nitially i was closer to taking the under for this one, the latter starting at 155 and then dropped to 153 (now in most bookies), but even for those that kept it high i prefer taking the away side not scoring more than 73.
A derbish scent in this fixture AEK is still struggling to make it in the final 8, while the visitors are also struggling in a different direction, that being to make it in the league. Both difficult tasks if you ask me, despite glimpses of talent have been offered sporadically by the opponents. Trikala ovescored last week against Kavala, 86 is far from their average lying at 72 and AEK in a relatively bad moon being thrashed by Panionios, a match they couldn't ask for something even though they have troubled more quality sides like the EL duo in previous away matches. AEK remains a home side, the court is very small and fans are extremely close to players giving a boost especially in matches with a traditional derby character. However, this one is a needed one and i expect them to make a strong appearance also.
No need to add much, AEK whenever wanted something they had to rely on their strong - from times to times reliable - defensive line and pace control, allowing around 77 per game. This number is getting quite smaller considering the teams with a dynamic like Trikala, but even if its gets closer i still see 73 as a good margin, AEK should practically accept more than 18 per QT, while what i reall expect is one or two QT with around 14-16 which will make this bet a winner. Under 155 not my choice cause i cannot exclude AEK scoring against a troubled defense like Trikala and making the over by themselves. Medium staking for the under 73 for Trikala due to always tricky character of this kind of bets. GL!
