PANATHINAIKOS – FENERBAHCE
Fenerbahce leads 1-0
In Game 1 the key player was Bogdan Bogdanovic, who scored 35 points and got 5 rebounds. Fenerbahce is a lucky team to have such a great player in the roster. Panathinaikos had K.C. Rivers as star with his 16 points and 3 rebounds.
Now Panathinaikos fans want to see their team to get a win and to cancel the bad night lived on Tuesday. Pana coach Xavi Pascual admitted that Fenerbahce were mentally tougher than his team, as talkbasket.net reports. In our opinion Pana is strong enough to get a revenge.

Panathinaikos head coach
It’s Friday morning, – Friday, April 7 – and there are still 4 Round 30 games to play to close the Euroleague regular season.
Anyway, as Eurohoops.net writes, two playoffs duels are already sure: Panathinaikos – Fenerbahce and Olympiacos – Efes.
Home court advantage in the playoffs is important for sure. We are very happy that we will play in front of our people, our supporters.
Panathinaikos head coach
Efes Istanbul defeated Maccabi Tel Aviv securing us a good Thursday for our bank account, today another Turkish team is called to a win: Darussafaka.

REAL MADRID opened the door to CSKA Moscow at the top of the standings and the Spanish giant could drop to second place after this loss, court-side.com reports.
CRVENA ZVEZDA has to say thank you to his player Ognjen Kuzmic (15 points – 7 rebounds), a player who love to score against Olimpia Milano. Eurohoops.net report us about the 71-78 win of the Serbian team in Italy.
UNICS KAZAN – Zalgiris Kaunas opens the Euroleague Friday games. It’s set to be an important game for Unics players Ruslan Khabirov and Azat Tukmakov, both poised to make their respective EuroLeague debuts in their first appearances this season as euroleague.net writes.
DARUSSAFAKA odds are hot today. Two days ago money line odds for Darussafaka – Barcelona showed Darussafaka @ 1.58, yesterday it was @ 1.56, while today it’s a @ 1.49 as Oddsportal.com reveals.
🏀 Euroleague Round 26 preview 🏀
Yesterday we got some money backing Baskonia, today we focus on Greek giant Panathinaikos.
FRIDAY, MAR 3
17:00 Unics Kazan – Efes
18:15 Darussafaka – Panathinaikos
21:00 Barcelona – CSKA Moscow
UNICS KAZAN (7-16) – EFES ISTANBUL (12-11)
Kazan has Euroleague top player Keith Langford, but Kazan is not only Keith Langford. This is a great team and Efes should be afraid of them. Anyway no betting tips here.
THE MATCH OF THE DAY
DARUSSAFAKA (11-12) – PANATHINAIKOS (14-9)
At this point of the season I can say that Darussafaka is not a team, it’s a big question point! Journalists love them, but they are in 9th position, so, I guess, something is not working in the right way at Darussafaka. I know David Blatt is an excellent coach, but I wonder if he can drive his boys to a win against Pana. Bookmakers say yes, I say no!
Panathinaikos (+2,5) @ 1.87 stake 4/10
Barcelona, Spain, EU
BARCELONA (9-14) – CSKA MOSCOW (17-6)
What’s wrong with Barca? Ok, they had a lot of injured players, but anyway, they sees to be a crazy team with or without injured players. By the way, Barcelona lost the last Liga ACB game: 83-81 with Estudiantes, scoresway.com reports.
CSKA Moscow @ 1.38 stake 2/10
– Be careful !! –
I suggest to place only single bets and to place few bets. I am set to bet only on Darussafaka – Panathinaikos, the match of the day, as I like to place maximum only 1 bet for each day.
