14-12-2016 20:30 BST - Valencia Basket v Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar - Eurocup Betting Tips
The hosts are safe and secure in the top spot in Group D in the Eurocup so they will only be playing for pride in this Wednesday night game. Knowing that they have a 6-1 record to improve on will provide the Spanish side with some impetus but it may be that their opponents have more to play. Depending on the outcome of the earlier game in the group, Lokomotiv may still finish third or fourth so they may come into this game needing a win.
The fact that Valencia have the best defence in the whole of the Eurocup so far says a lot. They have limited their rivals to just 70.4 points per game so far this season, which has been a big factor in their successful form this season. When these two sides clashed earlier in the campaign, it finished 64-73 to the Spanish side and they know they have what it takes to get one over on their rivals. Fernando San Emeterio is the leading scorer for Valencia with an average of 10.9 points per game and this tells you why the Spanish side’s defence is so important. There isn’t a lot at stake for Valencia but they should still have enough to put in effort to take this game.

Lokomotiv can achieve more in Eurocup
Lokomotiv will know what they need to do when they get on court and they’ll be looking to avenge their earlier loss to Valencia. Finishing third could help in the Top 16 so if it is still up for grabs, there is a great deal to be said for pushing the boat out and going all out for the win. If Lokomotiv do get the win, one important player will be Taylor Rochestie. This is because he has earned an average of 14.6 points per game so far this season. Other Krasnodar players who have broken into double figures include Mardy Collins, with an average of 11.7 points and Kevin Jones, with an average of 10.8 points.
