10/12/2014 17:00 – Neptunas Klaipeda v Galatasaray Liv Hospital
As you would expect from the penultimate round of the 2014/15 Euroleague, qualification places to the Top 16 are at stake. This Group D game is crucial for the hopes of both teams, although qualification is only in the hands of Galatasaray going into this game. However, Neptunas know that qualification can be removed from their grasp if they lose and Laboral Kutxa Vitoria win their game on Friday night. This means that both teams have everything at stake on Wednesday night and a loss would be catastrophic for either team.
The two teams have met this season with Galatasaray winning the game at home in November by a score of 94-68. With a total of 162 points on the scoreboard, there was a great deal of excitement for watching fans but it may be that this will be a tighter affair with both sides knowing the consequences of losing. Then again, if one team can take a lead, we could see a thrilling game that goes from end to end as both teams look to fatally wound their rivals.

Neptunas have been strong at home this campaign
The home side go into this game with a 3-5 record but more importantly, it is a 3-1 record at home, which will give them confidence. If Neptunas are to keep their hopes alive, they will need a big performance from Deividas Galius who has averaged 13.6 points per game in the Euroleague. He has been assisted by Donatas Zavackas who has averaged 12.8 points per game this campaign. Over the Euroleague campaign, Neptunas have averaged 77 points per game. In their domestic league, the home team can boast of a 13-2 record, although they are only sitting in third place.
Galatasaray need to shake their poor away record
Galatasaray also hold a 3-5 record but perhaps crucially, they haven’t won a game away from this season. Their fans will be clinging to the fact that this may be the game that this record changes but it does indicate that the Turkish team is quite fragile when they travel. Their key players so far this season have been Zoran Erceg, who has averaged 17.4 points per game, and Carlos Arroyo, who has picked up 15.1 points per game. The team have scored an average of 71.5 points per game in the Euroleague, which is fewer than their rivals. Like Neptunas, Galatasaray are also third in their domestic league, sitting with a 6-3 record.
Due to the tight nature of the game, taking Galatasaray Liv Hospital with a -2 handicap and odds of 1.90 seems to be a sensible bet. Given that both teams are desperate to win, which is likely to become bigger than the fear of losing as the game continues, it makes sense to go Over in the Over/Under market, and going Over 159.5 makes perfect sense. Bet365 is offering both of these bets and if you want to watch this big game live, we can help. Bet Now!
