27/11/2014 19:45 – Laboral Kutxa Vitoria v Olympiacos Piraeus

Euroleague Betting Tips - Laboral Kutxa Vitoria v Olympiacos PiraeusGiven that this Group D match is taking place between the team sitting at the top of the group, with a 6-0 record, and the one sitting in second last place, with a 2-4 record, you may be forgiven for thinking that this is going to be a straightforward win for the Greek side Olympiacos. Of course, things don’t always pan out as expected and given that Olympiacos clinched their place in the Top 16 last week, they may not be firing on all cylinders, but they should still have enough about them to take on Laboral Kutxa Vitoria.

After holding a 2-1 record at the end of their third game, Laboral have lost their last three matches, which means they will be desperate to turn their season around. There is still a chance for them to book a place in the Top 16, but there is no doubt that they need to start getting wins on the board.

Euroleague - OlympiacosIf you are the sort of basketball betting fan that likes to look at average points, there isn’t too much to separate the teams. Olympiacos can boast of an average score of 73.67 in the Euroleague this campaign while Laboral Kutxa have an average points score of 75 points in the Euroleague. You may think that this would be enough to tip you in the direction of Kutxa when it comes to placing the bet, but there are many things to take into consideration when betting on basketball games.
