24/03/2016 17:00 – Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar v Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade – Betting Tips
There are three teams on a 7-4 record in Group E and the teams in second and third place in the group clash in this almighty game. Whoever wins this game will have made a bit of history by reaching the Euroleague playoffs for the first time in their history, so there is definitely all to play for. The losing team will still have a chance to bounce back but winning is the only aim for both teams going into this game.
There is a scenario that both teams could be in the playoffs by the weekend, and if Unicaja Malaga defeat Anadolu Efes Istanbul on Friday, the loser of this game will be celebrating come the weekend. However, no team wants to rely on someone else for a party when you have the chance to clinch it yourself. With respect to the head to head between these two teams, Zvezda hold the advantage at the moments thanks to a big win in Belgrade back in June. Quincy Miller managed to grab 24 points that night and this is the sort of play that the away team will be looking to deliver this week.

The Belgrade side have some momentum
The momentum lies with the away team coming into this game. The hosts have lost two games in a row and against the Belgrade side they are currently 0-3, so they will have some nerves about this game. On the other hand, Crvena Zvezda are flying and come into this game on back to back wins, which is definitely something that will provide them with some confidence. There is no doubt that Lokomotiv can snap out of their late-season funk but against an opponent who will be flying high, it may not be so easy. There is definitely a lot to play for in this game, which means that basketball fans are likely to be the big winners when it comes to the action that will be served up this week.
The bookmakers make the hosts big favourites but it could be closer than they think so taking Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade at +8.5, at odds of 1.90, looks like a good bet. For the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 151.5, at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
