27/09/2016 18:30 BST – Donar Groningen v BC Tartu – Betting Tips

This first leg tie, taking place in Holland on Tuesday night, has the makings of a classic team. Both of these teams are well known in their domestic league but perhaps don’t have the European pedigree that they would like. This tie provides a chance for the winner to change that situation.

The Dutch side, hailing from Groningen, have a number of domestic triumphs to their name. The club has won the Dutch Championship 5 times, and they are the current holders of the Dutch title, the Dutch Cup 4 times and they have clinched the Dutch Supercup once. European basketball is a different environment but there is no reason why they cannot make their mark on this game. The team have been regular players in the FIBA Eurochallenge or Europe Cup in recent years so it is not as if this outing will phase them or shock them. With the home crowd behind them, Donar could get off to a good start in the opening leg.

BC Tartu have a fantastic history

When it comes to basketball in Estonia, BC Tartu are the team that most people look up to. With 26 domestic Championships and 16 domestic cups, there have been plenty of glory years for BC Tartu but last season was a slight disappointment for the team. This is because they finished runner-up in the league and lost out in the final of the domestic cup. Good teams bounce back from adversity and this European tie offers an early opportunity for Tartu to show that they are looking to make amends this campaign.

At this stage of the season, it is difficult to ascertain which team is in better shape or who will be more up for this game. Both of these teams have the ability to take the lead in the first leg but the onus should be on the Dutch side to grab a lead for the second leg. With this in mind, take Donar at -2.5, which is on offer at odds of 1.83. If you are looking for the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 152.5 which you can find at odds of 1.83Bet Now!
