September, 6th 2013 Eurobasket Slovenia other choices

Montenegro - Bosnia and Herzegovina

A collision of two non predictable teams takes place here. Both sides have been trailed by Latvia even though Montenegro seemed to have resisted more. Bosnia and Herzegovina also lost against strong Lithuania whereas Montenegro's only victory is achieved in a controversial situation against Macedonia. ( In my opinion, Milko Bjelica clearly pulled the rim in that final offense ) Anyway, this is not the point. Montenegro seems to have relatively larger rotation, but this still isn't a fact for me to trust them. I expect a close game with either team's victory possible. Avoiding this game is my call here.

Germany - Ukraine

Ukraine is 2/0 so far in the tournament. Honestly, I didn't give them any chance but they keep surprising me. Germany achieved a remarkable victory against France but lost miserably against mediocre Belgium. Another close match up with a low spread available. Despite the two victories, I still can't find myself trusting to Ukraine as Germans always scare me with their discipline and capabilities. Another no bet game for me.

Latvia - Lithuania

Probably the most interesting match up of today's schedule is this one. Two neighboring countries face each other in a sort of Baltic derby. Latvia has a perfect record by winning both of their first games whereas Lithuania lost against decent Serbia. Obviously Lithuania is a favorite side here, but remember I hate ML betting, so I'm not sure if this is the right spread to pay attention to. Given the nature of this match up and the fact that Latvia is coming with 2/0 record and expected to be competent, I seriously have doubts whether or not Lithuania could cover the spread in case they win this one. A Lithuanian victory is probable but backing them with the odds of 1.20, no thanks!
