Olimpija vs Cedevita by Sharingham
In second round in ABA league, Olimpija hosts Cedevita. Both teams had started somewhat unexpectedly, Olimpija won in Zagreb vs ABA champion Cibona and Cedevita lost in Krka/Slovenia.
Olimpija has a solid team, definitely for the upper part of the table. Their victory in last round was resolved in the second quarter of the game, mostly by errors of hosts and fantastic play of Nikolov. Cibona even had a chance to turn the match but they failed. All the other three-quarters hosts won.
Cedevita has probably the best financial position of all teams in the league ,they will play Euroleague this season. Very strong squad: Bilan, Marko Tomas, Roko Ukic and others are promising good season. Last game they lost by 8 points but they played very unusual match: they had the lead by +9 in first half, played well most of the match, but in 3-rd quarter Krka played great, won that period 22:8 and turn the game, mainly due to Armstead (31pts). Ukic has been injured during first half, but I think he will be set for tonight.
I think Cedevita will bounce back with win. They are among the three main candidates for the title and to achieve top of table they can not afford second defeat on start. Very strange movement of odds, from 1.88-2.17, it looks like it's not the end, but regardless of that, Cedevita is a slight favourite...
