Turk Telekom - Erdemir

Last week's losing sides are going to face each other in an interesting game for 10th match day of Turkish Basketball league. Visiting side Erdemir suffered a shocking defeat at home when they played against Olin Edirne last week. Turk Telekom likewise lost its match up at Gaziantep.

As we stated previously, Erdemir is one of the consistent teams of this league. They've been performing steadily for  the past years. However, due to the tough schedule, Erdemir suffered more defeats than victories so far this season. Last week, everyone expected them to win against Olin;however, they are outrebounded by Olin Edirne. Visitors not only dominated at rebounding but also shot very efficiently which brough them an important victory on the road. To compensate that defeat, Erdemir is visiting Turk Telekom where they surely will look to bounce back.

Turk Telekom is another consistent team but only in the negative sense. They don't actually look like a complete basketball team. Since their performance is heavily based on shooting performance, they could beat literally any time provided that is their day to explode. Last week, they visited the bottom line team Royal Hali Gaziantep where they didn't surprise me by losing there. Turk Telekom recorded only 12 assists in 40 minutes. Newest addition Lance Williams also played for Turk Telekom for the first time. He contributed only 6 points in total of 14 minutes. Point guard D.Brown didn't score a single point while he finished the game with a total of 12 points all made at the second half.

In terms of the quality of rosters, visiting side Erdemir is a clear favourites here. I don't see Erdemir losing two games in a row, so they are very likely to play hard from the first whistle to win this game. Turk Telekom as usual will count on their outside shooting;however, Erdemir has the quality to match them up at this regard. Jure Balazic is a great player who is eager to create a lot of trouble for Turk Telekom in the paint. Outside shooters Melih Mahmutoglu, Gerrod Dwayne Henderson and Sean Marshall will provide the required outside scoring as well. Those who would like to increase profit can go for straight Erdemir victory whereas others who don't want to risk could stake on behalf of reasonable Erdemir spread. The spread is very likely to drop, so i suggest you to hurry up.

Pick : Erdemir +3.5 @ 1.88

Good luck and happy betting!
