Cedevita vs Buducnost
ABA liga playoffs, semifinals, Game 2 in series best of 3
Buducnost leads 1-0 after they won the game 1 at home court. It was really outstanding match and with thriller finish, 84:83.
Buducnost was holding everything in their hands in the first half but then we saw very strong third quarter from Cedevita and the Croatian team was very close to make road victory. They had 4 pts advantage in last minute of the game but Nemanja Gordic with one 3 pts shot and then with free throws brought a win for his team.
Gordic was man of the match with 23 pts for Buducnost while on the other side Nichols with 19 and especially Cherry with 24 were the unstoppable in the team of Cedevita.
Although it was a little bit lucky win at the end, I rate Buducnost as a team on higher level. After all, so far season confirmed this. Overall in the season, it's 5-2 now in H2H in favor of Buducnost (beside game 1 of this series we had 2 regular season meetings, 2 games in Eurocup, one at the start of the season in ABA Super Cup and one friendly game).
I was leaning towards Buducnost also today but yesterday we had +6, now only +4 pts in best case but in most bookies only +3.5 pts. So at the end I opted for this bet:
Winning margin 1-5 pts. You can find it in bet365 as well in William Hill for same odds, 2.80.
I strongly believe we'll see another very close match. And who ever wins, I doubt it would be more than 2 possession game.
