money line odds
CSKA Moscow @ 1.12
Baskonia @ 6.25

handicap bets
CSKA Moscow (-10.5) @ 1.87
Baskonia (+10.5) @ 1.87

As we wrote in our Road to Istanbul Preview, CSKA are clear favorites in this serie, and, surely, the Russians are clear favorites for Game 1. Anyway, I am set to place any bet lower than @ 1.25. I made this mistake in the past, but I will not do it in the future.
