Tip Preview:
Both teams are good matchup for each other, therefore it's always hard to foresee a free-flowing match with these two in action as both are defensively strong in the areas where today's opposition's strengths lie. In general, there are more similarities than differences between Dzukija and Lietkabelis as both are tall and physically strong teams who usually prefer defence to offence. Moreover, both are being coached by old Yugoslavian school tacticians with Slovenian Urlep in charge for Dzukija and serbian Canak responsible for Lietkabelis' results.
Here I expect a tough and close basketball game with a quite low final scoreline. I made the same type of forecast a few weeks ago and then the preview fully confirmed itself but the tip still wen lost due to wild scoring over the last couple of minutes. Hepefully, this time the history won't repeat itself and unders will come crashing in.

Tip Preview:
Zalgiris are playing divine basketball at the time having won 11 consecutive games in the Euroleague and LKL altogether. Their 6 Euroleague wins in a row made their fans' wildest dream come true as Kaunas jumped in the Euroleague train for a second consecutive season. That's a huge achievement for low budget Zalgiris who had never played in the modern Euroleague playoffs prior to the season 2017-2018. Zalgiris are simply enjoying themselves at the time and their confidence is sky-high, so hosting Nevezis will have a tough evening. Nevezis have lost their last 10 LKL games and have been winless since the 13th of January. Although I like current Nevezis with Dimavicius in charge a bit more than I did previous Nevezis when Cvirka was still coaching them, Nevezis have changed little since. The main issue is their combo guards Parker and Hairst get too much freedom and often play for the stats way more than they do for the team, which has already caused Nevezis a few disappointing losses this season. However, Nevezis are very short of players who could outplay their straight rivals one-on-one, so head coach Dimavicius need the American combo duo on the court no matter what is happening as the two are the only decent creators, scorers, and assist makers in the team. However, Zalgiris should take care of Hairst and Parker, so as soon as they are no more the engine of the team's offence Nevezis will start choking for points. Nevezis simply can not offer anything worrisome offensively to Zalgiris, so the latter should take the game control into their hands early and win this road match without much fuss.

Tip Preview:
Pieno Zvaigzdes are playing their very best season ever. I am not a fan of head coach Petrauskas but I do admire what he's doing this season in Pasvalys as his team are doing incredibly well. With 84.1 points per game Pasvalys are among the best scoring sides in the league and that's a bad news for the slow and predictable veterans of Skycop. Pieno Zvaigzdes are playing with incredibly high tempo and they are a quick running team. There's no way Skycop can keep the pace up with Prienai, and every Pasvalys steal nearly warrants fast break points. Ksistof Lavrinovic is doubtful for Prienai, so another Pasvalys advantage could be on the frontcourt, especially using power machine Gates.
Skycop are very experienced but I don't believe Prienai have enough athleticism an stamina to keep the race for a win alive for the entire 40 minutes, therefore Pasvalys are much heavier topdogs for this game than it may seem at first glance.

Tip Preview:
Siauliai continue to fight like lions in spite of being the worst team in Lithuania's club basketball top flight an their basketball is very attractive. Well, that's when we mean their offence, because defensively head coach Sireika's men have stopped showing any kind of effort and skills. With 90.5 points allowed per game Siauliai are currently being ranked as the very worst team in the league in the defensive category and watching them play it's hard to get an impression they are going to improve anytime soon. No, Siauliai are defensive corpses and they'll finish the season as such. For instance, they allowed their irvals to score 100 points in 3 of their last 4 games.
Juventus are much more talented than Siauliai but they are playing as a really stupid team. When they catch the wind they can be a handful to play against but the thing is they also often hand opposition too many baskets both in slow possession game and in transition. Juventus love to play offensive games and can be very efficient in this area but their defence is not convincing at all and Juventus are leading in the league in turnovers per game with 14.96 turnovers per match. Siauliai are young and fast team, so they should get a lot of easy buckets by simply taking advantage of unforced turnovers Juventus are likely to commit against the hosts.
While other bookies keep the total of this game at around 175 or more, Bet365 is still holding the total at 168. The advantage of this mistake should be used, hence me picking over 168 for the match.

Olympiacos started the season very well but their wheels stopped spinning two months ago and after losing 8 times in their last 10 games the Greek giants lost their last speck of chance to advance to the playoffs. It became clear Olympiacos would not make further after the Thursday results, so this game is barely a motivation booster for them. The moods in the camp are obviously not good and I guess no one really wants to play this miserable game against the worst regular season team from Istanbul.
The situation is very different for the visitors. They have long known they are not a playoff side and playing in the Euroleague was like a good level playground to prepare themselves for the Turkish League battles. Darussafaka are going to Piraeus to take on one of the best legacy teams in Europe in this century in attempt to close up the Euroleague season with a nice win or a strong performance at least. Just like for the Reds, this game means nothing to the Turkish side but their motivation should be greater for this last round clash for some obvious reasons. Besides, Darussafaka have been playing decent over the last month, regardless of the fact road games is not their forte in general.
I believe the Green-Blacks can give a test to the Red-Whites in this trash type of game, hence the call.

Tip Preview:
Real Madrid and Zalgiris Kaunas share a lot in common as both teams are built on tradition and both contribute significantly to the prestige of their local basketball schools. The difference between the two becomes evident when we start comparing the wealth and individual class of the players possessed by these two teams - in this aspect Real emerges to overtake Zalgiris by their modern and light-fast basketball car. However, just like CSKA have nothing really left to play for in the last round home match against Vitoria, Real have no more motivation left for this home event against Zalgiris. While CSKA are still notorious for their strong attitude to win all the games they play and thus demonstrate the mentality of the Red Army they represent, Real Madrid have shown little interest in not important matches they have played over the last few years. The unwritten rule about Madrid is they bring their best only when they need to and tend to rest the veteran stars when the situation does not require maximum result. This game is exactly such a type of match.
The game is still incredibly important to Zalgiris Kaunas. Indeed, that's their most important game of the season by a mile. Zalgiris had been having a very bumpy season with lots of injuries and morale crisis but they have been playing very well of late since all the layers but Jankunas got healthy. They haven't lost a game since falling down before Neptunas in Klaipeda on the third of March and have registered five consecutive Euroleague wins in the period, including also two impressive morale-boosting trashing LKL wins over the league top sides Rytas and Lietkabelis. Zalgiris must absolutely win this game in Madrid if they want to prolong their Euroleague season and gift another fairy-tale story to their superior fans. Zalgiris are not so much behind the hosts in regard to the chances of winning this clash, for this game at least.
If Real Madrid rest some of their stars and Zalgiris demonstrate another defensive masterpiece like they did in their recent road wins against Maccabi and Olympiacos then Zalgiris can really go after Real's scalp this time just like I am going after long odds.

It is really hard to win in Moscow and it's been this way for many years. CSKA have a lot of talent and wealth, and they are often supported by the referees and winning against the Russians on their home soil is a very tough task no matter what we are talking about. However, what's atypical for this game unlike for many other CSKA games is that CSKA don't actually need anything from it. They have virtually secured the second place in the regular season standings no matter what the other games outcomes will be in Round 30. Besides, CSKA often experience a decline in shape and motivation at this period of the season. Therefore, it's kind of hard to expect a very strong and solid performance from the Moscow soldiers who may also rest some key players in this match too.
Baskonia are in contrary have everything to die for in this game. As you may know this year the EuroLeague Final Four will be held in Vitoria and the Basque side just have to leave it all and more to get a berth in this huge event. Baskonia would not be killed by their fans if they screwed up in the playoffs but falling out of the competition in the regular season would be a huge blow for the hosts of this season's Final Four. All it takes for the Basks to enter the playoff stage is to win in Moscow - it's just as simple as that. Of course, there are other scenarios by which Baskonia could also expect to clinch a playoff berth but no team like an idea of depending on others as long as they can take care of their own destiny themselves. Therefore, the form and motivation factors, which are both very important in top level professional sports, are on the visitors' side this time.
I am ready to try out my luck by siding with the Spaniards as the underdogs of the match.

A huge LKL game will be played on Saturday in the Siemens Arena in Vilnius with local Rytas hosting Neptunas Klaipeda. Both teams have had a lot of moments of premium class rivalry over the most recent years and both possess some bitter feelings towards each other. Rytas are arguably a bit better team and what makes them slight favourites in this particular match is the home court advantage. On the other hand, Neptunas love to play against the odds and they have taken Rytas' scalp multiple times in Vilnius over the last few seasons, so taking Rytas as favourites might be a bit risky bet. Neptunas were humiliated by Rytas 72-86 in the Lithuanian King Mindaugas Cup in the middle of February, which only makes Neptunas' motivation even bigger before this game. As you can see I am not a big liker of choosing between the sides this time.
What I am a fan of is taking overs. Both sides love to play fast tempo and both convert opposition's turnovers into fast break points very well. Both can exploit each other's weaknesses well and a big number of fouls should be expected at the both ends of the court to lead to many free throw attempts. Finally, both sides dwell on the three point line and can shoot threes in series.
I believe a beautiful game will be played and the fans in the Siemens will witness a quality game with very decent scoring.

Tip Preview:
This Euroleague games is extremely important to both teams. Both need wins desperately to stay alive in the race for a playoff berth and both can't afford any more slip-ups. Olympiacos are playing this game at home driven by a desire to avenge Zalgiris a loss in the Euroleague quarterfinals last season, and these two are factors on the Reds' side. Zalgiris' ace cards for the game will be their good current shape and better team chemistry, and I would also address better coaching. Olympiacos head coach Blatt is a well-respected specialist but he doesn't seem to have found a place within the Greek giants and the players don't seem to trust him either, which on its turn doesn't make Olympiacos into one tough fist. Playing at such a high level as Euroleague it's a very bad feature. On the other hand, Zalgiris left behind their injury woes as only Jankunas is doubtful for the game in Piraeus. The rest of the players are healthy and Zalgiris are enjoying a four-game winning streak in the Euroleague, while Olympiacos can't count on their consistency in shape having won only trice in their last five.
I believe the dropping odds on Zalgiris are for a reason this time, hence me siding with the multiple Lithuanian champions.

Siauliai and Zalgiris are really playing great at the moment, so I expect a good game at the Siauliai Arena. Quality-wise, these two teams are nowhere near eah other as Zalgiris are the kings of the country and Siauliai are minnows living on a small budget. However, Siauliai are an offensive-minded team and head coach Sireika has tought them to play for the fans, especially taking on big teams. Zalgiris are a bit tired following a double Euroleague week and Siauliai will probably score more points than most could expect from them. On the other hand, Siauliai have nothing to offer for Zalgiris defensively. These sides have met four times this season yet and Zalgiris have averaged 99.75 points scored per game against Siauliai. Siauliai are very weak defending the paint and Zalgiris are very strong attacking the area, so another dismal match awaits Siauliai.
I believe in an overish scoreline, hence the call.

25 games played Lietkabelis have a record of 15 wins and 10 losses, while Dzukija' record is much poorer with only 8 wins in 24 games. Judging by the win record alone one could think Lietkabelis are clear favourites and there won't be much rivalry in this game. The bookmakers world is pretty much of the same opinion favouring Lietkabelis with a solid 9-point handicap. However, I can't agree with it as the game can go either. Dzukija have already proven this season they are very uncomfortable rival for Lietkabelis because of their physical strength, good work ethics and solid defensive culture implemented into the Dzukija team by Slovenian head coach Urlep. On the other hand, Lietkabelis possess more or less the same virtues as Dzukija, being a tall and strong team who usually don't rush tings on the court. Lietkabelis are playing Yugoslavian basketball nowadays and Serbian head coach Canak's hand is well felt watching Lietkabelis play. I believe a slow and tactical game will be played in the Cido Arena where the teams will prefer defence and slow tempo to offence and high tempo.
The teams have played twice in the LKL this season yet. Lietkabelis won a dogfight at home in the early season 71-69 but Dzukija responded with an 85-68 home win right before the year turnaround. As you can see, 140 was totalled in the first game and 153 in the second. Both teams are good matchup for each other and are strong defensively in the areas where the oppositte side's offensive strength lies. Therefore, unders is my call for this event.

Skycop and Lietuvos Rytas have got many familiar names on their rosters but these two sides are of a different calibre and thus it's hard to expect a close match in Prienai. The only area Skycop are not any worse than Rytas is experience, because experience-wise Skycop are just as good as Zalgiris Kaunas for example. The Lavrinovic brothers, Lukauskis, Grant, Janavicius, Gecevicius - all these players make Skycop a very dangerous unit offensively. However, the physicality and transition defence is what often kill Skycop as they have too many veterans on the team who just can't defend anymore. That's a bad news taking on Rytas who are very quick and explosive as a team and they always try to keep the tempo up facing a slow team like Prienai. There's little doubt Rytas will put a lot of pressure on the ball in this game going for steals and fast break points right after every Skycop turnover with new point guard Needham making a debut for Rytas in this road game. The Skycop veterans will show more motivation against Rytas than they sometimes do playing smaller sides from the lower part of the standings but I believe in Prienai's offence only, because defensively they are just doomed to failure against Rytas' explosiveness, speed and individual skills.
I am taking overs for the match.

This match means nothing to Herbalife in regard to positioning in the standings but it does mean a lot to Olympiacos as they continue to break through for the playoffs. The Euroleague competition is very fierce this season, so we'll probably have to wait until the very last round to find out all the playoff brackets participants. Therefore, any win is very precious for all the playoff contenders.
Logically thinking, it should seem like Olympiacos will have a walkover in the park visiting the Canary Islands, especially as the Reds from Piraeus won the fist leg of this tie at home 98-77. However, Gran Canaria are no more a team of pushovers they were under two previous head coaches Maldonado and Garcia. Newly signed Martinez is making them play much slower and smarter basketball and Gran Canaria's defence has become much better since his arrival. They have been really excellent defensively in all their games with Martinez, even in this week's 93-64 Euroleague road loss at Barcelona. Barca hit 19 threes in that game including tough ones, which killed the visitors. The Canarians are playing much better defence inside the paint though, which can make Olympiacos life troublesome as they don't have so many great perimeter shooters as Barca do, and spiritual leader Spanoulis is out indefinitely. The other side of the coin is how efficient Gran Canaria can be on offence themselves, because Olympiacos are great defensively and the islanders' offence is very predictable and easy to read. Besides, they don't have individually strong players to give them a push when team offence is deadly stuck, so I think the hots will be experiencing more difficulties offensively rather than defensively during the match.
I don't expect an entertaining game at the Gran Canaria Arena and unders get my deep interest this time.

Tip Preview:
Bayern were making a lot of noise in the Euroleague in the midseason but 5 losses in the last 6 games signal a major drop in the team's shape. Bayern are still a group of fighters and I believe in a very bright future scenario for this big name German club, but for now it seems like they have hit the wall. Besides, with 12 wins in 27 games played the Bavarian guys are out of realistic chances and hopes to enter the Top 8 and get into the playoff train. According to the statements coming from the coaching staff and the players the team never even had a big ambition to make it into the playoffs this season. The Bayern camp describe the season as a very successful one, which is true in fact, and I don't believe they will get very upset even if they lose to Barca in this game.
Barcelona are meanwhile standing fifth in the standings with 16 wins in 27 games. They are just one win away from current fourth place holders Anadolu Efes, who are likely to become the rivals of the Catalan side in the quarterfinal series. The sides are quite even in terms of class and talent in my opinion, so getting the home court advantage is what both sides desperately want now with only 3 Euroleague rounds remaining in the regular season. With Bayern loosening the pressure on the accelerator, Barca have been going from strength to strength this season with Pesic in charge. The legendary coach united the team and made it again into one of the best basketball clubs in Europe. After numerous bleak seasons Barca have enough talent and chemistry to go tall really far in this season's Euroleague, so I believe they are going to Munich with nothing else but a win on their minds after an easy 93-64 home victory over Gran Canaria just two days earlier before this game. I have to note that Bayern lost to Olympiacos on the road 69-89, so momentum is clearly not on the hosts' side either.
I am glad to be able to take Barca as favourites with such a short Asian handicap.

Tip Preview:
The second worst Euroleague side in the standings are hosting one of the best performing teams in the most prestigious tournament. Podgorica have nothing but their dignity to protect, while Anadolu Efes need wins desperately in the dogfight for top places on the ladder. It feels like Podgorica don't have much to offer for the Istanbul money sacks.
Gnerally speaking, I like teams like Buducnost. Such teams are usually not rich and they can't afford to buy star players who could bring them fame but they are based on the basketball pyramid of the country they represent and they typically have a lot of local young players alongside more experienced veterans. Such teams oftentimes lack calibre but they never lack spirit nor dedication. However, when such things start falling apart after a run of losses then things begin to go dark. That's exactly what happened to Buducnost who have lost their last 7 Euroleague matches. Moreover, only 2 out of those 7 games were lost by 8 points and the rest 5 the loss margin was much bigger, so Buducnost are drowning. The excitement and enthusiasm of playing Euroleague basketball were leading them on in the first part of the season but now they are looking like a read-out unit any big raptor is after to take precious points. I have very little faith in Podgorica before the jump ball.
Anadolu Efes lost to CSKA at home 78-80 in a thriller that was a joy to watch. They are sitting fourth in the standings and that's a position to ensure the homecourt advantage before the playoffs. Anadolu Efes have 17 wins on their tally with fifth-sitting Barca having only one win fewer, so any win for either of these two teams is like gold. It's very possible that Barca and Anadolu Efes will make a playoff pair in the quarterfinal brackets, so the homecourt may play a vital role in the series on the road to the Final Four in Vitoria. Therefore, a team like Anadolu Efes will step onto the floor of Moraca with full concentration and great motivation to take this win. Quality-wise, they are much better than Buducnost and a win is needed much more for them. Therefore, taking Anadolu as clear favourites is a very appealing betting selection.

Tip Preview:
Barcelona and Gran Canaria are playing a season that has a totally different taste for each side. Barca are doing extremely well after many years of stagnation and legendary head coach Pesic is the main culprit of their success story. On the other hand, the Canary Islands team have been changing coaches for fun in expectations to get better results but their roster is just not up to the Euroleague level, frankly said.
Having gone a long distance down curvy and bumpy country roads, Barca are demonstrating one of the solidest games in Europe. Pesic found his ways to make the Blaugrana reunited and goal-oriented again. His team are not an offensive machine like Real Madrid, CSKA Moscow or Anadolu Efes, but Barca's defence deserves utmost respect for their defence. Barca are ranked as the second best defensive unit in the Euroleague with 76.4 points allowed and they are also second in the category in the ACB with 75.8. These are impressive numbers for such high scoring leagues. On the other hand, Barca are not as good offensively in the Euroleague with 78 points average. Of course, they should score a little bit more against Gran Canaria but I doubt they will reach the mark of 85 or 90 - not now when Gran Canaria are on an emotion roll after Martinez took the charge from Garcia.
Martinez is a really exceptional coach. For today he remains one of the most underrated head coaches in Europe for my money. His personality is probably not the easiest to deal with but his basketball knowledge is impressive. Gran Canaria are the worst defensive team in the Euroleague in terms of defence with 88.6 points allowed but with Martinez in charge the team started playing smarter immediately. Gran Canaria conceded only 64 in last week's Euroleague 84-64 win against Darussafaka and 76 in the Saturday ACB 85-76 home win over Unicaja. Barca are still fighting for top placing in the standings, so their tight defence will be very hard to break through for the visitors, but the latter could have a lot more success defending their own basketball than trying to score themselves. Although Martinez's men have nothing but pride left to play for this season in the Euroleague, the positive shock that is still there after the takeover of the charge could have a very positive impact on the team's motivation and spirit.
I am taking total points under for this game.

Two European club basketball powerhouses are clashing their horns tonight in Istanbul. This season Anadolu Efes are demonstrating staggering home shape offensively at home, while CSKA Moscow are doing fine wherever they go and it's been so for many consecutive seasons - only dinosaurs can remember the times when CSKA were not a good offensive team. Taking on each other, these two teams both possess some aces in the sleeves.
Anadolu Efes have a very balanced roster. They have great individual backcourt performers in Larkin, Micic and Beaubois, and they have good frontcourt scorers in Dunston, Motum, Moerman and Pleiss, while Simon, Anderson, and Balbay provide reliable long range shooting skills. This season Anadolu Efes are playing extremely well. It's been a long time since they last played such attractive eye-catching basketball, so my hat goes off before them.
Visitors CSKA Moscow can be proud again of being the best scoring Euroleague side, averaging 88.1 points per match. Hackett and Kulagin are injured, so we will see a lot of Rodriguez and Higgins on the court, which is very promising for those who are engaged in taking overs. De Colo is always a threat, and the same could be applied to Clyburn. CSKA will have a lot of trouble defending their own paint in this game, I'm sure, but their aforementioned perimeter stars will be a headache for Anadolu Efes head coach Ataman and his charges on the other side of the court.
All in all, I am quite confident staking the total over on this game, especially as the head-to-head history between these two rivals supports my call strong.

Tip Preview:
The recent head-tohead history between Neptunas and Lietkabelis makes Lithuanian fans expect another thrilling game in Klaipeda. Whenever these two sides have met over the last year, the games are always about solid scoring on the both ends. I don't expect anything else to occur this time in the Svyturys Arena, because the sides are built quite opposite, which makes them very uncomfortable rivals for each other from the defensive prospect.
Neptunas tend to play energetic basketball at home. They are quite aggressive on the ball, pushing the rivals to get steals and run for fast break points. Three pointers is another weapon for Neptunas, which also works quite well. It didn't work at all in the FIBA Champions League playoff series against Hapoel Jerusalem but overall Neptunas a great shooting team. This game is a big chance for them to wash away the bitterness left after the Champions League exit, so I expect to see a very sharp and mtivated version of Neptunas against slow and predictable Lietkabelis.
Lietkabelis are taller and stronger than Neptunas, and their center forwards Dimec and Kupsas are two major threats for Panevezys' defence. Neptunas will have to double the mentioned Lietkabelis centers most of the time, which creates good open looks for three point shooters like Kulvietis, Wilson, Jasaitis, Sinovec etc. Lietkabelis have been incredibly shaky defensively of late, but their offence have stayed very solid for some time. Giedraitis and Jasaitis will take part in this game after missing out for a month, so according to their official website Lietkabelis were going to play this game with all the players available.
I expect a lot of mismatch points and free throws in this game. Hopefully, this time easy basketball shots will be made and the bet won't have a drastically sad outcome as it was a case a day ago when Zalgiris and Pieno Zvaigzdes kept missing layups and free throws for fun, so another over is my call.

Khimki Moscow have won only twice since the beinning of Febraury. In this period they defeated Buducnost 98-90 away from home in the Euroleague on the 7th of February and they also took a 73-72 overtime home win over CSKA on the 4th of March. These two have been the only wins in one month and a half, which shows the team have not been doing well. I though they would be doing bad when I heard they had hired Kurtinaitis once again, because Kurtinaitis is a bad coach. He's much worse a specialist than his precursor Bartzokas. Bartzokas realised that Khimki can be a good defensive team and he built his team on defence. Kurtinaitis is an opposite version to Bartzokas - the Lithuanian has always preferred offence over defence, but playing offence-oriented basketball Khimki are doing much worse than back on those days with defensive Bartzokas in charge. However, Kurtinaitis and Khimki are very eager to get this win in Tallinn, because the Euroleague playoff hopes fading away fast the Muscovites have nothing but the VTB League to concentrate on. A win in the Estonia capital is neccessary in order to get some fresh air after a long run of losses and Khimki have optimism before the game. Shved is in a great shape, and Harrison and Timma are great additions to Khimki's roster. Kalev Tallinn are well-coached this season and their offence is amazing to say the least, particularly playing at home. That being said, Kalev are so much worse than Khimki in all aspects. They are not up to the level of the Khimki stars, so one-on-one defence will be a big headache for Kelev head coach Kairys and his assistents. If Khimki find ways how to stop Kalev's over-achieving offence and get many fast break points they should win this road match for sure.
Khimki won at home in the middle of October when these two sides met in Moscow and I genuinely believe they'll do it again in Tallinn on Sunday. Moreover, I believe they can do it in a very convincing way.

With 7 wins in 22 ACB games Gran Canaria can't be really happy about their current season. The team have thus twice changed their head coach. Maldonado was replaced by Garcia and the latter was replaced by Martinez. I am a big fan and believer in Martinez, who is one of the best head coaches in Europe when it comes to small details. I think Martinez is by far the best selection of all the three aforementioned coaches, so with him in the helm I expect a better run of results for the Canarian club. Defence is first to blame for poor results in the Spanish League and the Euroleague, where Gran Canaria took only 7 wins in 26 games. However, Martinez should improve their defence and his first Euroleague win against Darussafaka was promising in the defensive aspect as his team allowed only 64 points en route to a nice-looking 84-64 home win.
Unicaja lost their deciding EuroCup quarterfinal game in Berlin where ALBA closed the door right before their noses by winning Game 3 in the best-of-three series 79-75. Unicaja led for the majority of that game but ALBA kept on fighting like real lions, hit some crazy shots and pulled out a win in the final quarter. Such losses are always bad for teams' morale, therefore I expect Malaga to be far from their best today at Gran Canaria. I don't believe the visitors will score many points, so defence will be their priority.
In the second decade of this century the total of 173 points has been broken for overs only four times with these two sides taking on each other. Adding the above details into account, I'd say that going under 172.5 is just a great call.
