Spread Pick: Olympiacos with handicap -4 at 1.90 Over/Under: Under 151 1.90 Bet Now!
12/02/2015 16:30 – Nizhny Novgorod v Olympiacos Piraeus
This game is the first time these two sides will have faced each other, but Nizhny will be hoping that their form against Greek teams continues. This is because they managed to take out both PAOK Thessaloniki and Panionios Athens in the Eurocup last season but of course, this is European basketball at a much higher level. Olympiacos have a poor record in Russia, sitting at 5-12, but all but four of these games have been up against CSKA Moscow. Removing the Moscow giants from the record sees Olympiacos sitting with a 2-2 record on Russian soil, but this probably won’t have any impact on your Euroleague basketball betting activities this week!

Nizhny are looking for home comforts
Nizhny come into this game holding a 7-9 record in the Euroleague, which includes a 5-5 record in the regular season and a 2-4 record in the Top 16. They have managed to score an average of 78.6 points per game in the Euroleague so far this season and a great deal of their success has come down to the American players. Taylor Rochestie, the US guard, has offered up an average of 19.9 points per game and an average of 6.4 assists per game. This is a tremendous run of form and if Nizhny are to grab anything from this game, you can expect Rochestie to be at the heart of it. Trey Thompkins is another US player and the forward has offered an average of 8.1 rebounds per game, playing his part in the Euroleague campaign.
Domestically, Nizhny have a 15-3 record, which indicates pretty strong form but it is only good enough for them to be sitting in third place. Their most recent game in the Russian league came away to Avtodor and Nizhny managed to grab an 88-93 win.
Olympiacos have been strong this season
Olympiacos Piraeus can boast of a 13-3 record in the Euroleague this season, calling on an 8-2 record in the regular season and a 5-1 record in the Top 16. With an average of 75.1 points in the Euroleague this season, they haven’t grabbed as many points as Nizhny but the difference in wins is notable, with the Greek side being able to combine defence and attack into a cohesive unit.
The key player for Olympiacos is Vasillis Spanoulis, the Greek guard, who has grabbed an average of 6.1 points per game and an average of 5.3 assists per game. Othello Hunter has also been an integral player for the Greek side this campaign, offering up an average of 5.2 rebounds per game.
Things are looking good for Olympiacos on the domestic front, sitting in 1st place with a 14-1 record. Their most recent domestic outing was a 77-62 home win against New Kifisia.
It could be a close one but taking Olympiacos with a -4 handicap, at odds of 1.90, is likely to be a good way to add some fun to Thursday. The Over/Under market is available and you should go Under 151 at odds of 1.90. Both of these bets are available with Titanbet. Bet Now!
