Pinar Karsiyaka - Oldenburg

Pinar Karsiyaka Oldenburg pick
After a waiting of almost a month, finally the most important weekend of the season has arrived for Pinar Karsiyaka. The team's biggest aim was to win the title in this tournament and here they are to realize it. The Eurochallenge title is just two games ahead and tonight Pinar Karsiyaka is going to face Ewe Baskets Oldenburg in the semi final of Eurochallenge Final Four.

Fiba official website has written a remarkably well preview for this game by including almost every detail one has to consider before betting on this game. Since, it's so beautifully written, i won't repeat the same points again. You can read the preview here to get more insight regarding this match up. Instead, I'll write some subjective opinions why i'm taking the bet I believe is worth to exploit. First of all, the motivation of the home side is as high as it could easily reach to the sky. Head Coach Ufuk Sarica has been in charge of this team for less than a year, and he's about to realize a milestone for his career in spite of he's easily said to be in his early years of his career as a coach. Not only him, but also entire Pinar Karsiyaka rotation is determined to achieve the title and present it to their fans. More particularly, Pinar Karsiyaka center Alade Aminu is going to play his second consecutive final four in this tournament. Last year, he was a player of Elan Chalon which lost the cup againt Besiktas Milangaz in Hungary. Pinar who supports the team for years as the main sponsor would obviously be pleased to cash in the amount of investment they've been doing. It's a company which operates in food industry and most of their sales are accounted for export markets. So being represented abroad is important for them.

Apart from the player side, the bigger aspect lies within the venue. Pinar Karsiyaka basketball operations managed to obtain the rights to host this year's final four right after they defeated Paris Levallois in the quarter finals. The advantage of home venue is huge for Pinar Karsiyaka as they have been a total beast in home games since the beginning of the season. Both in the domestic competition and eurochallenge environment, Pinar Karsiyaka was remarkably more dominant at home than they are on the road. Not to mention that there is going to be enormous crowd behind them when they face Ewe Baskets Oldenburg tonight.

Hosting squad Pinar Karsiyaka is well rested as their game was cancelled last weekend. There isn't any injury problems in the rotation. Jon Diebbler is fully recovered and back in the action.  A home side victory is highly probable. The spread is is reasonable, too. I think it's just worth to try under the light of above explained reasons.

Pick: Pinar Karsiyaka -4.5 @ 1.88
Stake: 10/10

Good luck and happy betting!
