15/11/2016 20:30 BST – ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne v Ventspils – Betting Tips
Both of these teams have a 2-2 record in Group C in the FIBA Champions League but such is the close nature of the group, this means both of these teams are all on the second best record. You have a runaway leader and two teams at the bottom with a slightly poorer record but there is a massive logjam of five teams slap bang in the middle of this group, which means both teams will be desperate to win this game.
The hosts are experiencing an up and down time at the moment in the FIBA Champions League. Their opening game was lost narrowly 82-83 to Varese but this was followed up with an 81-79 win over EWE Baskets. There was then a 67-81 loss at the hands of Neptunas Klaipeda but Round 4 saw a 67-61 win over PAOK. Following that patterns means that a defeat is likely but this is an ideal chance for ASVEL to break this run of results. Walter Hodge has been a crucial player for the side this season, offering up an average of 11.8 points so far.

Ventspils need consistency in FIBA Champions League
The Latvian club have also experienced the same run of form this season as the hosts, LWLW, so something has to give in this game. A one point loss to EWE Baskets started the season in a poor manner but a 74-53 victory over Rosa Radom lifted spirits. There was then a 69-74 defeat at the hands of Muratbey Usak Sportif and this was then followed by a 91-66 win over Varese. Willie Deane has been in tremendous form so far for Ventspils, providing an average of 14.8 points per game this season. He is likely to be the key player if the away side are to grab a victory in this game and nudge ahead of their rivals in the Group C table.
