Boban Marjanovic is the Euroleague player to watch

euroleague-fc-barcelonaIt is clear that Boban Marjanovic is one of the most important players in the entire Euroleague, not just for the team from Belgrade. He is currently the leading player in the 2014/15 Euroleague for the average performance index rating, standing at an average of 24.3 per game for the season so far and he is also the leader for rebounds, averaging 10.4 per game. When you add in the fact that he is currently providing an average of 16.1 points per game this season, he has plenty in his locker and Barcelona will need to be wary of him. Another strong player for Crvena is Marcus Williams who has provided an average of 6.2 assists per game this season.

Barcelona also have a very dominant center and you can bet that Ante Tomic will be involved in a lot of the action on Thursday night. Tomic has delivered an average of 11.7 points per game this season and he has also served up an average of 7.6 rebounds per game this season too. This places him as an integral figure for Barcelona but Marcelino Huertas is also a key player having served up an average of 4.6 assists per game this season.

Crvena are doing well in the Adriatic League

Crvena sit at the top of the Adriatic league with a 23-2 record and their most recent game in the league was against KK Igokea, with the team from Belgrade winning by a score of 85-80. Barcelona are currently sitting in fourth place in the Spanish league with a 17-7 record, a record they share with Bilabo who are in third place in the Spanish league. The most recent domestic outing for the Catalan club was an 88-82 home win against Baloncesto Fuenlabrada.

Taking Barcelona with a -6 handicap, at odds of 1.90, is a sound bet for Thursday night in the Euroleague. Going OVER 154.5 in the Over/Under market, again at odds of 1.90, is of interest.
