Anadolu Efes Istanbul - Olin Edirne

Anadolu Efes Olin Edirne pick
Saturday turned out to be a terrible betting day as two underdogs defeated their opponents whereas everyone expectem them to be slaughtered. On sunday, the midday game is scheduled between Anadolu Efes and Olin Edirne. Anadolu Efes is going well both in Euroleague and domestic league. Visiting Olin Edirne has only one aim in the remainder of the season; to survive the relegation.

Anadolu Efes has arguably played the most deceptive games in betting point of view. Recently, I've lost so much money on betting Anadolu Efes games regardless of counting on them or placing my stakes against. Two days ago, Anadolu Efes hosted Brose Baskets Bamberg in Abdi Ipekci Arena and they hardly secured the victory in the overtime. Jordan Farmar was the leading scorer of the team while Dusko Savanovic also contributed well in clutch times. Once again, they are now supposed to direct their attention to domestic league as they are about to face a team which needs victory immediately.

Olin Edirne showed some sort of improvement in the last 5-6 games of the season;however, they haven't yet achieved enough wins to secure themselves out of the relegation zone. In fact, they are in a risk to end the week within the danger zone because Antalya Bsb. defeated Ted Kolejliler today and got themselves out of there for the moment. Olin Edirne lost a crucial game against Aliaga Petkim last weekend. The gravity of that home loss makes even more sense right now as they are already in the relegation zone again. Tomorrow, they'll have a very tough game ahead of them.

Last week, 5 Olin players received over 30 minutes against Aliaga Petkim. Mehmet Yagmur, Bekir Yarangume and Filip Videnov played the entire game without being substituted. This is something which we haven't seen before in Gokhan Tastimur's rotation. It's good to notice his confidence over point guard Mehmet Yagmur in Olin Edirne squad. Anadolu Efes has arguably the deepest rotation in the league, so he better has to utilize more guys than he did last week. It's a definitely tough game and Olin Edirne needs a miracle if they wish to win this game. However, underdog victories turn out to happen more often than ever these days, so anything could happen.( First the loss of Pinar Karsiyaka and Fenerbahce Ulker last weekend and then Antalya and Tofas's victories today)

Anadolu Efes didn't perform well against Brose Baskets, so we might likely find them so ordinary again against Olin Edirne. Tight Olin Edirne rotation might face fatigue problems, but they could at least play 20 minutes properly. The half spread on behalf of the visitors is quite nice to try. The victory of Antalya Bsb. is supposed to give extra motivation to Olin Edirne not to surrender so easily.

Pick: Olin Edirne Half Time +9.5 @ 1.88
Stake: 8/10

Good luck and happy betting!
