Big handicap on Macabi pretty much says how did they played in first 4 rounds. They've lost away game against Caja, but manage to beat Zalgiris, Partizan in Belgrade which is toughest away game in group, and Khimky, also away win. Latest results could promise great atmosphere in Nokia Arena.
On the other side Prokom started competition with 0-4 score, all of those losses were by 7 or fewer points. Also, Prokom has lost its last six Euroleague road games. it is important to mention here that this group doesn't have big favorites like Barcelona, but it is very strong and competitive.
Both Macabi coach and player Pargo are warning that this is not going to be easy game as everyone expecting, and obviously bookies with this handicap lines.
This could be high scoring game, so that explains handicap, and also is #1 reason against this bet, as 16 points in high scoring game is not same with 16 points in low scoring game.
Both teams have no injury problems.
As conclusion I will quote official Euroleague web-site: "The hosts are naturally the favorite based on recent performances, but as Prokom showed all of last season, when you take this team lightly, beware of pitfalls."
