Antalya Bsb. - Turk Telekom

Turk Telekom Antalya pick
What a crucial battle between these teams. Antalya Bsb. has only 3 victories so far in the league and they share the last 3 places with Hacettepe University and Olin Edirne. Turk Telekom has only one win ahead of them and losing this game could cost a lot to either side. Both teams will play to achieve one of the most important wins of the season for themselves.

Antalya Bsb. was hosted by Galatasaray Medical Park last weekend. Although they fought hard, their tight rotation didn't allow them to maintain their guard till the end of the game. It was a loss which could be regarded as reasonable because it wasn't a target match up for them whereas facing Turk Telekom definitely is. Therefore, Antalya Bsb. is going to take advantage of its home court to defeat its opponent.

Turk Telekom played against a strong opponent as well. While Turk Telekom managed to control the scoring at the first half, Besiktas took the absolute command of the game in the 3rd quarter and trailed Turk Telekom on the road over 20 points difference. Therefore, Turk Telekom apparently isn't any better which makes this game particularly interesting to focus on.

Last week, Antalya Bsb. was dominated mainly in the paint. Their biggest scoring hope Jermareo Davidson was well guarded by Galatasaray forwards. He only shot %20 with 2/10 inside the area, which caused Antalya Bsb. to be heavily defeated. Turk Telekom is just terrible inside the paint in spite of they have different alternatives there. Davidson could easily find his rythm again in Turk Telekom paint. In the visiting side, Dee Brown doesn't play as well as he used to in the beginning of the season. I think that's one of the main reasons why Turk Telekom has a downward performance. Last week, Turk Telekom scored only 5 points in the final quarter while allowing 25 to Besiktas. What a terrible performance! They once again relied on their 3 pts shooting performance which let them down last week. It won't be different today. Unless Turk Telekom miracleously shoots well behind the arc, home side which needs the victory more than Turk Telekom is closer to win this game. In fact, I also think that they probably cover the spread as well.

Pick : Antalya Bsb. -4.5 @ 1.88
Stake: 6/10

Good luck and happy betting!
