22-03-2017 18:00 BST - Pinar Karsiyaka v Umana Reyer Venezia - Champions League Betting Tips
There are two FIBA Champions League quarter-final matches on offer on Wednesday and the first game of the day has Pinar squaring off against Umana. This is likely to be an exciting affair and both sets of players will believe they can get a reasonable result in the first leg, setting themselves up for a good second leg.
One player that will be keen to have a big impact on the game will be Mike Green, who played for Umana last season. The player left Umana for Pinar weeks into the new season, which meant that he had to sit out the games between these teams in the regular season. The Italians drew first blood at home, winning by 75-61 while it was the Turkish team that grabbed a bigger win, triumphing 99-59 at home. The margin of victory wasn’t that important in the regular season but now that we are in the knock-out stages of a tournament, winning isn’t the only thing to consider, teams have to focus on the margin of victory. As Green was the MVP in the Round of 16, he is ideally placed to have an impact on this tie and he will be keen to lead his new club to a victory (and preferably two) over his former side.

Umana can do well in FIBA Champions League
The fact that Umana prevailed over a strong Besiktas team, who had looked in fine form in the regular season indicates that the team at home in the first leg have a strength about them that could see them go a long way in the FIBA Champions League. Umana have defeated Ventspils in the playoff qualifier round and then they made their way past Sidigas Avellino to reach this stage, and they have found it tough along the way. However, the fact that the Italians have reached this stage of the FIBA Champions League indicates that they know how to battle and fight as well as play exciting basketball at times.
For the first leg, take Pinar Karsiyaka at -7, at odds of 1.83. When you are looking for the Over/Under market, go OVER 145.5 at odds of 1.83. Bet Now!
