Olympiacos vs Unicaja by Demogorgon

Olympiacos enjoyed a nice start in Euroleague this season in their fist game against Baskonia 75-64, even though they did not play at home (played in Creta, over 300km distance, due to ban) and also they had several key players absent with most important their captain Spanoulis who is going to lose this one also!


●Since then, things get even worse or the Greek side, as they lost Tillie to a long-term injury and he will be out for at least 3 months, while it only gets worse, as Papanikolaou picked up a minor injury, Mantzaris (pg who is trying to cover captains absence) also picked up an injury in his foot as did Strelnieks the third choise in pg!! and all of those 3 players are doubtfull for today's match!



UNICAJA on the other hand was great as well in their first Euroleague match this season against Fener, they get a very narrow win (68-67) but they were the better team during the whole game. Right after that, they played agaisnt Betis, a mathc that i happened to watch and i liked their defensive efficiency and the fact that they got Betis top player (SG) Boungou-Colo completely out of that match as he finished the game with 0 points in over 23 minutes, so task fully achived for their defense in straight games and thats important cause facing Olympiacos with so many absences, their main goal will be to take care of Printezis (their only quality player and leader) and that should be not too difficult for the visitors today!


●There is a huge issue for Unicaja though, as today they will miss their top player so far, J.Brooks (stomach issues) and that makes things compliccated for their offense.



●Euroleague games between those two sides have always been tight affairs with many fouls, battles and low scores.


●Olympiacos has won the last 3 home games verus Unicaja over the last 4 seasons.


●Only 2 of their last 6 meetings in Euroleague had more than 144,5 points while their total average in those games was 139,3 ppg.


Considering the facts, the way both teams play and how efiicient they are on defense, alng with the many and important absences, i do not expect a high score in this match and even though the line is way too low, there is a good reason for that, so still some value here!


I also like the handicap in favor of the visitors!
