Pinar Karsiyaka - Antalya

Pinar Karsiyaka Antalya pick
Eurochallenge Final Four participant Pinar Karsiyaka is going to host Antalya Bsb. which desperately fights against relegation. Pinar Karsiyaka was handed in a defeat by Galatasaray Medical Park last weekend and Antalya Bsb. couldn't hold on against Besiktas at home either. Both sides are in need of a victory, especially visiting Antalya team.

Pinar Karsiyaka faced Galatasaray Medical Park on the road last week, where there was serious riot between the opposing fans prior to the match up. Since the events were not properly controlled, the venue was emptied by police force and the begin of the game was delayed about 2 hours. Right after such a tense athmosphere, Pinar Karsiyaka suffered a heavy defeat. Point guard Robert Lee Dixon was totally out of shape. Jon Diebler after some weeks due to an injury also played in the game. Today, Pinar Karsiyaka will host much weaker team in their home venue.

Antalya Bsb. is probably playing their last games in Turkish Basketball league. They are pretty much relegated along with Hacettepe University. Recently, Jordan Theodore who was reported to have agreed with Cedevita Zagrep, somehow returned to the team. Antalya Bsb. also signed Vladimir Golubovic about a month ago. Although those look to be positive developments, I don't think they do have enough time left for salvation.

In today's match up, Pinar Karsiyaka is clear favourites here. However, the spread continuously rises, so I'm not sure whether or not it does still possess any value. Antalya has a pretty tight rotation which makes it almost impossible for them to prevail against rotating Pinar Karsiyaka defense. Since home side lost their last match up previous week, they are very likely to start aggressive today. The leading scorer of Antalya Bsb. team Vladimir Golubovic so far averaged 26 points per game;however, he'll face probably the top front court rotation of the league. Quite presumably, Pinar Karsiyaka big men William Thomas and Alade Aminu are likely to shut him down.

I expect Pinar Karsiyaka to take the early lead of the game and extend it through the second quarter. A double digit Pinar Karsiyaka lead in the half time is very likely to occur today.

Pick: Pinar Karsiyaka First Half -8.5 @ 1.88
Stake: 8/10

Good luck and happy betting!
