League: Euroleague, Europe
CAJA LABORAL TO WIN GROUP C AT ODDS 4,80Final result: 0 - 1
Profit: 0.00 - 5 = -5
Six teams in Euroleague Group C are Anadolu Efes, Caja Laboral, Cedevita Zagreb, Emporio Armani, Olympiacos and Zalgiris Kaunas.
The bookies have set Olympiacos as big favorite, definitely because they are Euroleague champs, but the truth is they had make some changes and they are definitely not that strong, so repeating last year's success would be miracle.
One of the crucial man for Oly title was their ex coach Dusan Ivkovic, so without him Olympiacos will not be the same team.
The chance to win the group will have other teams and in my opinion great chances and nice value is in betting on Caja Laboral. Spanish team is very strong, and even they stayed without Mirza Teletovic, their star player, they definitely have great team. Teletovic is not in team anymore, but it has it's good side, since the team will have better chemistry as more players will be involved in scoring.
Many players from last season are still here, like for example Nocioni and Lampe, who even didn't participate in Euroleague last season, because of injury. Newcomers are Rochestie, who had great season in Turkey, Cabezas, who will with his experience be great replacement for Prigioni, Pleiss, one of the best young centers in Europe, Causeur and Calbarro. Selection is again made by Dusko Ivanovic hard working coach with lot of success in his career.
Some chance for the first place will also have Efes and Milano, but better value is in Spanish team, who is more consistent and had more gain in past in Europe. Zalgiris is also very good, but their ambition will be Top 16 phase, and there are small chances for them to battle for the first place in the group. Cedevita is for the first time in Euroleague and even Top 16 will be huge success for them.
From my point of view this group will be very interesting, but the best chances to win it are on Caja Laboral side, and odds on them are tempting.
