What’s going on in FIBA Europe Cup

Just some notes about FIBA Europe Cup, waiting for the 16 games of Gameday 2.

Group A: Antwerp Giants (Belgium) leads the group, next match is in France against Le Portel.

Group B: Benfica (Portugal) is the team to follow. The game with Bakken Bears (Denmark) is the big match of FIBA Eurocup Gameday2.

Group C: Kataja Basket (Finland) lead the group, but will be they able to defeat Porto (Portugal) this week? I am not so sure.

Group D: Keravnos (Cyprus) is the king, BC Balkan (Bulgaria) is the danger.

Group E: Cluj Napoca (Romania) looks for a wonderful future, but an away win at Dynamo Tblisi (Georgia) home, is not so easy to get.

Group F: good news for the Israeli basketball lovers: Bnei Herlziya leads the group. Next match is at home against Tsmoki Minks (Belarus).

Group G: Demir Insaat (Turkey) fans dream a wonderful future in Turkey, meanwhile the shine in Europe. Next enemy: Mons Hinault (Belgium).

Group H: Szolnoki Olaj had a good start, but will they defeat Falco Vulcano (Hungary)? On wednesday we will have the answer.

The Italian Odds

We are just 90 minutes to Pistoia – Orlandina Basket the opening game of another wonderful italian sunday. With the help of Let’s check the odds for the upcoming Serie A games.

Sun, 22 October
🏀 Serie A round 4

12:00 Pistoia – Avellino
18:15 Milano – Brindisi
20:45 Virtus Bologna – Sassari

Mon, 23 October
🏀 Serie A round 4
20:45  Brescia – Varese

ℹ️ Milano (Italy)
17 Oct 2017 – 18 Feb 2018: “Toulouse Lautrec – The fleeding world” at 
Palazzo Reale Milano

Pistoia, Italy
🏀 Pistoia 1.66 – Avellino 2.20
It’s too late for posting any serious betting tip. I line Pistoia (2-1), but I just want to underline that Avellino (2-1) is one of the favorite teams for the title.

Milano, Italy
🏀 Milano 1.11 – Brindisi 6.43
What should we say about Milano (3-0). Italian newspapers and italian websites eveyday write Olimpia Milano is a strong team, but they don’t explain wht the Red Shoes always lose in EuroLeague. Anyway, Brindisi (0-3) is not an EuroLeague team.

Bologna, Italy
🏀 Virtus Bologna 1.44 – Sassari 2.78
This season Virtus Bologna (2-1) play at Paladozza in the city center, while in the past season the Black V played at Unipol Arena in Casalecchio di Reno. Sassari (2-1) and their supporters will have time to visit to town, perhaps.

Brescia, Italy
🏀 Brescia 1.44 – Varese 2.76
Another Lombardy dery is here. Brescia (3-0) looks for a win in order to stay with Reyer Venezia at the top of the Serie A standings. Varese (1-2) is involved in the relegation battle, anyway it would be a mistake to underrate Varese. Be careful.
