21/01/2016 17:00 – Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar v Panathinaikos Athens – Betting Tips
This will be the third clash of these teams this season and Lokomotiv have won both of the previous games. With Malcolm Delaney in hot form in the Top 16, they will fancy their chances of grabbing their third win against their Greek opponents on Thursday evening. The hosts have a 2-1 record and the away side has a 1-2 record coming into this game.
It is natural that most of the focus on Lomomotiv falls on Delaney, he picked up the MVP award in the opening two rounds of the Top 16, but he is far from the only player who can make a difference for the home team. Victor Claver is someone who has the ability to attack the basket while popping up with three pointers. With Anthony Randolph and Chris Singleton also adding plenty of fire and action to the hosts, it would be no surprise if Lokomotiv were to grab the win in this one and move onto a 3-1 standing, and be full of confidence for progressing beyond the Top 16.

The Greek team have struggled for form this campaign
It would be fair to say that Panathinaikos have struggled this campaign, certainly by their own high standards. The team holds a 7-6 record for the season and they are second bottom in the scoring ranks in the Top 16. Their average of 68.7 points per game is a concern as is the fact that they rank last with respect to three-point efforts, with just a 27.1% return. Where Panathinaikos have hope is in their key players and it Nick Calathes and Dimitris Diamantidis can recover their form and play to their strengths, there is every chance that the team from Athens can get their season back on track. It will be a tough night in Krasnodar but both teams will think that they have a chance of winning.
Taking Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar at -4.5, with odds of 1.90, is likely to be a good bet for Thursday evening. With respect to the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 147.5 which can be found at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
