Spread Pick: CSKA Moscow with handicap -5 at 1.90 Over/Under: Over 157 1.90 Bet Now!
27/11/2014 19:00 – Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv v CSKA Moscow
Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv are finding out something that sports fans have always known and that is everyone is desperate to beat the champions. Last season, Maccabi were a bit of a surprise package and while teams gave them hard games, they were just an ordinary opponent. This season, there is an extra level of hunger and desire in the teams that Maccabi face, and this has ensured that the reigning champions have endured a slightly tough time of late.
It is not as if a 4-2 record is a disaster but they are sitting third in Group B and they are coming into this game facing a team with a 6-0 record. CSKA Moscow have already booked their passage to the Top 16 but the Russian side will still be looking to finish as high in their group as they possibly can. This means that it is unlikely that they will drop their performance levels too much in Israel and the chance to defeat the reigning champions on their own turf is likely to appeal to the Moscow team.
