Anadolu Efes - Real Madrid

Anadolu Efes Real Madrid pick
I've been pretty busy recently, so i just didn't have the time to check out the odds for this week's match up. However, the odds determined for this game seems pretty attractive to me. Since, I finally have some time to write a few lines, here it comes.

Anadolu Efes put up a disappointing performance in last week's Turkish Cup finals. They were beaten by Galatasaray Medical Park which made a lot of people lose money while, in contrast, making the bookies richer. Everyone was pretty pissed because they staked money so they expected more challenging performance, but i think it was just normal. Anadolu Efes intentionaly didn't give much shit about the cup. I believe, their biggest focus is certainly the euroleague this season,so head coach Oktay Mahmudi's team will do their best to make their ways to F4. It was more than 10 years before since Anadolu Efes played in final four, so prior to a game against Real Madrid which could be decisive to lead the group stage, such a delusional poor performance in relatively unnecessary cup finals could be very understanble.

The visiting side Real Madrid has been one of the clear favourites of this year's F4 since the beginning of the tournament. They concluded the first group stage with 7/3 record and their performance increased even further once the TOP 16 kicked in. So far, Real Madrid is 6/0 and they'll certainly aim to keep it that way. Before tonight's match up, Real Madrid played on the road 4 times out of 6 games where they defeated both German teams with double digit leads, and Unicaja Malaga and Panathinaikos Athens by single digit victories.

Visiting Real Madrid with given statistics is nominaly closer to a win tonight. However, basketball is a team sport and the outcome is decided upon the team effort spent on the court rather than the statistics. It's probably the best game of the night to sit down and enjoy. If we are to stake some money and increase the excitement, I think i'll go for a spread on behalf of Anadolu Efes by their home court advantage. In such a game which is open to be decided by clutch times, I think the given spread is quite reasonable for Anadolu Efes to stay within even if they lose the game tonight.

Pick: Anadolu Efes +4.5 @ 1.90
Stake: 8/10

Good luck and happy betting!
