Royal Hali Gaziantep - Anadolu Efes

Royal Hali Gaziantep Anadolu Efes pick
Royal Hali Gaziantep is going to host Anadolu Efes for the closedown game of the match day 15. Anadolu Efes defeated Fenerbahce Ulker last week whereas Royal Hali Gaziantep suffered a heavy loss against Aliaga Petkim on the road.

Royal Hali Gaziantep rotation experience serious health problems prior to this game.  Akeem Swann, Charles Rhodes, Caner Ercan and Yunus Cankaya are injured and they are not going to play against Anadolu Efes. Although Charles Rhodes has been injured for a while, Akeem Swann missed last week's match up as well. In addition to these unfortunate men, Lorenzo Gordon was reported to experience food poisoning. He is said to play with injection;however, one can never estimate how much he could contribute due to the side effects of poisoning. In short, Royal Hali Gaziantep already was supposed to find a hard challenge. Now, it's going to be even harder for them.

Anadolu Efes is at top shape. They started to Euroleague top 16 with 2/1 record while they defeated Fenerbahce Ulker in the league last weekend. Point guard Kerem Tunceri is back from his injury. He contributed well against Fenerbahce and he was also good in midweek against Alba Berlin. His presence is especially essential for the domestic league rotation because of the foreign player limitation. The more time he receives, the more time Jordan Farmar finds to catch his breath on the bench.

Above mentioned injuries are critical for this game's fate. Akeem Swann receives 33 minutes per game and averages 14.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists. Lorenzo Gordon played his first game last week. Yunus Cankaya receives 20 minutes and averages 5.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. Given the injuries, Royal Hali Gaziantep has only two foreign players, point guard Jerome Collins and center Joey Dorsey, available for this game. Their tight rotation will certainly be tightened. Anadolu Efes has recently gained an impressive momentum, so this is a great chance for them to sustain such streak. Within 1-2 hours, the spread might rise as high as you can imagine, so it's better to hurry up!

Pick : Anadolu Efes Full time handicap -14.0 @ 1.88
Stake: 10/10

Good luck and happy betting!
