Real Madrid - Anadolu Efes Istanbul

Real Madrid Anadolu Efes pick
The final round of Euroleague's Top 16 group stage is set to be held tonight. Anadolu Efes is going to be hosted by Real Madrid on the road where both teams fight to secure the second spot right after CSKA Moscow. This game is particularly important for Anadolu Efes because in case of a defeat, they can't avoid facing Regal Barcelona on the quarter finals.

In the first match up, Anadolu Efes managed to defeat Real Madrid in the clutch times of a very exciting head to head scoring game in Abdi Ipekci Arena. The winning margin, though, was only 2 points as the game resulted 74-72 on behalf of Anadolu Efes, so double average clause here is totally negligible provided that both teams have the same amount of victories prior to this match up.

Anadolu Efes has definitely been going through an upside down form recently. Their latest lost against Unicaja Malaga was a clear indication of this trend. However, this game is extremelly crucial for them. Because in case Anadolu Efes loses and Panathinaikos wins, Anadolu Efes has no choice but to face Regal Barcelona in quarter finals; a team which all opponents better avoid in order to have higher chances of reaching final four held in London.

Sascha Vujacic is back on the court for Anadolu Efes whereas Martynas Pocius is still injured and unable to play for Real Madrid. It's such a game that is more than a victory at the moment. Anadolu Efes doesn't impress as much as it impressed about 2 months ago and Real Madrid with the home court advantage will certainly be chasing to defeat them. Although, I don't trust Anadolu Efes team at all, the given spread easily makes me rethink my position over and over. The return of Vujacic may bring some offensive boost which Anadolu Efes highly needs tonight. Real Madrid is an obvious favourite here, but i still think they don't go above and beyond today's spread.

Pick: Anadolu Efes +8.5 @ 1.90
Stake: 8/10

Good luck and happy betting!
