Fenerbahce vs CSKA Moscow
Nice odds on Fenerbahce no matter if CSKA is on other side. I would have expected Fener -5 or something. Fenerbahce playing at home scores 85-90 points and CSKA will have to have a great night to score that much especially since Turkish side is playing defense also. CSKA lost last two away EL games at Budućnost and Baskonia so I don't see any reason why they would not repeat it again. Fenerbahce is champions material for sure, so is CSKA, but I always give more chances to the teams that do play defense, for example Indiana in NBA is playing defense and winning many games even though their players are not super stars. They are both powerful teams and we will probably see them in Final 4 but Obradović surely will not want to lose this. It is a home ground advantage and tuffer mentality. Maybe CSKA players seem more fluent, creative or athletic but they are imo soft. They do well only if their shooting is at top level. They have Rodriguez and De Colo but Fener has Dixon and Sloukas. Imo Sloukas is the most reliable of them all, when he is on the court Fenerbahce scores in almost every attack even if attacks last longer but they do score. As I said CSKA to win this would need to have an amazing night and this time they will not meet soft defense like Real Madrid has. If I would have to pick the result it would be exactly the one Fener had against Milano 92:85, but this time I will say 90:87.
