24-01-2017 20:30 BST - Khimik v Maccabi Rand Media - Champions League Betting Tips

Eighth plays seventh in Group B in the FIBA Champions League but with the hosts already eliminated, this isn’t quite the do or die clash that some were hoping for when the fixture list was announced. However, this is a massive game for the away side because they currently hold a 6-7 record, just like the three teams above them in the game. None of the 6-7 teams are playing each other so all permutations are up for grabs.

If only of these teams wins, that team would move to a 7-7 record above three rivals on a 6-8 record and Maccabi have to give themselves a chance of being that team if other results go in their favour. At the very least Maccabi are dropping into the FIBA Europe Cup but a win could see them move up to fourth spot, which comes with a guaranteed place in the qualifiers. Even if other teams around them get a result, a win could still see Maccabi in with a shot of progressing in this tournament.
