woodside (9.5 points/game), Kirk Samuel Penney (17 points/game and Vanja Plisnic (9 points/game), also performs remarkably well, such stats make Ted Kolejliler just a team to watch.

Antalya Bsb. will have quite tough time to contend Ted Kolejliler rotation on the road. Their offensive quality is entirelly dependent on there american players who do contribute at their max most of the time. Since their rotation is tight and they can't get enough support from the rest of the squad, their guard collapses especially in the second halfs of the match ups. Lance Williams could have just been the right solution against strong Ted Kolejlier paint, he isn't expected to play.( Even if he does, he probably needs some time to get to know his new team)

Considering the current form graph of both teams, I find the determined handicap remarkably low. Ted Kolejliler has already beaten teams of same caliber as Antalya Bsb. comfortably, so they are very likely to repeat it again. At some point, this statistics will end and they'll fail at home. But i don't think poor Antalya Bsb is the team to make that surprise. The given spread is worth to take with confidence.

Pick : Ted Kolejliler -7.5 @ 1.94

Good luck and happy betting!
