Mersin Bsb - Tofas

Mersin Bsb Tofas pick
Mersin Bsb. and Tofas are going to challenge each other in the opening game of the weekend. After a required long road trip, Mersin Bsb. lost its first game at home against Pinar Karsiyaka last weekend. Tomorrow, they are going to try crushing Tofas which is a team not at the best shape to prevail strongly.

Mersin Bsb. played its all games on the road in the first half of 2012-2013 season. Last weekend, they finally had the chance to play in front of their home crowd for the first time this season. Although performing well in the first half, Mersin Bsb. couldn't hold on the lead and surrenderred to Pinar Karsiyaka for a defeat, mainly due to their poor 3rd quarter performance. This week, they are hosting a relatively weaker opponent against which I think they do have a great chance of achieving their first home victory of the entire season.

Tofas,too, began to the second half of the season with a loss. Last week, Tofas hosted Ted Kolejliler where visiting Ted Kolejliler achieved a decisive road victory. During the week, Tofas disappointed its fans when they were handed a defeat by Krasnye Krylia in Eurochallenge cup. This has been the second loss in a row at Eurochallenge cup and it might more or less mean the end of the journey for them. This saturday, Tofas will certainly look to bounce back by challenging Mersin Bsb.

Tofas recently waived point guard Steven Burtt. Although, I'm not sure the exact reason of this decision, he was said to show some unprofessional behaviour. Another foreign player Josh Heytvelt was injured during the week. He travelled with the team, but it's uncertain whether or not he'll play tomorrow. His absence, if not play, may greatly shorten Tofas frontcourt rotation. Mersin Bsb. has a roster of decent quality. They do receive constant production from their foreign players. Small forward Ali Karadeniz is the scoring leader of the league once again, so he shoulders Mersin Bsb. team in the offense.

Inexperienced Tofas rotation struggled in finalizing the games many times this season and this road game could just be one of those times again. After some point, I expect home side to take the absolute initiative of the game. Considering the recent negative news from Tofas side, I think Mersin Bsb. is a clear favourites here. A double digit Mersin Bsb. victory is quite likely to happen.

Pick: Mersin Bsb -5.5 @ 1.88
Stake: 8/10

Good luck and happy betting!
