02-02-2017 19:00 BST - Zalgiris Kaunas v FC Barcelona - Euroleague Betting Tips
This is a game between two sides who hold an 8-12 record for the Euroleague season so far and a win would be very helpful in the pursuit of a playoff spot. Both teams have toiled at times this campaign, as their respective records indicate but they have players that can make the difference and we could be in line for an interesting evening of basketball if these sides click. Kaunas come into this game with a two-match winning streak while Barcelona have lost four of their five most recent games, which isn’t good enough for a team looking to progress in the tournament.
There is a sense of familiarity between these sides but Barcelona have the edge, certainly historically between them. This is because in 21 clashes since 2000 it is the Catalan club who have won on 19 occasions. This will give them some confidence but this is not a strong Barcelona team at this point.
One thing the Catalans do have in their favour is the fact that they won the earlier clash between these sides, coming in at 92-86 in that game. There was a big showing from Tyrese Rice in helping his side win the game, offering up 20 points even though Brock Motum provided 26 points for the losing team.

Barcelona have struggled in Euroleague action this season
Paulius Jankunas is the player most likely to succeed for the hosts and he has a record of 12.6 points per game and an average of 6.3 rebounds per game. Brock Motum has offered an average of 11.6 points per game and Kevin Pangos has provided an average of 8.9 points per game and 3.1 assists per game. Barcelona will again look to Rice, who with an average of 14.7 points per game, is the only Barcelona player in double figures for points this season. The Catalans have the weakest scoring record in the league, coming in at 72.4 points per game, and it is clear that this has been a big failing of them this season.
This is a game that is very hard to call but you can take Zalgiris Kaunas at -1 at odds of 2.00 in this game. If you are looking at the Over/Under market, go UNDER 151.0 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
