A few games today and I've decided to bet on three on them, however with medium/low stakes as there has been a two week interval in the league and a few things could have changed.
Gottingen-Artland under 158 1,95 6/10 Pinnacle
I like this under the most as I see it rather under 150 points. As I said earlier on Gottingen is rather an over team but at home they tend to play much slower pace plus better defense. The last match they played as hosts was lost to Telekom 75:79 and the away team got a suberb 10 out of 18 three pointers, which is way above the average in BBL. Artland averages approximately 143 points in their away games, they play low tempo basketball and should limit Gottingen especially when it comes to 3pts efficiency which is one of the host's main weapon. Short distance attempts should provide both teams with most of their points but still Gottingen efficiency under the basket leaves a lot to be desired and overall both teams are quite well in limiting their opponents in the paint point attempts. One can expect a lot of fouls especially from the Gottingen part but both teams aren't too effective from the FT line. I expect here a 71-78 score or thereabouts.
Koeln-Braunschweig under 150,5 1,85 3/10 Gamebookers
This game looks like low 140 to me but they are a few indications it could get higher a bit. Koeln started to play more efficient basketball come the end of 2007 and thus I prefer to put a lower stake on this game. Briefly, hosts aren't great when it comes to 3 pointers or medium distance shooting. They prefer to go straight under the basket and they achieve a lot of points from the paint. If they find any problems in this department and they can't break the opponent's defense like vs Bremerhanen the other day they have a lot of problems scoring. I think Braunschweig have the abilities to limit them significantly in the paint point production. On the other hand they aren't great in offense away from home and it may be difficult for them to reach more than 70 points. But in general not an easy game to predict and if we consider that Koeln started to play much better in the last month or so there are some doubts how this game will really develop.
Giessen-Bayer Leverkusen under 161 1,93 3/10 Pinnacle
This line is more or less OK if we take statistics into account. However, the hosts, normally a high pace team, started to play more balnaced basketball in the last three games and I see their games are not that fast any more as they used to be. Maybe it's just a coincidence but I think it's much more than that. Furthermore one of the offensive leaders of the team Patrick Sparks is said to be missing and will be replaced by Obie Trotter who is regarded as much better defensive player. Once again a two week interval plus the inpredictability of the away team enforces me to a low stake for this game.
My stats so far 3-2 + 9,12
