It’s 8:00 AM in the morning in Florence. No hope to see NBA odds till midday, so I move to Euroleague, the top European league.

PalaEstra, Siena, Italy

Siena (5-1, streak L 1) last weekend won Coppa Italia, so the team is still strong enough to fight for some titles. This season the green & white players are performing better in Euroleague than in Italian Serie A. Read what wrote in this match preview: “Montepaschi Siena leads the Euroleague in scoring (83.8 ppg.), three-pointers made (178), three-point percentage (40.6%), free throws made (255), free-throw percentage (80.7%) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.42 assists per turnover) this season”.

Vitoria (4-2, streak L 2) has some problems. Last week I saw them losing at home againts Khimki and I saw a very slow team. Very slow. Caja Laboral basket is too slow for the Euroleague. I think Siena defence can easily stop Vitoria tonight. I back Montepaschi Siena.

My bookmaker odds
Montepaschi 1.57
Caja Laboral 2.32
Montepaschi (-3.5) 1.87
Caja Laboral (+3.5) 1.87

My bet
Montepaschi @ 1.57
stake 10
