19:20 ALBA Berlín 1.40 RheinEnergie Cologne 2.70
Odds from bwin
This match will be played in ALBA homeground Max Smelling in front of 8500 frans (7200 tickets already sold yesterday) ,so ALBA will have big fans support.ALBA prepared for this season in Spain where they had 5 matches,and lost 4 but it was against great teams such as Girona (twice),Pamesa and Joventud,and won only against Murcia.This is pretty new team,3 players from starting 5 last year left the team (Lollis,Price and Penberthy) but they signed some new players such as Avery (played in grece last year) who already become captain,coach Rodl decided it after preparations in Spain,then Owens,Archibong,212 cm tall player from Cameroon Boumtje-Boumtje , Ford, and stanojevic,Canak,Mamic and Green stayed in the team,so they are first candidates for the title again.
They play against champions Koln,who made big surprise last year,but all in ALBA think its paytime.Koln is stronger then last year,mthey signed Mallet from Bamberg,Faison who played very good in Charleroi so they are stronger.For this match coach Obradovic has problems because Faison and Strasser are out for sure while Nadjfeji and Mallet are strong doubts and its still unknown will they play.Obrdovic says that this is their strongest opponent in past month,and that ALBA is strongest candidate for the title this year.
I think -4.5 on ALBA is good bet,but still its Germany basketball and its opening match - 5/10 for me.
This damned 3 pointer cost me a fortune in the end :evil: ...... Unbelievable Game.......
