Boys and girls good morning! It’s no cold in Florence, it seems to be in Moscow this morning. By the way, Brose Bamberg boys are in Moscow today for their Euroleague Round 18 match. Bookmakers say home team will destroy Andrea Trinchieri’s band. I say bookmakers are wrong!
THURSDAY, JAN 19
18:00 CSKA Moscow – Brose Bamberg
18:30 Fenerbahce – Panathinaikos
20:05 Maccabi – Crvena Zvezda
20:15 Milano – Galatasaray
21:00 Barcelona – Efes
CSKA Moscow – Bamberg
You know, CSKA is the best Euroleague team and last week they destroyed Armani Milano. But the point is that Brose Bamberg is not Armani Milano. The German team can fight till end against the Russian giants. Let’s try a small bet..
Bamberg (+13.5) @ 1.90 stake 2/10
Fenerbahce – Panathinaikos
I see both teams have a good 10-7 record in the Euroleague standings, but Fenerbahce is not anymore the wonderful team we saw in autumn. So, why bookmakers see the Turkish team as clear favorite here? I don’t have the answer.
Maccabi – Crvena Zvezda
Is this last call for Maccabi Tel Aviv? Yes, it is, but as sportando.com reports, the blue & yellow are without Maik Zirbes, while, I got news that Quincy Miller is set to play.
Milano – Galatasaray
I am out for dinner tonight with my friends of firenzebasketblog. If not I would spend the whole night with this match as this is a very important match. Not for the playoff race, but the pride of Milano and Galatasaray. Are these teams still alive? Tonight we will have an answer.
Galatasaray (+4.5) @ 1.89 stake 3/10
Barcelona – Efes
As Barcelona official website reports, Joey Dorsey has been dismissed. That’s life! This seems to be a do or die game for Barcelona Lassa, but I don’t understand why a team with a do or die game should always do. Sometimes it dies… That’s life!
Efes (+5.5) @ 1.92 stake 2/10
