The classic match up between the two giants of European basketball scene will be the opening act for the Euroleague Final Four in Milan, Italy. CSKA is playing terribly lately surrendering two games to Lokomotive Kuban in a local playoff series in Russia while the bettors who had Kuban cashing on +400 and +365 twice on a row while 90% having CSKA as part of their Parlays – are on a big down side. And that is the team that beat Panathinaikos 74-44 to qualify for the Final Four. Their scoring has been terrible and they do not resemble the team we got used to see throughout the season.
Maccabi – on the other hand – is only improving with every game beating Galil Elion in a local Israeli playoff series. They will be coming to Milan bringing with them thousands of the noisy and colorful supporters who are following the team each time Maccabi qualifies for Final Four. So, Maccabi will enjoy some kind of a home advantage if to judge by the fans in the arena.
The teams have played two overs this season between them CSKA beating the Israelis flat in Moscow and Tel Aviv.
I don’t see the teams executing the defensive plays against each other as both have very good coaches able to adjust the offenses as none of those two are considered a great defensive teams as Barcelona.
I can see the game going Over easily here.
