23/03/2016 19:30 – Laboral Kutxa Vitoria Gasteiz v FC Barcelona Lassa – Betting Tips
This game between two domestic rivals is a huge one for both teams. The hosts know that if results go in their favour, they could be celebrating a playoff spot by the end of the week if they win. However, an away win would pull FC Barcelona Bàsquet onto the same record as Laboral and will make the Catalan club strong favourites to book a playoff spot soon.
Given that Laboral have already defeated Barcelona in the Top 16, winning 78-81 in Catalonia in January, the hosts will have nothing to fear about this game. The Barcelona side has definitely stepped up a gear or two since then but the Laboral fans will be looking to cheer on a big victory that could have a huge impact on the top of the group. That win in Catalonia was pushed on by Ioannis Bourousis, who managed to deliver a massive 24 points that night. Bourousis scores big points but he is also the leading rebounder in the league, with 9.5 rebounds per game, and this has helped push Laboral to the top of the rebounds chart in the Top 16. Ioannis doesn’t do it all himself, players like Davis Bertans, Ilimane Diop and Kim Tillie all help, but there is a star man pulling the strings for the hosts.

The Catalans will be confident
Barcelona come into this game on the back of a big win against Spanish opponents last week, defeating Real Madrid, and they’ll be looking to match that achievement. A win by 4 points or more will provide the Catalan club with a head to head advantage over Laboral and when you consider that win would place them both on a 7-5 record; there is all to play for in this game. Ante Tomic has been in excellent form for Barcelona and while Pau Ribas has been missed, Alex Abrines has enjoyed a welcome return to the team. Juan Carlos Navarro may also make his way back into the team in this game, so there is plenty of skill and experience in the Barcelona side for this big clash.
You can take Barcelona at -1, at odds of 1.90, and this looks like a strong bet. With respect to the Over/Under market, you should look to go OVER 160.5, which is on offer at 1.90. Bet Now!
