Besiktas - Anadolu Efes

Besiktas Anadolu Efes pick
Euroleague participants face each other at the closedown game of 11th match day. Besiktas is going to host Anadolu Efes where they'll look to achieve their first victory against an important opponent this year.

Besiktas team suffered defeats against all the elite squads of the league. Although Besiktas played all those games on the road, losing all of them isn't what was expected from them. They suffered double digit losses against Fenerbahce Ulker and Banvit while Besiktas was beaten also by Galatasaray Medical Park 64-60 a few weeks ago. This time, they'll look to deliver a victory for their fans.

Anadolu Efes so far enjoyed its expensive roster and the advantages the deep rotation brings. They secured their qualification in Euroleague, while they are currently placed at the 5th place of the domestic league. Given the quality of their roster, everyone expected more from them. I believe they'll show their real strenght once Euroleague Top 16 kicks in.

Besiktas team has made some reinforcements recently. Point guard Daniel Ewing who played in Nba for Clippers and in Europe for bunch of different teams has been signed. They also strengthened their paint rotation by adding domestic center Cemal Nalga. With the addition of Ewing, Curtis Jerrells finds more time to catch his breath on the bench while Cemal Nalga will take some defensive burden of Gasper Vidmar's shoulder. Patrick Christopher is another player with a rising form. All those points will certainly help Besiktas to win this game against Anadolu Efes.

Although it is a 50/50 match up, I find home side Besiktas to be little closer to winning this game. The team achieved some good results, so significant amount of home crowd support is very likely to be provided. With a lot of  defeats in the record, home side Besiktas is the one that needs the victory more. It'll be close one, but i expect home side to enjoy the victory at the end. One quick remark; Besiktas defeated Anadolu Efes in the Super Cup at the beginning of this season.

Pick : Besiktas ML @ 2.10

Good luck and happy betting!
