Strasbourg vs Nancy by Keyvay
I have to say this right away, Strasbourg has to win. They are playing amazingly both in the French League and the Eurocup. Coming home from an away win against Zaragoza which they won 71-73, the team is showing great composure. They are a very athletic team and you can see them defending well, as is the case with teams that coach Vincent Collet manage.
Ali Traore makes a huge difference under the hoop and i expect him to be the man who makes the difference tonight.
On the other hand, Nancy are currently stagnating. Even though they had a great start to the season, with the injury of Florent Pietrus and the terrible form of both Darius Adams and Gladyr, they seem to be suffering especially under the hoop. Roma won against Nancy decisively and Nancy has not shown any signs of future improvement.
Both teams will be playing in the Eurocup in two days and since Strasbourg have already qualified they have nothing to worry about there. Nancy however, will have one eye gazing into the next match as it is crucial for them to win it in order to qualify.
Strasbourg has the best defense in the league in my opinion and we can expect a very low scoring game.
Rather than taking up a straight win for Strasbourg at minimal odds, and bumping up the Handicap all the way to a set -8.5 for Strasbourg, I'd rather find the mid way with reasonable odds and a handicap of -6 For Strasbourg at 1.52.
With the support of their fans, i expect Strasbourg to win this match by at least 6 points.
