22-02-2017 20:00 BST - MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg v Maccabi Rand Media - Champions League Betting Tips
While there are still some FIBA Champions League Playoff Qualifiers hanging in the balance this midweek, it would be fair to say that the tie taking place in Germany on Wednesday evening should be done and dusted. The first leg resulted in a convincing win for the away side which means that MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg have home advantage and a commanding lead, so they should be in full control. Of course, life doesn’t always pan out in the way you thought it would.
The first game ended 66-83 in favour of the Germans and it is this 17 point margin that will provide the Wednesday night hosts with confidence. You can see why there is an expectation that Ludwigsburg will be in the next round of the tournament but they still have a job to do. In the first leg, Chad Toppert rose to the top of the scoring charts, providing 20 points and 1 rebound over the course of the game. A similar showing from Topper this week will no doubt be enough to see his side through to the next stage of the tournament. There will also be an expectation that Jack Cooley will chip in, as the player has an average of 13.7 points per game and 6.9 rebounds per game so far this season.

Maccabi need a miracle in FIBA Champions League action
For Maccabi, it looks to be a difficult task but hopes will fall on Javon McCrea. The player picked up 10 points and 6 rebounds in the first leg, but that fell short of his usual performance. McCrea is averaging 14.1 points per game so far this season while he has chipped in with an average of 7.3 rebounds per game. A bigger showing this week would help Maccabi but it probably won’t be enough to make a massive difference.
