Galatasaray Medical Park - Besiktas

Galatasaray Besiktas pick
Undefeated leader of Turkish Basketball League Galatasaray Medical Park will host their rival Besiktas for 8th match day of the league on sunday afternoon. Home side just crushed Lokomotiv Kuban a few days ago by 24 points difference  and they will be looking for another victory against another important team, Besiktas.

Galatasaray Medical Park with their rotation of great depth has performed terrific so far, so far losing only once in Krasnodar where they had to cope with serious logistics issues. They have a rotation with different alternatives for almost every position, so they surpass their opponents most of the time. This week, they were hit by the shocking injury of small forward Henry Domercant who is likely out of season. So, they are reported to be looking for a replacement for him. Especially in the paint, with Furkan Aldemir, Ersin Dagli, Milan Macvan and Boniface N'dong being available in the rotation, Galatasaray Medical Park is hard to be contained by the opponents.

Besiktas started to the season with some financial problems;however, with the natural motivation brought by the Euroleague athmosphere, they succeeded to make their way to the top 16 already after the 7th match day. In the domestic league, in contrast, they have some concentration problems which cause them to suffer even against mediocre  teams. So far, their domestic performance is totally disappointing and on sunday, they'll play the hardest game of the their schedule so far. Besiktas rotation is somewhat tight to compete successfully in both Euroleague and Turkish League. Especially in center position, Gasper Vidmar is almost out of any other alternative. Galatasaray Medical Park is also more rested because they played their last game on wednesday evening whereas Besiktas played on friday evening.

Nominally, Galatasaray Medical Park in front of their home crowd is a heavy favourite for this match up. They are very likely to heavily dominate Besiktas especially in the paint, where Gasper Vidmar is the only player to stand against their deep front court rotation. David Hawkins is a player that could fill any gap during the game. Point guard Ender Arslan is having a terrific season. Milan Macvan is a player that could shoot also from the outside so he'll definitelly create a lot of mismatches on behalf of Galatasaray Medical Park. Furkan Aldemir and Ersin Dagli will share the minutes to give some breathing time for Boniface N'dong. Besiktas has point guard Tutku Acik injured.  Visiting side lacks his high basketball iq and his creativity by pick and roll sets on the offense. Unless outside shooters Patrick Christopher, Serhat Cetin and Curtis Jerrells contribute constantly, the game is very likely to be played on Galatasaray Medical Park lead.

Galatasaray Medical Park managed to defeat Anadolu Efes with double digits a few weeks ago, so there is no reason why they can't achieve it against Besiktas, either.

Pick : Galatasaray Medical Park -7.5 @ 1.88

Good luck and happy betting!
