24-01-2017 18:00 BST - Ventspils v PAOK - Champions League Betting Tips

The teams in fourth and fifth place in Group C in the FIBA Champions League have their own mini-playoff to see who finishes the highest of the two teams. There is no way for the winner to move into third spot and the loser cannot fall to sixth place, so this is a straight shoot-out between these sides. Ventspils have a 7-6 record at the moment while the Greek side carries a 6-7 record heading into this game. An away win would see the record level at 7-7.

There is also the fact that PAOK won the earlier game between these sides, 85-81 so if the Greeks do win this game, they will have the head to head record against their rivals, with both sharing a 707 record. It is therefore very clear why both teams have to win this game, so there will be a lot at stake when this match tips off on Tuesday evening.
