I was waiting for lines to be published hoping for something above 150 and here we are; I certainly think this line (already lower at many bookies - 147 at Ladbrokes for instance) will move lower, thus i am shooting immediately and for those interested i suggest you do it now.
No reason absolutely to provide this line here, we are talking about two teams fully concentrated in their defense, i won't let 90 points that Milano received fool me here, i could respond that this is CSKA afterall or describe other factors like Milano firs appearance in the EL and fact that the game relaxed after the winner was evident. I firmly believe that true image of Milano was the one against Caserta, with good defense but also true problem in scoring easily (60 pts. in CSKA, 68 against mediocre Caserta, etc.). The latter will most probably be enhanced by the absence of Bulleri who had a surgical operation in his left hand and will be away for about 2 weeks.
Efes demonstrated similar abilities/inabilities against Partizan the other week, they had problems to find the net easily and at the same time they had to call for Ataman's plan in defense to get their first win in the EL. I have already expressed my view on Efes this year, however absences of Kasun, Preston Shumpert and Baris Hersek, have accordign to Ataman ''destroyed their rotation'' and Efes cannot find a rhythm yet. Still on Turkish TBL they dominated showing some of their great potential, but this is no specimen enough for me.
I have to admit, my first lean was for Efes to get the win here, but odds moved down and i can't find any value especially given that i kind of like Milano, i don't trust at all the first match against CSKA, i have another view on this team which i expect from time to time to deliver good performances. Nothing however can keep me away from the under choice, i thing it's gonna be close, maybe an offensive start (like Milano uses to do) will occur but i can't see that continuing on a long basis within the match. Main offensive weapons are missing from both sides and Ataman is no jerk to try run or accelerate the match pace when he has an a theoretical advantage inside the paint even without Kasun.
Taking the line before its slightly corrected here, medium to high stakes due to value inherent in the call, despite we still have a lot to see from both teams to gather a complete opinion. GL!
