Royal Hali Gaziantep - Fenerbahce Ulker

Gaziantep Fenerbahce Ulker pick
Fenerbahce Ulker will be hosted by Royal Hali Gaziantep Bsb. in a closedown game of matchday 8 within Turkish League. Fenerbahce Ulker was handed a defeat by Real Madrid less than 48 hours ago in a game where they managed to lead the scoring until the final quarter. Home side Royal Hali is badly in need of victory and they'll put everything they have to make the surprise happen.

Fenerbahce Ulker seems to have gained some momentum after Bo McCalebb is fully recovered from his injury problems. In fact, he performed really effectivelly on the tough road match up with Real Madrid where he played over 30 minutes. Bojan Bogdanovic is another player on fire who led his team in scoring with 18 points. As a team, they've really shown great concentration to win that game, but home side Real Madrid was the more experienced team who got things under control in the final minutes and defeated Fenerbahce Ulker by disappointing 16 points margin. Soon after that defeat, Fenerbahce Ulker has to face another opponent who will be for sure highly motivated as well.

Royal Hali Gaziantep is having its first year in Turkish Basketball league and they work hard to prevail. So far, they haven't had satisfying results yet even though they showed some good performances especially at home. There is quite an important information regarding this match from their side. Royal Hali head coach was replaced a few days ago, so new head coach Cem Akdag will be coaching his new team against Fenerbahce on saturday afternoon. Recently, they also made a spectacular addition to their rotation by signing Joey Dorsey, an Euroleague winning player with Olympiakos last year. Those points make Royal Hali side count on themselves further.

Fenerbahce Ulker played the last game of Euroleague match day 8th and less than 48 hours after, they'll be visiting in Gaziantep to face Royal Hali. Gaziantep is a city located in the eastern part of Turkey, so assuming Fenerbahce Ulker team arrived to Istanbul from Madrid on saturday morning, they probably headed straight to Gaziantep to face Royal Hali. Considering the amount of travelling in such a short period, they must be heavily exhausted. The biggest scoring aces Bo McCalebb and Bojan Bogdanovic played over 30 minutes against Real Madrid. Back up point guard Baris Hersek is injured so he isn't expected to play. Exhausted Bo McCalebb might not perform at his top. They are not allowed to utilize more than 3 foreign players at a time, so players like Emir Preldzic, Oguz Savas, Ilkan Karaman will have to share more minutes. From the home side, with the addition of Dorsey, they are certainly tougher team in the paint. They already had consistent contribution from their other foreign players, so they don't surrender that easily. According to what i heard from local people who follow the team more closely than i do myself, the previous coach wasn't as effective as he should have been in terms of in game decisions. So, they believe new trainer Cem Akdag will fix this handicap. A new coach always brings some energy, so they'll be definitelly the more motivated side. For a new coach, facing an elite team like Fenerbahce Ulker is something that he couldn't have asked for more.

Home side Royal Hali Gaziantep won't surrender that easily.

Pick : Royal Hali Gaziantep +13.5 @ 1.88

Good luck and happy betting!
