Barcelona vs Panathinaikos
The first game between them ended 76:70.
After small crisis in Barcelona team they play much better all the way to their Baskonia game. On other hand Panathinaikos had that "new coach" psychological effect in their first game against CSKA but I believe it has already vanished. They played next game against Olympiakos with an expected result and again poor away offensive performance and in last game they beat Bayern in the same fashion they beat Barcelona...in a low scoring game.
Barcelona plays defense, they held Baskonia at 70 pts on their court, they held Efes at 65 points, Darussafaka at 65 pts...at the same time they are decent team in all offensive aspects and they can explode in each game and score 90 points.
If we would expect that Panathinaikos will have their usual game in terms of offense and Barcelona their offensive and defensive game at least on average level then I see this bet go through in 80% situations, not to mention that on a good night Barcelona can score lots of points and they do seem being in a good shape.
I could see 83:69 result in this game.
