Baskonia vs Khimki (By: FairPlayBet)
Euroleague, Day 24
Baskonia will host team of Khimki. Much more important game for home team who with possible defeat would be in very difficult position in race for top 8. But although I think Baskonia can win here, I don't like too much such bet. IMO odds are low, meaning handicap is too big.
I will go here with one unusual bet for me, I will go with players totals. It's SHVED ALEXEY to score more than 21.5 pts.
IMO this is good offer. Everywhere else you can find it at 22.5, Unibet offers it at 21.5.
The best player of Khimki has averaged 21.9 pts in the 23 games so far. Though, he is 11-12 so far when it comes to covering this 21.5. But have in mind Shved was better as season was going on. So he went over 21.5 in even 10 of the last 14 games in EL.
One of the reasons why I believe he will go over also today is the fact it's expected this will be high scoring game. Namely Baskonia is at home and after CSKA Moscow and Real Madrid, they are the highest scoring team in Euroleague. So I think Baskonia will be in charge here for one fast pace, pace that Khimki hopefully will be able to follow.
I also like about Shved the fact he is taking too many shoots. Even when things don't start well, this guy will continue to fire three's from the downtown.
