Valencia vs Unicaja
Happy New Year everyone, I wish you luck in betting and in life in general!
For this game my expected line for Valencia was 86 points and I would have still taken OVER but bookies set it at 84/83 points(depending of the bookie) what goes into our favor. The thing is that Valencia can play with defense involved so I can’t play an overall game OVER…but in the last 6 games Valencia turned on to scoring method. In this last 6 games they went over this line in all games except at Estudiantes where they could have also easily go to 90 points if they didn’t miss few chances. The thing is that Unicaja relies mostly on their offensive skills with not making much effort in defense what Valencia should exploit. In last Unicaja game I was on Gipuzkoa to score over 78 points and they were at 47pts at HT and at the end only 80 points for Gipuzkoa but it is interesting that this team scored only 62 points in Valencia. Valencia is good for driving layups, shooting etc. pretty decent team. Valencia is good defensively but so is Unics Kazan where Unicaja managed to reach 80 points, so if I would have to decide I would say Unicaja will once again go over 80 points in this game, so did Zenit St.Petersburg at Valencia and by my estimate Unicaja is still a better team. In Russia, Unics Kazan had 38pts at HT and scored 49pts in 2nd HT collecting 87 points and I have to mention that Unics isn’t really a offensive team and they missed lots of shots in that game, they didn’t realize that Unicaja paint is a walkthrough…also poor Torino managed to score 47 points at HT at Malaga as well…on other hand Valencia except that they have really good shooters they do driving layups a lot and they have solid man in paint in Dubljević so they should collect points easily.
I see 92:85 result in this game.
P.S. At my bookie the odds are dropping on UNDER but I am not seeing that scenario so I will just lower the stake a bit, just in case.
