Tip Preview:
Greece somehow managed to avoid a very embarrassing early exit in this Eurobasket, winning against a Poland team playing without a key player like Slaughter but the truth is they don't convince anyone at the moment. Their problems (bad pick and roll defense, poor shooting, dubious coach, bad dressing room atmosphere just to name the most serious ones) seem beyond repair at this point considering the short time frame between the matches and I expect Lithuania will find a way to expose Greece's weaknesses. The Lithuanians have been their usual shelves in this tournament. Competent, consistent and dependable. They have recovered well from their opening day surprise defeat to Georgia to record 4 straight comfortable wins and appeared as solid as always. While it is true that a knock out, do or die game like this has a few particularities, I believe the Greeks are practically looking for a miracle here to overcome a much superior Lithuania team.

Really tough losses yesterday with Belgium and Latvia at opening day losing both our handicap bets in the final seconds but we move on. After Russia's new win I reckon the bookies are slightly overrating them again here today in their matchup with Latvia. Relying on their tough defense Russia have kept Belgium at bay but their offense is really struggling at the moment with both Fridzon and Vorontsevich really cold from the arc. Besides, Latvia with Porzingis in incredible form is on a whole other level offensively although they need a couple of their role players like Meiers and Smits to step up to become even more dangerous moving forward. There might be another bet later today but I need to check some info first guys, so keep it in mind.

After beating hosts Turkey in a dramatic opening game, Russia have surprisingly upset Serbia too in a similar fashion. As I mentioned in my Eurobasket preview this Russia is a competent but inconsistent team, capable for the best and the worst and probably more dangerous when they play as outsiders as was the case in their first two matches. "The worst" part has not made an appearance yet but I wouldn't be surprised if tomorrow surfaces again when they face Belgium as the strong favourites this time. After handling Great Britain in their opener, Belgium were demolished by Latvia in the second game but not much changes for them as they won the game they should have won and lost against a far superior team. They may not have a star like Russia's Shved but are an uncomfortable, insidious team to play against and I still believe they can make some noise in the group.

In their opening game Hungary came close to a huge upset, pushing Croatia all the way even leading by a point entering the 4th quarter despite Hanga's injury that forced him to miss the entire second half. In the second match against Montenegro, they were not as competitive but the crucial game for them is tomorrow facing the Czech Republic as the winner will probably take the last ticket and advance to the next phase. The Hungarians have showed an obvious difficulty getting easy points so far and both Hanga and Allen will have to step up now if they are to beat the Czechs. Still, I reckon they have not really much to fear from their next opponent as with the exception of Satoransky and perhaps Auda, the rest of the roster plays in less competitive leagues and has limited international experience. I believe the Czechs are getting massively overrated by the bookies here.

Tip Preview:
Greece have prevailed comfortably against Iceland despite a dreadful second quarter but most of the problems they faced during their preparation games were evident yet again including a bad pick and roll defence and defensive rebounding (Iceland captured 14 offensive rebounds). At least they shot a decent 42% from the arc but I'm not convinced this is sustainable against teams with a better defense like their next opponent and considering they lack consistent shooters in their backcourt. Moreover Sloukas who is a key player for Greece appears entirely out of form and this is certainly a cause of concern.
France have fallen victim to a surprise in their opening game against the hosts Finland, proving that they have yet some issues to resolve, most important being the physical conditions of Diot and Seraphin. Perhaps this defeat though will make the French face the match versus Greece with bigger concentration and a sense of urgency as another defeat would complicate their path to the next round.
To sum up, I reckon the easy opening win probably flattered this Greek team considering how weak Iceland appeared and I'm expecting them to have a hard time facing France.

Serbia's hopes of winning the Eurobasket took another considerable blow after coach Djordjevic announced that both Nedovic and Kalinic will eventually miss the tournament. That comes after the exclusion of Teodosic, Markovic, Bjelica and Jokic earlier this summer. This means that Milosavljevic, Guduric, Micic and Lazovic were all included in the final roster and at least a couple of them will have an upgraded role. I'm still convinced this Serbia is amongst the serious candidates for gold mainly because of this team's great cohesion and chemistry on the court. That said, I reckon Latvia will give them a tough game here. I have made my thoughts on Latvia widely known by now, so I won't repeat myself. Given this is the first official match for both teams it makes sense to start cautiously with our staking, so 2 units instead of the usual 3.

As you can probably tell if you read my Eurobasket preview, I hold this Latvia team in high regard so seeing their odds for Outright Winner at 51.00 I was surprised. Pinnacle have been quick to correct the initial 43.00 at around 19.00 but others have not. So no reason not to take advantage.
There are obviously plenty of things I like about Latvia. A competent coach in Ainars Bagatskis, an NBA star in Kristaps Porzingis and a handful of quality players like Janis Strelnieks, the Bertans brothers (Dairis & Davis), Janis Timma, Rolands Smits and Martins Meiers compose the core of this team while veterans Janis Blums and Kristaps Janicenoks will provide depth coming from the bench.
The D group in which they partecipate leaves hopes to go as high as 2nd (assuming Serbia comes 1st) and in that case they will probably avoid Spain and most likely Croatia in the round of 16. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. The key is obviously avoiding 4th place in Group D as that makes the road to the Quarter Finals much more accessible.
Downsides of this Latvia team? Sure, there a couple that actually worry me. An extra pure point guard would have surely helped (despite Dairis Bertans can cover the spot as well if needed) and the defensive prowess of their backcourt is perhaps a little questionable. Finally this is a team with little to no experience in closed, do or die games but then again at these odds I'm more than happy to take a chance.

We can call it the battle of the disappointed for 3rd place with no special motivation for either CSKA or Real Madrid other than a strong test ahead of the playoffs for their domestic leagues. Both teams were eliminated in the semifinals but while the Spaniards were in any case the outsiders against the home team of Fenerbahce, the same cannot be said about the Russians. In fact CSKA were heavy favourites against their perennial nemesis of Olympiakos who were again without two key players (Lojeski and Hackett) but yet again the Greeks prevailed in almost the same heartbreaking fashion as in 2012 and 2015! It can't be denied that this must have been another huge psychological blow for CSKA, one that could probably affect their morale, confidence and overall concentration for a game with not much at stake anyway. Considering this parameter and also the odds which inexplicably in my opinion give CSKA favourites today it makes sense backing Real Madrid here.

Tip Preview:
Avellino hammered Reggiana in Game 1 of the playoffs for an easy 82-64 victory but Game 2 may be a quite different story. I reckon there are 3 key elements at play. Firstly Avellino's best player and MVP of the league Joe Ragland will be missing the next game to attend the funeral of his brother at the States. Secondly the MVP of Game 1 Fesenko has just returned from injury and remains to be seen whether he can maintain the same level of intensity and have the same devastating impact just 48 hours after the first encounter. Finally Reggiana's pitiful performance in Game 1 in which they were outplayed in every single aspect of the match by their rivals, will probably not be repeated. Despite their defensive deficiencies Reggiana remain a very talented team with enough playoff experience to get back to the series and obviously there are the odds for their victory that climbed over 3.50 when they were at just 2.50-3.00 range for Game 1. All things considered we can get involved backing Reggiana here.

Tip Preview:
Last day of the regular season and this is a match-up there is a strong possibility we will see again in a few days for the playoffs. Avellino have already secured third place while Trento may end up to 4th if other results go their way although remaining 6th seems the most probable scenario at this point. On theory the hosts are the only team with a strong motivation for this game but I really doubt Avellino will simply roll over tonight. They are still trying to integrate their newest arrival Shawn Jones and Fesenko has just returned from injury so he might get some minutes to gain match fitness.To all intents and purposes I am certain Avellino and coach Sacripanti will face this game as their last serious test before the playoffs even more so considering Trento can also be their first obstable in the post season. So all things considered I really don't think there is a chance Avellino will be indifferent here and with odds drifting over 3.00, it's worth getting involved now.

Despite losing hands down against Pesaro last week, Caserta are now mathematically secure from relegation and have nothing to play for. Salvation was their main goal and it was achieved but the truth is there is great disappointment considering how well they started the season and the disastrous second half they have had going on a 3-14 run since December and winning just once in the last 2,5 months. Moreover their best player Edgar Sosa left the club amidst rumours of financial problems for Caserta and now Cinciarini is the next player ready to depart. Not an ideal situation to confront Brindisi still battling for a playoff spot and coming from a great victory last week against league leaders and giants Armani Milano. While Brindisi have only a 2-2 record since their big signing of Samardo Samuels in late March, their two defeats came in heartbreaking single point losses they could have easily won. I reckon motivation is going to be the key for this match. The hosts are already thinking about the future with a financial uncertainty surrounding the club and most of the players probably won't be with the team after the summer. Brindisi on other hand are certainly the better team, in better shape and highly motivated. All things considered the -3,5 for the visitors seems generous to me.

Despite last night's easy win for Olympiakos, I'm quite certain that tomorrow is going to be an entirely different game. Efes have undoubtedly improved recently. Going on a 8-2 run in the Euroleague since February is not a coincidence. They still remain a little inconsistent and their effort on the defensive end is often suspect as was also the case yesterday but I would be surprised if there was no improvement and adjustments made for tomorrow by coach Perasovic. While Olympiakos appeared more prepared and mentally ready, leaving no room for contestation of their superiority in Game 1, it is also true that they had an almost flawless game playing great on defense, dominating the rebounds, committing few turnovers and shooting over 40% from the arc despite being second to last in the Euroleague in this statistical category. Moreover practically every role player stepped up which made everyone forget that Olympiakos are actually missing two key role players (Lojeski, Hackett) and their defensive anchor Kem Birch has performed very poorly recently, playing just 12 minutes yesterday. I'm not convinced the hosts can maintain this level of intensity for a second straight game and while Efes may still be defeated I expect a much tighter battle this time.

Even the bookies can't seem to decide the odds for the match. The victory for AEK opened at 1.79 (Pinnacle) and drifted all the way to 3.21! Now it's the time to get involved. Truth be told, Aris is the only team that needs to win to secure 4th place in the standings considering AEK are third regardless of the result. That doesn't mean though that the visitors are going to simply roll over here. They have only recently changed their head coach promoting Manolopoulos to replace Zdovc and they need all the matches they can get under their belt to find some rhythm for the upcoming playoffs considering also their poor recent performances, so I really don't think motivation is going to be an issue. Moreover Aris is in an even worse shape amidst injuries and less than ideal results.

The two teams are moving in opposite directions at the moment. Estudiantes have lost 4 of their last 5 matches, also losing in the process Ondrej Balvin to injury who was giving them a big hand in the paint since joining from Bayern back in February. Although he has already been replaced by Alec Brown who should debut on Sunday, I'm not convinced he can have the same sort of impact Balvin had, given Brown's poor past experience in the Liga Endesa with Obradoiro last year. Murcia on the other hand have really found their rhythm and consistency lately under new coach Fotis Katsikaris, winning 4 of their last 5 games and rapidly moving towards the mid table, where they belong given the roster's talent. The two teams are tied at 11th place in the standings at the moment but considering their current state of form, I have quite a few objections on the favorites label laid on Estudiantes for this match. The value is with Murcia here.

Trento took advantage of Milano's weariness and absentees last week to record an incredible 76-98 on the road, reaching 9 victories on their last 10 games but lost both Baldi-Rossi and Marble to serious injuries, so that is a huge blow for them. Coach Buscaglia will now have to include Lechthaler and Moraschini to the rotations who so far have had a very limited role and impact. Sassari had a full week to recover and prepare this match after playing almost non-stop two games a week because of their involvement in the Champions League, so this extra rest period will surely make a significant difference as it was more than evident that their energy was beginning to wane lately compromising their performances and results. I reckon there is huge value on this 2.70 for a Sassari win and I am going to increase the stake to 3 units just for this bet.

Trento's change in their setup, practically going small with Hogue and Baldi-Rossi as their big men has certainly paid off as evidenced by the 7 games won in their last 8. These victories helped them climb to 5th place in the standings. That said, I must also say I witnessed a team in slight decline in March in which they managed 2 close home wins against Pistoia and Caserta in matches that were decided in the last few minutes while they lost at Torino to the home team deprived of their leading scorer DJ White. Pesaro may be second from the bottom and have lost all of their 3 games this month by double digit margins but in an effort to avoid relegation they have brought in Rotnei Clarke along with Jeremy Hazell a couple of weeks ago and it will be interesting to see their impact now that they have integrated a little better to Pesaro's tactics. Besides as I have already pointed out, the Lega A is quite competitive this season and even last placed Pesaro and Cremona have caused a few upsets, so this 1.11 for Trento's victory is quite frankly laughable.

Tip Preview:
Considering only this is a direct confrontation in the relegation battle and the two teams are separated by just one victory in the standings, the odds should be much shorter for a Koroivos win. The truth is that Trikala have been the better team especially in 2017 in which they have recorded a respectable 6-5 record while Koroivos have lost 4 of their last 5 games in a tough schedule, but today's encounter may prove quite insidious for the home team. The key factors are Biruta's departure for Piacenza in Italy leaving Trikala without their best big man and the simultaneous return of Milutinovic for Koroivos after a two game absence in which he was sorely missed. I reckon we can seek the upset here considering the generous odds.

Tip Preview:
Had it not been for Deandre Kane's addition to Betis' roster last week, I would probably never have gotten involved with this match. But it's a move that could prove to be the deciding factor in Betis' effort to avoid relegation. Kane has been flying under the radar playing for Nizhny Novgorod until now but his stats really speak for themselves. I like what he brings to the table. He's strong, energetic and very athletic and it's the kind of player Betis has been lacking since the start of the season. Both Fuenlabrada and Betis are in bad shape coming into this encounter. The hosts have lost 3 of their last 4 games, their only win being at home against an injury stricken Zaragoza team playing without Gecevicius and Bellas, so hardly inspriring stuff. The visitors on the other hand have lost 7 consecutive games although they were competitive enough in most of them. Despite Fuenlabrada's strong record at home (7-5) I reckon it's worth taking a chance on Betis today considering the odds. I wouldn't go any lower than 3.00 however if we want to preserve some value in the bet. You can probably go higher than the odds on Pinnacle and Bet365 so make sure you check an odds comparison site.
