18/10/2016 17:30 BST – Bakken Bears v CEZ Nymburk – Betting Tips

Group A is getting a great workout on the opening night of the FIBA Champions League. With four games taking place, all of the teams are in action, and there will be an early chance for the sides to size each other up and think about the campaign that lies ahead. It is not as if these games will decide who qualifies and who doesn’t, but they could have an impact on the final standings in the group.

The Bears know that they are classed as the outsiders in the group but they made a couple of interesting acquisitions in the summer. Steffen Wich is a player that is likely to provide a tactical insight on the court and he will be vital in these European games. DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell is another big capture and while this one has an element of risk, if it pays off, the club will have done extremely well for themselves. Many people say that retaining Michel Diouf is one of the best decisions the club made during the close season, and they’ll be right up for this home game.
