11/03/2016 17:45 – Zalgiris Kaunas v Real Madrid – Betting Tips
These two teams are very familiar with each other and this will be the 12th time that these two teams have met in the past four years. Real Madrid Baloncesto certainly have the upper hand between these teams, having won 6 of the last 7 games, and Madrid also won the earlier clash between the two teams. That game finished 92-86 in Round 3 in the Top 16.
With a 2-7 record so far, things have been tough for Zalgiris Kaunas in the Top 16 but they would relish getting one over on the reigning Euroleague champions. The side from Madrid haven’t been at their best of late, so there will be a chance for a home win but in reality, Kaunas know that they will need to improve dramatically over their recent performances. The defensive side of the game has been worked on by Zalgiris, only offering up an average of 72 points per game in the past two weeks, but they will face a tough challenge against a team that has plenty of strength in depth going forward.

Madrid need to get back to winning ways
One Madrid player who will be looking forward to this game is Jonas Maciulis, who is heading back to his hometown. This is always a moment of pride for basketball players but Maciulis comes with plenty of back-up and support from his teams. Players like Jeffery Taylor, KC Rivers and Jaycee Carroll will offer Maciulis plenty of support from the wings but Madrid have quality all over the court. Felipe Reyes, Sergio Llull and Gustavo Ayon could all have a part to play in this game. Madrid have endured an up and down season over this campaign and they will be looking at this game as a real chance of getting back on track, once again.
The away side are big favourites for this game and you should look to take Real Madrid at -7.5, which you can find at odds of 1.90. If you have an interest in the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 161.5, which you can find at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
