Euroleague, Panathinaikos – Fenerbahce (21:00): Panathinaikos has entered the season in the worst possible way. After the defeat by Monaco in the Euroleague, followed the worst from Aris, where the “greens” lost a lead of 19 points. Problems with the structure and cost of the roster are a given. But we do not think that the image so far reflects the real image of Dimitris Priftis’ team. To a large extent, it pays for the inexperience of several key players in the smooth running of the players.
Euroleague, Panathinaikos – Fenerbahce (21:00): The goal of the hosts is to be as competitive as possible. I believe that with the help of their people they will react against Fenerbahce. They really want a good look and a victory to change the bad psychology and they will fight with their nails and teeth tonight for that. Against them, they have a team with a much more complete and quality roster, which is still being sought. The team defeated the Red Star with difficulty in Turkey a week ago, scoring just 61 points.
Even in the league matches where it has beaten the clearly weaker Darussafaka and Socar Spor, it had a problem scoring. With just an average of 73 points harvests in these games, it is not convinced by the team’s performance. And that will play a role in the bet I choose tonight. If Panathinaikos appears read and focused, it can definitely be very difficult for it. To the extent that even if it loses, it will be in the detail and with a small difference in the score.
The team has no injury problems and given the two negative results he will work together to play better. Let’s bet with an “ace” at +4.5 points, which pays at the excellent 1.95 (bet365). My feeling is that it is worth, based on performance, the simple victory of the “greens” at 2.75, but I will prefer the safety of the handicap.
