April was a fine month to get us back on track after a poor March, although our last pick did leave a bitter taste in my mouth if I'm being honest. Milano at their worst performance of the season while at the same time Pesaro were simply flawless. In fact the result provoked plenty of rumours in Italy that maybe Milano simply gave the game away to Pesaro and while everything remains speculation at this point, there was definitely something strange in the way Milano approached the game both mentally and tactically. Anyway no need to cry over spilt milk. We move on. It goes without saying that we will not be backing Milano again anytime soon.
Our long-term bet unfortunately didn't pay off. Practically every chance Baskonia had of eliminating Fenerbahce was ruined by Jayson Granger's injury just before the start of the series considering he is simply irreplaceable for this team for what he brings at both ends of the floor. Obviously I would have never backed Baskonia had I known they would have to play all the crucial playoff games without him. A pity but this is one of the risks involved with every long-term bet.
May is already upon us and with the schedule getting thinner with every passing day, I don't expect a very busy month. Most of the times the bookies price late season and playoff games quite accurately but you never know. In any case we will be here to take advantage of any market inefficiencies. I will talk to you soon guys!
