15/11/2016 18:00 BST – Juventus Utena v Cibona – Betting Tips
The hosts have a 3-1 record and they welcome a side with a 1-3 record but this game isn’t likely to be as one-sided as those records would suggest. This has been a great FIBA Champions League campaign so far from the home team who made their way through the qualifiers but there is a need to keep going and there will be plenty of twists and turns in Group D before the regular season is over.
Defeating FC Porto in the qualifiers may have been the biggest task of the season for Juventus Utena but they have followed that up with some excellent basketball. A loss in Round 3 at the hands of Iberostar Tenerife has been their only reversal so far this season, sweeping SIG Strasbourg, Telenet Oostende and Mega Leks aside with some confidence. The most recent win over Mega Leks may only have been by 2 points in a 79-77 win but it shows they can grind out results too. Jamar Diggs has been a key player this season, offering up an average of 12.8 points per game this season.

Cibona need to develop a run in the FIBA Champions League
The Croatian side lost their opening three games of the season but they can come into this game with more confidence. This is because they managed a 90-72 win over KK Mornar in Round 4 of the FIBA Champions League. Earlier defeats to Iberostar Tenerife, Mega Leks and Sidigas Avellino indicates that there is a lot for Cibona to learn from but a win can change the mood and confidence of a team overnight. Ante Zizic has been hugely influential so far this season, offering up an average of 19 points and 7 rebounds per game so far this campaign. If he finds form in Lithuania, the away side may have a chance of grabbing a good win to improve their standing.
The bookies are really backing the home team for this game and you can see why taking Juventus Utena at -12 looks like a good option, and this is available at odds of 1.90. Anyone keen on the Over/Under market should go OVER 162.5 which is provided at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
