Partizan vs Igokea by FairPlayBet
Adriatic league, round 5. Partizan will host team of Igokea. Both sides are 2-2 overall after 4 rounds played.
At this point I give big advantage to Partizan and from several reasons. I think home win is sure here. IMO this is great spot for home side.
I wrote about Partizan already couple times in this season and as stated earlier there isn't much nice to be said about them. This is the weakest Partizan roster in last 20 years or so, there is also problem with coach who is not on the level of the name of this team. Miroslav Nikolic is funny coach if you ask me. Fact he is assistant in Serbian national team for me means nothing. As a head coach on club level, he is not good enough. Everything we saw while he was on the bench of Radnicki, we see also now. Namely, his teams plays no defense and the same is now with Partizan. After all 90+ points allowed in average speak for itselfs.
Having in mind this weak Partizan defense and knowing Igokea is coming from terrible performance at home vs weak MZT when allowed 108 points, over could be right play one more time when Partizan or Igokea are one of the teams, and especially if it is mutual game.
But bookies already recognized this over trend when most of the ABA team are in question so now we have too big offered totals and to be honest I am not interested to bet over on 170 or 175.
But I am interested ih betting on Partizan no matter of all said above about weak roster and terrible coach. Cause this is now good spot for home team. If Partizan can win somewhere, it is at home and in this competition. In Eurocup barely Partizan can be the right choice but in ABA yes. This is good spot for Partizan cause of above mentiohed bad momentum for Igokea. This team beat Cedevita and Buducnost, so two of several best in the league but then ruined everything with 108 points allowed at home to one of league worst. After such game, I really doubt in Igokea form now. Plus, Partizan in general always easily deal with Igokea.
IMO this is also good spot for Partizan cause as I stated in some earlier previews, they play in Eurocup mostly with younger players so they are focused on ABA. Furthermore, the last game in Eurocup was here at home, now they are again at home in ABA, so no travel at all in this week. All these tells me Partizan is ready and will win against Igokea who IMO can't bounce back after embarrassing game against MZT.
