16/11/2016 19:00 BST – MZT Skopje Aerodrom v Lietkabelis Panevezys – Eurocup Betting Tips
The hosts are still looking for a win in the Eurocup and this is a game that sees the first round of fixtures repeated. The side from Skopje suffered a single point defeat in that game, losing out 90-89 with the winning shot coming with 3 seconds to go. This is an indicator of the fine margins that exist in European basketball and if Skopje had been able to hold on for a few more seconds, who knows how they would have tackled the rest of Group A up to this point.
Four defeats in a row will leave a team lacking in confidence but their return to the start of the fixtures has to be seen as a chance to start again for MZT. That defeat was a close run thing and if they can harness that level of performance again, this time at home, they should find that they have a solid chance of picking up a fantastic result. Xavier Thames has been a strong player this season for MZT, providing an average of 17 points per game this season. There has also been a strong showing from Josh Scott, who has provided an average of 16 points and 8.8 rebounds so far this campaign.

Panevezys need to get back to winning ways in Eurocup
The away team is one of the many sides in Group stuck in the 2-2 logjam and they know they have an excellent chance to add to their win column here. It was a close run thing at the start of the campaign but that late winner from Dontas Tarolis has proved to be absolutely vital in the course of Group A. The season started well for Panevezys but after two defeats in a row, they’ll be desperate to play this game and try to get back to winning ways. Ksistof Lavrinovic has been in excellent form, offering an average of 14.5 points, 7 rebounds and 2,8 assists per game in this season so far. Other big players for the away team include Zygimantas Skucas with an average of 13.5 points per game and Mindaugas Lukauskis who has notched an average of 10.5 points per game.
The bookies think this one is going to be close again and if you fancy the hosts to finally break their duck, back MZT Skopje Aerodrom at +1.5 on offer at odds of 1.90. The Over/Under market suggests going OVER 160.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
