Banvit - Galatasaray Medical Park (Turkish Cup semi final)

Banvit Galatasaray Turkish cup pick
The second game of the semi finals will be played between Banvit Bandirma and Galatasaray Medical Park. Banvit comfortably defeated Hacettepe University two days ago while Galatasaray Medical Park managed to beat Anadolu Efes in a highly competitive game yesterday.

Since my pick is based on one significant factor, I'll keep this post short. Those who follow this blog knows very well that Banvit is a team that i don't like at all. They are totaly unreliable especially when they play away from their home.(In their home, it is a totally different story). In this match up, despite playing in the neutral court, they do have a significant advantage. Banvit faced weak Hacettepe University 2 days ago where head coach Orhun Ene enjoyed his wide rotation. None of their starters received more than 20 minutes in this match up. ( Orhun Ene used his entire rotation, kept them fresh for next round in other words) Galatasaray Medical Park, on the other hand, had to play much tougher game where head coach Ergin Ataman, in contrast, prefferred much tighther rotation.

Their leading scorers Carlos Arroyo and Jamont Gordon played 36 minutes each last night. After them, third leading scorer Milan Macvan played 28 minutes. Gordon is 33 years old whereas Arroyo is 34. I seriously doubt that these guys could easily handle such heavy back to back games. Unline Ergin Ataman, Banvit coach Orhun Ene likes to utilize as many players as possible to sustain defensive presence. He'll certainly refer to this approach against Galatasaray Medical Park tonight.

Rested Banvit against exhausted Galatasaray Medical Park should have a real chance of going through to the final.Hence, I think the spread on behalf of them is highly valuable.

Pick: Banvit +4.0 @ 1.85
Stake: 8/10

Pick: Banvit ML @ 2.40
Stake: 4/10

Good luck and happy betting!
