Thursday morning in Italy. No hope to see my bookmaker publishing NBA odds till the afternoon. Anyway I see it already publishes odds for Coppa Italia Final Eight, the Italian national cup for Serie A teams.
Final Eight – Quarter finals
Friday, February 8, 2013 – 20:30 CET
(CET is Central Europe Time)
MONTEPASCHI SIENA vs TRENKWALDER REGGIO EMILIA
Mediolanum Forum, Assago, Milan (Italy)
Siena (seed n° 3) won last 4 Coppa Italia, but this season it’s not favourite also because of the financial problems of its main sponsor, the Italian bank Montepaschi. Do I think the green and white players can win their 5th Coppa Italian in a row? No, I don’t. Anyway I imagine Siena can win against Reggio Emilia and go the semifinals.
Reggio Emilia (seed n° 6) surprised everyone securing a place in the Final Eight. Anyway, this team already met Siena twice this season: in Reggio Emilia in September Montepaschi won 61-56 and, in Siena two weeks ago Montepaschi won 64-49. So, Siena has already shown it’s stronger than Reggio. I back the green & white team. By the way, as you live in Italy you can watch the match live on TV channel Sportitalia 2.
My bookmaker odds
Reggio Emilia 6.30
Siena (-11.50) 1.87
Reggio Emilia (+11.50) 1.87
Siena @ 1.10
Siena – Reggio Emilia 82-73 +0.70
I love this game!
