20/10/2016 17:45 BST – Olympiacos Piraeus v Anadolu Efes Istanbul – Euroleague Betting Tips

Euroleague Predictions - Olympiacos Piraeus v Anadolu Efes IstanbulWith both of these teams losing their opening match in the Euroleague, this game represents a chance for both teams to get off their mark. Of course, one of these two teams will have a 0-2 record by the end of this week and given the changed nature of the Euroleague season this year, this sets a big challenge to make progress at a later date.

Both of these teams were on the road last week but it is Olympiacos Piraeus who have been provided with home advantage this week. The Greeks were very poor offensively in Madrid last week where they were picked off by Real. Matt Lojeski was the top performer at the business end of the court for the Greeks but he only managed to grab 14 points. This is likely to be another physical performance from the Greeks and you can expect Vassilis Spanoulis, Georgios Printezis and Vangelis Mantzaris to make an impact on the game if the hosts are to do anything.

The Turkish side are on the road again in week 2

The Turkish team also lost out in Spain last week, falling to Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz. Having two away games at the start of the campaign can be tough but Anadolu need to hang on in there until they get their own home games. This is a team that can be quite formidable in Turkey in front of their passionate fans but on the road, they sometimes struggle. Derrick Brown was a major player for the Istanbul side last week, picking up 16 points and he’ll need to deliver more of the same if Anadolu are going to be smiling on the trip home.

The hosts should have more than enough to take control of this game and it is them who are more likely to bounce back after last week’s losses. This means you should look at taking Olympiacos Piraeus at -6.5, and this is available at odds of 1.90. As you’d expect, there is an Over/Under market available for the Euroleague and if you are looking at this game, you should go OVER 154.5 which you’ll find available at odds of 1.90Bet Now!
