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.

Tip Preview:
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.

A bad start to the season for Unics Kazan already counting 3 defeats in their first 6 matches played in all competitions and alarmingly they could have easily been more. This is clearly not the Eurocup powerhouse team of previous years. The loss of Pierria Henry was a big blow without any meaningful replacement brought in while the loss of talent and depth across the roster has unavoidably affected early season performances considering also the struggles of Mantzaris and Palsson. 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.

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.

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.

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.

I've been hearing excellent things about Promitheas from Greece. Everything from the organization of the club, their coaching staff, their training facilities and the ownership. After getting promoted to the Greek A1 division a couple of years ago, they took major steps towards establishing themselves into a new basketball reality, last year reaching the domestic league's final against Panathinaikos and playing for the first time in a european competition (Champions League) and this season by making the step up and competing in the Eurocup in which they debuted with a 33 point win in Israel against Maccabi Rishon. Having said that, they didn't transform overnight into a powerhouse and the bookmakers are getting a little carried away by all the hype as Promitheas are facing Monaco tomorrow. The Monegasque led by coach Sasha Obradovic are one of the dark horses in this season's Eurocup as far as I'm concerned. Their 4-0 start of the season is no fluke either and fully expect them to challenge for trophies this year. Much like last week's Partizan pick, the odds should be inverse here. Monaco are clearly the more talented, expert team and their aggressiveness and athleticism should cause troubles to Promitheas at both ends of the floor.

Losing both their first two matches to Brescia and Trento was certainly not the start Reggiana had in mind. They are considered one of the most interesting projects of this season's Serie A and rightfully so in my opinion. After an enormously successful stint at Trento, Maurizio Buscaglia has taken over things at Reggio-Emilia and the recruiting of the team during the summer has been intriguing to say the least. Derek Pardon is practically the only "unknown" of the roster having had no previous experience with european basketball but the rest of the team is composed of highly respected veterans (Mekel, Owens, Odom, Vojvoda, Poeta) and talented players like Fontecchio, Upshaw and Candi looking to take the next step forward in the carriers, who provide a balanced dose of athleticism and skills. Cantu may have started with a victorious debut at Brindisi last week but they are really one of the great unknowns of the league. What makes assessing the true potential of this team so difficult is that is composed almost entirely of young, unproven players with very limited or no experience with high-level european basketball while the average age of the roster is less than 23 years old. That is usually not a good idea and a recipe for wildly inconsistent performances especially at the beginning of the season. In any case, I just can't see them as the favourites going against such an expert team as Reggiana, who I have no doubt in my mind that they will soon find their way.

Tip Preview:
Brescia are probably the hottest team in Italy right now. It's not just the 3 victories in 3 games played but the quality of opposition faced (Reggiana, Milano, Unics Kazan) and manner of their wins as well. It seems these players have been playing together for years and have already developed a nice level of team chemistry and communication. The good news for Brescia don't stop there though as the team has just reinforced the bench with Angelo Warner giving coach Esposito another weapon in his arsenal. Brindisi's start to the season has suffered an early setback with Stone's injury which forced the team to sign another big man in Bogdan Radosavljevic considering their Champions League debut is in less than two weeks. Performances have been fluctuating wildly so far both between matches but also within the same game as well, so conclusions are far from secure at this point although Brindisi should be a solid team as long as they can manage the additional workload of playing in a european competition. Having said that, Thompson's signing who looks more like a scoring guard than a pure playmaker that the team would have needed, does leave some question marks. In any case Brescia at 2.55 are good value here.

Tip Preview:
Something seems to be off at the moment for Italian champions Venezia. One would expect that keeping 9 of their 12 players of last season's roster would at least give them an initial boost in terms of cohesion and consistency but with 4 games already played and a 2-2 record there seems to be much work to be done. Meanwhile Stone's sudden absence from last weekend's match has fueled speculation of alleged discontent from the player and his fate seems up in the air at the moment.
After losing arguably their 3 best players from last season (Landale, Marinkovic and Renfroe), Partizan had plenty of work to do to find adequate replacements but they have actually done a tremendous job during the summer. The arrival of two athletes like Walden and R.Thomas who both have had a breakout season last year were excellent moves but Partizan didn't stop there, adding Parakhouski, Peiners, Gordic and Mosley creating a very competitive, experienced and deep squad. At the helm Andrea Trinchieri's presence is a guarantee and the Serbs have already conquested their first silverware for the season by defeating Cedevita for the ABA Supercup last weekend and will be arriving at Venice in great mood.
All things considered Partizan have to be the favourites here tonight.
