Polish DBE (6th February)
2008-02-06 Slask Wroclaw - Prokom Trefl Sopot
Also today is playing round In my lovely Polish DBE, where I see one great offer, in big hit our league. I will use huge stake for this one, which means seven units, so I hope that I will not disappoint you with this one, as this is my first as strong bet.
This match, which I mentioned before, is between Slask Wroclaw and Prokom Trefl Sopot, where I see rather easy guests win, so @ 1.74 odd for them is just too great to miss in my eyes. Hosts are really good team as with (9-6) balance they are fourth at the table, winning seven matches in a row, but I really doubt that today they can win this match. Most their opponents was rather average, so I think today, against the best team in league, they will not have any chances (odds should be about @ 1.45 - @ 1.50 for me). In last game against weak AZS Koszalin (80-73) they was playing rather bad, losing nearly all the time, winning this one in last five minutes, being so lucky.
On the other hand Prokom Trefl Sopot is the best team in Poland without a doubt, even that having (12-2) balance they are second at the table. Nowadays they are in hot form, winning four consecutive matches in league, all by double digit, also won last three out of four Euroleague matches, for example with strong Olympiakos Pireus (63-59). I think that today they should win this one quite easy as in first match they won (86-51) with Slask, without any problems.
At the end I will try to compare starters in both teams. At first, point guards are rather similar as Rashid Atkins (7.3 ppg) and Igor Milicic (6.0 ppg) are on the same level. In position two and three, Prokom has huge advantage as Torrell Martin (9.6 ppg) and Aivaras Kiausas (3.5 ppg) are far from Donatas Slanina (12.9 ppg) and Milan Gurovic (12.2 ppg); I see big advantage for guests there. In position four both teams have also similar players as Oliver Stevic (9.3 ppg) is similar to Filip Dylewicz (8.1 ppg). Another huge advantage Prokom have in center position because Pape Sow (9.5 ppg) is much better than Jared Homan (11.1 ppg), what is more they have also great Jovo Stanojevic (14.2 ppg) on bench. I think that Prokom rooster is one class above Slask’s one, especially that their bench is so good and quality.
Pick: A, Odds: 1.74, Stake: 7, Bookmaker: Pinnacle
