Handicap -7.5 : +7.5
I see here room for an upset and odds are quite tempting for this scenario.
Don't get me wrong, i am not saying the Kolossos is a power that hasn't shown up yet in the league, but then again nor are the hosts - having played 2 games - registering a lucky win against a suicidal AEK at home and being thrashed by Panathinaikos last week, normal result but with no resistance at all. Providing odds like 4 (sportingbet) for the visitors here in a match they are badly expecting to maybe steal their first win (of course nobody is saying that in the team) is far more generous than logic and will use it here.
My impression of Kolossos is that they are not that bad, and actually i expect them to get better with time, i mostly have faith in their coach a very ambitious young man with experience as an assistant in PAOK and until last year in Olympiacos, name is Sfairopoulos. First signs were typical of newcomers in the league, 2 good first halves but then really surrender against AEK and Panathinaikos and some greater resistance last week in Maroussi before the outburst of the hosts it was a close call (lasted until the end of the 3rd QT). I expect the visitors to build on this performance and not give up tomorrow, i believe they want to go all the way tomorrow for the first time in the league and Larissa is the perfect opponent to try that. Problematic offense tried to be compensated by strong defense but with no real solutions in the bench and if we have a good calling day by the referees i cannot see why they can build a big lead anywhere in the match.
In all cases, i expect the first consistent and lasting performance by Kolossos, even if they go down at start i don't think they will let the game go (PG Vasilievic was clear about in press statement today) since margins can count with an opponent having similar target in the league. Declarations for a do or die match for Kolossos are all over the press, experience for Larissa in such games is greater though and that is why i am mainly investing on the spread. Small shot on the ML as well just to push my luck and get it finally with me again. GL!
