Tip Preview:
Two teams that are moving in opposite directions at the moment. After starting the season with an impressive 7-2 record Obradoiro have now suffered 7 consecutive defeats since December and are struggling tremendously getting out of this poor run of form. For Bilbao the situation is completely different. The early disappointing performances led to the dismissal of coach Duran and the hiring of Mrsic while they also brought in big man Devin Thomas to replace the unimpressive Tim Kempton. Results have improved dramatically over the last month going on a 3-2 record with 3 straight wins at home and getting seriously close to upsetting both Gran Canaria and Andorra on the road only losing at the end of hardly fought games. While tonight Bilbao will be missing center Gladness because of injury, the rising of newly arrived Thomas should help cover his absence receiving more playing time. Obradoiro should eventually break this poor run sooner or later but there is nothing here to suggest that they have recovered from their terrible form just yet and the handicap for Bilbao seems small all things considered.

Tip Preview:
A battle between the two surprise-teams of the greek league, Lavrio and Promitheas separated by just one victory in the standings. The visitors Promitheas have experienced a tumultuous December that resulted in a poor 1-3 record and also some internal disciplinary issues that forced the team to part ways with both Evans and ultimately Releford replacing them with Ellis and just recently Murry who will debut today. The new year opened with a great win over AEK and I expect it to be the turning point to better results as the situation has normalised again. While for Promitheas the inevitable slump in form has come, the same is not true for Lavrio. They have kept a consistency of performances throughout the season but logic says they will suffer a dry spell sooner or later after overachieving to a 8-3 record and second place along with Olympiakos. At odds close to 3.00 at the moment I have no issues backing Promitheas in a game between two equivalent teams essentially.

Tip Preview:
Our first bet for 2018 and a tough one for sure. After a terrible 0-7 start, Burgos have strengthened their backcourt with the addition of Jenkins and have shown a steady improvement ever since going on a decent 3-4 record during this period although their last game of 2017 was certainly a step back when they were heavily defeated (76-99) at home against Gipuzkoa. It remains to be seen whether they can bounce right back when they visit an injury stricken Andorra tomorrow. In fact the home team face an emergency at the frontcourt with Diagne and Karnowski adding themselves to the injury list along with Copeland and Burjanadze while Shurna and point guard Albicy are still a doubt for tomorrow and even if they recover in time, will probably not be at their best. At least newly signed Sane will debut although I'm not convinced he can make a significant impact. Truth be told, Andorra have been particularly effective at home with a 5-2 record with both defeats coming in tightly contested games against Fuenlabrada and Baskonia but still this 1.15 for an Andorra victory is absurd considering the precarious physical state of the team. At 5.75 I believe we have to get involved backing Burgos here.

After their horrendous start, Pistoia have had to change considerably their roster replacing Gordon and Kennedy with veterans Ivanov and Diawara and while the former has contributed straight away, the latter has been inactive since last summer and his physical condition and overall impact has yet to be determined. Additionally the home team has Laquintana's absence to deal with and McGee doesn't seem in optimal form yet after his two month spell on the sidelines. A 5th consecutive win in all competitions for Trento in their midweek triumph over Gran Canaria and after signing Dustin Hogue who now has already a couple of matches under his belt and bringing back Gutierrez from injury, they are really beginning to resemble last season's team that surprisingly made it all the way to the finals. Pistoia may have showed some signs of recovery lately with a couple of wins but there are still plenty of question marks surrounding the team and Trento are going full steam now. At outsiders odds we should be backing them to upset Pistoia.

Tip Preview:
Panathinaikos are 3rd in the standings, they have won 6 of their last 7 games and are a perfect 6-0 at home. Yet I believe we should bet against them when they face Maccabi on Tuesday in Athens but let me explain myself. Panathinaikos have a tendency of playing with fire, generating thriller games with 4 of their matches decided literally at the last shot. Fortunately for them, 3 of those were won although their points differential of just +18 despite their overall very healthy 8-4 record is quite revealing. Moreover I can't say I was overly impressed with their last showings. They practically threw away an entire half in each of their last 4 games so consistency of play has certainly been an issue and may become an even bigger one now with Calathes injured. One cannot overstate Calathes' influence on Panathinaikos' game on both ends of the floor. He has been undoubtebly not only the team's MVP but also one of the leading candidates for the Euroleague's MVP as well. He has been simply irreplaceable for the greek team. Maccabi on the other hand are certainly no pushovers. They have just one less victory than Panathinaikos and are vastly improved compared to last season's dreadful team. They are top-3 in both defensive efficiency and rebounding in the Euroleague and with Panathinaikos amongst the worse teams in the rebounding department, this is probably going to be one of the keys of the game. To make a long story short, I expect Panathinaikos are going to have serious problems on both the offensive and defensive end with Calathes missing and if Maccabi limit the second chance points of their opponents, they should have a good opportunity of stealing this game. Only handicap odds at Pinnacle for now but 3.30 is widely available at other bookies as well as far as I can see.

A tough weekend ahead with almost all games priced quite right in Italy, Spain and Greece so I see no reason to get involved but there is a match that caught my eye in the second division in Italy (A2), so extraordinarily we will have a surprise pick from this league. Limits seem decent too as far as I can tell. The game is Aurora Basket Jesi - Pallacanestro Orzinuovi and we are backing the visitors (Orzinuovi) here. Here's why. Jesi are on a 3 game losing streak and things just got even worse with big man Quarisa going down with a serious injury leaving a team anyway short in depth, even shorter. Orzinuovi have been practically a new and vastly improved team this last month with Raffa replacing Olasewere and Strautins coming in on loan from Orlandina. Both new arrivals have been decisive so far and performances have also changed dramatically. Their 2-2 record in this period only tells half the story as both defeats came in hard fought, contested games on the road. At the very least I'm expecting Orzinuovi to be competitive here so this 3.09 seems quite big to me. Notice that the A2 italian division is written as "Lega Nazionale Pallacanestro Gold" at Pinnacle.

Last chance for Paris Levallois to get back into the qualification battle when they face Torino in Italy tomorrow. The season for the French is not going exactly as planned with the team struggling both in the domestic and european front but I still believe they are not as bad as they appeared at times or as their results indicate. They have lost some ground right from the start because of Odom's injury and both Prepelic and Ware missing one game but now everyone is healthy while the latest addition of Leslie gives some much needed help on the wings. Torino are also not scaring anyone at the moment and in fact their impressive 3-0 start in the Eurocup seems like a distant memory with the team succumbing to 4 consecutive defeats since November with an overall 65 points of deficit and some equally disappointing performances in the Serie A during the same period. While it's true they are coming from a big win over Milano on Sunday it remains to be seen if they have recovered definitely from this huge slump in form. In the end looking at the odds, this 4.75 for Paris Levallois seems huge in my eyes considering the circumstances but we should stick to the win only as with the questionable form of the two teams no result would really surprise me.

Two teams that seem to be moving in opposite directions at the moment. After getting all injured players back and replacing Dillard with Goss, PAOK have improved in their last games and slowly but steadily are beginning to find some consistency, moving closer to the top-4 in the standings where they belong. While PAOK are coming from 3 straight wins though, Koroivos have suffered 3 consecutive defeats by a combined 71 points of margin in an admittedly tough schedule which isn't getting any easier with PAOK, Panathinaikos and Promitheas following next. In any case Koroivos are a pretty limited team talent wise with one of the lowest budgets in the league and together with Kymi and Panionios I expect them to fight to avoid relegation appearing to be the 3 weakest teams in the greek A1 so far. Much like Murcia in our midweek pick, we are similarly backing a PAOK team in clear recovery who has shown a steady progress lately against a weaker opponent who has struggled in the last few weeks. The 3,5 point spread PAOK has to cover seems smaller than expected all things considered.

Tip Preview:
Murcia's season so far has been plagued by small or serious injuries and remarkably just 2 players (Kloof and Tumba) have played all 6 games in the Champions League. Unsurprisingly consistency has been an issue and this 2-6 record in the competition is not indicative of Murcia's true strength. Despite their physical problems they have still showed a competitive face and in fact 12/16 of their matches were decided by 6 or less points. Juventus' start to the season has been a nightmare losing their first 10 games in all competitions before recovering somehow in November and getting a few wins. It has to be noticed though that all 3 wins in the lithuanian league came against teams in the lower half of the table while they recorded 2 very close home victories in the Champions League over 2 completely out of form Dinamo Sassari and Hapoel Holon sides. Moreover they are going in the tomorrow's game against Murcia without the injured Samenas and Bickauskis while newly signed Gaines is uncertain if he will debut because of some paperwork issues. I really think last week's break has been beneficial for Murcia to recover physically and mentally from the continuous games and they are coming after two easy wins in the spanish league over Bilbao and Estudiantes. I'm expecting them to continue their progress tomorrow prevailing over Juventus. No idea why but no odds yet at Bet365, William Hill and several other bookies too.

The Czechs may have lost NBAer Satoransky as well as Fenerbahce's Vesely for these qualification games but at least they can count on a couple of key players that missed the last Eurobasket for various reasons. In fact Pumprla but most importantly Schilb and Balvin are present now providing experience (Pumprla), much needed depth at the center position (Balvin) and playmaking skills (Schilb). Finland have lost by far their 3 best players (Koponen, Markkanen and Salin) and while their starting five of Wilson, Koivisto, Huff, Murphy and Kotti is decent enough, their bench depth seems quite thin despite Kanervo's huge game against Bulgaria in the previous round. To sum up, at least on paper it seems this will be a very balanced, contested match and anything over 2.30 for the Czechs is good enough to get involved.

Another World Cup qualification game and while opening odds around of 2.60 at Pinnacle seemed pretty close to reality to me, they have kept rising since yesterday and now at 3.80 for Turkey's victory are just too good to ignore. Both teams have overcome their opponents in their opening games with convincing performances and now go against each other in a few hours to conquer first place in the group. Ukraine brings practically the same team that competed in the Eurobasket with just one significant addition in Monaco's Gladyr while Turkey will have the absences of NBAers Osman and Korkmaz to cope with and Erden's availability seems uncertain after he left the game with Latvia because of injury. Nevertheless I still think this is a competent team and Turkey's coach Sarica has been doing an excellent job with his club Besiktas and the national team alike. No doubt Ukraine have a slight advantage here but at 3.80 it's worth taking a chance with Turkey.

This is a World Cup qualification game and in any other day Croatia would have been the big favourite but these are not normal circumstances. In fact most NBA and Euroleague players will be missing from their respective national teams today and that levels the playing field somewhat considering Croatia only brings 3/12 of the roster that competed in the Eurobasket 3 months ago (Kruslin, Planinic and Ramljak) while the rest of the spots are taken by various journeymen playing in medium to low level european leagues. Netherlands on the other hand won't be affected as they don't have any NBA or Euroleague player at the moment and make no mistake. This is a competent and organized team that has made significant progress over the last few years. They will be relying on Norel who is having a fantastic season with Gipuzkoa in Spain, Murcia's Kloof and complemented nicely by Schaftenaar(Faros), Hammink(Bilbao), Franke(Trento) and Leiden's De Jong, one of the few players that actually play basketball domestically in the Netherlands. Considering Croatia's lack of cohesion as this is the first time this group of players will actually be playing together but also their serious absences, I fully expect the Netherlands to challenge for the victory here tonight.

Tip Preview:
If there is one team that has not reaped what they sowed so far in Serie A, that's Bologna. Their mediocre 3-4 record doesn't reflect what has been a top-5 team in both offensive and defensive efficiency while their +8.7 differential in efficiency rating is the third best in the league. So how can this 3-4 record be explained? Quite simple actually. All of their losses came in the last few seconds or even the last shot of tightly contested games and bad luck certainly played a big part in the final results. Brindisi on their part with a 1-6 record have struggled as expected and have already added Nic Moore to run the point guard replacing Anthony Barber in an effort to change their fortunes while they are still considering other possible changes as well. Randle has unfortunately been limited by physical issues and decided to retire after this game, Tepic has been a shadow of the player that we watched last season and Oleka really seems out of his depth with the only positive note being center Cady Lalanne. Brindisi need to make some tough decisions and make them fast. I reckon there is simply too big a difference in quality between these two teams and Bologna should prevail here one way or another with 1.83 being generous enough to get involved.

Tip Preview:
Major injury crisis at Reggiana. As if losing Cervi, Nevels and Vene wasn't enough, newcomer Chris Wright and Reynolds were also added to the injury list making a difficult situation almost hopeless. They are now left with just two big men and a couple of youngsters will probably have to be brought in from their youth team to complete the roster. After a tough couple of weeks at the start of the season, Cremona have really upped their game recording 3 wins and only losing against defending champions Venezia and highly ambitious Torino on the road. Coach Sacchetti has once again build a fast, run and gun team and with Reggiana's lack of athleticism at their backcourt I expect in form Johnson-Odom is going to have a field day tomorrow. Reggiana have already pulled a couple of miracles before but I wouldn't bet on another one. All things considered the 5 point handicap Cremona need to cover looks more than fair to me.

Tip Preview:
The New Orleans Pelicans took advantage of arguably the softest schedule of any team in the NBA to climb up to 5th in the Western Conference but their stay should be short-lived. Not surprisingly they have a dreadful 0-6 record when facing any top-8 team of either conference. In fact besides the expected dominance of all-star duo of big men Cousins-Davis there haven't been any other bright spots in a poorly assembled and unbalanced team. The Toronto Raptors on the contrary have faced one of the harshest schedules and after a slow start they have steadily improved over the last couple of weeks going on a 6-3 run to reach 3rd place in the Eastern Conference and confirming they are easily a top-4 team in the east while they are coming to New Orleans after a convincing win on the road over the Houston Rockets. No reason not to support the Raptors here in outsider's odds.

Tip Preview:
Two teams that are dominating and are still undefeated in their respective domestic leagues although it has to be said that the Belgian league is much more competitive than the Czech one. Same 2-3 record in the Champions League and the similarities don't stop there as both Oostende and Nymburk have built their teams around a core of internationals players. Benda, Hruban, Pumprla and Bohacik for the Czechs and Salumu, Mwema and Kesteloot for the Belgians. Oostende have been dangerous on the road beating Bonn and losing by just one point at Nanterre while Nymburk have already lost twice at home against Besiktas and Nanterre only defeating a poor Aris team who are really struggling away from home. The Czechs may have the home court advantage tonight but for all intents and purposes I see nothing here that justifies this set of odds. We are backing Oostende both for the win and the 8 point handicap.
