The euroleague marathon continues and we have definitely reached the 8 race.
Groups are slowly starting to show their true potential, bookings have been adjusted and point choices are becoming increasingly difficult.
In the Panathinaikos race the 11.5 points line is probably prohibitive as the hosts are still unstable and cannot keep up with the differences they win during the matches even when playing with weaker teams. Many times we have seen differences at the end, especially when the two teams are at different levels and the possibility of a tie is zero.
Nevertheless in the absence of Friedett and the lack of a guard in Panathinaikos, the pie will be distributed to the usual suspects Kalathis, Rice and Pappas. I predict that Rice will get a lot more time out of the nearly 18 minutes so far as it fits perfectly into the branding of Alba Peyton Shiva's main wardrobe. With one of the 9 points per game the 9.5 given is possible especially when after suffering from gastrointestinal discomfort he has achieved 18 and 14 points.
Summing up I think that will easily confirm the line in a match expected to score high. (given first favorite for best attacking racing)
The point I choose is ... Rice (Over 9.5 pts) in performance 1.83 in Bet365.
