Tip Preview:
Cremona have finally moved in the market bringing in Ethan Happ on loan from Olympiakos but despite being a clear upgrade over both Tiby and Sobin, I'm not convinced it's what the team needed considering his lack of athleticism and long-range shooting. His first couple of appearances coincided with two wins for Cremona over Fortitudo who are struggling on the road and Trento who are in a very delicate position at the moment playing without key-man Aaron Craft, so the next few games will probably be more meaningful to draw conclusions. Trieste's issues seem pretty obvious and these are the poor integration and performance of their new backcourt duo of Elmore and Justice and consequently their dysfunctional offense, dead-last in offensive efficiency producing just over 96 points over 100 possessions. Still, Trieste have competed hard as 6 of their 8 matches were decided in the last seconds despite having faced a brutal schedule so far, clearly the hardest of any other team in the Serie A. Meanwhile Elmore produced his best performance last week against Virtus Bologna and it will be interesting to see if can build on this to jump-start his season especially with Fernandez likely to miss the game. Trieste are good value here at 3.50.

Tip Preview:
Pesaro have somehow managed to avoid relegation the last few years despite having arguably the weakest team in Serie A and will be looking to perform another miracle this season considering their terrible start. The numbers really speak for themselves. Winless after 8 matches, dead-last in defensive efficiency and net rating allowing opponents a whopping 41% from the 3-point arc, worst rebounding team in the league, in fact there are few meaningful statistical categories where they aren't near the bottom. More worryingly, there doesn't seem to be much room for improvement unless the team decides to move in the market which looks unlikely at the moment considering their financial situation. Things only got from bad to worse with Chapman's injury last week. Brescia excel precisely where Pesaro's weakest points are as they possess the most efficient offense in the league and are a very strong rebounding and 3-point shooting team. Moreover with no Eurocup game scheduled next week for Brescia, there isn't a reason for the hosts to preserve energies here. On paper the game seems as lopsided as they come and it's really up to Brescia to cover the 12-point handicap.

Tip Preview:
It has been a wild and unpredictable first two months in the Euroleague, a real minefield from a betting perspective and that's why I decided postponing any picks until some safe conclusions could be drawn. But it's about time for our first bet as Baskonia are visiting Panathinaikos at the OAKA arena. The Greeks have monopolized the news this week with the official return of legendary coach Rick Pitino to the team's bench and the two wins recorded last week after the firing of Pedoulakis have provided much relief as Panathinaikos's campaign was about to derail after the shocking home loss to Alba Berlin. I'm not convinced about all the hype and over-enthusiasm though. Pitino's return is an excellent move but the team has some serious issues to solve mostly on the defensive and rebounding departments while the soft schedule has flattered the Greens's performances so far. Baskonia are arriving at Athens in a good momentum after 3 consecutive wins, possessing the best defense in the Euroleague and can really hurt Panathinaikos on the boards. The Greens like to play on a high tempo which Baskonia should have no problem matching considering their level of athleticism. Overall this is a tough matchup for the hosts who have not presented any proof of reliability and consistency so far to support this kind of odds.

It has been very difficult assessing Trento's true potential this season as their performances have fluctuated wildly from one match to the next and sometimes even in the same game, much like last week's win at Pesaro where Trento surrendered a 20-point lead in less than 4 minutes before escaping somehow with an overtime win. Buducnost may still be searching for their first win in the Eurocup but their 0-6 record can be misleading as they have lost their last 4 games by a combined 7 points of margin, so competitiveness hasn't been an issue and I tend to interpret all these last second losses more like chance rather than a serious underlying problem. Under these circumstances no result would surprise me here as this has all the ingredients for an unpredictable game and in such cases it's usually a good idea siding with the outsiders especially when the price is that good.

Conditioned by various health issues the New Orleans Pelicans are off to a poor 2-7 start but this is a team clearly worth keeping an eye on as their injury list gets empty little by little and not just for the mere presence of top rookie Zion Williamson. Already the return of Favors should help alleviate some of their defensive woes. Speaking of which the Houston Rockets have their own problems to deal with. Last season their start was compromised by some miserable defensive performances forcing the team to bring back defensive guru Jeff Bzdelik but this time there isn't a quick fix on the horizon with Bzdelik on the New Orleans staff. The Rockets have limited an opponent to less than 100 points for the first time this season when they faced the disappointing and short-handed Bulls on Saturday but I'm not convinced of the apparent progress. Their 6-3 record is disguising what has been a very soft schedule for Houston so far while the 3 times they faced a playoff contender (Bucks, Heat and Nets) have failed miserably. The opening Pinnacle odds of 2.65 for New Orleans seemed just about right to me so at 3.18 now, it's a bet.

The San Antonio Spurs have been way too inconsistent through the first 2 weeks of the season, capable of competitive performances playing the powerful Los Angeles teams, close saves against the lowly Knicks and Wizards but also poor showings against the Hawks and most recently the Celtics. Which version of the Spurs is going to appear tonight is anyone's guess but Popovich's team certainly doesn't look unbeatable at the moment and worryingly their defensive efficiency rating is still at the lower half of the league despite the return of Dejounte Murray from injury, continuing last season's trend. The top priority of Memphis for the next couple of seasons is obviously going to be the development of their prized talents Jackson jr. and rookie Ja Morant who has already impressed in his first outings and the accumulation of picks but that doesn't mean they won't be winning games along the way. The Grizzlies have been disappointing in the 3 games they have played on the road so far but then again the Spurs haven't exactly been bullet-proof either and at the current price Memphis are worth a chance here.

Time for our first bet of the season in the NBA and who would have thought a few months ago that the Phoenix Suns would be paying only 2.84 to beat the Warriors at their own arena? Yet here we are. Obviously it all makes sense and the price is actually quite generous too! The Golden State Warriors have changed profoundly this off season with the departures of Durant and Iguodala and the devastating injury to Thompson as they practically lost 3 of their starting five while the addition of Russell seems a very questionable fit next to another ball dominant guard like Curry who is similarly limited on the defensive end. Their start has also been terrible, losing by a combined 47 points of margin to Oklahoma and Clippers before getting their first win over an injury depleted New Orleans. The Suns have certainly been the biggest surprise of this first week of action despite a complicated schedule that included match-ups with Denver, Clippers, Utah and the loss of Ayton to suspension and while a 2-2 record doesn't seem all that special at first glance, their performances and competitiveness left many promises indeed. Will it last? Time will tell but 2.84 looks more than fair when they go against the Warriors tonight.

Riga surprised Mornar Bar in their first game in the Champions League before losing easily in Greece against Peristeri and are now facing a classic team of this competition, the Czechs of Nymburk. The recipe for Nymburk's success remains the same. A hard core of experienced Czech internationals (Bohacik, Hruban, Pumprla, Peterka, Kriz, Benda) with a lot of miles in european competitions complemented this time with a new set of foreign players (Hankins, Dalton, Booker, Rogic and Almeida) with a lot prove on this stage but with a really promising start. Riga's limited roster suffered another blow with Curry's sudden departure due to personal reasons with the team bringing in the unproven Deshon Taylor on a trial. The Latvians are facing a much tougher assignment this time around facing undefeated Nymburk and I'd surprised if they can repeat their first day's success tonight.

Tip Preview:
Badalona were downright disappointing last week in Russia when we backed them to upset Unics who unexpectedly had their best game of the season, so a pretty bad timing for us. The Spaniards bounced back in the domestic ACB last Satuday with a surprising win over Gran Canaria on the road and are again involved in another Eurocup match tonight in what has been a particularly demanding stretch of schedule for Badalona. In fact this will be their third game in six days with trips from Barcelona to faraway Kazan, from there to the Canary Islands and now back home to Barcelona. That's a sequence of trips of more than 13.000 km travelled last week, so physical condition is going to be key here. Cedevita are already at the crossroads, still winless after 4 matches and another defeat will probably be fatal. They have certainly not been as bad as their 0-4 record would suggest though. All defeats came in tightly contested encounters and it must be extremely frustrating to have nothing to show after 4 competitive performances. On the other hand, Cedevita may use this series of losses as further motivation to compete harder and at least that was the case on Saturday when they recorded a huge win over Partizan in the Adriatic League. I believe context and manner of defeats are more meaningful here than Cedevita's plain 0-4 record and clearly overlooked by the bookmarers in what should be another tight game. The Slovenians are really worth backing here for any price over 2.50.

Obradoiro may have begun the season with only one win (over Bilbao) after 5 games but their schedule hasn't been the most comforable having already faced Barcelona and Real Madrid at home and visited in-form Zaragoza and Tenerife on the road. They have struggled on the defensive end but that was to be expected as their main weapon will once again be their prowess from the 3 point line which can make them unpredictable when the shots are going in especially to teams with a less than optimal defensive efficiency. Murcia have certainly not distinguished themselves in that regard as they are a team that plays at above average pace, possess some lethal shooters but have also some pronounced defensive vulnerabilities. The rebounding battle will probably be the key here. If Obradoiro show some improvement in this area and control the tempo of the game, they will stand a serious chance of escaping with the victory. In any case the price is too big to ignore here.

To bring further misery Kazan have recently lost Morgan to injury and his presence is doubtful for tonight. Speaking of injuries, Badalona have not had an easy start either seriously affected by physical issues with Morgan, Lopez-Arostegui, Zisis and Harangody missing more or less time while Dawson and Birgander are also out long-term! Nevertheless they have still registered 3 confidence boosting wins out of their last 4 matches these last couple of weeks and will be going in Russia in a better mental and physical state. Red-hot Prepelic seems set for another great performance considering Kazan's suspect perimeter defense and all things considered Badalona are certainly worth a bet here.

The first day of the Champions League begins tonight and the game in Latvia between Riga and Mornar Bar is the one that has mainly caught my eye. It appears the Latvians have proceeded in a drastic budget cut this season, dropping out of the VTB league and constructing an entirely new team in which the name of veteran Janis Blums is immediately recognisable although past his best now while the rest of the roster doesn't really promise much in terms of competitiveness. Mornar Bar have assembled a very experienced squad with an average age of nearly 30 years old, a lot of perimeter firepower in their backcourt and veterans like Pullen, Bjelica, Markota, Needham who have seen and played a million battles. I really expect them to have too much here for Riga but as this is only the first day which can always tricky for the favourites, let's stick to 2 units.

Cantu came right back to earth these last couple of weeks losing their games to Reggiana and Venezia by a combined 47 points of margin while we witnessed all the problems that can arise by playing with a roster composed mostly of young players with no previous experience with european basketball. A lack of basketball fundamentals on both ends of the floor, no identity, no team cohesion and individualistic plays (dead last in assist ratio so far) pretty much describe Cantu's current state. The schedule doesn't get much easier though with Trento coming to town in need of getting back on track after their poor showing at Brescia last week. Trento are a clear playoff contender again this season, possess much more talent and expertise than Cantu and should have been the clear favourites here.

It seems we are constantly backing teams that are facing Cremona lately but as long as the odds permit it, that's the sensible thing to be doing. Need I repeat my opinion about Cremona? I guess probably not! There is no way to sugarcoat it. They have been struggling these last couple of weeks and their frontcourt is crying out for help. The timing could not be worse for them too as they are facing a Milano team who after having lost twice already in their first 4 matches, they simply do not have the luxury of relaxing. They are also boosted by the return of one of the best european centers, Arturas Gudaitis who after several months in the sidelines will make his seasonal debut tomorrow. Milano have not been consistent by any means and as most of the teams this early in the season are still a work of progress but the difference in quality and the poor form of Cremona makes me think that they will have a comfortable evening. The -5.5 point spread seems well within their capabilities.

Tip Preview:
Trieste are still looking for their first win but the schedule has not been kind to them having already played to Venezia and Milano on the road and visiting Sassari today in another tough away game. I categorize the home loss to Varese mostly as an anomaly and not representative of Trieste's true potential which I believe will come to the surface as the season progresses and new players get more integrated into coach Dalmasson's system. Sassari are on a 5 game winning streak to start the season although it's worth noting that 3 of them came either in overtime or in the dying moments of those games. That's not to take something away of Sassari's merits which I consider a top-4 team in the Serie A but there is an old saying in basketball. Nothing is as good or as bad as it seems in the first few games of a season, which I think applies to both teams here. Obviously Trieste getting their first win here it's a longshot but one that it's worth taking at the current price. Notice the early start at 16:00 GMT.

Tip Preview:
Reggiana confirmed their superiority last week, recording a comfortable win at Cantu and at the current odds I don't see why we shouldn't be backing them again as they face Cremona at home this time. We have already talked a couple of times about Cremona and my opinion of them hasn't really changed that much. They barely defeated Treviso a couple of weeks ago in a closely fought game that went down to the last shot but weren't as lucky last Sunday losing on the road to a pretty limited Virtus Roma side. Josip Sobin who was recently signed to replace the disappointing Darrell Williams doesn't seem like a real upgrade at the center position and I have the impression that sooner or later Cremona will have to move again in the market. Reggiana should be even bigger favourites tomorrow as far as I'm concerned.

Tip Preview:
Initially I had no intention of getting involved with this game but as the prices for Zaragoza's win kept rising since yesterday for no apparent reason, I had to reconsider. The initial 1.52 at Bet365 was perhaps a little short but at 1.89 that has reached now at Pinnacle is instead more than fair. Despite suffering their first defeat of the season last week, Zaragoza have had an impressive start combining a suffocating defense with a quick style of play on the offensive end. I have some doubts whether Betis have the athletic ability to keep up. Betis's only victory came at the expense of a decimated by injuries Badalona team while their defense has allowed 90, 88 and 95 points respectively in their first 3 matches for a terrible 127.5 of defensive rating, worst in the league by far. Winning away from home is never an easy task in the ACB but Zaragoza's price justifies the risk of backing them here.
