20/11/2014 15:30 – Unics Kazan v Anadolu Efes Istanbul
The Thursday night clash in Kazan between Unics Kazan and Anadolu Efes Istanbul looks set to be an exciting affair. The home side currently has a 1-4 record while the away team enters the game with a 4-1 record and they will be on a high after they defeated the mighty Real Madrid last week. However, how many times have you seen a team struggle to perform in the match after they pull off a big shock and while the records of both teams suggest that there is a lot between them observers of the 2014/15 Euroleague wouldn’t say that the game between the sides is that big.
If you are keen to watch this game, for entertainment or to keep on top of all of your basketball betting, you will find that live streaming is available for this match, so you will be able to keep on top of all of the action.
It is easy to see why Efes Istanbul are the favourites for this game. They have an excellent defensive record, they are ranked as one of the top 5 defensive teams in the leagues, and even though they are only averaging 75.4 points per game in the Euroleague, their defensive work means that this is often enough to clinch a win.

Istanbul are on a roll
Istanbul are coming into this game on the back of two straight wins which of course includes that 75-73 win over Real Madrid. The Spanish side were threatening to run away with Group A but that result helped to reign them in, giving Efes Istanbul and Zalgiris Kaunas renewed hope of keeping pace with the Spanish giants.
If Efes are to take anything from this game, they will be looking for Nenad Krstić to continue the form that has seen him grab an average of 17.3 points per game so far.
Kazan need to find form quickly
There is still a chance for Uncis Kazan in this game though, the home crowd will cheer them and their average of 80 points per game is higher than the average score of their opponents. However, Kazan are coming into this game on a losing streak. They have suffered two defeats in their last 2 Euroleague games and they also lost their most recent game in their domestic league, coming off second best against BC Samara, by a score of 59-52. If Unics are going to grab the points on Thursday night, Keith Langford will need to continue his form of grabbing an average of 17.8 points per game.
The two teams have already met in Round 1 of this season’s Euroleague, Efes Istanbul winning by a score of 82-76 in Turkey. It is likely that the outcome for this match will be similar which is why taking Anadolu Efes Istanbul at -2.5 at odds of 1.90 is a great bet for the Thursday night action. If you are looking for the Over/Under market, going under 149 points, for odds of 1.90 is likely to be a sensible bet between two teams who are going to be evenly matched for most of the game.
