Maccabi Tel Aviv’s recent games in Euroleague has been all offense and a very little defense. In the first game of the Top Sixteen in Turkey against Galatasaray there were 174 points scored (90-84 Maccabi win). In the second game of the Top Sixteen against Lokomotiv Kuban (in Heichal Nokia Tel Aviv) Maccabi won again 85-75 and that’s a total of 160 points. In the third game – again away one in Kaunas Lithuania against the local Zalgiris – Maccabi triumphed again outscoring the opposition 87-78 (total of 165 points). That totals into 262 (PPG Offense) scored against 237 (PPG Defense) – an average of 87.3 : 79 per game. Or – 166.3 points per game (PPG). The visitors from Serbia – Partizan Belgrade are sporting the following stats: 144 points total in the first game which was against Real Madrid at home in Belgrade (64-80 loss), another loss – this time away to Bayern Munich 65-71 totaling 136 points and finally a win at home against mighty CSKA Moscow 73-72 totaling 145 points. The entertain the following averages: 67.3 PPG Offense and 74.3 PPG Defense totaling up to 141.6 PPG.
Now, since Maccabi Tel Aviv’s offense is the dominating force in this encounter and historically Partizan more than any other team enjoys the 3 point shooting extravaganza against Maccabi (most teams somehow find their best 3 point shooting performances when it comes to Maccabi) – we at Rainmaker365.com council board strongly believe that the totals line set at 14.5 for the game is lower than what will actually be scored and therefore strongly recommend to take the Over for this particular game.
Over 145.5 -110
Best Of Luck!
