Tip Preview:
Those last 2 weeks have been a nightmare for Torino. First the sudden resignation of coach Banchi which confirmed the reports of bad relations between him and the board that begun last summer, then the appointment of veteran Recalcati at his place and now after just a few days at the helm, he has resigned as well! A real mess... In the meantime the team has suffered 5 consecutive heavy defeats in all competitions by an incredible 20.6 points of average margin and they risk of demolishing everything good that they had built from the start of the season. Zenit are in a much better shape lately. Gordon is back from injury, Griffin was signed to replace Laprovittola and has already made his debut with an impressive performance against Lietuvos Rytas and are going in Italy with a high morale after winning 7 of their last 9 games in 2018, only losing twice by Eurocup big favorites Bayern. Truth be told, Zenit can qualify tomorrow even if they lose by up to 10 points but I seriously doubt they are going into the game with such a dangerous mindset and I expect them to begin playing aggressively right from the start to remove any hopes from their opponents of reversing the situation. I simply can't see Torino as favorites here considering the circumstances.

A easy game for Casale at first glance but on closer examination Treviglio may have a decent chance of upsetting the hosts here. Casale will be missing both their most valuable player Jamarr Sanders and Brett Blizzard who together constitute the two best shooters of the team and arguably the only dependable ones. Unsurprisingly in the first game without them Casale shot a dreadful 3/25 from the 3 point line which contributed to their heavy loss against Reggio Calabria. Treviglio have recently made a significant change in their line up replacing power forward Douvier with center Easley and the move seems to pay off in the short term, winning 3 of their last 4 matches despite going against 3 of the top-5 teams in the west division of the Serie A2 (Biella, Trapani and Tortona). 3.40 for a Treviglio victory is good enough to get involved.

Tip Preview:
A very unfortunate season for Pistoia, who along with Reggiana are the two teams mostly penalised by injuries so far. The first victim for Pistoia was Sanadze who was injured in pre-season and then again in November and finally replaced by Jamon Gordon who after just 5 games decided to retire! At his place came Diawara. Then it was the turn of Kennedy to get injured and eventually replaced by Ivanov and if all that wasn't enough, McGee and LaQuintana were also forced to spend significant time on the sidelines missing 5 games apiece. A very confusing situation indeed. Obviously under these circumstances, the second from last place in the standings comes as no surprise for Pistoia who started the season with a comfortable mid table spot as their main goal. Already an important game for them tomorrow against a Cremona team in form but missing their best player and scorer Johnson-Odom, the first time this season they will have to play without him. Meanwhile tomorrow is also the first occasion that Pistoia can finally field their best available roster if LaQuintana recovers from a small midweek problem. Considering in addition their traditionally strong home court, the value seems to be with the hosts here.

This is a strange match tonight. On one hand we have Virtus Bologna who after a difficult 2017 with many close defeats and some probably unfair contestations towards head coach Ramagli, they have finally found some stability and serenity winning 6 of their last 7 games taking full advantage of their home court. Bologna though, are heading into tonight's match without A.Gentile who has been their most dominant player with his all around game and key reserve Ndoja whose presence is usually underestimated. Furthermore both Aradori and Lafayette are having some physical issues although they should be able to contribute in some way. As for Pesaro, there is no way to sugar-coat the truth. They remain dead last in the standings, are one of the worse teams of the Serie A and unless they bring some reinforcements, avoiding relegation is going to be difficult. Having said that, there are some bright spots as well. Guard Dallas Moore despite his youg age has been a pleasant surprise for Pesaro and is the second leading scorer of the league while big men Omogbo and Mika have also performed above expectations. Problems arise mostly from the supporting cast as Little's disappointing displays and a paper thin bench depth have really hurt the team. Despite winning just once in their last 8 games, it was a demanding schedule having faced 6 teams of the upper half of the table but have nevertheless gone very close at upsetting both Avellino and defending champions Venezia, only losing at the dying moments in both cases. All things considered, 5.00 for a Pesaro victory seems a bit high here in my opinion.

Tip Preview:
A couple of Serie A2 picks for tomorrow as all other competitions have matches with no value whatsoever. Besides Fortitudo Bologna, Mantova is another team with a barely positive +4 points differential despite a decent 10-7 in the standings and that indicates the many hardly contested wins achieved so far in matches decided in small details that could have really gone either way. Despite sitting 13th in the standings of the Serie A2 East division, Forli are not a bad team. They have a 3 win cushion over the bottom 3 teams, so getting involved in the relegation battle seems unlikely considering also the strength of the roster. Forli have missed starting center Diliegro for 5 matches due to injury earlier this season which probably cost them a victory or two but the team is healthy now. I reckon the bookies are perhaps reading too much into their 0-8 record on the road although in my eyes this is mostly coincidental than a lack of competitiveness when playing away from home. They lost at Piacenza after overtime while both against Fortitudo and Orzinuovi they were defeated by a single basket of difference, so their first victory on the road should come sooner or later. All things considered, 3.73 for a Forli win is good enough to get involved here.

A couple of Serie A2 picks for tomorrow as all other competitions have matches with no value whatsoever. Fortitudo Bologna are one of the historical and heavyweight teams of the division and although their 12-5 record so far is good enough for 2nd place along with Montegranaro, it certainly doesn't tell the whole truth. Plenty of ups and downs, inconsistency, a lot of close wins and some embarrassing losses as well have characterized Fortitudo's season so far. Unsurprisingly, their meagre +1 points differential is the second worse among the top 16 teams of the entire Serie A2! To make things worse head coach Boniciolli is absent and recovering from pneumonia, the leader and MVP of the team Mancinelli will miss tomorrow's match because of injury and Legion is on the verge of getting waived by the team and will not partecipate in the game as well. As for their opponents Ferrara, they are sitting just outside the playoff zone with a 8-9 record and Bonacina has recently taken over as head coach after a series of unfortunate results. Ferrara have also been very inconsistent and a couple of ugly defeats on the road strike particularly bad but that's not to say they haven't achieved some impressive wins as well against highly competitive teams like Montegranaro, Treviso and Ravenna. To conclude, Ferrara have been really unpredictable so far and perhaps that's what makes them a dangerous team to play against. As usual, Fortitudo have been really effective at home and have a deep enough bench to cover for the absences but at 4.28 I'm willing to give Ferrara a chance here.

Darussafaka are in excellent shape, still undefeated in 5 games for 2018 and certainly one of the big favourites for the Eurocup crown along with Lokomotiv Kuban, Bayern and Kazan. Also they are just one win away from already securing their qualification to the next round and are going in Germany to face Alba Berlin healthy, well-rested and full of confidence. The same cannot be said of their opponents though. While Radosavljevic just returned to action getting a few minutes in German Cup this weekend, starting point guard Silva went down with injury. That means Alba Berlin will have to face Wednesday's game without their backcourt duo of Silva and Butterfield also still on the sidelines. As much as I like Reneses's team I simply can't see them as favourites when they go against an expert team like Blatt's Darussafaka. The value is clearly with the Turks here.

It's no secret Orlandina are struggling at the moment having suffered 8 straight losses in all competitions and considering they are practically eliminated from the next round of the Champions League it's only logical their focus shifts to the italian league. Having said that, I doubt they will simply roll over when they face Neptunas tomorrow. In fact they need to turn this situation around sooner rather than later and are in urgent need of finding a good rhythm ahead of the critical matches they will be playing in Italy over the next few weeks. The only way of doing that is by simply playing hard every single game regardless of opponent and competition. Perhaps this will make them even more dangerous for the Lithuanians. As for Neptunas this is clearly a very different team than the one that dominated the first part of the season both on domestic and continental front. 3 players of their starting 5 and indispensable elements of the team, Girdziunas, Butkevicius and Palacios have left the club last month for financial reasons and while Sulskis and Fields were brought in an attempt to strengthen the team in some way, they are clearly not players of the same talent and quality. Neptunas have taken care of some low level opposition in the domestic lithuanian league since then but have lost 4 of their last 5 games in the Champions League as they are trying to adapt to the new situation. Overall a more insidious game for Neptunas tomorrow than what the odds suggest and it's worth taking a chance with Orlandina here.

Two teams that are moving in opposite directions at the moment. After starting the season with an impressive 7-2 record Obradoiro have now suffered 7 consecutive defeats since December and are struggling tremendously getting out of this poor run of form. For Bilbao the situation is completely different. The early disappointing performances led to the dismissal of coach Duran and the hiring of Mrsic while they also brought in big man Devin Thomas to replace the unimpressive Tim Kempton. Results have improved dramatically over the last month going on a 3-2 record with 3 straight wins at home and getting seriously close to upsetting both Gran Canaria and Andorra on the road only losing at the end of hardly fought games. While tonight Bilbao will be missing center Gladness because of injury, the rising of newly arrived Thomas should help cover his absence receiving more playing time. Obradoiro should eventually break this poor run sooner or later but there is nothing here to suggest that they have recovered from their terrible form just yet and the handicap for Bilbao seems small all things considered.

A battle between the two surprise-teams of the greek league, Lavrio and Promitheas separated by just one victory in the standings. The visitors Promitheas have experienced a tumultuous December that resulted in a poor 1-3 record and also some internal disciplinary issues that forced the team to part ways with both Evans and ultimately Releford replacing them with Ellis and just recently Murry who will debut today. The new year opened with a great win over AEK and I expect it to be the turning point to better results as the situation has normalised again. While for Promitheas the inevitable slump in form has come, the same is not true for Lavrio. They have kept a consistency of performances throughout the season but logic says they will suffer a dry spell sooner or later after overachieving to a 8-3 record and second place along with Olympiakos. At odds close to 3.00 at the moment I have no issues backing Promitheas in a game between two equivalent teams essentially.

Our first bet for 2018 and a tough one for sure. After a terrible 0-7 start, Burgos have strengthened their backcourt with the addition of Jenkins and have shown a steady improvement ever since going on a decent 3-4 record during this period although their last game of 2017 was certainly a step back when they were heavily defeated (76-99) at home against Gipuzkoa. It remains to be seen whether they can bounce right back when they visit an injury stricken Andorra tomorrow. In fact the home team face an emergency at the frontcourt with Diagne and Karnowski adding themselves to the injury list along with Copeland and Burjanadze while Shurna and point guard Albicy are still a doubt for tomorrow and even if they recover in time, will probably not be at their best. At least newly signed Sane will debut although I'm not convinced he can make a significant impact. Truth be told, Andorra have been particularly effective at home with a 5-2 record with both defeats coming in tightly contested games against Fuenlabrada and Baskonia but still this 1.15 for an Andorra victory is absurd considering the precarious physical state of the team. At 5.75 I believe we have to get involved backing Burgos here.

After their horrendous start, Pistoia have had to change considerably their roster replacing Gordon and Kennedy with veterans Ivanov and Diawara and while the former has contributed straight away, the latter has been inactive since last summer and his physical condition and overall impact has yet to be determined. Additionally the home team has Laquintana's absence to deal with and McGee doesn't seem in optimal form yet after his two month spell on the sidelines. A 5th consecutive win in all competitions for Trento in their midweek triumph over Gran Canaria and after signing Dustin Hogue who now has already a couple of matches under his belt and bringing back Gutierrez from injury, they are really beginning to resemble last season's team that surprisingly made it all the way to the finals. Pistoia may have showed some signs of recovery lately with a couple of wins but there are still plenty of question marks surrounding the team and Trento are going full steam now. At outsiders odds we should be backing them to upset Pistoia.

Panathinaikos are 3rd in the standings, they have won 6 of their last 7 games and are a perfect 6-0 at home. Yet I believe we should bet against them when they face Maccabi on Tuesday in Athens but let me explain myself. Panathinaikos have a tendency of playing with fire, generating thriller games with 4 of their matches decided literally at the last shot. Fortunately for them, 3 of those were won although their points differential of just +18 despite their overall very healthy 8-4 record is quite revealing. Moreover I can't say I was overly impressed with their last showings. They practically threw away an entire half in each of their last 4 games so consistency of play has certainly been an issue and may become an even bigger one now with Calathes injured. One cannot overstate Calathes' influence on Panathinaikos' game on both ends of the floor. He has been undoubtebly not only the team's MVP but also one of the leading candidates for the Euroleague's MVP as well. He has been simply irreplaceable for the greek team. Maccabi on the other hand are certainly no pushovers. They have just one less victory than Panathinaikos and are vastly improved compared to last season's dreadful team. They are top-3 in both defensive efficiency and rebounding in the Euroleague and with Panathinaikos amongst the worse teams in the rebounding department, this is probably going to be one of the keys of the game. To make a long story short, I expect Panathinaikos are going to have serious problems on both the offensive and defensive end with Calathes missing and if Maccabi limit the second chance points of their opponents, they should have a good opportunity of stealing this game. Only handicap odds at Pinnacle for now but 3.30 is widely available at other bookies as well as far as I can see.

Tip Preview:
A tough weekend ahead with almost all games priced quite right in Italy, Spain and Greece so I see no reason to get involved but there is a match that caught my eye in the second division in Italy (A2), so extraordinarily we will have a surprise pick from this league. Limits seem decent too as far as I can tell. The game is Aurora Basket Jesi - Pallacanestro Orzinuovi and we are backing the visitors (Orzinuovi) here. Here's why. Jesi are on a 3 game losing streak and things just got even worse with big man Quarisa going down with a serious injury leaving a team anyway short in depth, even shorter. Orzinuovi have been practically a new and vastly improved team this last month with Raffa replacing Olasewere and Strautins coming in on loan from Orlandina. Both new arrivals have been decisive so far and performances have also changed dramatically. Their 2-2 record in this period only tells half the story as both defeats came in hard fought, contested games on the road. At the very least I'm expecting Orzinuovi to be competitive here so this 3.09 seems quite big to me. Notice that the A2 italian division is written as "Lega Nazionale Pallacanestro Gold" at Pinnacle.

Tip Preview:
Last chance for Paris Levallois to get back into the qualification battle when they face Torino in Italy tomorrow. The season for the French is not going exactly as planned with the team struggling both in the domestic and european front but I still believe they are not as bad as they appeared at times or as their results indicate. They have lost some ground right from the start because of Odom's injury and both Prepelic and Ware missing one game but now everyone is healthy while the latest addition of Leslie gives some much needed help on the wings. Torino are also not scaring anyone at the moment and in fact their impressive 3-0 start in the Eurocup seems like a distant memory with the team succumbing to 4 consecutive defeats since November with an overall 65 points of deficit and some equally disappointing performances in the Serie A during the same period. While it's true they are coming from a big win over Milano on Sunday it remains to be seen if they have recovered definitely from this huge slump in form. In the end looking at the odds, this 4.75 for Paris Levallois seems huge in my eyes considering the circumstances but we should stick to the win only as with the questionable form of the two teams no result would really surprise me.

Tip Preview:
Two teams that seem to be moving in opposite directions at the moment. After getting all injured players back and replacing Dillard with Goss, PAOK have improved in their last games and slowly but steadily are beginning to find some consistency, moving closer to the top-4 in the standings where they belong. While PAOK are coming from 3 straight wins though, Koroivos have suffered 3 consecutive defeats by a combined 71 points of margin in an admittedly tough schedule which isn't getting any easier with PAOK, Panathinaikos and Promitheas following next. In any case Koroivos are a pretty limited team talent wise with one of the lowest budgets in the league and together with Kymi and Panionios I expect them to fight to avoid relegation appearing to be the 3 weakest teams in the greek A1 so far. Much like Murcia in our midweek pick, we are similarly backing a PAOK team in clear recovery who has shown a steady progress lately against a weaker opponent who has struggled in the last few weeks. The 3,5 point spread PAOK has to cover seems smaller than expected all things considered.

Tip Preview:
For no apparent reason the odds for a Brescia win keep rising since midday and at this point I have absolutely no problem getting involved. Cantu were clearly in good shape right before the international break and are traditionally strong at home but what can one really say about Brescia? This is the surprise team of the entire Serie A, still undefeated with a perfect 8-0 record including huge wins over Avellino, Bologna and Trento. Unsurprisingly, they lead the league in efficiency rating differential by a huge margin while possessing the toughest defense. Obviously they are going to lose their first game at some point eventually by I see no reason not backing them tonight especially at these odds.
