Betting tips: Virtus Bologna to smash Le Mans

The odd on Virtus Bologna is very small (1.25-1.30), but I think they will smash easily Le Mans so I recommend you to take at least -5 handicap. The main reasons for this pick are:

  1. At Le Mans in the 1st leg was tied (74-74) and now in the 2nd leg, Virtus Bologna will have the home court advantage which is a huge factor for them. So if the French squad was not able to build a big margin playing at home, how they will win now in Bologna?
  2. In the 1st leg, ex-NBA Champion Mario Chalmers had just arrived at Bologna a couple of days before and didn’t have enough time to practice with the team and to understand their type of play. Now he had another week for this, he was also rested in the game at Cantu, in order to be fresh for this crucial game against Le Mans.
  3. Virtus has a new head coach now, Sasha Djordjevic, and my personal opinion is that the Serbian is 3 levels higher than Pino Sacripanti. Even if he came in the last 2 days, I think his impact on the game will be huge and with him, Virtus Bologna will reach at least the Italian semifinals and the Final 4 of Basketball Champions League.
