Olimpia Milano vs Basket Brindisi by Demogorgon
Olimpia Milano is facing the Brindisi in this nice match and the hosts have to win this match, bounce back and boost their morale after a late drama in their previous match.
I liked Milano in both Euroleague games, in the first one they were extremely confident and got a decent lead in the first half against CSKA on the road, while that went on until the fourth quarter where they bend over the pressure from the hosts and lost (93-84). In their last match, they played against Fener, where they were also very good offensively, once more they lead the first half and did have a huge chance to win that game in regular time, but eventualy lost in overtime by 86-92.
Milano has been a very different team this season, from what w saw last year at least. They play very solid defense in the league games, allowing a very low average of 65ppg during their first 3 league games! But back to back loses, with they way they came against better sides in euroleague must have crush their morale. I trust them to win this game but fatigue is going to play an importnat role, of course taht doesnt mean that they wont cover the spread ot score 100 easily, as they have a very talented roster with Gudelock and Theodore at guard positions doing whatever they want and Micov at forward being great so far! I just dont think that they will consume themselves in defense.
BRINDISI on the other hand did not start the season well. They have lost all three league games so far, having the second worst defensive record (77,3p) and failing to find themselves with a good lead in any ofthose games. The thing is that they also have great players at guard positions, with A.Barber (15,7p) M.Giuri (15p) and they also get many points from the paint, with Lalanneand and B.Randle. I think that they will score a good amount of points in this match, probably well above 70p.
I like the over here a lot, Milano could outscore Brindisi any given day and they are looking for a massive win to boost their morale, while with the Americcans at guard positions it has never been an easy task to force them to play defense and stay focused (especially since they play games every 3 days) so i think both teams will score many points today.
