After the amazing beginning of the season for Atlanta Hawks and the two wins in a row today they are going to play their third game for the new campaign which will be against Sacramento Kings, which team is very serious this year as well as they achieved 2 wins and just 1 loss so far.
In the pre season preparation both teams played amazing too and now the ambitions for both teams are bigger. We do not know whether Sacramento Kings are more serious team than Atlanta Hawks but away from home, it looks impossible for them to beat the young and talented team of Hawks. In the last game we did a prediction that Atlanta Hawks was going to win against 76ers and today we will make the same prediction but for the home game against the Kings.
The odds are again 1.30 - 1.40 for Atlanta Hawks. This looks a little bit bigger but the good news are that the handicap line is just 7 points which can be achieved in less than a quarter and in the NBA this is nothing actually.
Atlanta Hawks took their last night game with a difference of 15 points. Actually it was expected, at least for us as they are currently a much better team than Washington Wizards. Today there are couple of good games and one of the games is between Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets.
Dallas Mavericks are having not that bad team as in the team is still Dirk Nowitzki. Also they bought from Golden State Warriors Andrew Bogut but we cannot say that only with these two players they can make a good and solid performance in the NBA this season. Houston Rockets are not as well very tough team as they have one James Harden. Actually, he is the most serious player and we rely mostly on him to make a good performance tonight to win this game. In the last game against Los Angeles Lakers he did 17 assists and 34 points to take the MVP prize. He is a great player and with the Brazilian Nene, he can make incredible season.
It will be a tough game, it is definitely 50-50 but on these odds we will go for Houston Rockets. They completely missed to take the win against Lakers and now we believe that they will make it against Dallas, who had a tough first game against Pacers in Indianapolis after playing over time.
The regular season of the NBA has started and we have already seen one surprise - San Antonio Spurs won against Golden State Warriors away from home with 29 points difference. It was amazing performance by all the players of the Spurs.
Anyway, today there are three more games from the NBA and one of the games is pretty good for betting. The odds are not very big but at least it is good for the bettors because it can be pointed as a good and firm game - Atlanta Hawks are accepting the team of Washington Wizards. Atlanta Hawks started the season (preseason) with a good games while the Wizards did some good games but they did also some bad games against not that good teams. As the opening game here we expect the home team of Atlanta to take this game even with difference.
Usually, Atlanta Hawks are starting the regular season with a serie of home wins and we believe we can see exactly the same here. They have amazing players and this year they will be fighting to be in the playoff zone again. This game should be an easy win for Atlanta.
Yesterday we did a great prediction about Real Madrid as they lost the game very surprisingly but the small chance cost us the win. We were about to win the game but the game was voided as the result was exactly 178 points.
Anyway, today there are couple of Euroleague more. The game we liked most is between Brose Bamberg and Panathinaikos. The Germans are definitely the better team right now. Furthermore, they are playing at home and there is no chance to lose this game. The odds are very high. We do not know why the bookies are giving 1.60 - 1.70 for the home win when it is around 80% possible to happen.
Anyway, it is good for us and we will search for the home win. A little bit statistic - for the past 20 home games, Bamberg are having 20 wins. You can imagine how tough is to play in Germany against them. While Panathinaikos are not among the best away teams. For us this game will be won for Bamberg with around 5-10 points difference.
The tip today we chose from the basketball program is from the Euroleague. Yesterday we predicted that the line for the game between Sutjeska and Tirana will rise and we were quick to make the bet. Now we think that something like that will not happen so we have no rush.
The game we liked most is between Real Madrid and Baskonia. Both Spanish teams are going to play their third round game from the Euroleague. So far Real Madrid are with two wins, while Baskonia has one win against Anadolu Efes and one lost from Zalgiris Kaunas. This game will not be that interesting because Real Madrid are the better team and they are expected to win this game with difference of at least 10 points. But because Baskonia are away from home and this is a cup, different tournament than ACB we believe they will be playing mostly defensing and they will not concede lots of points.
Real Madrid are scoring lots of points recently. They scored around 170-180 points in the last 10 games and we believe that it is high time for them to make one game with less than 170-180 points. The line for this game rose to 178 points and we believe this is perfect time to search for the under here.
The game which we are going to predict next from all the basketball games for today is going to be from the BIBL and it is between the team of Bosnia and Herzegovina Sutjeska and the Albanian Tirana.
At the moment the team from Albania is a leader in this group, but they are on the first place simply because they are with 2 games. They have won their first game and then lost the second one, which they have lost it with 30+ points difference. Sutjeska played just one game as it finished with 34 points difference against the team of Karpos away from home. Now at home, they must win even with more points as they are the better team and they will play much better. After all, at home we hardly believe that Sutjeska will play that bad. 12 points are not that much what is the handicap line at the moment.
We believe that the handicap line will rise a lot after post the prediction so be fast. This is really very low handicap line for a teams like these. At the moment bet365 is the only bookmaker with odds but very soon the other bookies will open their markets too. For us, this game will be won for the home team by around 20-25 points difference.
