22-02-2017 20:30 BST - Umana Reyer Venezia v Ventspils - Champions League Betting Tips
This is shaping up to be one of the most exciting FIBA Champions League Playoff Qualifier games this midweek. This means the basketball betting action should be exciting as there is a great deal up for grabs in this game between Umana Reyer Venezia and Ventspils. The 74-67 victory in favour of Ventspils means the away team on Wednesday night has a lead to defend but it also means that the hosts aren’t too far behind. The 7 points between these teams at tip-off may not seem like a big margin if the Italians get off to a flying start.
Home advantage certainly helped Ventspils last week and you can imagine that Umana will be looking to enjoy that same status at the end of this game. They have the players who have an impact on a game although they’ll be looking for a good showing from Hrvoje Peric, who has provided an average of 11 points per game so far this season. If he can improve on that record in this game, there is a good chance that his team will be progressing in the competition. Melvin Eljim had a strong showing in the previous game, offering an average of 15 points and 6 rebounds. A showing of that calibre could have a big impact on the tie this midweek.

Ventspils want to continue in FIBA Champions League Playoff Qualifier
Ventspils know that they have a bit of leeway heading into this game but that can sometimes hamper a team. If you know that you can lose narrowly and still progress, you can find yourself caught in between different tactics or not knowing what to do for the best. This means you can probably expect Ventspils to focus on their main game and hope that what helped them grab a win in the first game will still be present in the second game of this tie. Willie Deane has provided an average of 13.1 points per game so far this season and he offered 16 points in the first leg. Deane is therefore a key player for Ventspils and will be expected to have an impact on this tie. Maris Gulbis also had a good game in the recent clash between these sides, scoring 12 points and offering 7 rebounds.
