18-01-2017 18:00 BST - Pinar Karsiyaka v Khimik - Champions League Betting Tips

As things stand, Pinar are advancing to the first stage of the Round of 16 in the FIBA Champions League but there is still a lot of basketball to be played before everything is concluded. The Turkish side holds a 7-5 record in third place of the table. Pinar will have ambitions to move up, maybe even squeeze into the second phase of Round 16 but things could go against them so badly that they could tumble down to the FIBA Europe Cup if there is a calamitous run of results. That is unlikely though and there is every incentive for Pinar to consolidate their place in the next stage of the tournament this midweek.

The Ukrainian side may be rock bottom of Group B in the FIBA Champions League but they haven’t given up hope of prolonging their appearance in European basketball this season. Their 3-9 record is poor but with three teams above them in the table holding a 5-7 record, Khimik need to hold some hope a little bit longer. A win in this game is unlikely but if the away team pulls off a shock, we could be in for a very exciting last week. Of course, a loss means that it is all over for Khimik.
