Tip Preview:
Kymi have completed an astonishing turnaround to their season since starting winless in their first 6 matches, going on a 8-3 record in the last three months and losing only to greek giants Olympiakos, highly ambitious AEK and Rethymno on the road. A big part to this transformation played the addition of McFadden who has been the top scorer not only of his team but of the entire Greek League averaging 20 points/game, while the signings of big men Kyser and Barlos have helped add depth to their frontcourt. Promitheas have had an excellent campaign as well and even if their initial 6-1 start was obviously not sustainable, they are still sitting comfortably within the playoff zone. Tomorrow they are facing Kymi with a couple of serious absences though with both Milosevic and Faye injured while Murry seems out of the squad now, failing to make a significant impact since replacing Releford back in January. Promitheas's coach Giatras will be probably forced to play small with Saloustros and Lypovyy at the forwards since Toutziarakis and Ellis are both centers and can't actually play together, severely limiting the team's options. Kymi are showing no sign of slowing down and it's worth getting involved backing them here.

Milano have hit the lowest point of their season when they were crashed by a decimated Cantu for the Cup quarterfinals. They have responded with an easy home win over Efes this week for the Euroleague but the fans have nevertheless booed the team for their shameful previous performance. This wildly inconsistent behaviour has extended to their home games as well this season. Mediolanum Forum has been a fortress the previous seasons. Milano had lost just 2 games at home in the last 4 years for the Serie A (excluding the playoffs) while they have already 2 defeats after just 9 games this season and could have easily been more considering the close wins over Brescia, Varese and Cremona. Sassari's 10-9 record doesn't do justice to the talent of this team as their campaign has derailed in part due to the many physical problems they have faced since the start, mainly with their two point guards Hatcher and Stipcevic. The team is healthy now though and this three week break was much needed to recover and re-group. Only two wins on the road so far for Sassari but it's worth noting how close they came in their last 4 matches (two lost in overtime) so there has been some bad luck involved as well. Figuring out Milano's performances and betting on or against them is like walking through a minefield. You never know what comes next. Having said that, the odds for Sassari are just too big to ignore here.

What a difference a couple of weeks can make! It was the middle of February when Avellino was entering the Final 8 of the Italian Cup with superb morale, full of hopes and in 1st place in the league after two comfortable and convincing wins over Torino and Pistoia. Two weeks later, the team is still shaken after a very disappointing and unexpected elimination from Cremona in the quarterfinals of the Cup. To make matters worse they have lost center N'Diaye to injury who is their only mobile big man and against an athletic team like Cantu he would have certainly come in handy. Fesenko on the other hand is still struggling with his knee and his presence tomorrow is up in the air. Cantu have had a completely different couple of weeks. Despite entering the Cup quarterfinal against Milano as huge outsiders and in precarious physical condition, they managed an unlikely 105-87 triumph over their rivals while in the semifinal against Brescia they fought bravely before getting eliminated in overtime. The good news this week was the return to action of top scorer Randy Culpepper and the signing of Perry Ellis who should give them a much needed depth in both forward positions. Different state of mind for the two teams going into this game. Considering the circumstances anything over 1.70 for Cantu looks fine in my opinion. Note that Pinnacle's 1.91 is a 0.0 handicap, so practically a draw no bet which means in case of overtime you get your money back. Bet365's odds cover overtime too.

We have talked about Iceland back in the last Eurobasket a few months ago. They are still the same atypical team without any clear reference points relying more on their combative nature than technical excellence. That's not to say there is not some talent available. Hermannsson and Hlinason are progressing nicely while veterans Stefansson and Baeringsson along with Palsson complement them. Czech Republic possess undoubtedly a superior team but this is a dangerous game. Iceland have just beaten Finland on Friday while the Czechs have also fatigue to handle after a very hard fought game in Bulgaria 2 days ago and then an almost 3700 km flight from Sofia to Reykiavik. It's worth backing Iceland here to pull another upset.

3 wins in 3 games for Germany in the World Cup 2019 European Qualifiers after defeating big favourites Serbia on Friday and are now facing Georgia at Tbilisi tomorrow. Yet again the dispute between Euroleague and FIBA means most teams can't employ Euroleague players which mixes the cards and makes figuring out team chemistry and performance almost a guessing game. Still, I like Germany's chances here. Their backcourt relying more on depth than quality remains the weakest link of the team but Akpinar, Tadda, Doreth and Saibou who share the minutes have considerable experience at this level. Georgia have perhaps exceeded expectations beating Austria yesterday but problems in their line-up remain. Besides Euroleague-bound star players Shermadini and Shengelia, injuries to Sanadze, Markoishvili and now Tsintsadze means roster talent and depth is seriously compromised. Dixon, young talent Bitadze and veteran Tskitishvili will have to carry the team although it's worth noting that for Dixon this is going to be his 3d game in just 5 days after playing 30 and 36 minutes in his last couple of matches and will be likely forced to carry a similar workload tomorrow too. We will see if his effectiveness suffers as a result. In any case, the Germans are strong favourites here in my eyes but due to the unpredictable nature of this kind of games we should stick to 2 units for this one guys.

In a huge surprise yesterday Cantu practically demolished Milano (just 1.10 at Pinnacle before the start) scoring 105 points and shooting an unreal 14/25 from the 3point line. All that despite still missing top scorer Culpepper and key big man Crosariol and coming into the game on a 3 game losing streak in the league. Brescia had also no problem defeating Bologna, leading from start to finish and confirming our bet. The big question now is if Cantu have enough left in the tank to repeat a similar performance today. All starters with the exception of Thomas played over 32 minutes yesterday and it does not go unnoticed that Burns, Chappell and Thomas are all over thirty years old as well. Perhaps more than that though, I remain skeptical whether they can repeat a similar shooting night again so soon. On the other hand, Brescia have given absolutely no reason to doubt them and are the better, more balanced team in this match-up. I wouldn't be surprised if they prevail comfortably in the end tonight but in any case the value is with Brescia here.

Final 8 of the Italian Cup at the neutral venue of Florence and the last of the quarter-finals. We talked about Virtus Bologna at a previous pick in February. The news is that their 4 game winning streak came to an end at Sassari last Sunday and while Alessandro Gentile is back from suspension, they have now lost Aradori to injury who is their best perimeter threat and scorer. In the meanwhile Stefano Gentile (Alessandro's brother) is in pain with a right wrist issue which is also his shooting hand. He should be able to play today although big troubles for Bologna's backcourt if he is limited or he doesn't recover in time as that would force coach Ramagli to employ at least for a few minutes the inexperienced Pajola at the point guard position and possibly Alessandro Gentile too as a point forward. Bologna have built their success taking advantage of their strong home court (8-2 record) while on the road their effectiveness drops significantly. Just 3 wins in 8 matches, all against teams at the lower half of the table. Brescia are coming from their worst defeat of the season at Varese and this is the first time they were completely outplayed by an opponent. I wouldn't worry too much though. They have already proved their worth after 19 matches so I tend to consider this loss as a one-off and until we see further proof of struggles for Brescia I wouldn't mind backing them at odds around 2.00 here. Not a huge value left so let's stick to 2 units for this one.

Huge blow last Thursday for Brindisi after the departure of center Cady Lalanne who has agreed terms with Besiktas and has already left for Turkey. He has been the cornerstone of the team this season averaging almost a double double in points and rebounds and has also played a fundamental part in Brindisi's recent resurrection that showed them win 4 of their last 6 games climbing out of last place. Lydeka has recently arrived to replace not Lalanne but the also departing Oleka, so Brindisi are again in the market for a big man! Meanwhile Milano is coming to town. Milano has once again failed to meet expectations in the Euroleague although winning 3 of their last 5 games did help to give some hope of better days ahead even if reaching the playoffs is out of the question at this point. Their dominion in Italy is also under threat as 4 teams share now the same 13-5 record at the top of the standings. Still, judged on roster quality and talent, this is by far the best in Italy despite failing to perform at a high level on a consistent basis. This unpredictable behaviour of Milano is the reason why we are getting just a 4 point handicap here but considering the circumstances it's worth taking.

A brutal schedule for Trento in 2018 that has seen them face 6 of the top 8 teams in the league and now the seventh when they go against Cantu tomorrow. Just 2 wins in these 6 games for Trento but a clear sign of progress in their last couple of matches, first beating first placed Brescia on the road and then staying competitive against Eurocup big favorites Lokomotiv Kuban before succumbing to a 71-74 defeat in the end. Further good news is the return of point guard Gutierrez who missed their last two league games after he was disqualified for getting into a fight. Cantu have exceeded expectations so far considering all their internal issues between the Gerasimenko owners and coach Recalcati at first which led to his resignation and then the heavy contestations of the fans as well towards them. Still, the team managed to enter the Final 8 of the italian cup but they now face an uphill battle when they visit Trento. Besides losing their last couple of games, they will be missing top scorer Culpepper for the first time this season and Crosariol is also in serious doubt because of injury. The value is clearly with Trento here.

Different goals for Oldenburg and Hapoel Holon when they meet tomorrow. The Germans have already qualified and simply searching for a better placement ahead of the playoff phase of the Champions League while the Israelis are eliminated from the next round but are still in hunt for a FIBA Europe Cup spot (5th & 6th positions), so different motivation but certainly not a pointless game. Oldenburg are still troubled by injuries that have hit their front line with De Zeeuw missing for several weeks now while Mahalbasic's presence is still in the air having missed the last Bundesliga game. Hapoel Holon are the fastest playing team in the league and quite unpredictable as a result creating plenty of score alternations in the course of their games. Their are still winless on the road so one could argue that their style of play hasn't exactly paid dividends but they have gone really close in at least 3 occasions during the season. Health issues have also troubled Hapoel Holon with Holloway, Alexander missing a handful of games combined while Rice jr. and Cline only joined the team in mid-season. A lot of variables to consider in the end that may make this match not as straightforward for Oldenburg as one might think at first glance.

Those last 2 weeks have been a nightmare for Torino. First the sudden resignation of coach Banchi which confirmed the reports of bad relations between him and the board that begun last summer, then the appointment of veteran Recalcati at his place and now after just a few days at the helm, he has resigned as well! A real mess... In the meantime the team has suffered 5 consecutive heavy defeats in all competitions by an incredible 20.6 points of average margin and they risk of demolishing everything good that they had built from the start of the season. Zenit are in a much better shape lately. Gordon is back from injury, Griffin was signed to replace Laprovittola and has already made his debut with an impressive performance against Lietuvos Rytas and are going in Italy with a high morale after winning 7 of their last 9 games in 2018, only losing twice by Eurocup big favorites Bayern. Truth be told, Zenit can qualify tomorrow even if they lose by up to 10 points but I seriously doubt they are going into the game with such a dangerous mindset and I expect them to begin playing aggressively right from the start to remove any hopes from their opponents of reversing the situation. I simply can't see Torino as favorites here considering the circumstances.

A easy game for Casale at first glance but on closer examination Treviglio may have a decent chance of upsetting the hosts here. Casale will be missing both their most valuable player Jamarr Sanders and Brett Blizzard who together constitute the two best shooters of the team and arguably the only dependable ones. Unsurprisingly in the first game without them Casale shot a dreadful 3/25 from the 3 point line which contributed to their heavy loss against Reggio Calabria. Treviglio have recently made a significant change in their line up replacing power forward Douvier with center Easley and the move seems to pay off in the short term, winning 3 of their last 4 matches despite going against 3 of the top-5 teams in the west division of the Serie A2 (Biella, Trapani and Tortona). 3.40 for a Treviglio victory is good enough to get involved.

A very unfortunate season for Pistoia, who along with Reggiana are the two teams mostly penalised by injuries so far. The first victim for Pistoia was Sanadze who was injured in pre-season and then again in November and finally replaced by Jamon Gordon who after just 5 games decided to retire! At his place came Diawara. Then it was the turn of Kennedy to get injured and eventually replaced by Ivanov and if all that wasn't enough, McGee and LaQuintana were also forced to spend significant time on the sidelines missing 5 games apiece. A very confusing situation indeed. Obviously under these circumstances, the second from last place in the standings comes as no surprise for Pistoia who started the season with a comfortable mid table spot as their main goal. Already an important game for them tomorrow against a Cremona team in form but missing their best player and scorer Johnson-Odom, the first time this season they will have to play without him. Meanwhile tomorrow is also the first occasion that Pistoia can finally field their best available roster if LaQuintana recovers from a small midweek problem. Considering in addition their traditionally strong home court, the value seems to be with the hosts here.

This is a strange match tonight. On one hand we have Virtus Bologna who after a difficult 2017 with many close defeats and some probably unfair contestations towards head coach Ramagli, they have finally found some stability and serenity winning 6 of their last 7 games taking full advantage of their home court. Bologna though, are heading into tonight's match without A.Gentile who has been their most dominant player with his all around game and key reserve Ndoja whose presence is usually underestimated. Furthermore both Aradori and Lafayette are having some physical issues although they should be able to contribute in some way. As for Pesaro, there is no way to sugar-coat the truth. They remain dead last in the standings, are one of the worse teams of the Serie A and unless they bring some reinforcements, avoiding relegation is going to be difficult. Having said that, there are some bright spots as well. Guard Dallas Moore despite his youg age has been a pleasant surprise for Pesaro and is the second leading scorer of the league while big men Omogbo and Mika have also performed above expectations. Problems arise mostly from the supporting cast as Little's disappointing displays and a paper thin bench depth have really hurt the team. Despite winning just once in their last 8 games, it was a demanding schedule having faced 6 teams of the upper half of the table but have nevertheless gone very close at upsetting both Avellino and defending champions Venezia, only losing at the dying moments in both cases. All things considered, 5.00 for a Pesaro victory seems a bit high here in my opinion.

Tip Preview:
A couple of Serie A2 picks for tomorrow as all other competitions have matches with no value whatsoever. Besides Fortitudo Bologna, Mantova is another team with a barely positive +4 points differential despite a decent 10-7 in the standings and that indicates the many hardly contested wins achieved so far in matches decided in small details that could have really gone either way. Despite sitting 13th in the standings of the Serie A2 East division, Forli are not a bad team. They have a 3 win cushion over the bottom 3 teams, so getting involved in the relegation battle seems unlikely considering also the strength of the roster. Forli have missed starting center Diliegro for 5 matches due to injury earlier this season which probably cost them a victory or two but the team is healthy now. I reckon the bookies are perhaps reading too much into their 0-8 record on the road although in my eyes this is mostly coincidental than a lack of competitiveness when playing away from home. They lost at Piacenza after overtime while both against Fortitudo and Orzinuovi they were defeated by a single basket of difference, so their first victory on the road should come sooner or later. All things considered, 3.73 for a Forli win is good enough to get involved here.

Tip Preview:
A couple of Serie A2 picks for tomorrow as all other competitions have matches with no value whatsoever. Fortitudo Bologna are one of the historical and heavyweight teams of the division and although their 12-5 record so far is good enough for 2nd place along with Montegranaro, it certainly doesn't tell the whole truth. Plenty of ups and downs, inconsistency, a lot of close wins and some embarrassing losses as well have characterized Fortitudo's season so far. Unsurprisingly, their meagre +1 points differential is the second worse among the top 16 teams of the entire Serie A2! To make things worse head coach Boniciolli is absent and recovering from pneumonia, the leader and MVP of the team Mancinelli will miss tomorrow's match because of injury and Legion is on the verge of getting waived by the team and will not partecipate in the game as well. As for their opponents Ferrara, they are sitting just outside the playoff zone with a 8-9 record and Bonacina has recently taken over as head coach after a series of unfortunate results. Ferrara have also been very inconsistent and a couple of ugly defeats on the road strike particularly bad but that's not to say they haven't achieved some impressive wins as well against highly competitive teams like Montegranaro, Treviso and Ravenna. To conclude, Ferrara have been really unpredictable so far and perhaps that's what makes them a dangerous team to play against. As usual, Fortitudo have been really effective at home and have a deep enough bench to cover for the absences but at 4.28 I'm willing to give Ferrara a chance here.

Tip Preview:
Darussafaka are in excellent shape, still undefeated in 5 games for 2018 and certainly one of the big favourites for the Eurocup crown along with Lokomotiv Kuban, Bayern and Kazan. Also they are just one win away from already securing their qualification to the next round and are going in Germany to face Alba Berlin healthy, well-rested and full of confidence. The same cannot be said of their opponents though. While Radosavljevic just returned to action getting a few minutes in German Cup this weekend, starting point guard Silva went down with injury. That means Alba Berlin will have to face Wednesday's game without their backcourt duo of Silva and Butterfield also still on the sidelines. As much as I like Reneses's team I simply can't see them as favourites when they go against an expert team like Blatt's Darussafaka. The value is clearly with the Turks here.

Tip Preview:
It's no secret Orlandina are struggling at the moment having suffered 8 straight losses in all competitions and considering they are practically eliminated from the next round of the Champions League it's only logical their focus shifts to the italian league. Having said that, I doubt they will simply roll over when they face Neptunas tomorrow. In fact they need to turn this situation around sooner rather than later and are in urgent need of finding a good rhythm ahead of the critical matches they will be playing in Italy over the next few weeks. The only way of doing that is by simply playing hard every single game regardless of opponent and competition. Perhaps this will make them even more dangerous for the Lithuanians. As for Neptunas this is clearly a very different team than the one that dominated the first part of the season both on domestic and continental front. 3 players of their starting 5 and indispensable elements of the team, Girdziunas, Butkevicius and Palacios have left the club last month for financial reasons and while Sulskis and Fields were brought in an attempt to strengthen the team in some way, they are clearly not players of the same talent and quality. Neptunas have taken care of some low level opposition in the domestic lithuanian league since then but have lost 4 of their last 5 games in the Champions League as they are trying to adapt to the new situation. Overall a more insidious game for Neptunas tomorrow than what the odds suggest and it's worth taking a chance with Orlandina here.
