Gran Canaria vs Buducnost (By: Clinch)
Budućnost is sensation only at home games at least that is what I believe. Yes they beat CKSA, Barcelona and Baskonia at home but in away games a lot of things should go their way to succeed in this kind of games. I can see this kind of spread be covered by Gran Canaria already at HT and doubled until the end. Bookies set the line for Gran Canaria at 84 points and for Budućnost at 77 points. I am sure that Gran Canaria will score more than that and I am very doubtfull that Budućnost will go much over 70 points. Gran Canaria is different since they sacked old coach and in Milano they proved it, they played some defense and were making more reasonable shots in offense, DJ Strawberry is not allowed to waste many balls like before, no more run 'n' gun in that team. And Milano in that game didn't score as much as I expected all beacuse of the things mentioned above and if you look at Milano's yesterday game against Fenerbahce which is solid in defense they score the same amount in away game. Budućnost had real problems against organized Mega Bemax in last Adriatic league game but they managed to turn it around with defense and some three pointers. In away games with experienced team this will not happen imo. Budućnost players are not bad but they are not better than Gran Canaria, I rate Gran Canaria similar to Barcelona for some reason and would you take this spread on Barcelona at home? I would! Budućnost scored 69 points at Khimki and 70 at Olympiakos and neither of those teams played hard defense. At Khimki I had an impression that Budućnost is not even that bad and at the end only 69 points. I have to mention that at Cedevita two months ago they scored only 58 points and Cedevita is neither relying on defense. In this game is see 89:74 result.
