22/01/2016 19:00 – Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade v Unicaja Malaga – Betting Tips
The hosts grabbed a big win on the road in Athens last week, moving them on to a 1-2 record in the Euroleague and Malaga need to get a road victory themselves. The Spanish side are currently 2-1 in the Euroleague but they know that it is their home performances that give them hope. To become a bigger side, they need to grab more wins away from Malaga, and this game will be a key match for both teams and their aspirations for the rest of the season.
The win in Athens last week will provide Zvezda with great confidence and it is essential that they maintain this momentum at home. The victory last week was built on an impressive defensive performance that limited Panathinaikos to just 63 points last week. There is a great deal to be said for starting from the back and if the home side are able to play in that manner again, it could be a long night for Malaga. You should expect Quincy Miller and Maik Zirbes to have a lot of responsibility for the hosts, and if they deliver, it could be a great night for the Belgrade basketball fans.

Malaga need to win away from home
The Spanish side have the best defensive record in the Top 16, allowing an average of 65.7 points per game. This is always a good platform to build from and if the away team are to taste success in Belgrade, it is likely that their defence will be at the forefront of what they do best. Malaga can call on two former Belgrade players, DeMarcus Nelson and Nemana Nedovic, while Mindaugas Kuzminskas is likely to be their most important player. The strength in depth that Malaga have on the wings can make a big difference to any game and this could be where the game is won or lost on Friday evening.
This has the hallmarks of a tight game and you should look to take Unicaja Malaga at +2, which can be found at odds of 1.90. When it comes to the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 153.0, which can be found at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
