22-12-2016 20:00 BST - Brose Baskets Bamberg v Olympiacos Piraeus - Euroleague Betting Tips

Brose Bamberg v Olympiacos PiraeusThe hosts are in the pack of teams at the foot of the table while the away side comes into this game part of the pack that is tucked in neatly waiting on CSKA Moscow to slip up or suffer difficulties. That may involve a long wait but this means that both teams should be well up for this game and with Brose Bamberg holding a 4-9 record and Olympiacos Piraeus holding a 9-4 record, this is shaping up to be a big Euroleague game on Thursday night.

These two teams have met on four occasions in the Euroleague and the German side hold the upper hand with a 3-1 record. This will provide some hope for the Bamberg side coming into this game and if they can extend that lead, the Brose fans will enjoy a happy Christmas.

A Tuesday night loss to Madrid was a pain for the Germans but if Nicolo Melli finds form, this game could allow the hosts to bounce back. Melli has averaged 13.1 points per game, and he has been at the heart of the positive things that Bamberg have achieved. Other key players in the German side include Darius Miller, who has provided an average of 12.6 points per game while Janis Strelnieks has offered an average of 10.9 points per game. This isn’t a hopeless task for the home team on Thursday but there is a need for the key players to stand up.

Injury problems could dog Olympiacos in Euroleague

The away side are boosted by Vassilis Spanoulis, who is still in fantastic form regardless of his age. He has offered an average of 13.6 points per game this season, and the Olympiacos fans still see him as their hero. There is a bigger reliance on Spanoulis for this game because Georgios Printezis, who has offered an average of 12.2 points per game this season, is injured and is likely to miss out. There is a need for Matt Lojeski to play well and his record of 11.4 points per game suggests he can positively impact on games.
