15-12-2016 18:00 BST - Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul v Real Madrid - Euroleague Betting Tips
This is the first time these two sides have ever met but of course, Real Madrid have been engaged in European basketball action in Istanbul on many occasions. The hosts currently have a 5-6 record while the Spanish side are on an 8-3 record. It needs to be remembered that not so long ago, these two sides were sitting in joint second with a 5-2 record. Madrid have pushed on but Darussafaka have toiled, which has created a notable gap between these teams at this stage.
The hosts have lost four games in a row, and this has seen the Turkish side plummet down the rankings. They still have a chance to turn their season around and there are a number of players who have chipped in at important parts of the season. Will Clyburn has notched an average of 13.1 points per game, Brad Wanamaker has offered an average of 13 points per game while James Anderson has notched an average of 11.6 points per game. The fact that there are a number of players delivering points has helped the Turkish side stay in contention but while this game represents a chance to break a losing streak, the away side are definitely the favourites.

Madrid showing their class in Euroleague
Real Madrid got off to a difficult start this season, but overall, it has been a strong showing from the side from the Spanish capital. Madrid have lost out in three games so far this season and their defeats tally to just 6 points, so they aren’t losing by much when they fall short. Sergio Llull has been the main man for Madrid this season, with an average of 18.9 points per game but he was absent last week in the Euroleague and he also sat out the domestic match at the weekend. If Llull is still absent, players like Anthony Randolph, with an average of 11.4 points per game and Jaycee Carroll with an average of 9.8 points per game have to step up.
This is a game that could go either way but you fancy Real Madrid at the moment and you can take the Spaniards at -2.5, which is provided at odds of 1.95. When it comes to the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 166.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
