Milano wins the Italian SupeCup, but they have nothing to celebrate.

Yesterday, Sunday 24 September, OLIMPIA MILANO defeated REYER VENEZIA in the Italian SuperCup final. The white & red men suffered the Reyer basketball since the beginning till the end, winning by only 5 points: 82-77.

Our point of view is that Milano, an EuroLeague team has nothing to celebrate for this tiny win against Venezia, a Basketball Champions League team. By the way, Reyer was without Stefano Tonut, one the best player in the roster. After this win, Milano fans think their team can compete and get a playoff spot in EuroLeague this season. Good night and good luck.

Milano – Venezia 82-77

(17-26; 39-40; 55-58)

Venezia: Haynes 5, Peric 13, Johnson 14, Bramos 14, De Nicolao 2, Jenkins 14, Orelik 4, Bolpin ne, Ress, Biligha 2, Cerella ne, Watt 9. Coach: De Raffaele.

Milano: Goudelock 14, Micov 8, Pascolo ne, Fontecchio, Cinciarini 2, Cusin, Abass ne, M’baye 14, Theodore 29, Jefferson, Bertans 3, Gudaitis 12. Coach: Pianigiani.

Basketball Champions League: Cluj Napoca – Ludwisburg

On Tuesday 26 September, Cluj Napoca hosts Ludwisburg in the return match of the Basketball Champions League Qualification Round 2. Last week the German team won 78-72 in the first match of the duel. The winner of this qualification round will advance to Qualification Round 3.

Cluj Napoca – Ludwisburg 19:00 cet

Odds:
Cluj @ 2.35 / Ludwisburg @ 1.53
Cluj (+3.5) @ 1.83 / Ludwisburg (-3.5) @ 1.83

I am confident Ludwinsburg can win in Romania, anyway they already won by 6 points the first match, so also a game lost by 5 points would bring Ludwisburg to QR3. I take the underdog.

Pick:  Cluj (+3.5) @ 1.83 stake 3/10

Thomas Robinson joins Khimki Moscow

Thomas Robinson is the new addition to the roster of KHIMKI MOSCOW. The forward guard spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, a great NBA team.

SuperCup in Spain & Italy

Yesterday, Saturday 23 Septemeber, defeating Gran Canaria in the Spanish SuperCup final, Valencia earned the first official trophy of the season. Gran Canaria – Valencia 63-69 as eurobasket.com reports.

Today, Sunday 24 September, Olimpia Milano faces Reyer Venezia in the Italian SuperCup final, a game we like to bet on.

Milano – Reyer Venezia 18:00 cet

Odds:
Milano @ 1.45 / Venezia @ 2.65
Milano (-4.5) @ 1.87 / Venezia (+4.5) @ 1.87

Yesterday Milano beat Trento Basket, while Venezia destroyed Sassari in the semifinals. Last season Milano won the SuperCup, but Venezia secured the championship. Bookmakers see Milano as favorite today, but Venezia has Hrvoje Peric in the roster and this player can be the mvp in the Italian SuperCup. The match is in Forlì, neutral venue for this final. TV live on Eurosport 2 (in Italy), radio live on Radio Hinterland Binasco (in Italian).

Pick:  Venezia (+4.5) @ 1.87 stake 4/10

Saturday 16 September 2017: Reyer Venezia faces Treviso

REYER VENEZIA – TREVISO
18:00 cet

Italian Champions Venezia and Serie A2 team Treviso Basket meet today in Caorle for the 3rs place final of “Torneo Città di Caorle”, an important preseason tournament. Yesterday, Friday 15 September, Venezia lost 87-97 with Russian team Avtodor Saratov, while Treviso lost with Italian team Varese. Usually this is an unluck tournament for Reyer as they never won the thropy. Anyway Treviso is a Serie A2 team, while Reyer Venezia is a Serie A1 team, so we are confident to see our Reyer to win this match today.
