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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tip Preview:
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.

Tip Preview:
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.

Tip Preview:
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.

Tip Preview:
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.
