01-03-2017 20:30 BST - Dinamo Sassari v Le Mans Sarthe - Champions League Betting Tips
Both of these teams have struggled at points this season, and this means some will consider them lucky to be here. However, teams can often grasp good fortune and this is why these teams will believe they can go far in the rest of the FIBA Champions League.
Sassari narrowly scraped through to this stage of the tournament but after the home leg, many people felt the Italians were home with comfort and ease. The opening game of the Playoff round ended 94-72 in favour of the Italians but the away leg in Nymburk was a very different affair. CEZ Nymburk triumphed by a score of 84-63, which almost wiped out the Italians first leg advantage. Almost but not quite and it was Sassari who progressed by a single point!
The Italians finished fifth in Group E, ending up with a 7-7 record, but they have shown great strength to battle through to this stage. This is clearly going to be a very difficult task for them against a strong French side but with the home crowd willing them on, Sassari will feel as though they have a chance in this game.

Le Mans Sarthe want more joy in FIBA Champions League
Le Mans came out on top in group B with a 9-5 record, it is not as if they were the most dominant or convincing group leader. Three teams finished with a 9-5 record, so clearly the French side had enough about them to come out on top in the head to head records but they know that plenty of teams will see them as a weaker link at this stage of the competition. This game, and tie, therefore represents a chance for Le Mans Sarthe to show they can be taken seriously.
David Bell has a record of 13.5 points per game this season for the Italians, which means that he will be one of the key players for the hosts in this game. Ryan Pearson has also been in tremendous form for the away team, and he has provided an average of 12.2 points per game for the season.
The bookies believe the hosts will take control and you can take Dinamo Sassari at -5.5 at odds of 1.83. If you are looking at the Over/Under market, consider going OVER 149.5 at odds of 1.83. Bet Now!
