Euroleague Top 16 Betting Tips - Real Madrid v Crvena Zvezda Telekom BelgradeThis is a clash of top versus bottom and while most people will be expecting Madrid to take this game convincingly, there has to be a time when the team from Belgrade ups the ante and pushes on if they are looking to continue their Euroleague campaign. It is probably unlikely that this will happen tonight but regular observers of Euroleague basketball will know that shocks can occur from time to time.

It was a close game when the two teams met earlier in the Top 16 with Madrid only opening the game up in the third quarter. The Spanish giants managed to do this by going on a 0-14 scoring run and Rudy Fernandez was in top form, notching 15 points in the course of the game.
