Tip Preview:
Despite suffering a 4th straight loss last week, Reggiana's form is not as bad as the results would make it appear. In fact they have faced the top-3 teams in the standings (Milano, Venezia and Brescia) and finally a Varese team in fantastic state of form lately and have been competitive in all of these games while they could have easily picked a couple of victories if it weren't for some small but crucial details. More importantly they have now recovered their best player Amedeo Della Valle who missed two of their last four games due to a back injury creating some serious roster balance issues to Reggiana. Cremona were practically a no-show in their last couple of matches losing hands down by big margins and appearing completely unrecognizable and it remains to be seen whether having secured their place in the Serie A which was their main goal at the start of the season has perhaps led to some relaxation . This is also the last chance for Reggiana to get involved into the playoff battle and I am expecting them to return to victories. Odds are good enough to get involved here.

A disaster of a season for Aris who have now become involved in the relegation battle despite a crucial win 2 weeks ago over Promitheas. Constant roster and staff changes have failed to bring the desired effect while impeding the team of finding any kind of chemistry and consistency. With guards Athinaiou and Bell injured and missing for tomorrow's game, new coach Aggelou will have his hands full, trying to find a functional line-up. We talked about Kymi a few weeks back. They slipped up against a decimated Promitheas team but have recovered with wins over Panionios and Trikala and they remain 7th, well inside the playoff zone. Aris is obviously the big name in this match and their home court still is one of the toughest arenas to play in for any opponent but results don't lie. Only a 5-5 home record this season and just 2 wins in their last 10 matches. Just can't see Aris as such big favorites here against an in-form team like Kymi.

Tough times for Avellino after the break for the World Cup qualification games. They entered March in 1st place in the standings but a difficult schedule and 4 defeats in their last 5 games means they have now fallen back to 4th. Meanwhile physical issues persist as besides the injured N'Diaye, both Filloy and Lawal are still not in optimal condition although it seems they will take part in today's match. For Cremona, Fontecchio's addition from Milano back in December has really upgraded the team as Milbourne has been underperforming so far, gradually losing his minutes in coach Sacchetti's rotation. In fact Cremona have gone on a 8-5 run since Fontecchio's arrival and are now just inside the playoff zone. It's also worth noting that Cremona have beaten Avellino both times the teams met this season and while a third victory may be too much to ask especially in an arena where Avellino have rarely been outplayed, I still expect them to stay competitive here today.

Orlandina still without a win in 2018 with 17 consecutive defeats in all competitions and obviously heavily involved in the relegation zone. It's also the team that has changed more than any other during the season with an incredible 8 players that were initially part of the roster (9 if we count Maynor too who arrived in mid-season but left recently) not with the team anymore! And that's why is really difficult judging Orlandina right now as the team that suffered all these losses is not the same with the current one with Knox, Smith and Likhodey not being there just 5 matches ago. Trento may be in excellent form with 5 wins in their last 6 games but they remain a team with plenty of ups and downs and barely inside the playoff zone at the moment with a 12-11 record. There is also some mystery surrounding starting point guard Gutierrez who is rumored to be close at being released by the team but there are no further updates so far. This is clearly a long shot but one we should have no second thoughts taking as odds especially at Bet365 are way off. If you are not able at taking the bet with Bet365 then go with only 0,5 units for this one.

Bilbao's recovery back in December was eventually short-lived as they have now suffered 7 defeats in their last 8 matches only beating struggling Betis at home and have become involved in the relegation battle with 8 rounds still to go. Losing shooting guard Todorovic last week to an injury is also a big blow considering he was one of the few bright spots of Bilbao's season while for Tabu and Mumbru who had not trained at all until Thursday, it's a race against time to have them both available for tomorrow's crucial clash. Tenerife are not going through a brilliant moment as well after their elimination from the Champions League by Murcia but they have had a solid if unspectacular campaign with clearly different goals from Bilbao as they are chasing a playoff spot. They have struggled a little on the road with a 3-8 record in the ACB but then again Bilbao's performance at home has hardly been inspiring counting more losses than victories this season. Just can't see Bilbao as favourites here considering their poor form, physical issues and ultimately their inferiority as a team.

Tip Preview:
This an outright pick for the Euroleague winner and although I'm not a big fan of long term bets, this particular one really caught my attention. Considering there are less than two months until the Final 4 it's safe to say not much can change until then excluding unexpected injuries. CSKA, Fenerbahce and Real Madrid are the 3 big favourites of course but there is no value in backing them taking into account the unpredictable nature of the Euroleague format (single elimination games in the Final 4) and that neither of these 3 teams appears invincible. So our pick is Baskonia at a price of 34.00 with most bookies. The spanish team has changed gear around mid-February recording 5 straights wins in the Euroleague and 8 in their domestic league and seems to have hit a fantastic form just at the right moment. Shengelia has been phenomenal this season but this is a true team, capable on both ends of the floor, have very good athleticism and a deep bench as well especially in their frontline. Amazing job from coach Martinez who arrived in mid-season and transformed this team into a very dangerous opponent. The key now will be maintaining this form for the near future and avoiding injuries. There are obviously some downsides as well. Baskonia have not yet qualified for the playoffs (although very close) and will need to eliminate a top 4 team playing without home court advantage in the playoffs so it's probably going to be crucial avoiding 7th or 8th place in the final classification and a CSKA or Fenerbahce match-up as a result. But a lot of things can change in the remaining two rounds of the regular season. Zalgiris would be another interesting choice at 51.00 but to be honest I'm not convinced they have what it takes to go all the way. They lack a true star and their defense appeared vulnerable most of the times. Baskonia gets my vote then. At 34.00 this is great value all things considered.

Tip Preview:
Burgos are coming from 6 straight losses in the league going into the game against Estudiantes but things are not as bad as they may seem. It has been a brutal schedule since the end of January that has seen them face teams only from the upper half of the standings including the top 3 (Real Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona). Still, they have not gone down without a fight. In fact they came really close at upsetting both Murcia and Barcelona this last couple of weeks and now are going in Madrid for what should be a much more affordable game. Gailius is still injured for Burgos although slovenian talent Cancar was a great pick-up for them. Estudiantes find a way of staying competitive at home and have a positive 6-5 record when playing in Madrid. Having said that, this is still a relatively limited team talent wise, relying heavily on Landesberg's inspirations on the offensive end. Estudiantes remain winless this month having lost all 3 matches in March and while they are the favourites here, there is not such a huge difference between these two teams to justify this kind of odds especially considering Burgos's improvement after the initial 0-7 for them at the start of the season.

After a couple of victories that gave them some room to breathe, Pistoia are again in serious trouble after last week's home loss to Reggiana. While they are currently two wins over the relegation zone, the schedule gets very tough for the remaining part of the season and physical issues keep on reappearing with an alarming frequency. This time Diawara will be forced to miss tomorrow's game while Bond seems will be present although in far from ideal condition. Venezia are flying at the moment. First place in the standings, 10 wins in their last 11 matches and the best team on the road with just two defeats in 11 games away from home. The recent addition of point guard Edgar Sosa further solidifies what has been one of the deepest teams of the entire Serie A. The value is clearly for Venezia here.

Tip Preview:
Kymi have completed an astonishing turnaround to their season since starting winless in their first 6 matches, going on a 8-3 record in the last three months and losing only to greek giants Olympiakos, highly ambitious AEK and Rethymno on the road. A big part to this transformation played the addition of McFadden who has been the top scorer not only of his team but of the entire Greek League averaging 20 points/game, while the signings of big men Kyser and Barlos have helped add depth to their frontcourt. Promitheas have had an excellent campaign as well and even if their initial 6-1 start was obviously not sustainable, they are still sitting comfortably within the playoff zone. Tomorrow they are facing Kymi with a couple of serious absences though with both Milosevic and Faye injured while Murry seems out of the squad now, failing to make a significant impact since replacing Releford back in January. Promitheas's coach Giatras will be probably forced to play small with Saloustros and Lypovyy at the forwards since Toutziarakis and Ellis are both centers and can't actually play together, severely limiting the team's options. Kymi are showing no sign of slowing down and it's worth getting involved backing them here.

Milano have hit the lowest point of their season when they were crashed by a decimated Cantu for the Cup quarterfinals. They have responded with an easy home win over Efes this week for the Euroleague but the fans have nevertheless booed the team for their shameful previous performance. This wildly inconsistent behaviour has extended to their home games as well this season. Mediolanum Forum has been a fortress the previous seasons. Milano had lost just 2 games at home in the last 4 years for the Serie A (excluding the playoffs) while they have already 2 defeats after just 9 games this season and could have easily been more considering the close wins over Brescia, Varese and Cremona. Sassari's 10-9 record doesn't do justice to the talent of this team as their campaign has derailed in part due to the many physical problems they have faced since the start, mainly with their two point guards Hatcher and Stipcevic. The team is healthy now though and this three week break was much needed to recover and re-group. Only two wins on the road so far for Sassari but it's worth noting how close they came in their last 4 matches (two lost in overtime) so there has been some bad luck involved as well. Figuring out Milano's performances and betting on or against them is like walking through a minefield. You never know what comes next. Having said that, the odds for Sassari are just too big to ignore here.

What a difference a couple of weeks can make! It was the middle of February when Avellino was entering the Final 8 of the Italian Cup with superb morale, full of hopes and in 1st place in the league after two comfortable and convincing wins over Torino and Pistoia. Two weeks later, the team is still shaken after a very disappointing and unexpected elimination from Cremona in the quarterfinals of the Cup. To make matters worse they have lost center N'Diaye to injury who is their only mobile big man and against an athletic team like Cantu he would have certainly come in handy. Fesenko on the other hand is still struggling with his knee and his presence tomorrow is up in the air. Cantu have had a completely different couple of weeks. Despite entering the Cup quarterfinal against Milano as huge outsiders and in precarious physical condition, they managed an unlikely 105-87 triumph over their rivals while in the semifinal against Brescia they fought bravely before getting eliminated in overtime. The good news this week was the return to action of top scorer Randy Culpepper and the signing of Perry Ellis who should give them a much needed depth in both forward positions. Different state of mind for the two teams going into this game. Considering the circumstances anything over 1.70 for Cantu looks fine in my opinion. Note that Pinnacle's 1.91 is a 0.0 handicap, so practically a draw no bet which means in case of overtime you get your money back. Bet365's odds cover overtime too.

We have talked about Iceland back in the last Eurobasket a few months ago. They are still the same atypical team without any clear reference points relying more on their combative nature than technical excellence. That's not to say there is not some talent available. Hermannsson and Hlinason are progressing nicely while veterans Stefansson and Baeringsson along with Palsson complement them. Czech Republic possess undoubtedly a superior team but this is a dangerous game. Iceland have just beaten Finland on Friday while the Czechs have also fatigue to handle after a very hard fought game in Bulgaria 2 days ago and then an almost 3700 km flight from Sofia to Reykiavik. It's worth backing Iceland here to pull another upset.

3 wins in 3 games for Germany in the World Cup 2019 European Qualifiers after defeating big favourites Serbia on Friday and are now facing Georgia at Tbilisi tomorrow. Yet again the dispute between Euroleague and FIBA means most teams can't employ Euroleague players which mixes the cards and makes figuring out team chemistry and performance almost a guessing game. Still, I like Germany's chances here. Their backcourt relying more on depth than quality remains the weakest link of the team but Akpinar, Tadda, Doreth and Saibou who share the minutes have considerable experience at this level. Georgia have perhaps exceeded expectations beating Austria yesterday but problems in their line-up remain. Besides Euroleague-bound star players Shermadini and Shengelia, injuries to Sanadze, Markoishvili and now Tsintsadze means roster talent and depth is seriously compromised. Dixon, young talent Bitadze and veteran Tskitishvili will have to carry the team although it's worth noting that for Dixon this is going to be his 3d game in just 5 days after playing 30 and 36 minutes in his last couple of matches and will be likely forced to carry a similar workload tomorrow too. We will see if his effectiveness suffers as a result. In any case, the Germans are strong favourites here in my eyes but due to the unpredictable nature of this kind of games we should stick to 2 units for this one guys.

In a huge surprise yesterday Cantu practically demolished Milano (just 1.10 at Pinnacle before the start) scoring 105 points and shooting an unreal 14/25 from the 3point line. All that despite still missing top scorer Culpepper and key big man Crosariol and coming into the game on a 3 game losing streak in the league. Brescia had also no problem defeating Bologna, leading from start to finish and confirming our bet. The big question now is if Cantu have enough left in the tank to repeat a similar performance today. All starters with the exception of Thomas played over 32 minutes yesterday and it does not go unnoticed that Burns, Chappell and Thomas are all over thirty years old as well. Perhaps more than that though, I remain skeptical whether they can repeat a similar shooting night again so soon. On the other hand, Brescia have given absolutely no reason to doubt them and are the better, more balanced team in this match-up. I wouldn't be surprised if they prevail comfortably in the end tonight but in any case the value is with Brescia here.

Tip Preview:
Final 8 of the Italian Cup at the neutral venue of Florence and the last of the quarter-finals. We talked about Virtus Bologna at a previous pick in February. The news is that their 4 game winning streak came to an end at Sassari last Sunday and while Alessandro Gentile is back from suspension, they have now lost Aradori to injury who is their best perimeter threat and scorer. In the meanwhile Stefano Gentile (Alessandro's brother) is in pain with a right wrist issue which is also his shooting hand. He should be able to play today although big troubles for Bologna's backcourt if he is limited or he doesn't recover in time as that would force coach Ramagli to employ at least for a few minutes the inexperienced Pajola at the point guard position and possibly Alessandro Gentile too as a point forward. Bologna have built their success taking advantage of their strong home court (8-2 record) while on the road their effectiveness drops significantly. Just 3 wins in 8 matches, all against teams at the lower half of the table. Brescia are coming from their worst defeat of the season at Varese and this is the first time they were completely outplayed by an opponent. I wouldn't worry too much though. They have already proved their worth after 19 matches so I tend to consider this loss as a one-off and until we see further proof of struggles for Brescia I wouldn't mind backing them at odds around 2.00 here. Not a huge value left so let's stick to 2 units for this one.

Tip Preview:
Huge blow last Thursday for Brindisi after the departure of center Cady Lalanne who has agreed terms with Besiktas and has already left for Turkey. He has been the cornerstone of the team this season averaging almost a double double in points and rebounds and has also played a fundamental part in Brindisi's recent resurrection that showed them win 4 of their last 6 games climbing out of last place. Lydeka has recently arrived to replace not Lalanne but the also departing Oleka, so Brindisi are again in the market for a big man! Meanwhile Milano is coming to town. Milano has once again failed to meet expectations in the Euroleague although winning 3 of their last 5 games did help to give some hope of better days ahead even if reaching the playoffs is out of the question at this point. Their dominion in Italy is also under threat as 4 teams share now the same 13-5 record at the top of the standings. Still, judged on roster quality and talent, this is by far the best in Italy despite failing to perform at a high level on a consistent basis. This unpredictable behaviour of Milano is the reason why we are getting just a 4 point handicap here but considering the circumstances it's worth taking.

Tip Preview:
A brutal schedule for Trento in 2018 that has seen them face 6 of the top 8 teams in the league and now the seventh when they go against Cantu tomorrow. Just 2 wins in these 6 games for Trento but a clear sign of progress in their last couple of matches, first beating first placed Brescia on the road and then staying competitive against Eurocup big favorites Lokomotiv Kuban before succumbing to a 71-74 defeat in the end. Further good news is the return of point guard Gutierrez who missed their last two league games after he was disqualified for getting into a fight. Cantu have exceeded expectations so far considering all their internal issues between the Gerasimenko owners and coach Recalcati at first which led to his resignation and then the heavy contestations of the fans as well towards them. Still, the team managed to enter the Final 8 of the italian cup but they now face an uphill battle when they visit Trento. Besides losing their last couple of games, they will be missing top scorer Culpepper for the first time this season and Crosariol is also in serious doubt because of injury. The value is clearly with Trento here.

Tip Preview:
Different goals for Oldenburg and Hapoel Holon when they meet tomorrow. The Germans have already qualified and simply searching for a better placement ahead of the playoff phase of the Champions League while the Israelis are eliminated from the next round but are still in hunt for a FIBA Europe Cup spot (5th & 6th positions), so different motivation but certainly not a pointless game. Oldenburg are still troubled by injuries that have hit their front line with De Zeeuw missing for several weeks now while Mahalbasic's presence is still in the air having missed the last Bundesliga game. Hapoel Holon are the fastest playing team in the league and quite unpredictable as a result creating plenty of score alternations in the course of their games. Their are still winless on the road so one could argue that their style of play hasn't exactly paid dividends but they have gone really close in at least 3 occasions during the season. Health issues have also troubled Hapoel Holon with Holloway, Alexander missing a handful of games combined while Rice jr. and Cline only joined the team in mid-season. A lot of variables to consider in the end that may make this match not as straightforward for Oldenburg as one might think at first glance.
