KK Mornar Bar are keen to become winners
Formed in 1974, just one year after their FIBA Champions League opponents, KK Mornar Bar can also boast of an upturn in fortunes in recent times. While the club cannot claim any major titles, they have came close to success in recent times. They were runners-up in the Montenegrin League in 2010/11 and in the most recent campaign. They also finished runners-up in the Montegrin Cup in 2010 and again in the most recent season. Add in the fact that 2015/16 also saw KK Mornar Bar be runners up in the Balkan League and you have three near misses in the most recent season. Some teams collapse after coming so close and ending up with nothing but surely the Montenegro team will believe they can go one better this season. A good showing in Europe would go a long way to showing their mental and physical strength.
The hosts should be well placed to give themselves an advantage to take for the second leg of this tie, which is played out on Thursday. You can back KK Igokea at -4.5, which is available at odds of 1.83. Anyone that is interested in the Over/Under market will find that going OVER 145.0 which you can find at odds of 1.83 should be an interesting option. Bet Now!
