22-12-2016 18:00 BST - Galatasaray Istanbul v Anadolu Efes - Euroleague Betting Tips

Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul v Anadolu Efes IstanbulWe have our second Istanbul derby of the midweek and both of these teams lost when they played on Tuesday night. The hosts currently have a 4-9 record while the away team, although it is not as if Anadolu Efes are playing away in the Abdi Ipekci Arena, holds a 6-7 record. This alone will see them as the favourites for many people in this Euroleague clash but the Istanbul derbies have been tight and a bit difficult to call this season.

While these two sides know each other very well, this is only the third time that these two Istanbul sides have clashed in the Euroleague. The record stands at 1-1 so the victor of this game takes the bragging rights in a number of ways.

The hosts will definitely rely on their captain and Sinan Guler has definitely led by example this season. With an average of 11.2 points per game and an average of 5.3 assists, he is the player that drives his teammates on. Other players who are likely to have a positive impact for Galatasaray include Vladimir Micov, who has provided an average of 9.8 points per game and Alex Tyus, who has served up an average of 9.2 points per game. If these players hit form, the home fans in this Istanbul derby could be the ones that go home happy.
