Spread Pick: Fenerbahce with handicap -2.5 at 1.90 Over/Under: Under 152.5 1.90 Bet Now!
22/01/2015 19:45 – EA7 Emporio Armani Milan v Fenerbahce Ulker
These two teams have already faced off against each other in Euroleague competition this season with the Turkish side holding the upper hand in both games. It would therefore be easy to conclude that Fenerbahce are the favourites for this one but the Top 16 can add a new level of pressure to a basketball game and Milan will be desperate to gain some revenge for the two defeats they suffered at the hands of Fenerbahce in the initial group stages.
It will be a big game for Linas Klezia with the Milan player taking on his former team and he will need to have a big game if the home side are going to get anything out of this match.

The Turkish side need to kick-start their Top 16 hopes and dreams
