MONTEPASCHI SIENA – OLYMPIACOS PIREAUS
Siena (12-4) is a strong team with great experience. The italian team is still without Rimantas Kaukenas, but the coach Simone Pianigiani has already shown he is ready to solve this problem.
Probable starters: McCalebb, Thornton, Moss, Stonerook, Andersen.
Olympiacos (9-7) is the underdog in this playoff series. In my opinion they can get a win when they will play in Athens, but I don’t see any chance for the Greek team in Siena. As you live in Italy, you can watch the game live on TV channel Sportitalia.
Probable starters: Mantzaris, Spanoulis, Papanikolau, Antic, Dorsey.
SIENA @ 1.25
RESULT: Siena – Olympiacos 75-82
♦ money line bet: lost (- 4.00 units)

Khimki Moscow – Lokomotiv Kuban
Khimki (11-1) is still unbeaten at home. Khimki and Lokomotiv already met in Russian League this season with Khimki prevailing at home, but losing in Kuban.
Lokomotiv (8-4) this season won five of its six away game in Eurocup. I have no doubts this is a strong team, but anyway, not strong enough to win in Moscow! By the way, I go on betting only micro stakes in these days: stake 3/100 is my choise for this match. You can watch this match live in TV channel Eurosport 2.
Khimki Moscow @ 1.15
RESULT: Khimki – Lokomotiv 81–72
♦ money line bet: won (+0.45 units)

Enel Brindisi – Morpho Piacenza
Brindisi (14-8) is in 4th place in Legadue table, a good position, but this club is chasing 1st position as they want to be promoted in Serie A at the end of the season.Just few weeks ago Brindisi won Coppa Italia, a throphy reserved to the best 4 league teams..
Piacenza (10-11) is in 8th place and their target is a playoff spot. Last 5 games: 2 win and 3 lost for Piacenza. This team is not a top team of Legadue. I see they can lose tonight at PalaPentassuglia of Brindisi.
Brindisi @ 1.37
RESULT: Brindisi – Piacenza 69-66
♦ money line bet: won (+1.11 units)

Los Angeles Clippers – Atlanta Hawks
The Clippers (23-17) lost their third straight at Staples Center with a 94-85 defeat to Boston on Monday. I know, as I bet on Clippers win! After winning 10 of their first 12 at home, they’ve no lost 5 out of 7. Tonight they must win. I bet on Clippers’ pride.
The Hawks (24-18) have a 12-12 record on the road. By the way, today I bet only stake 2/100 for each bet as I have already lost 20 units this week!
Clippers @ 1.36
Under 185.5 @ 1.87
RESULT: Clippers – Hawks 96-82
