With the season fast approaching, it’s time to see what the markets are making of the runners and riders in Euroleague. With a 30 game season ahead, before the drama of the playoffs and final four, the market is looking active with the games about to begin
In a shock to few, CSKA Moscow once again enter the season at the top of the standings with bookies as the Russian powerhouse reloaded significantly in the off-season despite losing Milos Teodosic to the NBA. The Red Army are as low as 9/4 on some markets with the longest price currently available around 5/2 at a couple of outlets from sports betting dime reviews of the available options out there.
While Milos going is an absence in the assist game, Sergio Rodriguez knows how to drop some vicious dimes.
The most sweeping changes occured at Fenerbahce this season but the moves haven’t scared the market all that much. Fenerbahce can still be found as tight as 7/2 with their longest price coming in at 3/1. For the bulk of bookies there’s just not a lot to choose between Fener or CSKA.
Real Madrid over a lot more value, with Los Blancos seeing their price push out following the injury of Sergio Llull. Although some markets are putting them as low as 7/2, there are plenty of outlets where you can get a side that features Luka Doncic, Anthony Randolph, and a ludicrous amount of other serious talents, at 5/1. That price is nuts.
In terms of laying options, the market has probably developled more sense of late. The best play out there is Valencia at 50/1. This is a roster with a great shot at the playoffs, giving bettors ample room to move around once the postseason hits. Of the more established names, Panathinaikos (10/1) and Olympiacos (12/1) are good plays but you really need them to make the Final Four before you can seriously look at laying them.
