Turkish BSL Round 15 Betting Preview|
Round 15 of the Turkish BSL begins January 21st 2017. Anadolu Efes (12-2) and Fenerbahce (12-2) are both coming off of big victories in Round 14 and lead the standings, although the fight for first place is still very tight.
Fenerbahce have won five games in a row and are the hottest team in the BSL. Fenerbahce and Anadolu Efes are also the only two teams left in the league that remain undefeated when playing at home.
I won't spend much time discussing Fenerbahce's upcoming match against TED Kolejliler (0-14). TED Kolejliler still haven't won a game this season and that won't change against one of the best teams in the league.
Besiktas vs. Anadolu Efes Preview
The game everyone will want to watch and bet on during Round 15 is Besiktas vs. Anadolu Efes. Besiktas (11-3) are in third place right now, but they could move into second place if they win at home against Anadolu Efes.
Anadolu Efes come into this game averaging 85.9 PPG on offense and allowing 73.2 PPG on defense. When this team is able to score 80+ points they simply don't lose, but will they be able to do that on the road? It's tough to say.
Besiktas only allows 71.9 PPG defensively and they score 81.5 PPG. They have been playing great defense this season and they have one of the best point differentials (+9.6 Points) in the BSL.
Brandon Paul just signed with Anadolu Efes and he scored 18 points in his first game with the team. Paul is going to be a huge addition down the stretch and I don't know how Besiktas will be able to keep up on the scoreboard.
It wasn't like Anadolu Efes was hurting for points beforehand either. The team now has six players averaging 10+ PPG this season. Besiktas is led by Vladimir Stimac (16.1 PPG) and three other players averaging 10+ PPG.
Anadolu Efes will cover the handicap.
Banvit BK vs. Yesilgiresun Preview
The second game I want to preview for Round 15 is between Banvit BK (10-4) and Yesilgiresun (7-7). Banvit BK are in fifth place in the standings, while Yesilgiresun are playing .500 basketball and sitting in eighth place.
Banvit BK are coming off of an away loss, but they're 6-1 at home this season. Yesilgiresun are on a one-game winning streak, but they've been terrible in away games this season (2-5 in away games).
Anthony Gill is coming off a monster double-double (22 points and 10 rebounds) and Yesilgiresun would be tough to beat by any team when Gill is producing at that level, but he hasn't done that consistently this season.
Jordan Theodore continues to lead the way for Banvit BK. Theodore is averaging 19.8 PPG and 7.2 APG, both of those marks lead the team. He has several sharpshooters to dish the basketball to, which has helped pad his stats.
I recommend betting on Banvit BK to cover the handicap in Round 15.
