Antalya - Olin Edirne

Antalya Olin pick
This is the game I've been waiting for a week. Antalya Bsb. is a team which gets closer to relegation week by week. Olin Edirne is another one which struggles heavily to stay out of the relegation zone. So, it's going to be a decisive battle which sets the fate of either side;possibly more decisive for Antalya Bsb. rather than visiting Olin Edirne.

As I said, I pretty much decided on what to bet on this game last monday. Olin Edirne lost against Galatasaray Medical Park last saturday but they didn't surrender so easily just like I estimated. In fact, the game was quite head to head in scoring until very final minutes of the last quarter. Galatasaray Medical Park at the end won the game as being probable outcome of that match up;however, Olin Edirne impressed well for the future. Antalya Bsb. visited Anadolu Efes last monday. Unlike Olin Edirne, it was a performance which made me make my mind totaly on Antalya Bsb. In fact, Antalya team seemed to have already accepted relegation mentally if not at all mathematically yet. The loss of Olin Edirne wasn't a big deal because they already had a victory at hand, achieved against Hacettepe University in preceeding week, but for Antalya, It looked more meaningful than ever. Even the change of head coach didn't bring any luck to them.

This week, Antalya Bsb. power forward-center Jermareo Davidson was reported to leave the team because of his unpaid salaries. He was a great source of boost after he arrived.(Davidson averaged 16.7 points and 7.6 rebounds per game) Another foreign player Jordan Theodore is speculated to wish to leave the club as well. Therefore, the tight Antalya Bsb. rotation will be even tighter against Olin Edirne tomorrow. Visiting Olin Edirne, on the other hand, gets better each week once new signing Filip Videnov goes through his adjustment period. The team seems to have established confidence on point guard Mehmet Yagmur again, so his readdition to the rotation certainly strengthened Olin Edirne further. He averaged 15 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game this year and he's undoubtedly one of the most valuable domestic players in the league.

If I say Antalya Bsb hardly bands the starting line up to play a match, i don't mean to exaggerate much. In fact, In fact I seriously have no idea how they'll form their rotation after the leave of Davidson and potential break with Theodore. Olin Edirne has the same amount of victories with Antalya Bsb., so they definitelly wish to exploit this occasion. I think away victory here has a great value which I'll stake before the odds drop further.(The lines are likely to be reversed completely until the start of the game)

Pick: Olin Edirne ML @ 2.0
Stake: 10/10

Good luck and happy betting!

  1. The odds are totally reversed as I wrote above last night.

    However, the pick is of still great value.

    Antalya Bsb. rotation is so missing that the team trained with only 7 people during entire last week. I think they'll get to the arena with 8 players at most.
