Besiktas JK - Barcelona

Besiktas is preparing to face Regal Barcelona for the third time this season. In the first meeting, Regal Barcelona defeated Besiktas at home 72-60 while Besiktas suffered even heavier loss in front of its home crowd 48-78. Barcelona Regal has already suffered one loss whereas home side Besiktas is 0/3 currently. Turkish side is going to surprise everyone by seeking a victory on thursday evening.

Both teams have been reported to have some players missing for this match up. Visiting Barcelona won't be able to utilize Juan Carlos Navarro and Pete Mickael while Besiktas JK small forward Serhat Cetin was for some reason excluded indefinitely from the rotation. Although the reason is still unknown, he is for sure not going to play against Regal Barcelona tomorrow night. Besides his exclution, their only true center Slovenian Gasper Vidmar has missed the last 2 euroleague games due to his injury. During this period, he wasn't risked in the domestic league either. So, I assume he plays on thursday night, but for the exact information i think it's better to follow up latest news tomorrow.

Straightforward thinking, the determined spread is somewhat surprising. Last time, Barcelona visited Abdi Ipekci Arena, they trailed Besiktas JK with 30 points, so considering this fact, the given spread is pretty low.  The players who are reported to miss this game missed the previous game as well. Nevertheless, Regal Barcelona covered that spread quite comfortably last time. Besiktas JK isn't any better currently than it was, so I believe we should take advantage of low spread. Deep Regal Barcelona rotation should be able to cover the absence of any missin player comfortably. Without Serhat Cetin and possibly unfit Gasper Vidmar, I think the spread against Barcelona Regal is worth to try.
