Tip Preview:
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.

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.

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.

Cremona lost both their games for the Supercoppa last weekend and showed some wildly inconsistent basketball during the course of the matches. That's enough reason not to trust them as hot favourites as they face Treviso tonight. Newly-promoted Treviso have had the toughest of the assignments in their debut in Serie A going against Italian giants Armani Milano and while they remained competitive in the first half, they completely fell apart in the second. Nevertheless I'm quite optimist regarding their chances against Cremona. They have assembled quite an interesting team during the summer. In Menetti they have found a good and very experienced coach while the additions of Fotu and Nikolic are two undervalued players who can do really well in this league. Overall they have a very versatile roster that I'm sure will cause some upsets during the course of the season, hopefully starting tonight!

Contrasting debuts for the two teams in the first match of the season. Trieste picked up from where they had left off last year and gave current Serie A champions Venezia a real scare before succumbing in the end. More importantly they did so playing without their starting small forward DeQuan Jones who should be one of the references of the new team and is expected to make his debut tonight. Playing against Sassari at home, Varese confirmed all their limits evidenced in pre-season. An alarming lack of cohesion and limited roster depth especially in their frontcourt which appears to be lacking physical presence and athleticism. At the same time Mayo who is supposed to be the star of this team was simply atrocious. I tend to not overreact to a single game but Varese's horrendous performance doesn't leave much room for optimism in such a short amount of time. Trieste is always a tough place to go and win and Varese at the current moment seem some way off of being close to do it. The -6.5 handicap for Trieste seems well within their capabilities all things considered.

Zaragoza have made some concrete moves during the summer to replace their departing star, Stan Okoye and bolster their squad depth ahead of their partecipation in the Champions League and for the most part seem to have done a decent if unimpressive job mixing experience and youth in equal parts. The evolution of talented Alocen and Justiz will probably be key to what their ceiling will be this season. Obradoiro's strength will once again be continuity with Fernandez remaining at the helm for yet another year and as always their ability to discover new talents with McGee and Daum being their next "bets". That's not to say that the team will not be counting on players of experience as Calloway, Vasiliadis rarely fail to deliver while Kravic can be a steal for Obradoiro in a spot where they urgently needed help last season. Overall an insidious match-up for Zaragoza who after their long trip back from the Canary Islands will have to deal with the probable absences of Seibutis and Justiz as well.

After impressing by finishing 4th in their last campaign, Peristeri will be missing the element of surprise as the new season is about to start. Not that much has remained the same. The only two key "survivors" of last year's team is Gray and Vasilopoulos. Considering Peristeri is returning to a European competition this season, new coach Zouros has built a roster with more depth as expected, some guarantees as their very experienced backcourt comprising Hatcher, Gray and Xanthopoulos but also some question marks such as Blake and Kingsley who missed almost the entire last season because of injury. The advanced age of several key players is also something worth keeping an eye on as the team will have to adjust playing twice a week. Iraklis are returning to the top division of Greece after languishing in the lower categories for almost a decade and judging by their ambitious offseason signings, they have no intention of going back anytime soon. New coach Kastritis is one of the most promising tacticians of Greek basketball while the summer acquisitions of Hanlan and Shuler will provide invaluable leadership and experience for Iraklis's backcourt. Moreover Lenzelle Smith who returns to Greece after a good season in Israel and ex Nymburk Alex Davis are astute pick-ups as well while the signing of several players with good knowledge of the A1 division like Kavvadas, Garrett and Okereafor is also a step in the right direction especially for a newly-promoted team. As you can probably tell, I'm quite intrigued by Iraklis's recruiting campaign and at the current price it's certainly worth our attention here considering also that we are talking of two almost entirely new teams which adds an additional layer of unpredictability to the encounter.

The second round of the Champions League qualifiers begins tonight and despite still being early days and a little premature drawing 100% accurate conclusions based mostly on preparatory games, I have quite a strong opinion for the match in Finland between Karhu and Torun. The Finnish champions have surprised a much more illustrious team like Minsk in the first round but the Belarusians appeared completely unprepared and with some serious absentees in these encounters. Having eliminated Minsk may actually work in our advantage here tonight as Karhu are given as favourites when they face the Polish team of Torun and that's where I have some serious objections. Torun have not played any official games yet and they missed Polish internationals Cel and Kulig for most of their preparation period due to the World Cup but that's about the only drawbacks regarding their matchup against Karhu. Torun have superior talent, bigger depth and vast experience to overcome these obstacles against a pretty limited opponent. I'd be surprised if they fail to at least defend their +2.5 handicap here.

After impressing last season by winning the Italian Cup and arriving at the semifinals of the Serie A, Cremona seem to be in for a rude awakening as the new campaign is about to begin with the Supercoppa in Bari this weekend. The departures of key players Crawford and Mathiang and some questionable choices in the market, the advanced age of playmaker Travis Diener (now well past 37) and the disappointing performances and disposition of the entire team during the preparatory games have already started ringing the first alarm bells for Cremona. Meanwhile newly-arrived center Darrell Williams has already been replaced by Josip Sobin just in time to debut in the Supercoppa on Saturday. Sassari have built a rather atipical team this season especially in their frontcourt department with the arrivals of Bilan, McLean and Evans, as the latter two players will inevitably spend time in the power forward position but will obviously play together as well when McLean will act as the center. Time will tell how this experiment will work but the high basketball IQ of these players leaves a lot of promises that it will be successful. Both teams are obviously still a work in progress this early in the season but Sassari are clearly one step ahead at the moment both in terms of quality and cohesion. Anything better than 1.60 for the -2.5 handicap for Sassari looks fine to me.

The Argentinians led by ageless Scola and Campazzo, have had a phenomenal tournament going undefeated all the way to today's final and after recording two highly convincing double-digit victories in the quarter and semifinals over Serbia and France respectively, leaving no room for doubts of their superiority along the way. As far as Spain is concerned, I'm not as convinced. On one hand you have to admire The Spaniards' mentality and ''refuse to lose'' attitude arriving undefeated to this final too, but there have been more than one occasion that their performance and consistency left a lot to be desired. Meanwhile one could argue that Australia has been the better team in their highly-contested semifinal, leading for the biggest part of the match and only succumbing after a double overtime in the end. Having said that, Spain's unmatched experience and superior roster depth cannot be underestimated which leaves us with a balanced and pretty unpredictable game today. It's quite rare finding value in a World Cup final but I estimate Argentina represent decent value here at odds over 2.35. If unable to take Bet365's price, make sure you shop around as there are better prices available at the moment than Pinnacle's 2.55.

The Czech Republic has been one of the teams that impressed the most during the first round. Despite missing Fenerbahce's Jan Vesely, last season's Euroleague mvp, coach Ginzburg has presented a very well-coached team, with defined roles and great chemistry and the playing hours this group of players has spent together in court is really making a difference. Obviously roster depth is an issue, practically restricted to 6 players with Kriz and Pumprla only getting limited minutes off the bench. Relying on the same familiar group of veterans (Varejao, Barbosa, Huertas, Garcia and Marquinhos), the Brazilians are carrying a perfect 3/3 wins coming into the game, but they have appeared vulnerable with significant lapses during the course of their matches for which they have yet to pay but cannot afford as the tournament progresses and the competition gets tougher. Brazil are rightly the favourites but the Czechs will have their chance against an opponent that certainly looks beatable. We'd rather go with a 2 unit handicap bet here as the win market prices are a little shorter than I would have liked. If you can grab prices over 3.50 for a Czech Republic win available with certain bookies that's fine obviously.

Iran are still winless but the loss to Spain has surely left them more happy than disappointed considering they were surprisingly competitive throughout the encounter. Personally, I put that more on the Spaniards' lack of motivation and commitment than Iran's true skill of which I have a clear opinion. Angola are obviously pretty limited talent wise as well but I still think they can have a chance if they dictate a fast tempo considering their superior athleticism, Haddadi's slowness but also their lack of 3 point shooting. Truth be told, Iran have left a slightly better impression than the Africans in this World Cup so far, but still that doesn't justify the kind of odds we are getting again here.

In what was probably the craziest game of the World Cup, Canada went from a 14-point deficit at the halftime, to a 6-point lead in less than six minutes of play, only to run out of gas in the final quarter losing eventually by 18! To be honest, I think the Canadians have really done a disservice to themselves especially on the defensive end allowing 102 points. They certainly have the physical means of massively improving on that performance as Birch, Joseph, Ejim are strong defenders individually. Lithuania have had an easy night against an unbalanced Senegal team in their debut and while they have an expert team and a stable core of players in the national team which helps a lot in terms of cohesion and chemistry, they lack in star quality and offensive talent compared to Australia. The rebounding battle will probably determine a lot today. If Canada protect their paint against the two giants of Lithuania (Valanciunas and Sabonis), they can probably stay competitive long enough to start putting some doubts in the minds of their opponents. In any case the prices are clearly overinflated at the moment for a Canada win and deserve a small bet.

Iran missed a great opportunity in their debut against Puerto Rico losing by Mojica's last second shot despite shooting an improbable 47,6% from beyond the arc. Veteran big man Haddadi was once again the cornerstone of the team (22points, 16 rebounds) supported on the offensive end by a commendable Yakhchali but ultimately still not enough. Tunisia have had an excellent first half against Spain before falling apart in the third quarter but that was to be expected considering the difference in quality between the two sides. I'm very surprised Iran are favourites tomorrow when they face Tunisia. The Iranians are pretty predictable relying heavily on Haddadi, weak on defense and athleticism. It could be argued that the Tunisians possess the two better players in this match-up (Mejri, Roll) and have also shown a better grasp of fundamentals and organization on both ends of the floor. I really fail to see why they are outsiders here. They should defend the +3.5 handicap at the very least and deserve increased stakes considering the value.

Canada was certainly among the teams mostly affected by all these NBA players defections that have also hit the U.S.A. roster. J.Murray, Barrett, Wiggins, Gilgeous-Alexander, Olynyk, Stauskas, are just some of the notable absentees for the Canadian national team in this World Cup. Still, not everything is doom and gloom. Nick Nurse, NBA champion with the Toronto Raptors last season, will be at the helm of the team as head coach and while Canada may lack major NBA talents there is still a considerable amount of quality available. Players like Joseph, Birch, Pangos, Ejim are certainly no scrubs and the team possesses enough athleticism, playmaking and shooting to be competitive in all their games. Australia have attracted huge attention by beating the U.S.A. in an exhibition game and while they remain one of the stronger teams in this tournament, their depth is questionable after the losses of Simmons, Exum and Broekhoff and may exposed as the competition progresses. People are probably getting a little carried away after their strong showing against the U.S.A. but I wouldn't underestimate Canada's chances of stealing the game here.

Canada was certainly among the teams mostly affected by all these NBA players defections that have also hit the U.S.A. roster.

Tip Preview:
I like this German team. Led by an established Nba-er like Dennis Schroder who has always excelled in this kind of international competitions and complemented by a very interesting collection of big men with a wide array of skills (Voigtmann, Theis, Kleber), they are sure to cause problems to their rivals, even if the road to the quarter-finals is complicated considering they will be crossing paths with the most competitive Group of this World Cup in the next round comprising Australia, Lithuania, Canada and Senegal. Certainly an additional player with defensive inclinations would have surely helped Rodl's backcourt but every team's roster comes with some limitations. France has probably a higher level of talent than Germany. The mere presence of Gobert and Poirier in the middle is a guarantee on the rebounding and defense departments while Fournier and De Colo are extremely gifted scorers. Still, France seem to be lacking balance in their final roster composition. I'm not entirely convinced on the playmaker duo of Albicy and Ntilikina while Batum despite being just 30 years old has been really underperforming for at least a couple of seasons, perhaps limited by physical issues. Moreover people seem to be underestimating Heurtel and Moerman's absences who were both coming from the best season of their careers. Especially Moerman's 3 point ability and nice complementarity with either of the French centers, will be sorely missed as both M'Baye and Labeyrie are inconsistent and ultimately unproven at this level. Germany really ticks all the boxes to cause an upset here.
No moneyline yet at Pinnacle so we are backing just the handicap for the time being waiting for them to price up the win market as well. In any case if you can grab anything over 3.80 for Germany's win elsewhere that's fine.

Tip Preview:
Russia appear in this World Cup with a seriously depleted roster as three of their stars, Shved, Mozgov and D.Kulagin and a couple of useful role players such as Khvostov and Bolomboy will miss the tournament, leaving coach Bazarevich with a severely weakened backcourt, lack of intimidation in the paint and limited offensive firepower. The Nigerians bring along 4 Nba-ers (Udoh, Aminu, Okogie, Metu) in their final roster which was announced today and some excellent supporting cast to complement them as Gran Canaria's Okoye and Baskonia' Eric. Their point guard situation and overall backcourt depth is a slight concern but I still expect them to suffocate Russia with their defense and vastly superior athleticism here. First day encounters hide always some surprises but Nigeria's -3.0 handicap seems to me at least a couple of points less of what it should have been.
