21-12-2016 20:30 BST - Sidigas Avellino v Cibona - Champions League Betting Tips
The hosts have a 6-3 record in this Group D FIBA Champions League game while Cibona have a 3-6 record and are at the wrong end of the table for their liking. The Top 4 in Group D is very tight and there is a need for Sidigas Avellino to avoid any slip-ups at this point as it genuinely represents a chance to push on and battle it out at the top of the table.
The home team lost out in their most recent game, falling 57-63 to SIG Strasbourg, a result which came on the back of two wins. The game between these two sides earlier on in the campaign was very tight, with Sidigas edging it by a score of 84-83. This means we could be in for another tight affair in this game but of course, home advantage may provide the side from Avellino with the chance to push on and make something of this opportunity. One player they can always rely on will be Joe Ragland, who has chipped in with an average of 16.9 points per game so far this season.

Cibona need a break in FIBA Champions League
A win against Mega Leks, by a margin of 87-77, lifted Cibona spirits and will see the team stride into this game with a bit more confidence. Before this game, the team lost two games in a row and they have shipped a number of big points on occasions this season. There have been two times Cibona have let their opponent score over 100 points. There was also the 83-84 loss to Avellino earlier in the season which means Cibona really need to up their defensive work. They can only rely on Scottie Reynolds so much, with the player offering an average of 16.2 points per game. It is a tough challenge for Cibona but they know they need to start winning consecutive games soon.
The hosts are big favourites in this game and you can take Sidigas Avellino at -14.5, at odds of 1.83. Anyone looking for the Over/Under market should go OVER 156.5 at odds of 1.83. Bet Now!
