Apologies for the late preview and pick, but time was not on my side plus i was reluctant to take it and its mostly based on instinct than any info.
Aris is at its best defensively atm, and according to their statements through the week they are traveling to Athens to fight hoping for a miracle. No need to repeat that - with respect to their roster - i rate Aris the best defensive force of the league, Matzon has developed a tremendous chemistry with this team, sometimes you believe that regardless of what players he will use a defensive wall will be there no matter what. Aris has a good history in that fixture they were always a tough nut to crack for Panathinaikos and that is making me a little bit scared of taking the home side to cover which was in my initial agenda.
Panathinaikos is of course almost always reliable at home and especially in matches that have a sense of motivation they have an ability to provide their best starting from Obradovic obsession, tough defending and constant control of the pace of the game.I think what we have tonight is similar conditions for the two opponents to provide their best at least in the back part of the court, Aris has no other option to get something out of this game anyway and this is the time when Obradovic likes to show that the distance for Pana and Oly with the rest of the teams is still huge. Aris can keep it low and the hosts have no real reason to be obsesed over this match, they will try to secure the win and go for Barca mid week in an attempt to get the revenge after humiliation in Catalunia. Going for the slow pace scenario and tough defending here and skipping the handi or anything else for that matter. Sportingbet with the biggest value for thise scenario, even at a wild scenario that this goes to OT this is not included within this bet. Medium staking advised.GL!
