CSKA Moscow vs Anadolu Efes
Interesting game, both very powerfull teams in offensive sense and both with soft defense...nevertheless the line for the game is high I believe it will still be OVER. But I am more confident with Efes scoring more than 81 points. CSKA to reach over 90 points would have to have a good game with not much errors, but it is only 23 points a QT and it would be Over and I see it as very probable. All in all Efes proved in Athens and in last round they can score 30 points in some QT's and also their top shooter Beaubois is in the team again since last game and they reached 110 points. Efes in full effect is a 95 points team so I can't find any reasoning why they would not go over the line, as I said CSKA is not defensive team, neither is Efes, so we could see NBA alike kind of game with fast pace and good shooters from both sides. Maybe bookies believe CSKA will put up some defense since they lost in last round, maybe they will but I still believe in Efes, the only team that managed to beat Fenerbahce this season. For example even in Turkish championship, with mixed squad, never mind the opponent, Efes goes over 80 points in 95% of their games. I also believe Efes will lose this game since CSKA lost in the last round, they will be more hungry to win and I give more props to CSKA coach than to Efes coach Ataman who lost already won game against Real Madrid and didn't seem like it bothers him. I can see 93:88 in this game.
