League: Euroleague, Europe
P. MICKEAL TO SCORE MORE POINTS AT ODDS 1.65Final result: 8 - 3
Profit: 16.50 - 10 = 6.5
Didn't see it before, so the odds droped to 1.65 on Mickeal. He is for me a big favourite in this match. At the age of 34, he is one of the most experienced players in Barcelona's team. In this season in Euroleague he averages 23:33 minutes per match and 9.8 ppg. He is usually a first 5 starter in Barcelona's matches and as I said cocah has a lot of confidence in him especially in the most important matches, like this one is. In this season's playoffs of Euroleague, he averagely played almost 28 points per game and scored averagely more than 12 points per game. He is an amazing 3-points shooter with very good precentage. He is also a very good 2-point shooter and one of the best FT shooters in this competition because he rarely makes mistakes. Barcelona plays a lot of balls on him and Navarro, because they both can score from every spot. In last matches in ACB league, Mickeal played in very good form. On the other side, Sato doesn't have such an important role in Panathinaikos team as in previous years. His form is bad in this season eventhough he still had very high average minutage per game 26:34. But eventhough of some higher minutage, he still only averages 7.7 ppg. He probably played so huge role in first part of Euroleague, because Perperoglu and Tsartaris were injured more than a half of the season. Now he has a big competition for his Forward position in Perperoglu, Tsartaris, Smith, Kaimakoglu... All of those players are playing on 3rd or 4th spot of the court and I think Sato will take 3rd with Perperoglu and Smith, but I think that the starter will be Perperoglu, because I think I can say that all of them are in better form than Sato. In the playoffs against Maccabi he only averaged 18 minutes per game and only 2.8 points per game. From FT spot, he only shoots 70% in this season which is for 1.94m high forward very bad and in all other segments of shooting he is highly above 50%. His form is just too bad and I really think that Perperoglu will play at least 25 minutes per match, and Sato shouldn't score more points than super Pete Mickeal in less than 15 minutes per match. High stakes on this bet!
