Fenerbahce vs Anadolu Efes by Demogorgon
●Efes is 3-2 in the last 5 meetings
● Fener is 8-0 at home during their last 8 meetings
● Over is 3-2 in their last 5 (at Fener's)
●Over is 4-1 in their last 5 Euroleague meetings
Fener is obviously not in great shape, they have a win and a loss so far in Euroleague but the main concern is their difficulty to find easy baskets in offense and control games. They lost to Unicaja 68-67 and then needed the overtime to win against Milano, both games on the road. They return at home at the right moment, facing their domestic rivals in a very important match. They might have lost their leader, Bogdanovic but there is more than enough cover and Sloukas who succeded him is doing just great so far averaging 16p, 4r, 8a and just 2 turnovers in 34 minutes in Euroleague so far. Fener should be able to record their second win today against a struggling Efes side but there is little to no value at all since the offered odds are at 1,2-1,3.
●Sloukas was rested in Sunday's league game against Gaziantep.
Efes on the other hand has not been good so far, with straight loses in Euroleague and another loss agaisnt Karsiyaka (League game) while they won against rivals Fener 84-80 (Turkish league) in the first encounter for the season. Efes has big issues in their defense, allowing 83ppg to their opponents in Euroleague and never realy came close in any of those first two games. Things are bad for them here and i cant see how they are going to trouble Fener at home.
I like well rested Sloukas, who is going to stay long in this match, to have more than 5 assists in thsi game. Efes is playing poor defense and opposing SGs average 6 assists per contest against them. Sloukas had 4 and 6 assists in the last two games against Efes, but back then he had a much smaller role in the team, while now he plays almost twice the time he used to and he has great chemistry with his team-mates, averaging 8 assists per game in euroleague so far. I really this one and i consider this line small.
