Fenerbahce Ulker - Anadolu Efes

Fenerbahce Ulker Anadolu Efes pick
Anadolu Efes is missing some important players. Jordan Farmar is out for a couple of weeks whereas Stanko Barac is done for the rest of the season due to stress fracture. Such fracture is usually caused by unusual or repeated stress. Another reason might be the leg to be affected by heavy weight. In any case, Barac is out of the competition. Sascha Vujacic, on the other hand, is out of the rotation due to his conflict with head coach Oktay Mahmudi. He is a person with serious anger management issues. Those who follow NBA recall that he had a fight even with his countryman Goran Dragic during his NBA career. Obviously such disorder doesn't have a positive effect on professional athletes.

These points seem to be crucial and they in fact are. However, I still think that the spread determined for this match up is ridiculously high. Anadolu Efes team is mentally down as a result of elimination from Euroleague, but they do have enough depth in their rotation to compensate the absence of their injured buddies. I can't think of myself trusting Fenerbahce Ulker to cover today's spread. The bookies, in my opinion are just trying to fish us.

Pick: Anadolu Efes +6.0 @ 1.88
Stake: 10/10







Good luck and happy betting!

Flipping a coin ?

April, 20th games within Turkish Basketball League quite tricky. So, betting in either of them seems no different than flipping a coin for the moment. I'll update the post if i feel something.

Galatasaray - Fenerbahce


Galatasaray Medical Park Fenerbahce Ulker pick
I've been pretty busy recently, so i kind of ignored these pages nowadays. Too bad, I had to skip saturday games, so  let's concentrate on what is scheduled for sunday. Certainly, the best match up of today's schedule is between Galatasaray and Fenerbahce. Due to the 2 game suspension of Galatasaray Medical Park received as a result of the riots occurred in Pinar Karsiyaka game, they won't be having proper fan support. Instead, the game is set to be available only for women and children younger than 14 years old with tickets being free of charge. However, it's still a derby, so this game is a candidate to be a full of excitement.

Besiktas - Aliaga

Besiktas Aliaga Petkim pick
The last game of the weekend is scheduled between Besiktas and Aliaga Petkim in Abdi Ipekci Arena, Istanbul. Besiktas came to the end of their Euroleague campaign where they finished the competition by defeating Fenerbahce Ulker a few days ago. Aliaga Petkim, after bringing on Hakan Demir, works hard in order to catch a play off spot for the second time in the club's history. Since, Besiktas, from now on, is also likely to focus on the domestic competition, it's a must win game for both sides.

Recap of March 2013


Pic : realgrook.com
March finally came to an end, and it's now a time to evaluate our performance after a few days of a delay as i've been busy recently.It wasn't the best month of our performance so far, as we clearly struggled to hit a series of the picks especially in the second half of previous month. Considering the fact that Eurochallenge and Eurocup tournaments have come to an end as well as Euroleague teams played some consolidation games, we needed to reduce the amount of picks during March. Total of 32 picks were presented during March 2013.
