Euroleague Final Four

In Athens, so it's the reason why bookies offer us such a nice price for the best european team to win on outright market:

CSKA Moscow to win Final Four #2.68

Re: Euroleague Final Four

CSKA have shown they can beat any team anywhere

They also showed last season that they got rid of the "chokers" tag

Re: Euroleague Final Four

I agree with you about CSKA value, but I feel it won't be so easy for them if they'll meet TAU in the final.

They will also probably cover the spread in the semi

Re: Euroleague Final Four

I've already taken:

CSKA to win the Euroleague - $2.31

Today

CSKA v Malaga

Malaga's frontcourt has been decimated by the absence of both Santiago and Tusek so basically De Miguel, Pietrus and probably Jiminez will have to take on VD Spiegel, Savrasenko, Smodis and Andersen. Add to that Malaga's confidence is pretty low at the moment given they could actually miss the playoffs of the ACB this season as well.

13 points in a F4 game is so many to give up for me even though Malaga are atrocious on the road. However they are a decent defensive team and their guards played a great defensive game in the quarterfinals against Barcelona.

UNDER 145.5 CSKA v Malaga - $1.85



PAO v TAU

This is the game I am really looking forward to, basically you can't split them IMO. PAO have the superior defense, TAU the better offense so already you have a contrast in styles. Both have very deep benches but this game will depend on how Scola can overcome PAO's big men in Batiste, Tsartsaris, Dikoudis, Tomasevic & Javtokas. TAU have also show they are one of the better road teams in the Euroleague.

This game is in Athens so clearly a huge advantage for PAO, however take that away if anything I give the overall edge to TAU therefore 6 points is too many IMO. TAU eliminated PAO from this competition in Athens last year, no reason why they can't do it again.

Tau to cover +6 v PAO - $1.90


good luck

Re: Euroleague Final Four

After this match I think we'll see lots of unders, looks like the rims in Athens are extremely hard.

Lost, by props to PAO in the lead of the great Diamantidis with a beautiful defence. As I said the rims made tough job for TAU.

Gonna be an intresting final

win + loss

What an anticlimax, hopefully we get a good final. But props to PAO, they were awesome on defense, gave TAU nothing
