Zalgiris vs Anadolu Efes (By: Clinch)
The first game between these ended 79:93 for Zalgiris.
At the beginning of the EL season Zalgiris had better results on the road and many times they went over this line on the road while at home they were always around 82 pts. This time I see a great chance for that to change since on other side will be Efes which is poor on defensive end. In most of my bets I was supporting Efes to score more than 80 pts, and I believe they will go over the line again but this time I want to take the home team which was around this line even against Olympiakos, a team that slows down their opponents a lot on the road but couldn't slow down Zalgiris. Actually this would be the first time this season that Zalgiris would go over this kind of line at home. After their losses in last two rounds they will be very motivated and coach Jasikevicius probably knows they will need many points to win this game since Efes is hard to stop.
Zalgiris added Deon Thompson to their roster what should bring few more points but I would take this bet even without this news.
In the previous season Zalgiris went over this line in both games against Efes.
I see many punters are backing Efes to win but I doubt it, Zalgiris is not bad defensively.
I can see 88:84 result in this game.
