Serbia vs Italy

It is the European Basketball Championship going on for several days and many  interesting matches we seen. I had the chance to watch the teams of Turkey, Serbia, Germany , Italy and Greece. The tendencies are that NBA players , are much more better that the one who play in Europe and Euro League in basketball. There are also teams who have good percentage from three pointer and score a lot from there ( Serbia and Italy).

We are now here to speak about that upcoming derby. If you see the odds from bookmakers, you will think that Italy have no chance. Yesterday , Serbs smashed the Turks. The truth is that the Serbian team, was the same who made it to the World Finals in basketball previous year against US –dream team. The way Serbs are playing is the way fans and trainer want to see any team: aggressive defense, perfect points from opponent’s turnovers, aggressive rebounds and many good shoots for 2 and 3 points. Yes, they definitely do have self esteem and are really motivated to get the title.

Here come Italy now on the other side of the pitch. Galinari, Bargnani and Molinari -3 brave warriors who can score , rebound and save the team from any different situations. They made yesterday and managed to win against Germany when they had 20 points passive in the first quarter. It was a very interesting game with many points. Points in basketball are like the goals in football, everyone wants to see and celebrate more. Actually the game will be very difficult for the Italians, they are considered as underdogs , but no one knows. Also , on my opinion the game will definitely will go over points. Both teams like scoring 3 pointers, as I had mentioned in the lines above. Also I think that the plus spread for Italians worth to be played.

Before we come to the end of this post, ┬áI would like to say few words about Milos Teodosic. Every good-balanced team has its magician , its brain, its most powerful engine, who does see the game few moves before any other participating on the pitch. This man of honor and smart enough to play chess or solve mathematical problems is able to give killing passes and score unbelievable 3 pointers at any minutes. Right now when I am writing this post, I do remember of a football genius – Pirlo. Just one year ago, he scored a marvelous goal against Torino in the very last minute for the victory 2-1 .

Let’s hope we will see a marvelous basketball performance today from the teams Italy and Serbia. They will definitely do 150 % of their abilities to have the victory at the end. Also I have a point of view and something to emphasize: beware of the game of the “magicians” on the pitch. Always behind a wonderful slamdunk, does stay an incredible pass. The show is starting in few hours, do not dare just to stay and watch.Please, participate with winning bets also.

 

World is football

It is nice to be on the line again and starting my new article about the “King” of all sports. It is very delicate time of the year, when football fans and bettor have smaller amount of events to bet on, but even tough we are all passionately waiting the start of the seasons in England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France. Let me give you my expectations for the upcoming starts and prognosis:

1. England : it is the tournament in Premier League, where the expectations and eyes of the fans are more concentrated, it is the the first big championship to start. Every single one of you has a favorite team, mine is Chelsea. My expectations are for Manchester United to be fighting for the title, Manchester City and Arsenal will be the pretenders who will try to steal the title from Chelsea.

2. Spain: it was a very bad and dramatic year for Real Madrid. They have changed the coach and lots of expectations are given to the new one – Rafa Benitez. Unfortunately for him, he lost all he could in his last games with his former team –Napoli. Here in Madrid , he has something big in his first year, other wise fans and starts of the team will maintain a great pressure upon him. Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla will be fighting for the top places and also for Cup of Spain. It will be one of the most dramatic and intense Championship from the beginning till the final game.

3. Italy : the domination of Juventus is total, the few teams who could change this , have to make solid preparation and great transfers in their teams. The good news for the opponents is that Tevez is going back to Boca Junior and Pirlo is too old to be the level , that every “old segnora” fan expects from him. Lazio, Inter , Roma and Milan will be fighting for the top places.

4. Germany : it is good to see, that there are teams who are fighting, playing and beating from time to time Bayern Munich, like Wolfsburg, Bayer Leverkusen and Dortmund. This championship will be interesting till the winter pause. I have big expectations for Dortmund and Wolfsburg, you clearly remember what a great final they player for the DFB Pokal.

5. France: it this country we have 5 teams who are a level above the others. I think that PSG will have the title again. Monaco will try to take something in the tourney for the Cup of France.

I always try to write not too long articles, wanting to keep your focus and attention . And not to forget to mention, that surprises are always to come in football, that’s why all of us are in love with this phenomenon.

Wish you a marvelous vacation, brilliant summer, many smiles and do your bets with your mind, not with your heart.
