Last time we backed them, PAOK were clearly affected by the injury crisis that hit their backcourt, not permitting the team to work together in this early part of the season and find some automatisms and to be honest I'm still not convinced they have achieved much progress despite securing their first win in the greek league. Nevertheless I'm still willing to give them another chance as Orlandina are in no better shape at the moment. After securing a historical Champions League qualification at the expense of Avtodor Saratov, they have gone on a poor 1-6 run in all competitions and recently decided to part ways with their biggest summer signing Damien Inglis for yet undisclosed reasons. Considering their lack of european experience it remains to be seen whether they can handle the 2 games/week schedule especially now with Inglis' departure and consequent reduced depth at their frontcourt. Odds for a PAOK win are comfortably over 3.00 at the moment so we can risk getting involved.

Lietkabelis have hit the ground running in this early part of the season. They have gone on a 8-0 run in the lithuanian league including bigs wins over Lietuvos Rytas and Neptunas and they have already defeated a very ambitious side like Hapoel Jerusalem in the Eurocup. In fact their only loss this season came at the hands of Bayern on the road, a game in which the german team dominated from start to finish but considering the strength and quality of Bayern (amongst the big favourites for the Eurocup crown), I reckon Lietkabelis can be excused. I have already mentioned Reggiana's situation a week ago in a previous pick. Unfortunately they somehow came up with a miraculous second-half against Galatasaray, claiming their first win of the season, only to get embarrassed at home 3 days later versus an out of form Orlandina team, proving that their big problems cannot be solved overnight. I believe it's one of the cases where the records of the two teams actually speak for themselves. Lietkabelis have a 9-1 record in all competitions while Reggiana are 1-6. All things considered the 5 points handicap seems quite small for Lietkabelis to cover here.

Tip Preview:
Bilbao are getting massively overrated again despite last week's home loss to Limoges and I see no reason not to bet against them once more. Partizan obviously don't need much presentation being one of the big names of european basketball in fame and tradition. These last few years they have not been competing in the Euroleague due to financial reasons but they remain one of the teams that constantly produce new talents, their latest product being Vanja Marinkovic who is already in the radar of the biggest european clubs. This season Partizan are inevitably going to face plenty of ups and downs considering the very young average age of the roster. That being said and despite the defensive limitations of the team so far, I still reckon they can produce a couple of surprises with the aggressiveness and enthusiasm that characterizes this group of players. Let's hope Bilbao is going to be their first victim! Since Bet365 and Pinnacle don't have moneyline odds yet, I'm quoting William Hill for this pick but you could easily find a better price by shopping around.

After losing Llull to season ending injury, Real Madrid have now lost both Randolph and Kuzmic to serious injuries forcing them to return to the market for a new big man. Meanwhile they will play their next few games without two of their best players and despite their huge depth it remains to be seen whether they will stay unaffected. Even though having a big budget to work with and attract quality players, Milan have seen one big disappointment after another these last few years, always starting their Euroleague campaign with big dreams only to remain empty-handed in the end. A lack of talent has rarely been the problem though. Most of the times it was poor team chemistry, bad attitude of some players, questionable coaching and front office decisions that condemned them. Their start this season has been encouraging. Their two defeats should not mislead you as they came in very hard fought games against the two big favourites for the Euroleague crown, CSKA and Fenerbahce. Their start in Italy has been excellent as usual going for a 4-0 record in Serie A and conquering the italian Super Cup. Despite Real Madrid's great start and while still remaining sceptical about Milan, the odds for a victory of the visitors are simply too big to ignore considering the circumstances.

The Lakers are moving towards respectability once again after drafting Lonzo Ball and getting rid of Mozgov's ridiculous contract. They now have two great talents to build around (Ball and Ingram), a couple of interesting pieces in Randle and Clarkson but also a promising coach in Luke Walton. Meanwhile the expiring deals of Caldwell-Pope and Lopez give the Lakers some time to decide whether they feature in their long term plans or trade them for more assets or a chance to dump Deng's horrendous contract. New Orleans are a big mess in my opinion. The chance to add an all star center like Cousins at a discount was too big a temptation to resist but has left the team with a dangerously depleted backcourt both in talent and depth and some questionable fits in their roster. The absences of Asik, Rondo and Hill only make matters worse for the Pelicans while the Lakers are getting Caldwell-Pope back from suspension tonight after missing the first two matches. To be honest I see no reason for New Orleans to be considered favourites here and the Lakers get my vote at these odds.

The Miami Heat have been the biggest enigma of the NBA last season starting with a 11-30 record in the first part of their campaign and going 30-11 in the second, barely missing the playoffs! Miami's management were obviously convinced enough by the team's mid-season transformation and have practically confirmed last year's roster after re-signing both Dion Waiters and James Johnson while the only notable summer addition is big man Kelly Olynyk. Miami are aiming staight for a playoff spot this season but one has to wonder which team will actually show up for the 2017-18 campaign. The Miami Heat of the first part of last season or The Miami Heat of the second part? Their opening game was a disappointment in any case falling on the road to the Orlando Magic and losing starting center Hassan Whiteside to injury. The Indiana Pacers were forced to hit the reset button after all star forward Paul George declined to renew his contract and the team decided to build around Myles Turner. Only Thaddeus Young, Al Jefferson and Glenn Robinson III return from last season's roster. The Pacers will also play without their own starting center Myles Turner and this will be a season in which their main focus will be developing the young talent on their roster. That being said, I still believe they have put together a decent team capable of catching a few teams by surprise if underrated. At 4.75 for the Pacers win, the odds are high enough to risk getting involved.

A decent start of the season for Bilbao in what may be the last campaign for both the emblematic leader of this team Alex Mumbru and Axel Hervelle. 6 new faces were brought in this summer but with the exception of Gladness and perhaps Tomas, the rest still seem some way off from making an immediate and significant contribution. As a result some ups and downs are surely to be expected. Limoges are an entirely new team with just reserve big man Zerbo returning from last year's roster but early results are more than encouraging and last week they pushed Eurocup favourites Lokomotiv Kuban to the last shot coming close to a big upset. Young frenchman Axel Bouteille has been a revelation so far and the return of shooting guard AJ English from injury gives another weapon to coach Milling. Bilbao may be the favourites here but I reckon Limoges are getting seriously underrated. Anything over 3.40 looks good enough to get involved.

Tip Preview:
Reggiana are on a transitional period after deciding to part with their best player and leader Pietro Aradori last summer along with a few other veteran players like Polonara, Kaukenas, Gentile and De Nicolao who were part of the hard core of this team for years. The budget was lowered along with expectations and Reggiana invested in young Italian players like De Vico, Mussini and Candi while maintaining a minimum of continuity by keeping Della Valle and Cervi, although the latter was lost to a serious injury last week. Results have not been good for Reggiana so far, losing all 4 matches played this season. Galatasaray were forced to wholesale changes in their roster this summer after getting relegated to Eurocup, with only Preldzic and Koksal remaining from last season but they have still built a decent team with the additions of established veterans like Renfroe, Hardy, Hendrix and Summers and a couple of promising players like Christmas and TJ Cline. On paper they easily look like a top 8 team in this Eurocup competition. All things considered, the odds are plain wrong for this game. Galatasaray are a more talented team with greater european experience, more depth while for Reggiana, if initial results are any indication, they should be preparing for a long, tough season. Simply no way I can see Reggiana as favourites for this match. Huge value on Galatasaray to win and worth betting on with 3 units. No Pinnacle odds yet but in all bookies odds are comfortably over 2.20 so you should have no problem getting on.

Looking at the Paris Levallois roster the names of Klemen Prepelic, still in great form and winner of the last Eurobasket with Slovenia and ex NBA star Boris Diaw immediately pop up and are the uncontested leaders of this team. Gavin Ware had also a great start in the season but the good news stop there I'm afraid. Starting point guard Louis Campbell is almost 39 years old now and he has obviously lost a step while the rest of the supporting cast also seems weak and the injury to Roderick Odom during preseason doesn't exactly help matters. In the french league Paris Levallois have won just once in their first 4 matches while losing all 3 home games played. Darussafaka's biggest win this summer was actually keeping legendary coach David Blatt at the helm and while they had to reshuffle their roster after getting relegated from the Euroleague, the new additions look very promising placing them certainly amongst the big favourites for the Eurocup crown. Despite losing badly in their opening game for the turkish league, the quality gap between Darussafaka and Paris Levallois seems quite big to justify backing the turkish team at these odds.

Venezia are back in the competition after a successful campaign last season when they reached the quarterfinals. Bramos and Peric are back with the team but key player Ejim left for Kazan. Orelik, Johnson and Watt are the main additions and what is evident immediately is their very deep roster with at least 10 players expected to have a significant role. Banvit are the finalists of the last edition of the Champions League but what has been their biggest strength, their backcourt consisting of Theodore, Korkmaz and Orelik are gone, so repeating last season's feat looks difficult at the moment. That being said though, coach Filipovski and frontcourt duo of Vidmar and Kulig are back providing some stability while they have made some astute additions with Odum, Caloiaro and Taylor. All things considered I still expect them to remain competitive this season and are getting seriously underrated tonight by the bookies. Anything over 2.75 looks excessive to me.

I rarely bet against in form teams but I am obliged at making an exception here as the circumstances are rather unique. But first let's see the facts. Ludwigsburg have started the new season with 8 straight wins (6 in the Champions League, 2 in the Bundesliga) and seem to have already developed a good team chemistry despite keeping just 2 players from last season's roster (Thiemann and McCray). PAOK on other hand have lost both the games they played so far (against Aris for the greek cup and Promitheas for the greek league) and for that reason we have a completely lopsided set of odds. On closer inspection though there are a couple of objections. Ludwigsburg have faced a very low level of competition so far. More specifically they prevailed against Bosna, Cluj, Brussels, Bremerhaven and Frankfurt, so not exactly world-beaters. PAOK on the other hand lost both their games amidst a mini injury crisis that forced Dillard, Koniaris, Jones and Margaritis to either miss the matches or play in less than optimal conditions. Considering also that Dillard and Koniaris are both point guards, one can see the complications created here. The last update from Greece says everyone should be available for tomorrow so that is a big boost for PAOK. Finally I have to say I like this PAOK team. They have a nice mixture of veterans and young talents, considerable european experience, an ambitious new coach and I'm convinced they can make some noise in this group. To be honest I was not expecting more than 3.00 for the visitors' win, so 5.33 is simply too big to ignore.

Two teams with similar (playoff) ambitions this season but also quite similar apparently in terms of strength at least judging their potential based on their transfer moves and their first official game played a couple of days ago. Their similarities extend in their roster construction priorities as well. They have both kept a good part of last season's teams while injecting a much needed dose of athleticism with players like Diagne, Blazic for Andorra and Olaseni, Eyenga for Fuenlabrada. The set of odds fails to reflect what are essentially two evenly matched teams, even more so with Andorra's Burjanadze currently injured and perhaps the bookies are reading too much into Andorra's impressive 14-2 record at home last season. In any case with odds for a Fuenlabrada win standing comfortably over 3.00 at the moment, there is considerable value backing the visitors to prevail here.

I'm quite intrigued by the roster new coach Banchi has put together this season with Torino. Established veterans like Washington, Mbakwe and Vujasic with considerable Serie A experience, Poeta, Iannuzzi and Mazzola enhancing the italian element of the team and newly arrived Lamar Patterson who I suspect may become one of the protagonists in the league. Last but not least a very deep bench and players capable of occupying multiple positions on the court which increases versatility and is essential in case of injuries. All things considered a playoff spot seems like the minimum expectation for Torino. Brindisi's ambitions have been lowered this season as a result of their main sponsor's reduced economic support. That's not to say this is necessarily a bad team. The additions of Tepic, Randle and Giuri are astute moves that should provide invaluable leadership and experience but the rest of the roster consists mostly of unproven players and especially the performance of their backcourt duo of Barber and Suggs is going to be crucial for Brindisi's fortunes. Considering though the increased level of competition in Serie A this year, I'm having trouble seeing how they can aspire to anything more than a safe mid table position. This set of odds seems quite wrong in my opinion and I see no reason not to go with the visitors Torino here.

Gran Canaria should maintain their status as a top-6 team in Spain this season. They kept Casimiro as coach and almost half of last year's roster (Pacecniks, Baez, Aguilar, Rabaseda, Pauli, Oliver) while adding interesting pieces like McKissic, Seeley, Balvin and Mekel. The two games already played in the Supercopa by Gran Canaria against top competition (Real Madrid and Valencia) seem to confirm this assessment. Gipuzkoa are newly promoted to ACB and unless they add some serious talent to their roster, they should have a very tough time avoiding relegation. The team seems to lack in most positions with only exception being the center where Norel is a nice pick up from Zaragoza and should complement nicely with Agbelese. Other than that though there is not much room for optimism. To make things worse they have to face Gran Canaria without their starting point guard Cherry, out because of injury. I would be surprised if Gran Canaria fail to get an easy double digit win here.

Capo d'Orlando were rewarded with a Champions League spot after their great 2016/17 season in Italy when they surprised quite a few people with their astute signings like Fitipaldo, Archie and Iannuzzi. While they retained just a couple of players from last season (Delas-Stojanovic) they followed the same philosophy in the transfer market bringing in talented youngsters like Inglis, Kulboka and Edwards, constructing a very interesting team with good depth but still too early to judge with certainty. Saratov is also a new team. They brought back just Frazier from last season's roster and signed a new coach (Andrea Mazzon) and 5 new Americans most notable Coty Clarke and Micah Downs. While Saratov have already a few games under their belt and 3 wins out of 4 matches (but also an embarrassing loss at home to Keravnos), it is also true that they didn't exactly scare anyone considering the low level of competition faced so far. I would say this is the typical high risk-high reward kind of game. Capo d'Orlando are playing their first ever game in european competitions but are an intriguing team and Saratov may find themselves in trouble if not at their best. I will keep the stakes lower considering there are quite a few question marks regarding both teams.

Tip Preview:
Quarterfinals for this Eurobasket and honestly I can't see why Slovenia are the favourites for this match. I reckon the odds should have been inversed here. Latvia is simply one of the revelations of the tournament I am happy to report. After losing their initial game to Serbia in a tightly contested affair (completely misleading in fact the final 92-82 scoreline), they have recorded 5 straight victories winning by an average margin of 18 points/game(!) despite facing strong opposition like Russia and hosts Turkey along the way. Slovenia no doubt have been solid so far as expected but I really see two serious flaws with this team. Limited bench depth especially in their frontcourt and poor 3 point shooting (31,8% in the tournament). That doesn't bode well facing Porzingis and company. I'm glad to back Latvia at these odds.

Tip Preview:
I have to say I'm positively surprised by Russia so far. Built around the axis of Shved-Mozgov, coach Bazarevich has created a tough, hard working team with a remarkable consistency excluding their second half collapse against a superior Latvia team. Their biggest weakness is their limited offensive options. They are over-reliant on Shved to score and create for his teammates and while he has performed admirably so far, they will need at least a couple of their veterans to step up if they are to get involved in the medalist zone. Yes, I'm referring to you Mr. Fridzon and Vorontsevich! Croatia is similar to Russia in many ways. Based on their own stellar duo of Bogdanovic and Saric, they are also a team difficult to decipher, capable of challenging Spain for the win until the end but also struggling excessively to put down a limited Hungary team playing an entire second half without their best player and leader Adam Hanga. The biggest concern for the Croatians has to be the mediocre performances of Simon who has struggled so far, perhaps still affected by his late season injury. A key for the match may be Russia's suffocating defense and great size as they have enough athletic forwards (Vorontsevich, Kurbanov, Zubkov) to throw at Saric and Bogdanovic in their effort to limit them. All things considered I'm expecting a close, contested game here. Croatia may have a very slight advantage but with odds for a Russia win standing around 3.00 at the moment, I have no hesitation backing Bazarevich's team.
