Fenerbahce Ulker - Banvit

Fenerbahce Ulker Banvit Basketball pick
This is definitely the game of the weekend! Wounded Fenerbahce Ulker is hosting Eurocup participant Banvit BK Bandirma. Both teams suffered only one defeat each, so one of themm is going to conceed the second loss on sunday afternoon.

Fenerbahce Ulker keeps disappointing everyone even though they set really high targets at the beginning of the season. They were supposed to obtain the key to Euroleague top 16 already;however, they are going to host Mapooro Cantu next week to see whether or not their european adventure is over for this season. Before that, they have to face another elite opponent, this time for domestic competition.

Banvit BK Bandirma has established itself as an elite contender team with a steady performance for a few years. This season is of no exception. So far, their only defeat is handed in by Anadolu Efes which could be regarded as acceptable. Eurocup,on the other hand,is a different story because they,like Fenerbahce Ulker, also face the risk of early elimination as they suffered a home defeat last wednesday against incomplete Valencia Basket. Next week, they'll try to defeat s.Oliver Baskets in order to make their way through Eurocup Top 16. Before this important game, they need to focus on how to confront Fenerbahce Ulker on the road.

Fenerbahce Ulker has encountered some problems such as Bo McCalebb's injury or late addition David Andersen's adjustment period. However, they just can't convince anyone even after those problems are disappeared. There seems to be more than meets the eye, possibly inside problems among coach, the team or the club management itself rather than individual factors. Domestic league is totally a different area and Banvit isn't a team to underestimate. Against Panathinaikos on friday night, they but Romain Sato were totally lost. Fenerbahce Ulker not only lost but also surrenderred quickly.

Banvit is a team with great inside and outside balance. Vladimir Stimac and Chuck Davis are decent twosome to dominate in the paint while Sammy Meija, Kalin Lucas and Keith Simmons provide good outside scoring. They are also 2 days more rested than Fenerbahce Ulker. They are very likely to dominate Fenerbahce Ulker in the paint while home side will rely on the extra scoring of players such as Omer Onan and Baris Ermis who is a former Banvit player. Considering they faced Panathinaikos on the road and they have to confront Banvit only after 40 hours of that match up, Fenerbahce Ulker team should definitely be exhausted and very likely to find it hard to concentrate for this match up. The odd for Banvit victory is of great value here.

Pick : Banvit ML @ 3.25

Good luck and happy betting!
