The Lithuania top basketball league is not shy of mouth-watering games after the February international break, and probably the hottest game of the weekend will be played in Utena where local Juventus is hosting Rytas.
Rytas and Juventus share a long rivalry history and every sword crossing between the two is a little fest for Lithuanian basketball fans. Rytas is a stronger team than Juventus, but they are quite soft as a team, while Juventus is very physical and loving to dig deep and battle in a brutal way, which helps them to cut off some of the quality advantage possessed by the rivals from neighbouring Vilnius.
Talking about the game, Juventus will try to attack the paint as they usually do as Rytas is weak at guarding baskets from close ranges this season, while Juventus is strong in this aspect. On the other hand, Juventus is not as strong defensively as they are strong offensively, which always leaves room for Rytas to confirm their leader status in such games as Rytas exposes opposition’s defensive mistakes quite efficiently. Juventus trying to attack inside, Rytas will attempt to stretch the floor with their threes and one-on-one drives from their leaders Bendzius, Girdziunas, Butkevicius, Holloway, and Cruz.
I expect nothing else but a close and entertaining thriller in Utena with a lot of fouls on the both ends. Betting-wise, here I fancy a great chance to see an eye-catching offensive showdown. If you want to big win by betting on this great prediction, sign up for the best betting software now!
