Maccabi vs Olympiacos (By: Artfeind)

Game 21 of 30 in TA Europaleague between Maccabi Tel Aviv and Olympiakos.

Its the second game between these teams - the game in Greece in october was a 88:80 for Olympiakos.

Meanwhile the israelis have won their five last home games and are unbeaten since December 2018.

Olympiakos on the other hand is really bad on the road - as they are every year. They lost the last three away games and especially the 75:79 versus Darussafaka was quite embarassing.

Tonight the guests cant count on the deeds of Nikola Milutinov and Kostas Papanikolaou, while Maccabi could start with full manpower.

If Tel Aviv wants to reach the POs, they have to win games - at first their home games. Tonight they have a good chance to win, cause Olympiakos - quite bad on the road - will miss the rebound of their main center.

This is classic example of bad bet?

Preview is good, everything you say is OK. Home advantage is quite big in Euroleague and yes Olympiacos is poor on the road. However Olympiacos is no 6 on the table and Maccabi is no 10, so Olympiacos is the better team so far, and they fight for home advantage for the play offs.

So why is this bad bet? FOR THE ODDS, everything is about the odds, 1.47 is not enought for the risk. In the long run this is a loosing bet, even if Maccabi wins today. Anyway this is my oppinion.

Good luck with your pick nevertheless.

@JamesK, Olympiako is the better team if you count the whole season.
Yet, the game is played today. And for the past weeks Maccabi is the better team.
Since they changed the coach, in December, the reality has changed. And it doesn't help to bet now counting how they were playing in October & November.

Best of luck!

I think it's worth giving the points as well 😉

So it almost looks like you fail to understand my point.

Yes Maccabi is the favorite in this game. My point is Olympiacos is still a good team and it is not a huge surprise if they win.

My point is 1.47 odds is not enough. Maccabi is not that big favorite.

When you bet and you win the bet, it is totaly different if the odds are 1.4 or 1.5 or 1.6. Yes you win one bet but IN THE LONG RUN the odds determine if you win or lose money. So many tipsters dont understand this. They only try to pick a "winner".

Like you said Maccabi has been better in recent time and people bet more on them. Well bookies know this and offers them low odds. In reality their are not that big favorites.

Thank god, there are guys like you, that try to win enough to retire.
It just depends on the strategy, what odds you take or should take.
Normally i do not place my bets on odds above 1.5 or even over 2.0. And i try to avoid to combine 2 many games.
But no problem, do as you like. Get combos of 10 and more games or odds above 5.0 to place a small amount of money and hope to get the jackpot.
I think that game tonight is so sure, that the odd is fine for the risk i have to take.
At least i placed my bet on 1.55.
Anyway, thanks for your popint of view.

Yes good way to answer, very stupid. Did you even read what I said???

It is not about odds under or over some limit, OMG are you insane. It is odds in every bet case by case. This case odds are too low on Maccabi peroid. You dont understand this and you will loose, no doubt about it.

Even odds of 1.2 can be very very good, lets say in tennis djokovic to win some much weaker player.
It is about value in the odds, and there is no value in Maccabi @ 1.47.
02/07/2019 - 20:22
I perfectly understood your point.
Do you understand what I'm stating when I say "it's worth giving the points"?
I think for Maccabi at home vs Oly on the road 1.47 is enough.

I don't care of your war with "so many tipsters". If you get out of that box you will easily see I think Maccabi is favourite not to win, but to cover the spread.
So I'm not missing your point, it's just that I don't share it.

Best of luck!

Long story short:

You think the odds are 2 low / the risk 2 high.
I think the risk is fine and the odds high enough to place my bet.

No need for that lowlife speech.

At least i dont care if u think i am stupid or insane.

Wish you good luck - seems like you are supporting two familys with your betting-knowledge 8)

Some random dude opened the pandora's box and now everything is about value. Odds are too low for this, odds are too low for that. No value here, no value there. You can say that about pretty much every single bet. Get over this stupid theory guys, especially nowadays where live betting is a REAL THING.
This is a high profile game just a couple of hour before kickoff and if the bookies offer Maccabi at 1.50 then they have 66% chances to win, period!
All this discussion just about numbers. Does it matter that Sferopoulos knows Olympiacos' leaders (Spanoulis, Milutinov, Printezis) better than anyone else and he would probably fucking love to win this game and get his 'revenge'?

Sorry OP for that burst in your post. By the way, Milutinov and Papanikolaou are available.

@Artfeind, you started the low talk so thats what you get back. Try to be sivilized in your comments, this is not personal against you. Only against your very bad tips.

You are in the red so you are loosing bets and money. OK OK you only have 7 tips so far so lets give you a change. I will follow you an lets see what your total profit is after 50 tips. I think it will be in the red.

Halftime and Olympiacos is in the lead. Maccabi can win, absolutely, but it does not look like it is sure thing like you said.
02/07/2019 - 23:00
K, mate. It'll be the last time that you see me answering to your crappy arguing.
I dont know what do u think who you are, that YOU could give me a chance. That you think you need to have a look on my profit.
If you think my tips are bad, just go on and be happy that you got the brain to judge the odds.
At least i am sick to death of that bullshit talk of guys that are thinking they got the know, although they ruined themselves already in every aspect.
So please!!! Farewell.

With my bets on Maccabi, I watched the whole game. The officiating was, once again, a disgrace. Yeah, Maccabi might get away with it today but that's bullshit.
02/07/2019 - 23:47
Maccabi won with 4.4 sec left and with one point, LOL. And this you call sure thing, you just got lucky. And got very low return on your stake. It is obvious you will lose with your tips.

But I am sure you will trash talk about my crabby comments and think you are worlds best tipster:). Just hope people who read your tips understand you know nothing about betting. 1.47 oh my.
