17-01-2017 18:00 BST - Szolnoki Olaj v Besiktas Sompo Japan - Champions League Betting Tips

Bottom plays top in this FIBA Champions League Group E game. Strange things can happen near the end of the season but this is surely the game when the teams at the extreme end of Group E confirm their spots and start making concrete plans for what is happening later on in the campaign.

Going into this game, the hosts still carry slim, very slim, hopes of making it to the FIBA Europe Cup, but it is unlikely. Szolnoki would have to win two games, look for a stumble from the teams above them and then hope that the record was enough to parachute them into the FIBA Europe Cup. That is asking a lot, especially when the opposition in this game is the team sitting at the top of the table who are looking for a win to confirm their place at the heap of the pile. It is unlikely that Olaj will improve their 2-10 record at this stage.

Besiktas are flying in FIBA Champions League this season

Besiktas come with a 10-2 record and a win in this game will give them guaranteed access to phase 2 of the Round of 16 in the FIBA Champions League. The Turkish team have been the best side in Group E and it is reasonable to assume that they will get the victory, or see a challenger drop points, that will allow them to make life a bit easier for them in the next couple of weeks.

It was an 89-74 win for the Turkish side when these two teams met earlier on in the campaign and no one would be too surprised if Besiktas were as strong in victory in this game. The fact that this game is being played out in Hungary could dampen down the enthusiasm from the Turkish side but they should still have enough about them to win this game.

Luksa Andric has been in fine form for the hosts, offering an average of 16 points per game while Earl Clark has assisted Besiktas to victory on many occasions, offering an average of 14.8 points per game.
