Real Madrid vs Baskonia

Spanish ACB playoffs finals, Game 2 in series best of 5

Real Madrid has lost the first game here at home. Back then the final score was 90:94. It was surprise for me, I expected home win. Though, I wasn't too sure about covering handicap so I opted for team totals, Real over 87.5 and thus I made profit on Game 1.

In Game 2 I am fully confident about Real to win and to cover. Last time I was a little bit uncertain how Baskonia will play after much less time they had after longer SF series with Barcelona. It turned out Baskonia was just fine. But I still don't give them much chance in second match.

Real will play better, I am positive about that. They had chance to turn things around also in opening game but late in the match from unknown reason forced too much on playing on center. Thus, Gustavo Ayon made some mistakes, plus missed two straight free throws that turned to be crucial. Really there wasn't reason to ball be in his hands too much in the deciding moments.

But I think Real will make adjustments and will look better in Game 2. First of all I mean better in defense while in offense you can't ask more than those 90 pts that were pretty decent. Probably first quarter (17 pts for Real) was bellow expected in first game. With better approach, more focused, overall with one stronger game opening, I think Real Madrid will take control from the early minutes of Game 2.

Thoughts on covering FT or HT handicap?

I expect to this finish with double digits advantage. Still, yesterday bet365 and few more offered it at -6.5. Now the line is - 8.5 and that's more than it was in the first game. I said double digits but honestly I don't feel to comfortable on this much higher current handicap.
But unlike previous time, Real should dominate from the start. So, maybe handicap in some early stage is not bad idea, 1st quarter or 1st half. I am really confident about Real opening very strong. That's why I took this ht ft option, and I was thinking they will lead early, leading at half, so later I wouldn't be worried about full time pts difference. After lead at ht, I would need Real only to win at the end, even in one possession game.
