I find this - and i hope Unicaja players and coach - as the perfect opportunity to make up for the last week loss at home against Tau. And when Ladbrokes does not follow the general trend (providing even 2 points margin for the hosts) and provides Bilbao as the favorite i can't help but going with the better team here at very good odds.
I won't say much, i believe Unicaja will be easily in the final 4 of the league, i saw them against Real and i was really impressed by the chemistry level among them especially for this stage of the ACB. More solutions offensively, still tough to beat in the defensive side, they might had an upset with Herman Gabriell (there are still rumours for Haiskip being out tonight), but all in all i consider them a class above Bilbao adn when motive is there i will use it.
I have respect for Bilbao (i have used a long term bet for getting the Eurocup at crazy odds of 17.0), mostly for the way they have been moving in the market and getting all they want in critical positions for the team. However, this year, it still doesn't work, look for instance their terribel performance against Menorca (55-75) last week, they were demolished big time. of course Bilbao have the habit of bouncing back after big losses but against Unicaja this won't be easy since both teams want desperately the win tonight, and usually when motivation is equal, class makes the difference. Full team for the hosts, but still key players like Q. Lewis and R. Seibutis have not linked with this year's team.
Just using the best offer for the visitors available, i have to be honest and say that i wouldn't bet on them at odds like 1.70, but it's all abut value isn't it? GL!
