Zalgiris Kaunas - A.Efes Istanbul

Zalgiris Anadolu Efes pick
Zalgiris Kaunas who already lost its hope to qualify is hosting Anadolu Efes tonight. In case of visitors's victory, Anadolu Efes is going to secure the qualification towards the quarter finals. Home side Zalgiris Kaunas had already injury problems, so head coach Joan Plaza might utilize a different rotation tonight.

Anadolu Efes has been performing poorly in the recent games;however, I still think the motivation of this match up is supposed to be quite a different one, so Anadolu Efes team is likely to be highly motivated to win this game. In the domestic league, they did have really hard time beating mediocre teams despite having such a deep and quality roster. In the last two weeks, things weren't any better in Euroleague either. Anadolu Efes kept winning, but the german teams consecutively put Anadolu Efes into serious trouble even though they couldn't convert those efforts into victories.

The injury of Sascha Vujacic still continues, so I don't expect him to play tonight either. In Zalgiris, Tremmell Darden is reported to have left the club. Tadas Klimavicius and Paulinas Jankunas are injured due to shoulder problems. Marko Popovic is also sidelined. So, it's really difficult to estimate How Juan Plaza utilizes the remaining of his rotation tonight.

Normally, it is an even match up;however, the amount of the odds given helps me make my mind. Anadolu Efes team is so close to qualification that they've never been any closer for years. Zalgiris is eliminated, so they got nothing to fight for. They are also very incomplete due to the absent players. Road match ups in Lithuania has always been tough and will always be, but I'm confident of Anadolu Efes squad's rotation. I think the ML odds are well worth to try under such circumstances.

Pick: Anadolu Efes ML @ 1.75
Stake: 8/10

Good luck and happy betting!
