No reason for repeating how good the roster of Kyev looks (and i am saying looks and not is because i haven't seen those guys playing together - there is always the factor of chemistry involved). I am not at all convinced however that Kyev atm has a better squad than Panellinios who seems to be slowly get on track, at least this was shown in the easy win against decent PAOK in Thessaloniki. I also rate their 2 wins against Bonn (with 15 points both) as good achievements, Bonn was no toy to mess with they were decent enough to create problems to a non concentrated side.
Does this mean that Panellinios should be offered at these ridiculous odds?Certainly not even though Jadran correctly pointed out the peculiarity of this competition where a good margin loss is still acceptable. Does this mean on the other hand that somebody should go with the underdog just because f the odds set falsely? Again not for me; Only reason that could tempt me to go with the Kyev side (spread and not ML though) is the last performance of the hosts against Kavala, of course motivation was not so high but then again it was not the same Panellinios that thrashed PAOK and Bonn. Sportingbet is one of the few bookies already having provided the spread at 6.5 and this could be a decent choice since Panellinios is not a typical home court side this year and i am pretty sure they will not be thrashed away or anything. Zouros knows that the difficult match is the one played at home and i think he will be satisfied even with a small margin win.
Due to quality of both teams in the offensive part and because i believe its gonna be close i can see a small value in the line of 143, thus i will suggest a medium bet to this one. There is always a chance of this going easily under i have to say, but i trust that at least one QT will be loaded. Hopefully more than one. GL!
