26/03/2015 19:45 – Olympiacos Piraeus v Anadolu Efes Istanbul

Euroleague Top 16 Betting Tips - Olympiacos Piraeus v Anadolu Efes IstanbulThis will be a very emotional night for Dusan Ivkovic, the head coach of Efes, as he returns to a club where he tasted a great deal of success. Ikvovic took Olympiacos to two continental titles and this will be the first time he has been in Piraeus on competitive duty since he led Olympiacos to Euroleague glory in 2012. No doubt there will be mixed emotions for the home fans who will want to cheer a man who has provided them with so many happy memories, but who is coming with a job to do for his own team. There are more than enough great players on the court to grab attention but this is definitely a night when a lot of eyes will be looking just off the court.

Olympiacos come into this game with a 16-5 record, which consists of an 8-2 record in the regular season and an 8-3 record in the Top 16. This fine form means that Oympiacos should be confident about this game and heading into the playoffs. Anadolu still have work to do and they hold an 11-10 record this campaign. They held a 6-4 record in the regular season and in the Top 16 they currently hold a 5-6 record. With respect to average points scored per game, there is very little to choose between the teams with Anadolu holding a slight advantage by 75.8 to 75.7.
